Rube Goldberg would be proud of the engineers at Sheaffer for designing the snorkel filling system. It was a brilliant gimmick to be the mess-free fountain pen that never needed wiping off. It works well, too. Our Sheaffer Sovereign is fully restored with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It is free of cracks, and a dent-free some-what rare cap. The cap and barrel have a little wear from use that no one will notice in passing or from across the table. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a delightful firm, fine line. 14.1cm capped.
