Sheaffer BCHR Ring Top – Super Flex (SOLD)

Sheaffer BCHR Ring Top – Super Flex

This Sheaffer ring top is in superb condition. The black chased hard rubber is as black as the day it was purchased and the chasing looks virtually untouched as well. Imprints are also perfect. The last patent date on this one is from 1914. The ring top and lever are in great condition as well with no brassing (the dark spot toward the front of the lever was just some old ink I have sinned removed). The feed on this is not the original Sheaffer feed but another vintage ebonite feed because Sheaffer feeds of this era were terrible at keeping up with flexing. And this pens feed was no exception. The 14kt. Sheaffer “Self-Filling” nib is a buttery smooth writing F (0.4mm) that is quite wet. The flex comes quite easily and goes all the way to BBB (1.8mm). A great Near Mint Sheaffer.
