Vintage Pens: 3398: Sheaffer: Sentinel
With the evil ballpoint pen taking an ever-larger share of the writing instrument market in the 1950s, Sheaffer developed the snorkel filling system to provide an absolutely mess-free filling experience. We restored this Sheaffer Sentinel fountain pen with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It comes with a vintage pen box. You'll write with a two-tone 14k gold Triumph nib that is marked F5. We find it writes a nice, wet fine line with a tiny bit of feedback. Light wear from use. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3399: Sheaffer: Sentinel
If Esterbrooks represent the baseline for pens in the 1950s, Sheaffer Sentinel snorkels represent the pinnacle. The most over-engineered filling system ever created, we adore the Sheaffer snorkel. We restored this one with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. Gently used, it comes with a working, matching pencil that still has its "chalk mark" price on the barrel. Its two-toned 14k gold Triumph nib is marked F5, but we find the nib writes more of a firm extra-fine line with a little feedback. Set comes complete with its box and papers!

Vintage Pens: 3533: Sheaffer: Sovereign
Rube Goldberg would be proud of the engineers at Sheaffer for designing the snorkel filling system. It was a brilliant gimmick to be the mess-free fountain pen that never needed wiping off. It works well, too. Our Sheaffer Sovereign is fully restored with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It is free of cracks, and a dent-free some-what rare cap. The cap and barrel have a little wear from use that no one will notice in passing or from across the table. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a delightful firm, fine line. 14.1cm 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, which means this is a first-year pen from 1952. Just wait until you write with it. 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. 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.
