Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F

Pre-Owned Pens: 3524: Sheaffer: Taranis
Aggressive modern styling seems to convert the earlier Sheaffer Imperial into the Sheaffer Taranis. White Lightning is the name of the design pattern, and the pen is in nearly mint condition. A brass foundation makes this pen far more durable than most luxury pens, and it fills easily with an include Sheaffer converter or Sheaffer cartridges.

Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3523: Sheaffer: Taranis
Sheaffer embraced 1980s styling with the aggressively modern Sheaffer Taranis. White Lightning is the name Sheaffer gave this color scheme. It is a pre-owned ballpoint pen that is in nearly mint condition so no obvious signs of wear. It comes with a working blue Sheaffer ballpoint refill. These refills are still available on the modern market. Twist the tail to extend and retract the refill. All-metal construction give the pen a little bit of heft for better writing momentum. 14cm.
Vintage Pens: 3729 Sheaffer OS Balance Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3729: Sheaffer: OS Balance Set
As far as we're concerned, the Sheaffer Balance might be the most perfect fountain pen ever made. Elegant, simple and an amazing writer. When the average person thinks of a vintage fountain pen, the stereotype image that most likely comes to mind is that of the Sheaffer Balance. This model is the rarer Over Sized Sheaffer Balance. It has been restored with a new ink sac. The color is amazing, without more than 5% discoloration. No cracks! You'll only find brassing on the ball of the clip. Light wear on the cap and barrel. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm, medium line. The pencil shows a little more wear with scratches on the nose cone and brassing on the ball clip. Twist the tail cap to advance a 1.1mm lead. The lead mechanism retracts, too, but we don't think this lead is engaged in it, so you need to push the lead back in after the twist retraction. We find that the pen is the widest Sheaffer Balance we've ever held, but it only measures a capped length of 13.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 3708 Sheaffer Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 3708: Sheaffer: Clipper
Ahoy! Catch the Clipper on the way to a writing paradise. Sheaffer Clipper pens were near the top tier of the Snorkel line of fountain pens. These had the White Dot warranty and a "palladium silver" Triumph nib. We restored this pastel blue beauty with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It has some wear from use and an engraving for M.J. Hopkins. We have no idea who that was. It writes with a firm, extra-fine line. No cracks or dents. Some wear from use. Complete with box and instructions under the pad. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3206 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
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.

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.

Vintage Pens: 3383 Sheaffer Triumph Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
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   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
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.
