Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3962: Sheaffer: Legacy
What attracts you more to this pen: an inlaid 14k gold factory oblique nib or the fact it is an earlier model of the Sheaffer Legacy series with a working modern TouchDown filling system? It might be a tough choice, but it is an amazing pen in nearly mint condition. Everything works well, and the nib writes so nicely we really hate to sell this pen. Barely any wear is noticeable on this modern luxury pen that comes with its original boxes. True, the boxes are heavily worn and discolored, but they did their job protecting this phenomenal fountain pen. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3926 Sheaffer Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $89.99
Vintage Pens: 3926: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Carmine red is a lovely and rarer color on these Sheaffer Craftsman pens from 1945. Better yet, our set is in nearly mint condition. We restored it with a fresh ink sac, but the cap and barrel show barely any wear. No cracks, no brassing. You'll find a crisp imprint and 500 listed under the regular imprint. This meant that the pen cost $5.00 when it was issued in 1945. A bonus for this pen is the green, clear inkview window that normally discolors to an amber with age. Its 14k gold nib writes a very nice, juicy medium line. Its pencil is in likely wise nearly mint working condition. It comes loaded with a .9mm lead and a few spares. The leads advance and retracts with a twist of the tail cap. The set comes in a red-satin lined box, where the pad lifts up but nothing is there.

Vintage Pens: 3919: Sheaffer: Saratoga
In the 1950s, the writing was on the wall. Pen users were in love with the new, mess-free disposable ballpoint pen. Sheaffer addressed the problem head-on with a new mess-free fountain pen, the Sheaffer Snorkel. Our Sheaffer Saratoga is one such overengineered piece of writing brilliance. Its ink sac, O-ring and point seal have been replaced, and the pen is in great working order. This vintage pen is in excellent condition with no cracks or scratches. Minimal wear and a really crisp imprint. You will write an extra-fine to fine line with its firm, 2-tone 14k gold nib. We think it is smooth in its sweet spot, but there is only a minimal amount of feedback outside the sweet spot. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $149.99
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.

Vintage Pens: 3918: Sheaffer: Admiral
Surprisingly smooth is how we describe the extra-fine 14k gold nib on this Sheaffer Admiral. Fully restored with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal, this vintage pen is a great daily driver. The barrel is in excellent shape with a crisp imprint. The cap saw a lot more light surface wear. No cracks or deep scratches. No brassing, either. Just a good, all-around foray into snorkel pen bliss. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3917 Sheaffer Val-Toga

Price: $65.00
Vintage Pens: 3917: Sheaffer: Val-Toga
If you have a weakness for orphans and really smooth extra-fine nibs, you will love our Sheaffer Val-toga. One day a Sheaffer Saratoga lost its cap and spent ages looking for it only to find a lost Sheaffer Valiant cap on a similar quest. The fit so well together, they decided to start their own family. We found this pen this way, and it looks good and works great. It has been restored with a new ink sac and O-ring. Its ink-view window is surprisingly green and fresh. Oh, and the nib! Its two-tone, 14k gold glory writes a remarkable, smooth extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up. The cap and barrel have some wear from their adventures, but they are in good, overall condition. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3916: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Check out the clean green of the ink view window. Our Sheaffer Craftsman fountain pen is looking almost as good as new. Fully restored with a new ink sac, the pen barely shows any trace of wear. Crisp imprint, no cracks or scratches or brassing. Click the headline to spot some slivery plating missing from the two-tone 14k gold "Feather Touch" nib, but that's about the only real flaw on this fine vintage pen. We find its writes an extra-fine line that borders on fine with firmness and a hint of feedback. 12.8cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Snorkel

Vintage Pens: 3911: Sheaffer: Saratoga
Rube Goldberg would be proud to own a Sheaffer Saratoga fountain pen. Why? It features the world's most overcomplicated filling system: the snorkel. We restored it with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. Its deep burgundy cap and barrel look like they are dipping close to the boundary of purple. The blind cap looks a little lighter. Click the headline for a closer look at the two-tone 14k gold nib in the open design. We think these actually write better than the Triumph (conical) models. Marked "F3," we feel it writes a very firm, very smooth extra-fine line. No cracks and only light wear from use. 14.2cm capped.
