Vintage Pens: 2793 Sheaffer Sovereign
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 2793: Sheaffer: Sovereign
Do you know how to tell a first-year snorkel from any other? It comes with a 14k gold snorkel tube! This is one such Sheaffer Sovereign fountain pen. We restored this delightfully overcomplicated Rube Goldberg-esque vintage pen with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. We also wet sanded its pastel blue barrel, which removed most traces of wear. The cap, however, has lots of light, shallow surface scratches. Click the headline to see. It is nice, in that it is a rarer cap style for the snorkel line. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a really nice, almost wet, extra-fine line! Those not familiar with extra-fine nibs might think it has feedback, but it really doesn't for those in the know. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2788 Sheaffer Sentinel TM
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 2788: Sheaffer: Sentinel TM
In 1950 Sheaffer updated its TouchDown line of pens with the famed "TM" line or "Thin Model." This Sheaffer Sentinel TM is among the primo pens of its era. It had the upgraded stainless steel cap with plated gold trim and a "Lifetime" white dot, although the company was no longer allowed to have a lifetime warranty. We restored this pen with a new O-ring and ink sac. The cap shows a lot of really light, shallow surface wear. We wet sanded most of the wear out of the barrel, but you can still see the engraving for "M. J. Edwardson" below the Sheaffer imprint. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a firm medium line. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2780 Sheaffer Stately Admiral
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 2780: Sheaffer: Stately Admiral
Sage green is one of the rarer Sheaffer Snorkel colors. Frankenstein's monster was painted green, even though the Boris Karloff classic was filmed in black and white. So what do you do when you have a box full of green parts? Frankenpen! It's alive! It's alive! We restored a nearly perfect Sheaffer Admiral body with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. Then we slapped a lonely Sheaffer Statesman cap on it. All of it got the loving wet sanding treatment! Except for a barely visible hairline crack in the cap near the left top side of the clip, this vintage Frankenpen doesn't have any scars or bolts or...well, it does have an aversion to fire. Fire bad! The 14k gold open nib writes a buttery smooth fine line! What's not to love?! 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2669 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $25.00
Vintage Pens: 2669: Sheaffer: Imperial
How are this Sheaffer Imperial desk pen and a shortstop alike? Neither has a base to call its own. C'mon. Not every blurb can be brilliant. Still, this is a great looking desk pen that has very little wear. It's inlaid 14k gold nib writes a fine line that sounds but doesn't particularly feel scratchy. It can use a modern Sheaffer cartridge or converter but comes with neither. 17.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 2652 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $175.00
Vintage Pens: 2652: Sheaffer: Lifetime
No vintage pen collection is complete without an oversized Sheaffer Lifetime Flattop fountain pen. These pens were among the very best produced in the 1920s. About the size of a robusto cigar, they were considered tankers for ink reserves back in its own time. Ours is in great working order with a fresh ink sac. There are no cracks. It has some light wear from daily use, especially around the top of the cap. The clip and cap ring have some brassing. The original 14k gold Lifetime nib is complemented by a slightly later Sheaffer Balance inkfeed. It writes a firm, extra-fine line. (The firmness was to help it write through carbon copies back in the 1920s.) On the flat bottom is a small "c" imprint. This actually indicated that the pen barrel was made by a contractor hired by Sheaffer! 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2592 Sheaffer Targa Classic
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 2592: Sheaffer: Targa Classic
NEW OLD STOCK! The sticker is still on this Sheaffer Targa Classic 1001 in brushed stainless steel. When we tested the original aerometric-style converter, it worked as good as new, and there was no ink that flushed out. The only flaw on the pen is a scratch near the tail that doesn't make a full half inch. In the event the converter ever gives out, these vintage pens take modern Sheaffer converters and cartridges! The original stainless steel nib writes a firm, smooth medium line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2372 Sheaffer Valiant Saratoga
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 2372: Sheaffer: Valiant Saratoga
Clever snorkel collectors will rightfully call us out on the model name of this Sheaffer "Valiant Saratoga." It's a married pen. It has a Sheaffer Valiant cap in a slightly darker burgundy and a lighter burgundy Sheaffer Saratoga body and an open two-tone 14k gold nib. Either way, we restored it with a new point seal, O-ring and ink sac. The snorkel filler works great. The F3 nib writes a smooth fine line! The clip is skewed to the side but seemingly secure. Moderate wear is featured on the cap and barrel, but there are no cracks. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2367 Sheaffer Frankenpen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 2367: Sheaffer: Frankenpen
Sheaffer once made a Lifetime fountain pen with a torpedo cap and flattail body. However, we think this is either the work of a clever con man or just somebody trying to make a complete pen from two halves. The barrel and nib are of a 1920s Sheaffer Lifetime Junior-Size. The cap is of a 1930s junior Balance. Together, they make a great pen. We found it this way and restored it with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel each have a fair degree of wear. There is no brassing; nor are there any cracks. The 14k gold nib with original 1920s inkfeed write a very nice, firm medium line. 11.8cm capped.
