Vintage Pens: 3196: Sheaffer: Balance
Grey swirls and flakes with red veins was a very distinctly 1930s design. Our Sheaffer Balance is the standard size (neither oversized nor small/junior) exemplar of Depression-era art in industrial design. It'll turn heads. No cracks, a strong imprint and no real scratching. Its only flaw is some significant wear on the cap band. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. Its heart and soul is the size 5 "Feather Touch" two-tone 14k gold nib, which writes an exceptionally smooth extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. A rarer color pattern for Sheaffer. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3195: Sheaffer: Sovereign
Brighten up your life with Fiesta Red in your Sheaffer snorkel. YES! That Fiesta Red! One of the rarest colors for the Sheaffer snorkel line. Our Sheaffer Sovereign fountain pen has been fully restored and is great working order. The pen even has its original 1950s price tag! The cap and barrel are nearly flawless. The section has two obvious scratches, but that is pretty much it. Even the pen cap is rare with a wavy line design. Its two-tone 14k gold nib looks like an extra fine but writes a firm medium line. PLUS, you get a fiesta red Sheaffer's mechanical pencil. We aren't convinced it is a true Sovereign, but it does have its original pricing chalk mark! The cap also features a rare window pane design. In good working order with a .9mm lead and "fresh" unused but hardened blue Sheaffer eraser under the cap. New Old Stock. Pen measures 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3185: Sheaffer: Statesman
"Palladium Silver" was a big deal for Sheaffer in the 1950s, as they used it often in their conical "Triumph" nibs and open nibs. The venerable vintage pen company used it on this Sheaffer Statesman snorkel pen. We restored the pen with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It is in great working order, and it is in great cosmetic condition, too. Only light wear and a shade of brassing at the top edge of the cap band. Strong imprint, including "2017" as a part of the top of the company imprint. Not sure what it means but it looks just like the barrel imprint lettering. The Triumph nib is marked F4 and writes a smooth fine line. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3183: Sheaffer: Admiral
Lookin' almost minty fresh, our Sheaffer Admiral snorkel fountain pen will turn heads. It has some light wear, but you gotta get really close to see it. Plus, snorkel filling systems are so exotic that everyone will want to watch you fill it. We restored this one with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The pen is in great working order, and it was originally designed to be the only mess-free fountain pen. You see, the snorkel on this vintage pen requires no wiping after filling. It sports an 14k gold open nib that writes a glassy-smooth, wet fine line! A fantastic daily user! 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3182: Sheaffer: Statesman
Go gray. It is not too early to appreciate this classic Sheaffer Statesman snorkel fountain pen. We love the intricate Rube Goldberg snorkel-filling system...the mess-free way to fill a vintage pen. We replaced the ink sac, O-ring and point seal. No cracks mar its surface, but it does have light to moderate surface wear, which is hidden easily by the handsome grey color of the pen. It comes with a screw-out, later-model palladium silver nib that writes a smooth, wet extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0442: Sheaffer: Statesman
Burgundy gleams in this classic Sheaffer Statesman snorkel fountain pen. We replaced the ink sac, O-ring and point seal in this classic vintage pen. It was designed to out-do the ballpoint for the mess-free writing experience. A little tube (snorkel) comes out from under the nib to refill the pen. Once full, nothing needs to be wiped down! Ours is restored and in good working order. The conical "Triumph" nib is made of what Sheaffer advertised as "palladium silver." It writes a nice fine line! 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3181: Sheaffer: Admiral
Ahoy! Sheaffer Admiral fountain pens are an excellent first voyage into Sheaffer snorkel pens. Snorkels were Sheaffer's premier filling system of the 1950s. Fighting for relevancy as ballpoints came to dominate the marketplace, Sheaffer took on the #1 complaint about fountain pens head-on. People complained about getting their fingers inky after wiping down a nib after refilling. Sheaffer created the ultimate Rube Goldberg device to prevent customers from having to touch a single drop of ink...the snorkel filler. We replaced this pen's ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The pen, itself, is in nearly mint condition without any cracks or significant traces of wear. Its open, monotone 14k gold nib writes a smooth, fine-medium line. Click the headline for an amazing nib photo. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3178: Esterbrook: SJ-9555
Copper makes for the most attractive color of the Esterbrook SJ series of pens, in our humble opinion. There just aren't that many pens out there in that color. We have fully restored this Esterbrook SJ pen with a fresh ink sac. No cracks, tight clip, complete plastic jewels, clean but weak imprint. Light surface wear is the vintage pen's only problem. Its 9555 nib is considered an upgrade nib designed by the company for shorthand, leading us to believe this pen once belonged to a secretary, stenographer or journalist. The steel nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. If you aren't wild about it, our favorite part about these pens is that the nibs unscrew easily for dozens of different replacement points! 12cm capped.
