Pre-Owned Pens: 1941 Sheaffer Legacy
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1980-present
Price: $149.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 1941: Sheaffer: Legacy
Sheaffer brought its PFM and Imperial pens back to life in this retro modern fountain pen. The Sheaffer Legacy is an exciting reintroduction for the TouchDown filling system. Ours is unrestored but in great working order. The cap and barrel are made of metal that gives the pen a bit more presence in your hand. The most remarkable part about this pen is its 18k gold italic nib! Click the headline for a closeup. The nib is more of a true italic with rough edges when you abandon the sweet spot. Great line variation. It is awesome and a good intro for anyone wanting to explore italic writing. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1927 Sheaffer Sovereign
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
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: 1928 Sheaffer Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 1928: Sheaffer: Craftsman
After the failed Vacuum filler and before the Snorkel, Sheaffer had 4 great years with the simple pneumatic-filling TouchDown system. This Sheaffer Craftsman is a great starter pen or daily driver for anybody exploring late 1940s Sheaffer filling systems. We have fully restored this one with a new ink sac and O-ring. The 14k gold "Feather Touch" nib writes a nice, wet, smooth medium line. The plated two-tone finish is mostly faded to monotone base-level solid 14k gold. The pen has lots of wear but no cracks. The cap band is raised above the cap surface, which seems odd but it doesn't effect anything. The viewing window is still visible but very dark orange. An awesome daily writer. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1925 Sheaffer Admiral Set
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
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
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $85.00
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: 1916 Sheaffer Lifetime Ringtop
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1916: Sheaffer: Lifetime Ringtop
Stunning is the only way to describe this sample of "Marine Green" in this Sheaffer Lifetime Ringtop fountain pen. It looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. We restored it with a new ink sac. It looks as if you could go swimming in the depths of the layers of green celluloid as they reflect the light around you. No cracks. Minimal wear. An unusually short lever. The original 14k gold Lifetime nib writes a razor-sharp extra-fine line. No brassing, bold imprint. Click the headline to see more. 10.5cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 1921 Sheaffer Sentinel
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 1921: Sheaffer: Sentinel
Reviving the Sentinel name, Sheaffer brought forth this fountain pen in the 1980s or '90s. It bears a striking resemblance to the Mont Blanc Noblesse, which is unusual for Sheaffer designers. Still it is a nice slender preowned fountain pen in excellent condition. The alloy nib is marked both "F-4" and "M,"over the years those would imply two conflicting nib designations. Either way, it writes a nice, smooth fine-medium line with only a hint of feedback. It uses cartridges or a converter but comes with neither. It does include its original box and papers. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1917 Sheaffer Imperial (Dolphin)
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 1917: Sheaffer: Imperial (Dolphin)
One Sheaffer's last fountain pens marketed to the masses at the tail end of the original fountain pen era was its Imperial. Our Sheaffer Imperial is particularly noteworthy for its "dolphin" nib. These were factory-made nibs in which they had cut away the complete inlay nib and installed more of a cowled nib such as the Parker 51. It is a neat oddity for your collection, and this steel or palladium nib writes a nice, smooth medium line. This is a cartridge-only pen, unless you can find a Sheaffer converter to fit it. The cap is mostly okay, but the section and barrel show a fair amount of wear from use. 13.4cm capped.
