Haven't had much time to Antique Mall it lately but I did find some nice stuff in Decatur, IL this week. The Jotters are covered in the Parker forum in a couple of posts from the World Famous Hotel Bathroom Studio. Here is an unposed shot in a Sheaffer box from recent decades. The box is nice except for the fact that the outer cover is peeling off onto anything it touches. Very poor quality box material used.


There are Sheaffer Targa Ballpoints and a spotless Morrison's 14K GF pencil that the pencil brothers (term of endearment) would like (Jonathon, Michael & Joe).


One Targa BP is #1020 Imperial Brass which nicely matches my original set purchased new in Huntsville, AL in 1986. I also bought the matching accessories with my initials engraved in them but threw out the box (stupid me). http://www.sheaffert...ss classic3.JPG

I did not have the BP so that's a nice bonus and a keeper.


The second Targa is #683, the Medici Diamond as shown on the SheafferTarga website. Neither refills work so I'll have to replace them.
