This little Sheaffer is one of the smoothest writers I have ever used. It’s not a lifetime or white-dot model, and I haven’t found any examples quite exactly like it. I’ve seen them in jade green marble, and a sort of grey pearl with black ends, and a black with a single wide band. But never quite like this one. It’s in beautiful condition, too. Look at that imprint! I think it will be part of my at home rotation.
