Sheaffer
Pens and Ephemera

William A. Sheaffer founded the Sheaffer Pen Company in 1912. His invention of the lever-filling fountain pen that year revolutionized how fountain pens were filled, and by the 1920s Sheaffer became one of the world's most dominant pen companies. Always innovating filling systems, Sheaffer also created a Vacuum-Fil pen, pneumatic TouchDown filler and pneumatic Snorkel filler that made for the first truly mess-free bottled-ink filling system. Started in Fort Madison, Iowa, the Sheaffer Pen Company today is owned by India's William Penn Company.

Pencil: 5072 Sheaffer GN
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 5072: Sheaffer: GN
One doesn't often find stickered, New Old Stock Sheaffer pencils from the 1920s, but this Sheaffer GN is just that. Its original price sticker is on the flat end of the tail cap. It simply states "GN $4.50." Pull out the tail cap to reveal the hardened eraser and spare 1.1mm leads. The main lead still advances and retracts. The mechanism is a little stiff but still works. Only light wear is on the Green-Gold Filled pencil. Amazing for a museum piece or daily writing. 13cm.

Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 5035: Sheaffer: Titan
The granddaddy of all pencils is here: Sheaffer Titan. This is what we like to call the lemon-lime jade version, as it features bright yellow swirls and flecks in the bright jade green celluloid. Our vintage pencil is in good working order. Twist the gold-filled crown on top to advance or retract the lead. As is the case with most of these, the crown is a bit dented around its edges. There's brassing on the ball and top of the pocket clip. Overall, the pencil looks great. No cracks or deep scratches. It fills with 1.1mm lead. There's a hardened eraser plugging up the space where we can hear spare leads rattling around. 13.2cm.

Solid 14k gold wraps a wide band around the tail cap of this Sheaffer Autograph pencil! These ostentatious vintage pencils are rare to find without an actual autograph etched into the gold. You'll find a little wear on the pencil but not much. Its .9mm lead extends and retracts with a twist of the tail cap. Under the tail cap is a working white eraser and a spare lead. 12.8cm.

Pencil: 5012: Sheaffer: Sentinel
Matching its pencil lines to its TouchDown-filling fountain pens, this vintage pencil was released as the Sheaffer Sentinel pencil. A two-tone chrome and gold cap contrasts beautifully against a dark green barrel. Minimal wear mars the surfaces of this classic pencil. A twist of the tail cap smoothly advances and retracts the .9mm lead. Cooler still is that this pencil is loaded with a red lead! Remove the cap to reveal a hardened original blue Sheaffer eraser. 12.9cm.

Pencil: 5005 Sheaffer Balance 250
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $29.99
Pencil: 5005: Sheaffer: Balance 250
Striated Carmine is one of the rarest colors of this era in Sheaffer production. Our Sheaffer Balance 250 is a great vintage pencil still in good working order. The 250 imprinted on the barrel meant that it cost $2.50 when it was brand new. Its celluloid is worn from use, but there are no cracks. Its gold plated trim only shows a hint of brassing on the ball of the pocket clip. You fill this pencil with .9mm leads, and it comes with a few spares. The eraser is long gone. Advance and retract the lead with a twist of the tail cap. 12.2cm.

Sheaffer Demonstrator pens from the 1920s and '30s turn up so rarely, this might be your one chance in a lifetime to get this pen.
