Vintage Pens: 2773: Sheaffer: Admiral Statesman
She was an Admiral and he was a Statesman, together they made the power couple of the 1950s in pastel blue. Our Sheaffer Snorkel is a married pair, but it is an impressive one. The Sheaffer Statesman half is the barrel side, which was a FIRST YEAR vintage pen from 1952. Click the headline for a close-up of the "palladium silver" Triumph nib and 14K gold snorkel! The cap came from a Sheaffer Admiral. The pastel blues match perfectly. We wet sanded both to a glossy shine, but you can still see a few little imperfections. Its nib writes a nice extra-fine to fine line with a touch of feedback. We restored the pen with a new ink sac, point seal and O-ring. The pocket it clip is a little loose, so be careful with it. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2768: Sheaffer: Statesman
In our humble opinion, there was no cooler vintage pen filling mechanism than the Rube Goldberg-esque Sheaffer Snorkel. Except for a nasty scratch on the section, this Sheaffer Statesman fountain pen looks as if it came directly from the factory in Ft. Madison, Iowa. We restored this pen with a fresh ink sac, point seal and O-ring. It works well. The "palladium silver" Triumph nib writes a firm fine line. Click the headline for a close-up. To fill it, unscrew the blind cap in the tail counterclockwise, while pushing in until it clicks. This locks the snorkel in place. Pull back on the blind cap. Dip the snorkel in ink. Push down the blind cap and wait a couple seconds. Turn the blind cap clockwise to retract the snorkel, and you're ready to write! 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2753: Sheaffer: Valiant Set
Imperfection means you can save a bundle on our burgundy Sheaffer Valiant TouchDown-filler pen and pencil set. Fully restored, this vintage pen is in great working order with a new ink sac and O-ring. The only real problem is in the cap. It has a 1/2-inch hairline crack extending up from the cap band. Click the headline for a close-up. The rest is fine, aside from general wear from past use. The two-tone Triumph 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth medium line. The matching pencil has no lead, but it appears to be in good working order, as its little lead pusher-thingy extends and retracts smoothly. Pen measures 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2372: Sheaffer: Valiant Saratoga
Clever snorkel collectors will rightfully call us out on the model name of this Sheaffer "Valiant Saratoga." It's a married pen. It has a Sheaffer Valiant cap in a slightly darker burgundy and a lighter burgundy Sheaffer Saratoga body and an open two-tone 14k gold nib. Either way, we restored it with a new point seal, O-ring and ink sac. The snorkel filler works great. The F3 nib writes a smooth fine line! The clip is skewed to the side but seemingly secure. Moderate wear is featured on the cap and barrel, but there are no cracks. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2255: Sheaffer: Statesman
One of the rarer colors of the Sheaffer snorkel line of pens is this Buckskin Tan (It looks pink to us, but what do we know?). It is especially exciting to see the matching white dot cap! We have fully restored this Sheaffer Statesman with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The conical "triumph" nib is made of "Palladium Silver," writing a delightfully smooth, wet medium line. No cracks, light surface wear. Hmmm. Great Rube Goldberg filling system, rarer color, great writing nib...what's not to love?! 14.2cm capped.

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.
