There is one good thing about Sheaffer. They don't always make limited edition pens. At least not annually. There is one thing I learn from all these years of pursuing LE pens...the pen maybe limited in number, but the theme is unlimited.
The Sheaffer Victorian series is a special edition. Launch in 2005, the number of pens produce is based number of orders from Sheaffer dealers. There are 400 pieces made for US market. No information on worldwide orders. Pen makers always have to deal of problems of leftover stock if an LE pen is don't sell well. Special Edition or low LE numbers are the safest.

This is the pen the start it all. The first pen in my collection.
In 1996, Sheaffer decided to make a series of Asian theme pens. They start the Asia Series.
The Royal Selangor Bamboo pewter pen is the first in the series.
