Vintage Pens: 2793: Sheaffer: Sovereign
Do you know how to tell a first-year snorkel from any other? It comes with a 14k gold snorkel tube! This is one such Sheaffer Sovereign fountain pen. We restored this delightfully overcomplicated Rube Goldberg-esque vintage pen with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. We also wet sanded its pastel blue barrel, which removed most traces of wear. The cap, however, has lots of light, shallow surface scratches. Click the headline to see. It is nice, in that it is a rarer cap style for the snorkel line. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a really nice, almost wet, extra-fine line! Those not familiar with extra-fine nibs might think it has feedback, but it really doesn't for those in the know. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2780: Sheaffer: Stately Admiral
Sage green is one of the rarer Sheaffer Snorkel colors. Frankenstein's monster was painted green, even though the Boris Karloff classic was filmed in black and white. So what do you do when you have a box full of green parts? Frankenpen! It's alive! It's alive! We restored a nearly perfect Sheaffer Admiral body with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. Then we slapped a lonely Sheaffer Statesman cap on it. All of it got the loving wet sanding treatment! Except for a barely visible hairline crack in the cap near the left top side of the clip, this vintage Frankenpen doesn't have any scars or bolts or...well, it does have an aversion to fire. Fire bad! The 14k gold open nib writes a buttery smooth fine line! What's not to love?! 14.1cm 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: 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.
