Most demonstrator pens are unique, but none is as exciting to own and watch as the Sheaffer Snorkel Demonstrator. You watch the Rube Goldberg machinations of the brilliantly overcomplicated snorkel filling system in action! Our vintage pen is fully restored, although most people keep these as museum pieces given their rarity and fragility. So far, we've only found one fractal in the pen. It is located in the blind cap. You can tell where this pen was located in its working life by the "Macy's Richmond" imprint on the barrel. Light shop wear is present on the cap and barrel, but this is honestly one of the clearest, cleanest Snorkel Demonstrators we've ever seen. Its 14k gold nib is a smooth medium. 14.2cm capped.
