Condition and information:

A truly gorgeous original late 1930s Sheaffer 350 pen, here in a vivid and nice tortoise green stripes or as some collectors call it the watermelon striped. The pen is simply gorgeous, it is one of the often overlooked pens but its a true perfection in simplicity. The form factor, handling and feel in the hand are perfect. There were many variants of the Balance 350 model, it was produced from mid 30s to mid 40s, and it was a well established pen at the time. The pen here is a more rarely seen model, where the caps band is actually a ring with circular form and its placed at the lower end of the cap, unlike most models which have a flat ring placed approx. 5mm from the edge of the cap. This was done in order to prevent cracks at one of the most susceptible cracking points on the cap, i.e. below the cap's ring. The pen also features a beautiful see-through amber color grip section. This served basically as the ink window as one can virtually see the ink level through the section. The pen has an amazing form factor, something only vintage Sheaffer pens offer, the original torpedo shape. Sheaffer was one of the most innovative pen companies, broke every rule in the book, and took the fountain pen design and functionalities to another level. The pen uses a simple but very reliable lever bladder filling system. It functions flawlessly with the new sac installed. This is a very simple, fun and easy to use filling system. The nib is large, made out of solid 14K gold marked "33" and placed over an ebonite feed with capillary extension inside the sac in order to fill the pen more fully. It also features a heart shaped breading hole. The nib is smooth F fine size, very pleasant to write it with constant uninterrupted ink flow. Very ergonomic grip section fits just right in the hand. The pen is in absolute mint condition, minimal to no signs of use, no dings, scratches or cracks, perfectly preserved and functional, ready to be used.
