Stamped on the cap lip. The barrel has a Matte Black finish. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel.The trim is perfect with no scratches, denting, or brassing. This Fountain Pen measures 5 1/2" inches capped and 5 3/4" inches posted. This Sheaffer Legacy 2 has the Touchdown Filling System and works as it was designed to - I tested with water and works perfectly. The Pump moves smoothly and easy to operate. One can also use the supplied ink cartridges instead of the Touchdown Filling System. This Sheaffer Legacy 2 has an 18K Solid Gold Fine Nib - it shows a hint of flexibility which is unusual for these Sheaffer nibs.
The nib is marked 18K Sheaffer 750 and has a point measuring. 52mm when using digital calipers. This Sheaffer Legacy 2 Fountain Pen comes with the original boxes, factory papers, 2 ink cartridges, and the pen is still wrapped in the original plastic sleeve.
Jim Gaston had 3 different versions made - they are as follows: 1 a Sandblasted Copper, 2 all Linear Gold Pattern, 3 and this one the Gold Linear Cap with Matte Black Barrel. This Sheaffer Legacy 2 Fountain Pen has a great color combination with Black and Gold and feels well balanced in the hand. I would consider this Sheaffer Legacy 2 to be New Old Stock, Never Inked and in Mint Condition. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.Please review all my images as they are part of the description. If you have any questions, please ask.
