Vintage Pens: 1829: Sheaffer: 875 Lifetime Military Clip
During the war years, soldiers were not allowed to have a pen that stuck up above their breast pockets. Sheaffer cleverly worked around the regulations by inventing these clips that hid the pen below the level of the breast pocket on a uniform. Even the white dot, which was Sheaffer's signature identifier like a Nike swoosh and its lifetime guarantee, was tucked below the clip. We have restored this Sheaffer 875 Lifetime with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel have light wear. There is a hairline crack in the lip of the cap that goes just under the cap band. The lever looks a little bent down into the barrel. It works perfectly well. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth fine line. The imprint on this slender vintage pen is clear and viewing window is a little stain and cloudy but still clear enough to see through. Click the headline for great close-ups. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1828: Sheaffer: Triumph 1000
This is a fairly unique 1940s Sheaffer. It has a conical Triumph nib AND a lever filler. This was fairly uncommon, but even more unique is the fact that the section is threaded and screws into the barrel. We haven't seen that before...although that doesn't necessarily mean it is impossible to find. We aren't as familiar with this transitional period of Sheaffer. We restored this vintage pen with a fresh ink sac. The two-tone 14k gold Lifetime nib writes a nice extra-fine to fine line. The nib as a dent on each side just before the section. Also, the cap and barrel have one long, thin line that is slightly flattened from some kind of what looks like a little melting. 13.4cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 1827: Sheaffer: Craftsman 500
With metals in short supply at the end of WWII, Sheaffer made due with a narrow band at the lip of the cap on these Sheaffer Craftsman 500 pens. Although it has lots of surface wear, there aren't any cracks, dents or chips. There really aren't any long, deep scratches. The tiger-eye, "Golden Brown" finish shines through the surface wear at arm's length. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a firm, extra-fine line, with a little drag. 12.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1826 No Name Ringtop
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 1826: No Name: Ringtop
Spice up your pen collection with this zesty little yellow and black ripple ringtop fountain pen. There are no brand imprints or markings that we can discern. Nevertheless, we restored it with a fresh ink sac. The Warranted 14k gold nib writes a decent medium line with a little feedback. The pen has some discoloration and wear, but it is in pretty good shape for what we are guessing is a late 1930s plastic. 11cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1825: Wahl-Eversharp: Ringtop
Don't you ever wonder who owned these great vintage pens? Did this art deco Wahl Ringtop once belong to a jazz-baby flapper? Maybe a train conductor who kept it on his watch chain to make notes on the stops of his daily trips? Who ever owned it, took care not to dent it. It has some light scratches but no dents. The wrote with it a lot, as there is heavy brassing on the tail where the cap posted. We restored it with a new ink sac. It writes a great fine line with its #2 14k gold nib. Technically it has a little flex...but not really. 9.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1760 Sheaffer Saratoga Snorkel
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 1760: Sheaffer: Saratoga Snorkel
Rube Goldberg couldn't have been prouder of the engineers at Sheaffer when they created the snorkel filling system. It has to be one of the most complicated filling systems ever created...all to keep users' fingers clean and out of ink. It is brilliant, and this grey Sheaffer Saratoga is in really good condition. We restored it with a fresh ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The grey cap and barrel are really sharp, with only light traces of wear and no cracks. No brassing on the trim. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a very smooth fine-medium line. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1824 Sheaffer Marine Green Pencil
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 1824: Sheaffer: Marine Green Pencil
Marine Green Sheaffer pencils are very attractive in a slightly rarer color pattern. Ours is in good working order with a loaded lead that easily moves up and down with a twist of the tail. A couple of spare leads are in the reservoir, under a fossilized eraser. With the slightly sprung clip, it is pretty obvious this pencil was a user in its day. The clip has brassing on the ball and at the top. The pencil has scratches that are obvious up close but less so at arm's length as you write. If you click the headline and look closely at the photo, you will see "L.S. Huffman" engraved on the pencil. The first half of it is fairly worn down. 13.3cm.
Vintage Pens: 1789 Sheaffer Admiral
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $199.99
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.
