Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 158

Today's installment of our pen club's virtual "show & tell" features yet another handsome vintage desk set recently purchased by longtime VPC member Stuart...

Stuart: "A lovely Sheaffer desk-set arrived yesterday, another Intelcom Express delivery.  This one has a beautiful green onyx base with some red-brown veins and patches in it, and a wide pen-groove on the forward edge. "


"The base is gorgeous and in excellent shape. It was so carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap, it took me ten minutes to unravel it!  Better too much packing than too little.  It came from Wisconsin and some of the packing was flyers from grocery stores - the prices are much better than what we pay, LOL!"  

"The pen has a No. 33 point with a Fine or Medium-Fine tip.  It’s a TD (Touchdown) system, and the O-rings have perished and it won’t fill.  Otherwise the set's all in great condition."

Congratulations on another wonderful find for your desk set collection, Stuart, and thank you for sharing it with us :)
