I’ve been hunting a nice Ebonized Pearl Balance for ages! It’s the smaller size, just a touch bigger than the Jr. line, but a beautiful finish, with no discoloration. The visulated section is one of the clearest I’ve seen from a pen of this era. It has some drawer wear, but no brassing, and a strong imprint. And of course, it’s a sweet writer; it’s a vintage Sheaffer!
