Sheaffer Statesman Snorkel 1950s - Burgundy, 14k Gold Tube, Fine (Excellent, Restored)

Be the first to review this product

Sheaffer snorkel "Statesman" from 1952-5. The snorkel tube is one of the hard to find 14k gold ones. This full size pen has a burgundy body and cap with gold plated trim. Very nice condition, with a steel Triumph nib that is fine and very smooth. We replaced the ink sac, point gasket and O-ring and the snorkel filling systems works well.

Type Like new snorkel fountain pen in working condition, restored. The solid gold snorkel tube is a bit of a rarity.
Product Name Sheaffer Statesman snorkel
Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer 1952-5 ...
Length  5-1/2"
Filling System Snorkel filler - working perfectly. We'll send instructions on how to use the snorkel filling system.
Color Burgundy body and cap. Gold plated trim.
Nib FINE. Triumph nib isn't marked, but we believe it is PdAg (palladium silver) because that's what belongs on this model and we've read that it is not always marked. It is in excellent condition with a lot of tipping material. No flex. Sometimes these nibs are flat, sometimes they arc upward, and sometimes --as is the case with this one -- they angle downward.
Condition Excellent condition with no noticeable scratches and very little wear. Some signs of light very usage. We replaced the O-ring, point gasket and the ink sac, and thoroughly tested the pen. It is ready to write! There are 1/16" long stress cracks originating where the clip attaches at the top, but you have to look with magnification to see them.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
