Vintage Pens: 3064 Sheaffer Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 3064: Sheaffer: Clipper
Set sail with a Sheaffer Clipper. Our classic snorkel pen comes in the rare "Peacock Blue"! It has been fully restored and is in good working order. It shows some light wear, but not much. Click the headline for close-ups. The Sheaffer Clipper was one of their premium pens. The pen came with a two-tone steel and gold-plated cap with a white dot and nib was a "Triumph" nib (conical) made of "Palladium Silver." This even has those words in script on the nib. The nib is a razor thin extra-fine nib. We don't know if Sheaffer was still calling this an "accountant's nib" at the time, but that is basically what it is. It is sharp with a little feedback, but it writes exceedingly well. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3051 Sheaffer TM
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 3051: Sheaffer: TM
In 1948 Sheaffer released a new filling system called the TouchDown. It was a pneumatic system that used air pressure to empty and a fill the pen. In 1949 they altered it to be a thinner model called the TM. It was only made through 1951, with the Snorkel arriving in 1952. Our Sheaffer TM has been fully restored with a new ink sac and O-ring. There is some wear from use, but there are no cracks or deep scratches. It has a strong imprint. The nib is a two-tone 14k gold that writes a very nice, firm fine-medium line. 13.5cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3044 Sheaffer Legacy
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3044: Sheaffer: Legacy
Sheaffer pays tribute to its bold PFM pen line from the 1950s and '60s with the modern Sheaffer Legacy. This rollerball pen takes so many design cues from the PFM, that is can almost be mistaken for the original. Only the modern pen is a little wider and heavier. Light wear blemishes this handsome pen. We include a new Sheaffer rollerball refill with the purchase. 13.7cm.
Vintage Pens: 2967 Sheaffer Targa
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 2967: Sheaffer: Targa
Gold plating is cut in a spiral design around this Sheaffer Targa Classic fountain pen. Released in 1979, we think it might be time to start considering these a vintage pen. Cars are considered classics after 20 years. Just sayin'. Anyhow, this looks fantastic and unused in its original box. The box did its job well, as it is banged up a bit while protecting the pen. It comes with a working original converter, but it will take modern replacement converters and Sheaffer ink cartridges. It also has a nice 14k gold inlaid nib that writes a nice medium line with some FLEX. It is pressure sensitive but not a wet noodle. Yet, the slightest pressure moves it from medium to double broad.
Vintage Pens: 2652 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99  Was: $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: 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.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2233 Sheaffer Balance Millennium
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99  Was: $124.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2233: Sheaffer: Balance Millennium
Sheaffer produced a beautiful limited edition series of pens as we entered the new millennium. Inspired by their greatest pens of the 1920s and '30s, this ballpoint Sheaffer Balance Millennium sports a fantastic blue marble cap and barrel that recreate the shape of the 1920s' Sheaffer Lifetime torpedo pens. Actually made in the U.S.A., this pen is in like-new condition. The twist action of the ballpoint mechanism works perfectly, and the ballpoint refill works well, although we have no idea how much ink is left. 14cm.
