This 1936 #5 Feather-Touch lever-filler Balance set is the beautiful ebonized pearl. The trim is gold-filled, which warmly complements the material of the cap and barrel. The nib is a two-toned, fine. This set is new-old-stock, mint in the original box.
The Feather-Touch nibs were usually two-toned, like this one. Sheaffer claims the plating on the slit-wall could improve ink flow. (See Richard Binder’s glossary for more information.)
This set is sold, but keep an eye on new catalogs for more Sheaffers!
