Vintage Pens: 3438 Sheaffer #3
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3438: Sheaffer: #3
Sheaffer was rocking the pen world in the 1920s with writing instruments such as this Sheaffer #3. Will you like the gold-filled sleeve with an art deco design or the flexi #3 14k gold nib better? Either way the pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No initials engraved, but it has a couple nasty little dents in the cap, which you can see better when you click the headline for a close-up photo. The rest of the pen is nearly minty fresh. Only a couple teeny tiny bits of brassing on the clip and lever. Its nib writes a genuinely flexi...nearly wet noodle...line from fine to 1.5mm. We especially get a kick out of the "Sheaffer-Clip" clip and "Self-Filling" nib. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3434: Sheaffer: Slender #2
Hailing from the early 1920s is this surprisingly minty fresh looking Sheaffer #2 Self-Filling pen. Click the headline for amazing close-ups. Really strong chasing, no cracks, no chocolate hazing! Only the lever seems to show any age, and there's a scratch on the flat tail end. This pen has been restored with a new ink sac. OH! AND, this vintage pen's 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with FLEX! There is feedback, but this is also what most would consider a wet noodle flex out to 1mm. Plus, we love the hyphenated clip on the cap! 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3432 Sheaffer Ringtop
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 3432: Sheaffer: Ringtop
Today's flappers need a cutting edge writing instrument, and we recommend this Sheaffer Ringtop from the Jazz Age. This vintage pen has a floral print on what appears to be a gold-plated overlay. What appear to be the very elegant script initials "V G S" are on the name plate. A little brassing where the cap snugs against the barrel, and a small dent on the edge of the flat tail piece are the worst of the damage to this otherwise excellent pen. The lever dangles a little when the pen is upside down. It has been restored with a new ink sac. The very early original inkfeed and #2 Sheaffer nib write a wet, medium line smoothly. Its nib also has a little FLEX! 9.7cm capped...including the ringtop.
Vintage Pens: 3431 Sheaffer Half Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3431: Sheaffer: Half Balance
Behold a hyper-rare site! We are excited to present the cleanest black-and-pearl design we've ever seen on a vintage Sheaffer. There are only a couple spots of light discoloration, whereas most of these pens are brown and black these days. On top of that distinction, this is an authentic Sheaffer Half Balance, where the pen has a Balance cap and a flat-top body. These were actually cataloged by Sheaffer when they came out. Ours is beautiful and crack-free. It has been restored with a working ink sac. Its nib is 14k gold Lifetime model with its original inkfeed. You will write a smooth medium line when writing from a low angle of attack. If you keep the pen more verticle, it gets more feedback and a finer line. Nice big pen with good girth for improved, cramp-free writing. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3418: Sheaffer: Statesman
The writing was on the wall for fountain pens by 1952. Ballpoint pens were going to take over the market within a decade. To combat that menace, Sheaffer invented the most Rube Goldberg filling system in the history of pens: the snorkel. As the #1 complaint about fountain pens was wiping off the nib, Sheaffer devised a system that used a little straw...or snorkel...to suck ink into the pen without the need for being wiped clean. The ingenious system can be found on our Sheaffer Statesman. We restored the snorkel system with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The pen has some wear from use, the worst of which is brassing on the cap band. Its palladium "Triumph" nib was designed to look exactly as it does here. It writes a firm extra-fine to fine line. If you aren't used to these nibs, you might think it has feedback, but it is actually pretty smooth for an XF Triumph. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3206 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3206: Sheaffer: Imperial
Sheaffer Imperial pens were really the last mass-produced fountain pen by Sheaffer intended for the masses. This handsome 12k gold-filled model features the best of this model. There's a dent on the tail and a little brassing, but the rest of the pen is in great condition, with only light wear on the rest of the cap and barrel. You'll find it is an early Sheaffer converter pen. It comes with a working converter, and it also takes modern Sheaffer ink cartridges. Write a smooth medium line with its 14k gold inlaid nib. Click the headline for a great close-up. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3401: Sheaffer: Craftsman
In 1945, war rationing had knocked gold and most metal supplies down to a scarcity for non-war-related items. The Sheaffer Craftsman made lemonade out of lemons by limiting the cap band trim to a scant line around the lip. Nevertheless, our vintage pen is still a handsome devil in a straited green design that remains as vibrant as early summer. You'll find a strong impint on the barrel, too. Light wear from use is barely noticeable. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Plus, you can see through the section to check the ink level. Its two-tone, Feather-Touch nib of 14k gold writes a wet fine line. 12.6cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $199.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3207: Sheaffer: Imperial
Sheaffer Imperial pens of the 1960s seem to be the last mass-production vintage pen of the "fountain pen era." Our vintage pen is 12k gold filled. Nearly perfect except for some light wear and a little brassing and a dimple on the tail blind cap. Ours is the rarer, more sought-after TouchDown filler, which has been fully restored with a new sac and O-ring. It is in great working order, ANNNNND, the inlaid 14k gold nib is extra fine WITH some FLEX. Flex is hyper rare in these classic inlaid nibs. 13.6cm capped.
