Vintage Pens: 4213 Sheaffer Lifetime Flat Top
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 4213: Sheaffer: Lifetime Flat Top
Back in the 1920s a new technology came along to revolutionize business: carbon paper. To make the most of it with a fountain pen, a firm nib was needed. Sheaffer made some of the firmest nibs of the era to press through and make duplicates and triplicates of documents easily. Our Sheaffer Lifetime flat top model is a senior oversized vintage pen. We restored it with a new ink sac. It has some pretty heavy wear from use, most easily seen in the brassing of the cap band. There are no cracks, but the cap and barrel show wear. The clip, also, is a little loose. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, extra-fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4185 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 4185: Sheaffer: Imperial
Sheaffer Imperial pens got their start in the vintage pen era, which is why we've included it here. This one is more modern of brushed steel and what we suspect is a "palladium silver" nib. This pen is a great daily driver that was a bit beat up in its earlier life. You'll see plenty of scratches and marks of pitting. It comes with an original aerometric-style squeeze-bar converter that still works. You can also use modern Sheaffer converters or cartridges. The cap wiggles a bit but closes tightly. You'll write a firm, extra-fine line with feedback. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4184 Sheaffer Junior
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4184: Sheaffer: Junior
"Get them while they're young, Evita. Get them while they're young." We always liked that line in the famous musical, and William Sheaffer was nobody's fool. That's why he created the Sheaffer Junior, to hook school kids on Sheaffer pens of their own to grow into. Perfectly sized for kids around 6th grade through middle school, we have restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Definitely a user grade pen, you'll see blemished in the nickel trim and some wear on the rest of the pen. Still, there are no cracks. Its 14k gold "Junior" nib is a little on the rarer side and writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. 11.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4093: Sheaffer: Connaisseur
Former Sheaffer employee, and regular pen show circuit attendee, Dan Reppert designed the original Sheaffer Connaisseur fountain pen, as a way to upgrade the No Nonsense model. Sheaffer had no interest when he presented the idea to the company. After Dan left Sheaffer for a couple years, he was surprised his pen was now in production! It is a remarkable pen that is such a smooth writer. Our vintage pen is the early 810 model. It was someone's beloved user. There's heavy rubbing on the barrel, just past the threads, where the cap had been screwed on and off many times. There are a few other minor blemishes on the cap and barrel, but the pen is in generally excellent condition. It comes with its original working squeeze-bar converter. Its 18k gold nib writes a buttery smooth, wet medium line...though we suspect Sheaffer called it a fine line. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4095 Sheaffer Nostalgia
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4095: Sheaffer: Nostalgia
When the 14k solid-gold filigree Sheaffer Nostalgia was first released, it was an homage to the great designs of Sheaffer 50 years earlier. Now, nearly 50 years later, it is a vintage pen in its own right. We love this pen in nearly mint condition. Only a few small traces of wear keep it from being a truly mint pen. We thought we had a Sheaffer squeeze-bar converter for it, but it was too long. Not sure if Sheaffer makes a modern converter that is short enough, but modern Sheaffer cartridges still work great. Best of all is this pen's buttery smooth 14k gold nib. It writes a luscious fine line. The pen is marked 14k gold on the clip and cap lip. 13.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4097 Sheaffer Prelude
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4097: Sheaffer: Prelude
You can see your reflection in the polished metal finish of our Sheaffer Prelude. Golden trim makes it look even better. True, it does show a some wear from use, but no dents. There is a ring around the tail from posting. Write an extra-fine line with its two-tone steel nib. Fill the pen with either Sheaffer cartridges or converters. (Sadly, neither are included.) Great for daily use. 13.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4098 Sheaffer Fashion 270
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $39.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4098: Sheaffer: Fashion 270
Show your sense of style with the Sheaffer Fashion 270. Fluted with gold electroplating, this modern fountain pen is a nice writing accessory sticking out of your pocket. Only a little wear in spots shows on the cap and barrel. It still has its working squeeze-bar converter, but it also can use modern Sheaffer converters and cartridges. You'll write a firm, fine-medium line with a little feedback. We think the nib is either gold-plated steel or a golden alloy. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4149 Sheaffer Stratowriter Desk Set
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4149: Sheaffer: Stratowriter Desk Set
Early Sheaffer ballpoint desk pens aren't an everyday find. We think these are desk versions of Stratowriters, but we could be wrong. All they say is that they are "Gold Electroplated" with a crown. Does the crown make them Imperials? We aren't sure, but we saved them from old age and corrosion. Click the headline to look past the glittering shine. You can still see a lot of damage to the finish of the electroplating. There's even a spot of steel visible on one of the tapers. Both tapers have white dots, but we wanted to show off the worst of the wear, damage and corrosion that remains. We think these take the original refills that are no longer made but replaced by clever means out there on the web. 17.5cm.
