Vintage Pens: 0455 Sheaffer Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 0455: Sheaffer: Clipper
"Buckskin" is a rare color for any Sheaffer Snorkel fountain pen. This is a Sheaffer Clipper. It has the two-tone metal, white-dot cap, and a "Triumph" (conical) palladium silver nib. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. There are no cracks, but there are light traces of wear. There is no company imprint, but the name "Delores Christianson" is imprinted with gold lettering in that spot. The clip is on straight, strong and tight. No cracks. The nib writes a slightly stiff extra-fine line. It is marked F4. It is a beautiful pen that is ready for more use. 14.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1350 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 1350: Sheaffer: Crest
If every woman must have that classic little-black dress in her closet, then every writer must have at least one classic black pen at their desk. This vintage pen is a handsome Sheaffer Snorkel, known as the "Crest." It has a gold-filled cap and a black barrel. There is only a little dent on the cap that requires holding it at just the perfect angle to see it. The clip is a bit askew. The barrel has only minimal wear and a strong imprint. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. NO SEEPAGE, cracks or leaks after a week of testing. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a fine to medium line, depending on your handwriting angle, with a hint of feedback. Click the headline for better photos. 14.1cm 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.


Vintage Pens: 0470 Sheaffer Sentinel
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 0470: Sheaffer: Sentinel
The Sheaffer Sentinel was considered one of the higher-end Sheaffer Snorkel models. This fully restored Sentinel has a fresh ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. Best of all, the snorkel tube is one of the rarer 14k gold snorkel tubes! The barrel has no imprint and some wear, which leads us to believe it was a replacement barrel. There are no cracks, and the vintage pen works beautifully. The shiny chrome/steel and gold-trimmed cap has light wear but no dents. The original two-tone 14k gold nib writes a nice medium line. We filled the pen for a week and found no leaks or other issues. 13.9cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1250 Sheaffer Valiant Snorkel
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1250: Sheaffer: Valiant Snorkel
Your gaze has fallen on the nearly flawless beauty of a pastel blue Sheaffer Valiant snorkel fountain pen. This vintage pen has no cracks and minimal wear. We restored it with a new ink sac, snorkel gasket and O-ring. We tested it for a week with ink in it, and there are no leaks or seepage spots. It fills easily (and mess free) by twisting the tail to extend a little snorkel tube that will click when locked into position. Pull back the tail to prime the pneumatic filler. Stick the snorkel in ink, and depress the tail. Give it a few seconds, and it is full. Twist the snorkel back into the pen, and you are ready to write. Its only flaw is that it has the initials "L.S.M" engraved on the cap band. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a smooth, fine line. 14.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0444 Sheaffer Admiral
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0444: Sheaffer: Admiral
One of the most popular pens of the 1950s, the Sheaffer Snorkel famously didn't let your fingers get inky. In the greatest of fountain pen Rube Goldberg devices, a little tube comes out of the inkfeed by twisting the tail of the pen. Pull back on the tail when the proboscis is locked to prime the touchdown pneumatic filler, dip the snorkel in ink and push down on the tail. The pen fills enough ink to write for 8 to 10 pages. This is a Sheaffer Admiral. It had no white dot on the cap and a 14k gold "open" nib. We have fully restored this pen with a new ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. We've filled it with ink and let it set for a week. There are no leaks. The nib writes a buttery smooth medium line. Aside from light wear on the barrel, the only serious flaw is a 1" crack just to the right of the pocket clip. Click the headline for a close up. The clip is on tightly. As long as you stress the clip/cap, this "pastel green" pen works perfectly and will be a great user. 14.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1476 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 1476: Parker: Duofold
Several features really stand out on this Parker Duofold ringtop. First, the glittering candy-red and black marbling of the design will draw you in. On closer inspection you can see wear, but you also can see what look like undulating layers inside of the celluloid. Next, the cap band design is on the rarer side with a skinny band, thick band and skinny band...none of which show any brassing. Lastly, the inkfeed is a Christmas tree original design! We have restored this pen with a fresh ink sac. No cracks. Readable imprint. The original 14k gold nib writes a nice medium line. 11.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1182 Parker Duofold Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1182: Parker: Duofold Senior
If you want a vintage pen that is really the bee's knees, check out the #1 writing instrument of the 1920s: the Parker Duofold. This senior-size model was made later in the decade of permanite and not hard rubber. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac. There are NO CRACKS in the cap and only light wear and brassing. If you don't like the name "Norman Meyer" engraved on it, we say, "Banana oil!" It writes a smooth fine line with an original Duofold nib and a later Vacumatic replacement inkfeed. The lid only takes a quarter turn or so to tighten, so be careful not to overtighten the cap. A good clean imprint. 13.7cm capped.
