This junior size 1920s Sheaffer flat top is a beauty. The nib is marked SHEAFFERS/ 3-25/ Made In USA. The barrel engraving is in good condition and reads: WA SHEAFFER CO / PAT AUG 25, O8 FORT MADISON IA USA / DEC 1012 JAN 27-OCT 20 N-NOV24 14. I have not been able to find any reference for these date codes and Sheaffer generally did not use a date code. The pen is in wonderful condition with only some minor surface scratches. It measures 4.75 in length.
