Was recently able to purchase a new/old stock Sheaffer lever fill pen.The pen is just like the one I used back in high school,except for the stampings on the nib.The old pen is stamped Sheaffer and below that a capital M.The new/old pen is the same nib, except it is stamped Sheaffer and below that the number 343.The barrels of both pens are marked Sheaffer Made in Canada.
Neither pens would have been expensive pens when new.The old pen was purchased new back in 1969 at a drug store.The caps do not screw on,but you just pull to take the cap off and push to put the cap back on.The new/old pen writes just the I remember the old one writing.Smooth with good ink flow.Better than a lot of more expensive pens I own.
A neighbour gave me an old full bottle of Canadian made Sheaffer Peacock Blue.The bottle and box are just like the ones I used back in high school.Was just going to keep the old ink,but I have been using it in the new/old pen.Brings back a lot of good memories of times gone by.
Sheaffer Peacock Blue and Parker Super Quink Turquoise were the two inks I used back in high school.Was able to get a full bottle of Canadian made Parker Super Quink Turquoise ink off E bay,not too long ago.It is in the same bottle and box design as what I used in high school.Now I have the new/old pen and two bottles of the same bottles and ink like I used back then to help keep some memories alive for quite sometime.
No idea of what model Sheaffer these pens are.Too bad I am unable to post pictures as I am sure some one would know the model number.
