Vintage Pens: 3114: Sheaffer: Fountain Pen
We work with a lot of teenagers, and the big thing many of them are into is defining themselves as "a basic." We aren't 100% sure what it means, but it seems to involve leggings, fairy lights and Starbucks. When it comes to this plain black slender nonLifetime Sheaffer its like the perfect basic vintage pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this ink pen is a great daily driver. It has a nice imprint. The tail has a "c" imprinted, which means it was outsourced to the Celluloid company. Overall the pen looks great, but there is a little brassing. The cap has some pitting and marking. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth, dry extra-fine line. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3110: Sheaffer: PFM III
Sorry, Ladies. Due to the overt sexism of the 1960s, this pen isn't for you. It is a Sheaffer Pen for Men III. Modern styling and an inlaid 14k gold nib make the Sheaffer PFM an iconic vintage pen. First released in 1959, these pens only had a short run into the early 1960s. It refills using the famed snorkel system. Our blue PFM III is in good working order. We got it from a collector who restores these pens. The PFM III is highlighted by the fact it has gold-plated trim and a 14k gold nib. This nib writes a delightfully smooth extra-fine line. The pen has some wear from use. Light scratches with a few deeper ones and a little pit on the section. No cracks or brassing. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3107 Sheaffer Sentinel
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 3107: Sheaffer: Sentinel
TouchDown-filling vintage pens, such as this Sheaffer Sentinel, are among the hottest selling pens on our site these days. We just can't keep them in stock. It likely has something to do with the amazingly inventive filling system and affordability. This model comes complete with a working ink sac and O-ring. The ink-view window is remarkably clear. There's some light-to-moderate wear on the barrel and cap, but there are no cracks and it is in great working order. Sheaffer considered this a "TM" or "Thin Model." It has a two-tone 14k gold nib that writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3112 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3112: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Jade green looks pretty good on our oversized senior Sheaffer Lifetime fountain pen. The barrel great color, while the cap has a little more discoloration. Still, there are no cracks. Our vintage pen comes with a straight clip that does feature brassing on the ball. Its barrel imprint starts strong on the top line but gets weaker as you go down. There is a clear "D" imprint on the flat end of the tail. Click the headline for a great close-up of the original 14k gold nib. Writing with it is a firm, fine, wet treat. We recently acquired this from a collector who restored all of his pens. This has a good working ink sac in it. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3090 Sheaffer Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3090: Sheaffer: Clipper
You've always wanted a fully restored first-year Sheaffer snorkel fountain pen with a 14k gold tube snorkel, but you never wanted to pay the full price? Well, have we got a bargain for you. We restored this handsome tuxedo of a vintage luxury pen with a new point seal, O-ring and ink sac. Although there's a tiny bit missing from the plastic inkfeed inside the snorkel, it still fills well. The only trick is to remember to turn the blind cap a little after the downstroke to release the air trapped inside the pen. Why so cheap? On the under side of the barrel, the entire barrel is taken up with a cool inscription that reads: "Paul E. Fleming / Kiwanis President / 1952." There's only a little wear on the pen and the conical "Triumph" nib is made of "Palladium Silver" and writes a very smooth medium line. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 1075: Sheaffer: Crest
Sheaffer Crest fountain pens are easily identified by their gold-filled caps on normal Sheaffer Snorkel pens. This vintage pen sports a nice pastel green barrel. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. The snorkel itself is a rare 14k gold tube, which means this is a first-year pen from 1952. Just wait until you write with it. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a super-smooth, medium line. There's only a little wear an light scratching on the body. The cap is free of scratches and dents, except directly under the clip, which is a little off kilter. Filing it under "Nobody's Perfect," the skirted nib has a little seepage where the gold meets the plastic. We have tried sealing it with rubber cement to no avail. As it is a great writer, be sure just not to hold it that low, and you'll be fine. When full, keep it nib up when not in use, and that will also minimize seepage. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3086 Sheaffer FA 600
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $9.99
Vintage Pens: 3086: Sheaffer: FA 600
Straited grey lines shoot down the length of this companion pencil to the Sheaffer Craftsman fountain pen. This pencil is marked as a Sheaffer FA 600. The 600 refers to the writing instrument's original $6 price. Inflation hasn't hit it too badly. The cap ring was only made in 1945 to the best of our knowledge. Thus, this pencil was made just before or after WWII ended. The nickel trim was a result of the gold shortage caused by war rationing. Twist the tail cap to extend the .9mm lead. The lead only retracts with a little help from your thumb or table top as you twist the tail cap in the opposite direction. A petrified eraser remains, but there are no spare leads remaining. Those are easy enough to find. A daily user, this pencil shows some wear. 12.4cm.

Vintage Pens: 3084: Sheaffer: Statesman
Stickered! Straight from the mid-1950s comes our shiny black Sheaffer Statesman fountain pen. We think the pen might have been used once, but that was about it. We replaced the O-ring and point seal, but the sac was still fresh as can be. Minimal wear on the cap and barrel. Click the headline for a better close-up of the palladium silver Triumph nib and "Medium" sticker. We dipped the pen for a quick scribble, and it is a medium that leans toward the fine side of life. Comes with a little Sheaffer box. Pen measures 14.2cm capped.
