Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 3182: Sheaffer: Statesman
Go gray. It is not too early to appreciate this classic Sheaffer Statesman snorkel fountain pen. We love the intricate Rube Goldberg snorkel-filling system...the mess-free way to fill a vintage pen. We replaced the ink sac, O-ring and point seal. No cracks mar its surface, but it does have light to moderate surface wear, which is hidden easily by the handsome grey color of the pen. It comes with a screw-out, later-model palladium silver nib that writes a smooth, wet extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0442: Sheaffer: Statesman
Burgundy gleams in this classic Sheaffer Statesman snorkel fountain pen. We replaced the ink sac, O-ring and point seal in this classic vintage pen. It was designed to out-do the ballpoint for the mess-free writing experience. A little tube (snorkel) comes out from under the nib to refill the pen. Once full, nothing needs to be wiped down! Ours is restored and in good working order. The conical "Triumph" nib is made of what Sheaffer advertised as "palladium silver." It writes a nice fine line! 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3181 Sheaffer Admiral
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3181: Sheaffer: Admiral
Ahoy! Sheaffer Admiral fountain pens are an excellent first voyage into Sheaffer snorkel pens. Snorkels were Sheaffer's premier filling system of the 1950s. Fighting for relevancy as ballpoints came to dominate the marketplace, Sheaffer took on the #1 complaint about fountain pens head-on. People complained about getting their fingers inky after wiping down a nib after refilling. Sheaffer created the ultimate Rube Goldberg device to prevent customers from having to touch a single drop of ink...the snorkel filler. We replaced this pen's ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The pen, itself, is in nearly mint condition without any cracks or significant traces of wear. Its open, monotone 14k gold nib writes a smooth, fine-medium line.

Vintage Pens: 3176: Sheaffer: Sheaffer Lifetime
One of the greatest pens to emerge in the 1920s was the Sheaffer Lifetime. This oversized flattop pen was guaranteed for the original life of its owner, and these giants write amazingly well. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, it does have a lot of shallow bite marks on both the cap and barrel, as well as some moderate wear and brassing. It sports an original 14k gold Lifetime nib and a replacement Balance inkfeed. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib, which writes a firm, smooth and wet medium line. The famous white dot is on the flat top of the cap. A great daily writer. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3175 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 3175: Sheaffer: Balance
Completing our cycle of Sheaffer colors is the golden brown Balance. Just as long as a 500 model, this one is a little more slender. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is crack free and in great overall condition. Only light wear and a little brassing...and a tiny "W.W.T." engraved on the back of the cap band. Its monotone 14k gold nib is a semi-flex that goes from a medium to about a millimeter with a little feedback. You can train it to be more flexy. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3174 Sheaffer Balance 500
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $75.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3174: Sheaffer: Balance 500
Nickel trim and grey straited celluloid make for a handsome color combination on our Sheaffer Balance 500. Large, standard size fountain pen...not oversized. The 500 imprint actually represents the original selling price for the pen. The matching pencil is a 250. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. A daily user, our pen features moderate wear on the cap and barrel, but the cap band and clip have heavy wear. No cracks and a good clean imprint. The size 5 two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra fine line very smoothly. Also working well is the matching pencil! Deep scratches mar the nickel-plated nose cone, but the rest of the vintage pencil only has light to moderate wear. No cracks. Under the tail cap is a petrified eraser and spare leads. Pen measures 13.9cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3173: Sheaffer: Balance 1000
Rich, vibrant green was a really popular color in the 1940s, and it is stunning on our oversized Sheaffer Balance 1000 fountain pen. We restored it with a new ink sac. The vintage pen is in remarkably good condition except for heavy brassing on the cap band and clip...along with a nasty crack from the lip of the cap to the other side of the cap band. The rest of the pen has only light wear. Its two-tone Lifetime nib writes a smooth, fine line a little dryly. Its matching pencil is a Sheaffer 400 in excellent working condition with minimal wear. It has what feels like a fresh blue eraser and a few spare leads under the tail cap. The 1000 and 400 signifiers are really the price of the pen in pennies...$10.00 and $4.00. Pen measures 14cm capped.

Revisiting its greatest success, Sheaffer created the Balance II series of pens. This is the Sheaffer Balance II ballpoint pen in black. The black is more of a slate with a little grey in it.
