This is a Sheaffer Triumph Crest Lifetime Vacuum-Fil in Golden Brown c1942-1944. Sheaffer announced the new Triumph line to dealers in January, 1942 after four years of development, introducing one of Sheaffer's iconic nibs, the Triumph sheath point, a conical 14 karat gold palladium plated two-tone nib. Because of World War II, production was limited as Sheaffer shifted much of its manufacturing to military parts to support the war effort. The Triumph line included two Crest models, the Crest Triumph and the clipless Crest Triumph Tuckaway. The pen is about 5 5/16 inches long capped and sold for $15.00 and the matching pencil sold for $6.00. The cap is 1/10 14 karat gold filled. Sheaffer offered these pens as either lever or Vacuum-fil types in Black or Golden Brown. The Sheaffer White Dot is on the end of the barrel.
