Sheaffer Balance OS


Sheaffer Balance OS

Color: Marine Green Striated
Material: Celluloid
Filler: Lever
Date c. 1930-35
Nib: XF
Working? Yes

Gorgeous green striated Balance, but the nib is a bit too fine for me. It’s a shame, because this is a gorgeous example of a greet striated finish, with no discoloration (the darker areas in the photo are a mix of the pattern and shadow; you can see from the nib photo that the barrel is quite bright!) I would call this one almost an accountant nib. Not quite as fine as my Imperial VIII, but pretty close!
