Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Crest
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Sheaffer Crest fountain pens are easily identified by their gold-filled caps on normal Sheaffer Snorkel pens. This vintage pen sports a nice pastel green barrel. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. The snorkel itself is a rare 14k gold tube. Just wait until you with the pen. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a super smooth medium line. There's only a little wear an light scratching on the body. The cap is free of scratches and dents, except directly under the clip, which is a little off kilter. Filing it under "Nobody's Perfect," the skirted nib has a little seepage where the gold meets the plastic. We have tried sealing it with rubber cement to no avail. It will seep. As it is a great writer, be sure just not to hold it that low, and you'll be fine. When full, keep it nib up when not in use, and that will also minimize seepage. 14cm capped.
