Sheaffer Small Flat Top Self Filling – Good Flex

This is a “vest” size early Sheaffer Flat Top. The pen is made of BCHR that is quite a bit thicker than a Waterman, so the pen feels rather substantial for it’s size. There is minimal fading and the chasing is still quite crisp. Imprints have a little wear, but are mostly readable. There is some brassing on the clip and lever. The band has some light scratching but little brassing. The band has the initials “C.L.B.” engraved on it. The only major flaw is the chip out of threaded part of the barrel (See pics). The cap still threads as normal. The nib is a Sheaffer’s #2 Self Filling that has some good flex. I graded it “Good,” but the nib has Super flex capability. However, the feed at times cannot keep up. If you learn the pen and find the right pace, this can be a good flexing pen.
