Group of fountain pen nibs last lived in the Sheaffer Pen Co in Fort Madison

This group of fountain pen nibs last lived in the Sheaffer Pen Co in Fort Madison, however they are all in envelopes marked Radiant Point Pen Corp, 270 Lafayette Street, New York City. Each envelope is marked by hand with the nib number , brief info and the date 6-12-40. It seems reasonable that Sheaffer was perhaps exploring nib makers for gold plated nibs at this time. Each marked Warranted Iridium Tip.


Set of 2 Sheaffer Sales Convention Ribbons. One each from 1950 and 1951

Sheaffer Sales Convention Ribbons Set of 2. One each from 1950 and 1951. Small brass frame at the top pin on back has space for insertion of a name. Each measures 5.25 x 2 1/8 inches. The ribbons with gold foil imprints were both badly wrinkled and we’ve ironed out most of the wrinkles.  To where they are just a little wavy now. Hmmm…1950 and 1951, I would think the news would be how successful the recently introduced Touchdown Fountain Pens and perhaps some buzz about the soon to come Snorkel? There are many past photos in the Sheaffer Pen Museum of past Sales Conventions which were held i

Sheaffer Prototype or Shop Model Fountain Pen

SH4721  Sheaffer Prototype or Shop Model Fountain Pen. No markings at all. Long steel nib with feed measures 2 1/8 inches. Where a cartridge would normally fit into the point end, there is a small black plug, permanently fixed. Black cap with integral ribbed one inch band, there is no inner cap, small cap opening where black plug at top of nib unit fits into. Bright steel angular clip looks like the plan could have been to turn it into a very modern looking reminder clip, however the clip is fixed. Measures 5.5 inches long from point end to top of cap. Quite unusual! (1 avail) 


Sheaffer No-Nonsense Factory Prototype

SH4272  I should clarify that this is most likely NOT a tool to fix No Nonsense pen, but a tool made to fit into a NoNonsense pen to be used in the factory. Just as pens are great tools for writing, a pen barrel and cap make a perfect vehicle for a tool, easy to keep in a worker’s pocket and lots of space in the barrel for the tool. This black No Nonsense has a steel stylus on the nib end and when you unscrew the barrel, a round diamond shaped steel file is inside. The barrel has some light surface wear.
