Sheaffer continued innovating a brilliant filling system in the late 1940s called the TouchDown filler. This Sheaffer Valiant from around 1950 features that filler. It was the precursor to the Snorkel and a fairly easy system. We restored this one with a new ink sac and O-ring. Our vintage pen was clearly somebody's favorite daily user. It has the wear to prove it, but there are no cracks, deep scratches or brassing. There is a little chip missing on the back of the cap, just above the cap band. You'll write an extra-fine line with its two-tone 14k gold nib. We might even say it is an extra-extra-fine nib. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.5cm capped.
