None of my oft-present facetiousness with this one. I'm happy to offer peek at what really is an Earth-shattering (dare we say galaxy detonating? Perhaps not. I hate hyperbole) find in the world of vintage Sheaffer Balance collecting. From the George Beck (Sheaffer Exec VP during the 1940s 1950s) personal collection I recently purchased after it was found by a fellow pen hunter. I'll put together a detailed story of the sequence of events that led o the pen and to information about the pen, but that might have to wait four months (guess why). But, here is the paper and the pen. You saw it first at the facebook Fountain Pens Group. You do see what's neat? It's enough to make this hack amateur newbie Sheaffer collector very happy. I'm happy. I'm David. *epiphany*... Happy David!
