Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Admiral

Vintage Pens: 5993 Sheaffer Admiral
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $175.00
New Old Stock Sheaffer Snorkel fountain pens are a rare treat. This Sheaffer Admiral is actually our favorite kind of snorkel. We prefer the open 14k gold nibs as smoother, more responsive nibs than the firmer conical Triumph nibs. We replaced the pen's O-ring, but the point seal and sac performed as good as new with water. There might be a little shop wear on this pen, but there are no significant blemishes. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.2cm capped.
