Sheaffer 500 Desk Pen


Sheaffer 500 Desk Pen

Color: Burgundy
Material: Plastic
Filler: Cartridge/Converter
Date c. 1962-84
Nib: M Steel
Working? Yes

Another oddball from Sheaffer’s mid-century lineup: the ‘Dolphin’ nib. An odd mimic of the inlaid nib, the ‘dolphin’ nibs ranged from basic steel to 14K, both hallmarked and unhallmarked. Designed to appeal to a lower pice bracket, these pens didn’t stay in production long, and are now sought after by collectors of mid-century Sheaffers. This one is a desk pen, with a huge caramel swirl marble base. Seems to be unused NOS condition, as pen and base still have stickers, though they are faded.
