NOS Sheaffer Targa Fountain Pen and Mechanical Pencil Set


Price £150 GBP plus shipping at cost

Colour 1083 Laque Black Spiral 

"Elegant spiral design in black laque finish with narrow cap band, with 23 carat gold electroplated trim, fitted with a 14 carat solid gold nib. The depth and quality of this finish is a result of being individually hand lacquered 14 times and polished, also by hand, to deep, luminous glow." - SheafferTarga.com

The 1083 Laque Black Spiral is a relatively difficult to find, highly collectable, top of the line finish. It is cousin to the LE 1083a Laque Ivory Spiral and part of the Luxury Collection. 

This set is stickered and boxed.


Being an impoverished student and an amateur fountain pen user, I had stuck with a Chinese Hero fountain pen for nearly 2 years now.  It costs RMB16 and it writes amazingly.  It was smooth, slightly springy - the way that a left-hander like me would love. 

Nevertheless, by meeting this person, I was introduced to overseas brands.  I was offered a LAMY AL-star and the Sheaffer Prelude, at a very, very silly price.  They came yesterday, well packaged.  The LAMY was the full aluminum version, while the Sheaffer was brushed chrome and gold trim; the latter was given a new nib.  The pen’s exterior has no scratches, whatsoever - very well maintained.  Both pens are awesome writers, and like those online reviews have mentioned, very well made.  I’m not going to review the pens thoroughly, as a lot of people had already done that. 

All I have to say is that I enjoy very much the buying experience and also conversing with the seller regarding fountain pens.
