Vintage Pens: 2773 Sheaffer Admiral Statesman
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
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: 2770 Sheaffer Sentinel Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 2770: Sheaffer: Sentinel Deluxe
In 1949, Sheaffer introduced the world to TouchDowns, a revolutionary new system of pneumatic filler. They only ran their initial wide-bodied design for one year. This is one of those original 1949 Sheaffer Sentinel Deluxe pens. We restored the pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. We also wet sanded this pen's barrel and blind cap to a glossy shine. Unfortunately, you'll see a series of small pits in the barrel. We don't know what caused them, but they don't go all the way through the barrel. The restored filler works great. The original two-tone 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line. It is a firm nib, but it seems to have a little line variation to medium, depending on your hand angle and style. The polished stainless steel cap shows moderate wear with little dents in the top, and the off-center clip has 80% brassing that we've polished. There is some brassing in the cap band, too. This was somebody's well-loved work horse. It is ready for many more years of service. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2769 Sheaffer Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 2769: Sheaffer: Craftsman
We've never spent this much time before polishing a $50 pen, but we knew that under all the heavy wear lay a beautiful Prussian blue that could be restored to a glassy finish. It probably took 2 hours of wet sanding, but it was worth it. There are still a few faded deep scratches and reduced bite marks, but those won't be easily noticed for the casual observer. We also restored this pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. The TouchDown filler works great. One last quirk is that it is an American made cap and barrel with a Canadian Sheaffer 14k gold nib that writes a nice medium line. 13cm 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: 2669 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $25.00
Vintage Pens: 2669: Sheaffer: Imperial
How are this Sheaffer Imperial desk pen and a shortstop alike? Neither has a base to call its own. C'mon. Not every blurb can be brilliant. Still, this is a great looking desk pen that has very little wear. It's inlaid 14k gold nib writes a fine line that sounds but doesn't particularly feel scratchy. It can use a modern Sheaffer cartridge or converter but comes with neither. 17.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 2668 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $20.00
Vintage Pens: 2668: Sheaffer: Imperial
Oh, yeah. This vintage pen was reverse trim when reverse trim wasn't cool. It is hard to say no to such a bargain on a stickered Sheaffer Imperial such as this desk pen. Sure, it has no base, but not everybody is all about that base, 'bout that base. An early cartridge/converter filler, this pen can use modern Sheaffer cartridges and converters. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a converter. Only light wear can be seen. The palladium nib is marked as fine, but it writes more like a wet, firm medium to us. 17.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 2664 Sheaffer DeskPen
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $15.00
Vintage Pens: 2664: Sheaffer: DeskPen
Sheaffer made pens for the Sear Roebuck company that didn't have Sheaffer branding. This very pen is the first Sheaffer version of the Sears Roebuck 603 fountain pen that we have seen...and in a desk pen at that. It only uses Sheaffer cartridges, but we suspect you could squeeze a Sheaffer converter in it. If not a standard Sheaffer converter, one of their slim models. The pen seems to be in good condition with minimal wear. The steel nib writes a nice medium line. No desk base included. 16.3cm.
