Vintage Pens: 2255: Sheaffer: Statesman
One of the rarer colors of the Sheaffer snorkel line of pens is this Buckskin Tan (It looks pink to us, but what do we know?). It is especially exciting to see the matching white dot cap! We have fully restored this Sheaffer Statesman with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The conical "triumph" nib is made of "Palladium Silver," writing a delightfully smooth, wet medium line. No cracks, light surface wear. Hmmm. Great Rube Goldberg filling system, rarer color, great writing nib...what's not to love?! 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2119: Sheaffer: Admiral
Rube Goldberg, himself, couldn't have designed a better fountain pen than the Sheaffer Snorkel. This Sheaffer Admiral comes in the rarer "buckskin" color and has a restored filling system with a good ink sac and brand new O-ring and point seal. To fill these awesome pens, you push in on the tail cap and unscrew until it clicks. You will see the snorkel extending from under the 14k monotone gold nib. Pull up the tail cap, dip the snorkel tip in ink and push down on the tail cap with your finger. Bubbles, or old ink, will come out of the snorkel. Wait a second or two, and pull the snorkel out of the water and screw the snorkel back into the pen by turning the tail cap clockwise. There are a couple little stains on the back of the cap, but, the pen is, otherwise, nearly perfect. The nib writes a very smooth 1950s Sheaffer extra-fine line. More like a modern Japanese regular fine, today. 14.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1924: Sheaffer: Valiant Admiral
Here's a riddle wrapped inside a mystery. This Sheaffer Snorkel is giving us fits. It has an Valiant cap that matches the burgundy Admiral body, which has the most buttery smooth 14k medium (M2) nib. Only Sheaffer Admirals had open, gold monotone nibs. Normally, we'd say it is a married set, BUT the imprint is a little off, too. "W.A. Sheaffer Pen Co. / Fort Madison, Iowa, URSA / Made in USA." Did you notice the out-of-place "R"? It is actually larger than the USA font, falling between and on top of the "U.S". We don't know if that gives any significance to the pen, but you sure don't see many typos like that in the imprint. We restored the seals and gaskets, and this pen is writing and filling like new. No cracks, only light wear. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1732: Sheaffer: PFM V
Few Sheaffer pens are as desired as much as the Sheaffer PFM series. Ours is a Sheaffer PFM V. This is the pinnacle of the PFM (Pen for Men) line, as it has a gold-plated cap and tail piece. Ours is in very good to excellent condition. You can see a little wear on the cap and barrel, but there are no egregious dents,cracks or deep scratches. The metal surfaces have light surface scratches from careful daily use. The snorkel filling system is in great working condition. We don't know when it was last restored, but the pen works perfectly. The inlaid 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. It is very firm but very reasonable with which to write. There can be a little feedback at some angles, but nothing extra-fine lovers haven't come to expect. The wide body is so nice for gripping without cramping. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
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.
