    Default What model sheaffer do I have?

    I think I may be missing some parts for the sac. But I need to stare out by what pen it is. sheafer pen.JPG

    I'm no specialist in Sheaffer but I think that your pen is a Sheaffer Balance "Vacuum Fill Pen", so that you rather need a proper restoration of the several filler seals than an ink sac.

    Christof is spot-on: Sheaffer Balance vacuum-filler. It's a little hard to tell which model (size) it is from the photo. This is *not* a pen you restore yourself if you have not done quite a few easier restorations. I would suggest looking at this restoration page on Richard Binder's site for complete information on the filling system. It's very educational.

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."
