Carmine is one of the best looking vintage Sheaffer celluloids. Pair that with the celluloid grip section found only on these 2nd generation Triumphs and you have a pen that is simply gorgeous.
The pen is in excellent condition. The barrel transparency and clarity are very good. There are no flaws in the celluloid or plating. The nib is a larger & longer LIFETIME rather than the shorter tined 59 & 79 nibs. It writes a firm, wet fine line. The long tines of this nib make it a true, round fine.
I have large hands and find no trouble in using this pen without posting the cap. However, the cap posts easily and firmly to make this pen comfortable for those who prefer a longer pen.
The filling system has been restored with modern synthetic materials. They will last for decades with an occasional bit of silicone grease applied to the filler rod. The filler restoration is guaranteed for at least one year.
