    Default Post-War Sheaffer "Sovereign II" (?) Wire Band Question

    What is the standard length of the immediate post-war wire cap line of Sheaffer pens? A relative bought me a green stripe Sheaffer that might be a "Sovereign II" - white dot, wire cap band, triumph nib. It has the post-war type clip like you'd find on a Touchdown pen. But what is striking is how small the pen is - it's 5 inches long. Is that the "standard" length for these immediate post-war, wire band pens? Anyone ever do a guide on these pens?

    Hi @Ray, after March 01, 1945 (with spiral finger grip) with White Dot*, large clip (non tuckaway clip) and wire cap band only can be Sovereign II*

    *In this particular case; if the nib is stamped Lifetime the guarantee is on the nib only; all other parts excluded. Is not stamped Lifetime no Lifetime guarantee.

    Interesting - thanks to both of you. This pen matches the pen above in the picture. I had thought it might be a "short" or a "lady" model at first because it's only 5 inches long. But maybe this is actually the standard size and the lady pen is even shorter with a shortened clip to match. This one has the full-length clip. It looks to me like it might make a nice, compact shirt pocket pen to take to meetings. The pen is a lever filler.
