This is another nice example from the iconic Balance range made in the USA by Sheaffer around 1940. This the smaller sized 500 pen and it is finished in the very attractive striated Red and Black with gold filled trim to the clip, cap ring and lever.
The pen is fitted with a lovely Extra Fine 14ct nib which writes very smoothly. It is a lever filler and it has been fully serviced.
The condition is very good with only light wear marks and scratches. There is a personalised inscription on the barrel - "Thomas E Prout" which is shown on the photographs.
