The Statesman was sort of the high-normal for this line. Of standard length and width, it shared a price point with the oversized Premier, but to spend more on a Sheaffer one was looking at stepping up to some non-standard hardware. It bears a white dot and the point is marked LIFETIME and has a two-tone mask. It may be compared to the Admiral, which is the same but for the point and dot.
