[SOLD]Sheaffer Targa 1005 w/Box $68
[SOLD]Sheaffer Targa w/Box
A near mint condition Sheaffer Targa 1005 with outer sleeve and hardshell box. The gold plating on this pen is immaculate. Writes like a dream. It is a glassy smooth Medium with a touch of softness to give a bit of line variation when writing with pressure. The outer sleeve seems to be from another Targa, but would've been the same style sleeve for this one. The beautiful inlaid nib that screams Sheaffer is 23k gold electroplated, but writes the same or better as the solid gold nibs on Targas that I have came across. Pen will come with a Targa piston type converter. This is a large pen and would be great for daily writing or signatures. The Targa is a classic pen very fitting for the office, but equally at home on a desk giving glassy smooth performance. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements for the pen are: 13.5cm capped, 15.5cm posted, and 12cm unposted.
