Sheaffer BHR Ringtop
Material: Black Hard Rubber, GP cap crown
Date c. 1910-19
|Nib: Flexy 14K #3
This is an unusual early lever filler. Black chased hard rubber, with clear imprint, no lever box and straight lever. Also unusual is the gold-filled ring top. I have seen these with clips, and with more typical cap bands, never with this little cap top. Seems like a smooth flexy F-M nib, marked ‘self-filling, but needs a sac. I’m a little leery of messing with this one, since I have not been able to coax the section out yet, so I will likely send it out… Sweet little pen though!
