Vintage Pens: 1927: Sheaffer: Sovereign
Enjoy a doubly rare treat with our Sheaffer Sovereign fountain pen. The Sovereigns were the only Sheaffer snorkel pens to feature a metal cap with wavy lines for decoration. Plus, sage green is one of the rarer colors to find in the snorkel lines. Ours is restored to good working order with a new point seal and O-ring. (The sac was in good working condition.) The two-tone 14k gold F3 nib looks as if it is in mint condition. It writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback, which is no worse than every extra-fine nib. Works great. The cap and barrel both show significant signs of light-surface wear. No cracks or deep scratches, but this pen was clearly a daily user back in the day. Still, it is really hard to see most of the wear at arm's length. Click the headline for closeups. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1925: Sheaffer: Admiral Set
We adore the Rube Goldberg enthusiasm of Sheaffer's engineers and designers when creating snorkel pens such as this Sheaffer Admiral set! The Sheaffer Admiral was upgrade above the snorkel series base model. Yet, its monotone 14k gold nib makes all the difference in the world. This M2 model nib writes a very smooth medium line. We restored it with a new point seal and O-ring. The dealer we bought it from seems to have already put in a new ink sac. It works great. Click the headline font for a closer look. The matching pencil is in great working order. No cracks on either and minimal wear. Almost like new!

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: 1789: Sheaffer: Admiral
Sage Green is one of the more difficult Sheaffer colors to find. We have fully restored our Sheaffer Admiral with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It looks pretty good for a vintage pen that was also a user. It has light wear and shallow scratches, but it is difficult to see any of it at arm's length. No cracks blemish any part of this pen, not even around the clip anchors. There is a little rust on the spring. It takes just a little extra effort to twist out and retract the snorkel. The 14k gold F2 nib writes a smooth, wet medium line. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1732 Sheaffer PFM V

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
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.
