Type  Snorkel fountain pen and mechanical pencil set in original box.

Product Name  Admiral Snorkel

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer USA -- 1952-9

Length  Pen is just under 5-9/16", pencil is 5-1/16"

Filling System  Snorkel filler. We've fully restored the system with a new sac, point gasket, and O-ring. It's working perfectly, and we'll include instructions on how to use it. The pencil takes 0.9mm (or "thin") leads, which it extends via the traditional twist mechanism, which is working well. We'll include a small pack of leads.

Color  Pastel blue with gold plated trim, 1/4" cap band.

Nib  FINE 14k nib. It is in great condition.

Condition  Superior condition, in box, with paperwork.  No cracks, chips, dents, or dings on either the pen or pencil.  The imprints on both are clear.  The fountain pen has light wear toward the end of the barrel (caused by posting) and a few very small marks on the cap.   The slim, dainty pencil is perfect.  It still has the price chalkmark of $6.00 on the barrel.  The clamsheel "snorkel" box has a piece of the overlay material missing on the top and a little scratch mark on the left top side.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

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.
