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: 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: 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: 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.

Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 1771: Sheaffer: Prelude
As fate would have it, one of Sheaffer's longest running pen models is the Sheaffer Prelude. We have a golden fountain pen here for your writing joy. Only lightly used, the pen has minimal wear and its original nib mark on the section: "M." Fill the pen with an included Sheaffer converter. Also feel free to use Sheaffer cartridges. Write a nice medium line with its golden alloy nib! 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3383 Sheaffer Triumph Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3383: Sheaffer: Triumph Autograph
Sheaffer added a new special feature to its rarer models of the 1940s...a big solid gold band for etching a customers autograph on it. This is the Sheaffer Triumph Autograph in PRISTINE condition. No autograph or other engravings. Minimal wear. It was restored with a fresh ink sac, and the viewer window is still clear enough to see its light green factory freshness. For its era, it is a big pen, too. No skinny-pen-hand-cramping action here. You'll also get a larger, early version of the conical "Triumph" nib in two-tone 14k gold. It writes a firm, fine line. We can see where some people say it has feedback, but it also is well within normal for Sheaffer firm fines. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2284 Sheaffer Secretary
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 2284: Sheaffer: Secretary
Behold the oversized Sheaffer Secretary vintage pen. A real grail pen. Made of an eye-catching red radite in circa 1926, you'll even get the original 14k Secretary nib. Click the headline to see the special design. Effectively a Sheaffer Lifetime, it was 20% cheaper, had a size 7 nib instead of the size 8 and didn't include the lifetime warranty. However, it was every bit as satisfying. These days, the Sheaffer Secretary is a hard-to-find vintage pen...especially an oversized model in this pen's condition. It has only a little wear to the cap and barrel. The ink sac has been replaced. The imprint is fairly well faded. Its biggest flaws are two hairline cracks in the lip of the pen. In some lights, you can see two slightly discolored/darkened rings around the cap that are only a shade or two darker than the cap. Only a little brassing on the cap band. The nib writes a firm, true extra-fine line, with a little feedback. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
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.
