Vintage Pens: 3185: Sheaffer: Statesman
"Palladium Silver" was a big deal for Sheaffer in the 1950s, as they used it often in their conical "Triumph" nibs and open nibs. The venerable vintage pen company used it on this Sheaffer Statesman snorkel pen. We restored the pen with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It is in great working order, and it is in great cosmetic condition, too. Only light wear and a shade of brassing at the top edge of the cap band. Strong imprint, including "2017" as a part of the top of the company imprint. Not sure what it means but it looks just like the barrel imprint lettering. The Triumph nib is marked F4 and writes a smooth fine line. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3184: Sheaffer: Admiral
Injecting some color into the Sheaffer Snorkel line of pens is this pastel green Sheaffer Admiral. It is a later model that has been fully restored with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. Ours is in fantastic condition with minimal wear, strong imprint and no brassing. The complex filling system is a snap, once you get used to it. Turn the tail cap counter clockwise while pushing in until you hear and feel a click. This extends the snorkel and locks it in place. Pull back on the tail cap until it stops. Stick the snorkel, and only the snorkel, in ink. Then push the tail cap down and wait a few seconds. Once the pen is full, turn the tail knob clockwise until the snorkel is hidden again. You're ready to write! The 14k gold open nib is marked M2 and writes smooth, wet medium line to die for. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3183: Sheaffer: Admiral
Lookin' almost minty fresh, our Sheaffer Admiral snorkel fountain pen will turn heads. It has some light wear, but you gotta get really close to see it. Plus, snorkel filling systems are so exotic that everyone will want to watch you fill it. We restored this one with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The pen is in great working order, and it was originally designed to be the only mess-free fountain pen. You see, the snorkel on this vintage pen requires no wiping after filling. It sports an 14k gold open nib that writes a glassy-smooth, wet fine line! A fantastic daily user! 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3182: Sheaffer: Statesman
Go gray. It is not too early to appreciate this classic Sheaffer Statesman snorkel fountain pen. We love the intricate Rube Goldberg snorkel-filling system...the mess-free way to fill a vintage pen. We replaced the ink sac, O-ring and point seal. No cracks mar its surface, but it does have light to moderate surface wear, which is hidden easily by the handsome grey color of the pen. It comes with a screw-out, later-model palladium silver nib that writes a smooth, wet extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0442: Sheaffer: Statesman
Burgundy gleams in this classic Sheaffer Statesman snorkel fountain pen. We replaced the ink sac, O-ring and point seal in this classic vintage pen. It was designed to out-do the ballpoint for the mess-free writing experience. A little tube (snorkel) comes out from under the nib to refill the pen. Once full, nothing needs to be wiped down! Ours is restored and in good working order. The conical "Triumph" nib is made of what Sheaffer advertised as "palladium silver." It writes a nice fine line! 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3181: Sheaffer: Admiral
Ahoy! Sheaffer Admiral fountain pens are an excellent first voyage into Sheaffer snorkel pens. Snorkels were Sheaffer's premier filling system of the 1950s. Fighting for relevancy as ballpoints came to dominate the marketplace, Sheaffer took on the #1 complaint about fountain pens head-on. People complained about getting their fingers inky after wiping down a nib after refilling. Sheaffer created the ultimate Rube Goldberg device to prevent customers from having to touch a single drop of ink...the snorkel filler. We replaced this pen's ink sac, O-ring and point seal. The pen, itself, is in nearly mint condition without any cracks or significant traces of wear. Its open, monotone 14k gold nib writes a smooth, fine-medium line.

Vintage Pens: 3176: Sheaffer: Sheaffer Lifetime
One of the greatest pens to emerge in the 1920s was the Sheaffer Lifetime. This oversized flattop pen was guaranteed for the original life of its owner, and these giants write amazingly well. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, it does have a lot of shallow bite marks on both the cap and barrel, as well as some moderate wear and brassing. It sports an original 14k gold Lifetime nib and a replacement Balance inkfeed. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib, which writes a firm, smooth and wet medium line. The famous white dot is on the flat top of the cap. A great daily writer. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3175: Sheaffer: Balance
Completing our cycle of Sheaffer colors is the golden brown Balance. Just as long as a 500 model, this one is a little more slender. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is crack free and in great overall condition. Only light wear and a little brassing...and a tiny "W.W.T." engraved on the back of the cap band. Its monotone 14k gold nib is a semi-flex that goes from a medium to about a millimeter with a little feedback. You can train it to be more flexy. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.8cm capped.
