Sheaffer Gold-Filled Ring Top – Medium Flex

Here is a near mint Sheaffer gold-filled ring top with a 14kt. Sheaffer Self-Filling nib. The pen looks to have hardly ever been used. There is brassing or dents anywhere on the pen. It is personalized to an “E.Ptacke.” Other than that, the pen appears to be pretty flawless. The nib writes as a nice XF. The nib really does have the potential to be a possible super flex, but the feed just doesn’t keep up so you have to keep the flexing around the 1.3mm-1.6mm range or you will start getting railroading. A beautiful, nearly pristine pen.
