Sheaffer
Pens and Ephemera

William A. Sheaffer founded the Sheaffer Pen Company in 1912. His invention of the lever-filling fountain pen that year revolutionized how fountain pens were filled, and by the 1920s Sheaffer became one of the world's most dominant pen companies. Always innovating filling systems, Sheaffer also created a Vacuum-Fil pen, pneumatic TouchDown filler and pneumatic Snorkel filler that made for the first truly mess-free bottled-ink filling system. Started in Fort Madison, Iowa, the Sheaffer Pen Company today is owned by its one-time rival A.T. Cross.

Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $175.00
Vintage Pens: 5435: Sheaffer: Clipper
There's something particularly nautical and romantic about the Sheaffer Clipper. We have visions of Pan Am Clipper flying boats in the Caribbean or even the older sailing clipper ships with their cargo of tea from China. And yet, the Sheaffer Clipper was cutting edge modern technology in the 1950s. A mess-free way of filling a fountain pen with a snorkel and pneumatic pressure. This vintage pen and pencil set is New Old Stock. The pen is still stickered, and it comes with the original box and instructions. Amazingly, we filled the pen with water, straight out of the box! No restoration needed. The pencil is in excellent working order, too. The nib sticker on the pen says the palladium-silver nib writes a fine line. Click the headline for close-ups! Pastel Green.

Vintage Pens: 5434: Sheaffer: Valiant
Breaking our string of unused New Old Stock pens is this barely used Sheaffer Valiant pen and pencil set. It saw a little ink, and the pencil saw maybe a little more use, but these items are in great condition. Fantastic condition for this pastel green set. Minimal to light wear from use. We restored the vintage pen to full working order. Click the headline for close-ups. Its two-tone 14k gold Triumph nib writes an extra-fine line. The pencil works well and comes with its half-used original blue eraser and spare lead. These classic writing instruments come with their original box, which has seen a little more wear protecting them.

Vintage Pens: 5431: Sheaffer: Sovereign
So new looking, you'll think Marty McFly brought them back from the 1950s in his Delorean. New Old Stock! This Sheaffer Sovereign set comes in that great dark green from the TouchDown filler era. The only thing we restored on this pen is the ink sac and O-ring, in the off chance you'd want to write with this museum piece. Click the headline for a close-up, and you can see that the ink window is still that factory fresh yellow-green. Even the original presentation box looks pretty close to perfect. The vintage pen has a smooth 14k gold nib that writes a fine line. The pencil still works well.

Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M

Vintage Pens: 5429: Sheaffer: Sentinel
In 1949, Sheaffer released the Sheaffer TouchDown filling system in its mainline pens such as this Sheaffer Sentinel. Our vintage pen is New Old Stock and in its original box! Never used, along with its original N.O.S. pencil, these writing instruments are perfect. We restored the filling system with a new O-ring and ink sac, just in case you do want to write them. The set even includes the original instruction guide. Only the first-year pens had the wider barrel, which we prefer. Sheaffer brought out the TM, or Thin Model, version the following year. The outer clamshell box shows some wear from protecting its precious cargo for more than 70 years! Click the headline for close-ups.

Vintage Pens: 5428: Sheaffer: Tuckaway Crest
New Old Stock! Stickered in the original box! Check out our Sheaffer Tuckaway pen and pencil set. Untouched since the 1940s, the fountain pen and pencil are pristine. Check out the pure, factory-fresh yellow-green ink viewing window. The only thing we did to the vintage pen is install a new ink sac and O-ring, in the off chance you want to write with the fountain pen. The pencil is likewise in perfect working order. The original instructions are under the pad. The short pocket clip's outer shell feels a little loose, but the main anchor of the clip is strong. The box has some schmutz on the back and on some of the edges, but the box remains whole and in good structural condition.
Vintage Pens: 4830 Sheaffer Balance Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4830: Sheaffer: Balance Lifetime
If you have hands on the larger size, arthritis or small hands that just prefer large pens, you will love the experience of the this Sheaffer Balance Lifetime. This model is one of our all-time favorite oversized designs. Large and light weight, you can write with it all day and not cramp up. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Plus, you can see through the ink viewing window to know when you are about to run dry. The pen is in great working condition, but it shows some wear from use. The nickel plating is wearing off the clip and lever. A hairline crack has formed at the lip of the cap. We've taken some efforts to stabilize it, but we do not recommend posting the cap. We think that you will especially like the large, two-tone 14k gold nib. You will write a smooth medium line with just enough feedback to help you feel the paper below your point. Exquisite. 14cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: BB
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 5426: Sheaffer: Junior
True Sheaffer Juniors are a little more difficult to find. Unfortunately, this one has been through hell and back. Looks like somebody's junior chewed the daylights out of the cap and tail of the pen. It also has a replacement nib. Nevertheless, it is still a handsome green striation for the design with nickel trim. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. You will write a fairly smooth double broad line with its 14k gold replacement nib. Click the headline for close-ups. Still a good daily driver, if you like writing with a fire hose. 13.8cm capped.
