New old stock Sheaffer parts; 3 different types of Sheaffer pressure bars like the ones you've pulled out that were too mangled up to get back in. Specify by letter L through N which you would like to order. A great way to keep your Sheaffers all original stock. Size SHL fits a Balance barrel that is 3. The bar itself is 2.
Vintage Feature: The 1950s Sheaffer Snorkel Fountain Pen
Vintage Sheaffer, Parker, Wahl, and Waterman Fountain Pens | Collectors Weekly
By Maribeth Keane — November 25th, Jim Mamoulides talks about collecting vintage fountain pens, and the various models and styles produced by manufacturers including Sheaffer, Parker, Montblanc, Waterman, and others over the years. Jim can be reached via his website, PenHero. When I got my first job out of college, I did what a lot of people do: I ran out and bought myself a Montblanc pen and fountain pen set. I was immediately captured by that. I remember as a kid that I tried calligraphy and used a pen my grandfather had.
Lovely Scarce Vintage Sheaffer Targa Fountain Pen - Brushed Steel - Working
This is more of a feature than a formal review, and keep in mind that your mileage may vary greatly when buying a vintage pen. Onto the pens at hand… I currently have two Sheaffer Snorkels in my collection, a grey Admiral and blue Saratoga. The Admiral has a 14k gold nib, that is open-style. The Admiral is Canadian-made, and when I purchased it, it was pretty much in New-Old-Stock condition — still having the sticker denoting nib size on then grip of the pen.
Fill type: Press fill. Nib: Sheaffer. Colour: Silver colour.
