Sheaffer Pocket Size “Self Filling” Nib  – Medium Flex

Here is a pocket size Sheaffer flat top in BCHR. It does not appear to have had an original clip but was given an accommodation clip. The pen still quite black with minimal fading. Chasing and imprints are good. The lever appear to be nickel plated and has some plate loss. The clip also has some plate loss as some rust. The 14kt. Sheaffer “Self-Filling” #2 nib is nice XF that has medium flex ability. Some would call this a semi-flex. The nib is capable of more range, but as is often the case with these early Sheaffers the feed can’t keep up. Still the flex comes fairly easy. This is still a pretty nice looking little pen with some flex.
