SOLD: Sheaffer Crest Nova Laque Fountain Pen, huge 18k Broad Triumph nib

_MG_0607 _MG_0608 _MG_0609For sale is a Cadmium Yellow Sheaffer Crest Nova Laque fountain pen. The Nova Laque models were introduced in 1996. What makes the Nova Laque pens so special is the finish: 23 layers of Laque finish were applied to the pen with hand decoration underneath, giving each pen a unique appearance.

The brass cap and barrel give this thin pen a commanding weight in the hand. It weighs 24.2g and measures 142.5mm capped, 125.4mm uncapped, and 166.5mm posted with a barrel diameter of 11.25mm. The cap features a 1/4 inch wide, 23 karat gold electroplated cap band and a 23 karat gold electroplated innerspring clip with the instantanly recognizable Sheaffer White Dot inlaid at the top.

The conical, two-tone palladium plated, Triumph 18 karat gold nib is stamped “SHEAFFER” over “18K” and “750″. It features a buttery smooth broad tip that’s just begging to be stubbed, which would be included in the price of the pen the buyer so chooses.

The retail price for this cartridge/converter filling fountain pen was $235 when it was first released in 1996. You can get this near mint piece  for only $100. SOLD
