We have no idea who Solly Schraeder was, but Solly had a great name. Solly also had a great vintage pen in this Sheaffer Sentinel. We fully restored this great piece of fountain pen engineering with a new O-ring and point seal. Somebody else had seemingly put in a new ink sac before we found it. The best part of this pen is that it has a first-year solid 14k gold snorkel! Solly put this pen to good use, but it only has light to moderate surface wear. No cracks, deep scarring scratches or dents. The two-tone Triumph 14k gold nib writes a firm fine line. 14.2cm capped.
