Sheaffer 550


Sheaffer 550 (Quasi-Imperial)

Color: Burgundy
Material: Plastic
Filler: Cartridge/Converter
Date c. 1970s?
Nib: GP Steel M Inlaid
Working? Yes

Yet another of the seemingly endless variants on the ‘Imperial’ of the 60s-80s. This one is a cartridge/converter model, with gold-plated trim. I’ve seen 550s with the ‘arrow’ shaped cutout as well as the short diamond, so who knows? It’s a Sheaffer inlaid nib, and I’ve yet to find a bad one, so I’m content, anyway….
