I believe there are too few green vintage fountain pens. I have nothing against the other colors of celluloid. But, there is something special about green and it seems less common when compared to brown and black vintage pens.

This is a 1st generation Sheaffer Triumph from 1942 or early 1943. It is made with a 14k gold nib and vermeil trim - 14k gold plated silver. During world war II all brass was restricted to use for defense purposes. So the underlying metal used by Sheaffer in making clips and cap bands was silver. The silver can be seen inside the cap lip or in the case of plating loss.⁣⁣

The barrel has very good clarity in order to see the ink level. There is some plating loss on the clip end. Otherwise the condition is remarkable.

The nib is amazing. Most pens of this era seem to have fine or extra-fine nib points. There is nothing wrong with those. Larger points, as on this pen, tend to be less common. A less common point and less common color celluloid makes this an extra nice pen. The point is not stubbed but it is rather blunt shaped. It produces line variation that is quite close to that of a stub. It's a fun, smooth and wet writing experience.
