Vintage Pens: 0550: Sheaffer: Craftsman 350
Make math and puzzles even more fun when you write with a classic 1940s Sheaffer pencil. We believe this was a match for the Sheaffer Craftsman fountain pen. Its lovely carmine design is rarer for these vintage pens and pencils. Ours still works with a lead that extends and retracts with a twist of the tail. Spare leads are still loaded in the barrel of the pencil! There is no eraser. The pencil also has no brassing and a strong imprint. The only downside is some moderate wear and scratching that you can better see when you click the headline for a close-up. 12.2cm.

Vintage Pens: 1249: Sheaffer: Saratoga Set
Tired of holding your breath until you find just the right snorkel? Your lucky day has arrived. Our Sheaffer Saratoga set is a restored delight with a fresh ink sac and a new O-ring and point seal. Only light wear can be found on the pastel green vintage pen set. No brassing blemishes either the pen or the pencil, which is in perfect working order with spare leads in the tail and a hardened original blue eraser. No cracks, strong imprints. The pen's two-tone 14k gold nib is marked M3, and it writes a very smooth, wet medium line. Pen measures 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2268 Sheaffer Sentinel
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $89.99
Vintage Pens: 2268: Sheaffer: Sentinel
We have no idea who Solly Schraeder was, but Solly had a great name. Solly also had a great vintage pen in this Sheaffer Sentinel. We fully restored this great piece of fountain pen engineering with a new O-ring and point seal. Somebody else had seemingly put in a new ink sac before we found it. The best part of this pen is that it has a first-year solid 14k gold snorkel! Solly put this pen to good use, but it only has light to moderate surface wear. No cracks, deep scarring scratches or dents. The two-tone Triumph 14k gold nib writes a firm fine line. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2267 Sheaffer Saratoga
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 2267: Sheaffer: Saratoga
Our favorite Rube Goldberg filling system is back with this Sheaffer Saratoga snorkel filler! In an effort to keep up with the ever-improving mess-free ballpoint technology of the 1950s, Sheaffer created these ingenious vintage pens. Push and twist the blind tail cap counter clockwise to reveal a little snorkel tube from under the nib. Pull back on the tail cap, stick the snorkel in ink, push down on the tail cap, wait a second and then turn the tail cap clockwise until the snorkel is fully retracted! The nib never gets inky, and there is no mess to clean. We fully restored this one with a new ink sac, point seal and O-ring. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a really nice firm extra-fine line. It isn't quite a Japanese extra fine, but it is as close as a 1950s Sheaffer will likely get. 14.2cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2256 Sheaffer Prelude
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2256: Sheaffer: Prelude
Broad nibs are seemingly very rare for us to find on modern Sheaffer Prelude fountain pens. Luckily, this is one of them! This two-tone steel nib writes a very nice, smooth broad line. Click the headline to see the nib close up. The rest of the pen is fairly standard. There are light traces of wear from use. There are several tiny chips in the finish of the pen's tail. The pre-owned pen comes complete with its Sheaffer converter. It also uses Sheaffer cartridges. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2263 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $79.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2263: Sheaffer: Balance
Who knows how many kelp-bed divers died trying to make this gorgeous Sheaffer Balance. Probably none, but as hobbies and professions go, abalone shell divers run a far higher risk of death than others. In some ways, that makes this vintage pen even more exotic and exquisite. It is one of the few pens that uses real iridescent flakes from abalone shells to decorate the cap and barrel. We restore the pen with a new ink sac. The size 3 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra fine line. No cracks, strong imprint and, aside from some substantial brassing on the cap band, only light wear on the cap and barrel. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2262 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2262: Sheaffer: Lifetime
In our humble opinion, you can't beat the incredible quality of the Sheaffer Lifetime nibs of the 1920s. The solid 14k gold nib on this Sheaffer Lifetime Jr. writes a very smooth, wet extra fine line! It is incredible. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The green celluloid has discolored a bit, and the ebonite section is scratched and has a chocolate hazing. There are no cracks in the pen, but there is moderate wear and light scratching in the cap and barrel. The clip and cap band have some brassing. The white dot on the flattop cap meant the pen has a warranty for the lifetime of the original owner's life. 11.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2261 Sheaffer Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 2261: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Striking red-and-black stripes of the rarer "carmine" coloring on this Canadian-made Sheaffer Craftsman Lifetime looks good. We restored it with a new ink sac. The cap has a small hairline crack in the lip. Both the cap and barrel have moderate wear and scratches. Maybe 1% brassing on cap ring. The firm two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra fine line with a little feedback. The section is in solidly, but it isn't 100% "in," as you can see in the photos. Click the headline for close-ups. 12cm capped.
