Vintage Pens: 4490 Sheaffer Valiant-ish
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4490: Sheaffer: Valiant-ish
We totally geeked out when we first saw this pen. We thought it was a first-year Sheaffer Valiant Snorkel. It is a 1st year Sheaffer Valiant Snorkel barrel half of the pen, but it is actually a lesser ranking cap on the pen! A marriage made in heaven, no doubt. We have restored this classic snorkel Frankenpen with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The 14k gold snorkel tube is what makes the barrel half a first-year pen. Regardless of the marriage, the cap fits perfectly, and the 14k gold two-tone nib writes a beautifully smooth medium line. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4469 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4469: Sheaffer: Imperial
Sheaffer Imperials got their start in the 1960s and were among the last pens of the vintage pen era. They actually kept making these pens for decades, and we actually think this is a 1980s model. Soooo, it might not be vintage, but it is kinda vintage. It comes with an original squeeze-bar converter but takes modern Sheaffer converters and cartridges. Its inlaid nib writes a nice medium line. The black section grip of the pen shows some heavy wear but the pen is in good working order. The chrome cap and barrel also show some scratches but they are in much better shape than the black plastic. Its cap is on tight but jiggles. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4261: Sheaffer: Lifetime Flat Top
NEW OLD STOCK! Still stickered, we have a beautiful black hard rubber Sheaffer Lifetime from very beginning of Lifetime pens. Our pen was made before the famed white dot logo was applied to the pen. Click the headline and you will see this sports an amazing original factory STUB nib with the equally rare early imprint that reads "Sheaffer's / Lifetime / Pen" on 3 lines. No patent info. No serial number! Under the nib is the rare original spear-point inkfeed. No brassing. No cracks. No Wear. We restored it with a new ink sac. Made in 1920 or '21. A once in a Lifetime opportunity to own a museum-worthy piece of writing history. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4468: Sheaffer: Balance 875
Carmine Sheaffers are usually a treat, and if you don't mind some serious cosmetic damage, this pen can be a treat, too. We fully restored it with a new ink sac. Its two-tone 14k gold lifetime nib writes a very nice extra-fine line. It is very firm, so you can feel the paper under you, but it also is smooth for such a fine line. The pen was a heavily used and well loved writing instrument in its day, and it picked up plenty of wear. There's a big wavy line of a scar on its tail end. Its cap band has a nasty bit of brassing that corroded. This Balance pen is marked 875 under the imprint. That actually was its original retail price in the 1930s! Slender. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4368 Sheaffer CBM
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4368: Sheaffer: CBM
From the golf course to the diner, a small pencil can be invaluable. Our Sheaffer CBM is especially nice, as it is New Old Stock with its original price tag from the 1920s! Its pinstriped, gold-filled finish is nearly perfect. Its lead advance and retract mechanism is working perfectly with a twist of the ringtop. Pull out the ring top to reveal the hardened original eraser and the 1.1mm spare leads under it! You'll read the following on the price tag, "CBM 20 yr. G. St. L. $3.50." 9cm.

Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4366: Sheaffer: GOM
Another New Old Stock find, our Sheaffer GOM gold-filled pencil looks like it just rolled off the assembly line in Ft. Madison, Iowa, in 1924ish. We love its harlequin infinity etching. No dings, scratches, dents or other wear. It has a green-gold finish and is in perfect working order. Advance and retract the lead with a turn of the ringtop. Pull off the ringtop to reveal a hardened eraser and still-full spare lead compartment. An amazing pencil for collectors and users. 1.1mm leads. 9cm.

Vintage Pens: 4390: Sheaffer: Titan
Perfect jade in a vintage Sheaffer is nearly impossible to find. BUT, our Sheaffer Titan is an exemplary jade that looks as if it was just made in Fort Madison, Iowa. Haling from the 1920s, it is in perfect condition and works beautifully. Twist the golden tail cap to advance or retract the 1.1mm lead. Remove the tail cap to reveal a century-old hardened eraser. No brassing, scratches, dents or any other blemishes. Nice wide body for easier gripping. 13.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 4364 Sheaffer GN
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4364: Sheaffer: GN
Click the headline to see close-ups of this incredible green-gold Sheaffer GN pencil. New Old Stock with the original price sticker on the flat tail of the pen! You'll see it when you click that headline. Since the 1920s this pencil was untouched. We got it from a recently discovered attic find which held the contents of a jewelry store that closed in 1926! No dents, dings, scratches. It is a museum piece that works beautifully. Pull of the flat tail cap and you'll see the hardened original eraser and under that the original spare leads! Works smoothly and well. We polished it up, but you can still see tarnish around and under the sticker. We didn't want to hurt the sticker so we left it be. 13cm.
