Description

Details

Type  Vintage snorkel filling fountain pen, restored and working well.

Product Name  Admiral Snorkel in a hard to find color 

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in Canada-- 1952-9. (We notice that the snorkel tube is cut at an angle, which we usually only see with Triumph nibbed snorkels and the open nibbed pens usually have a squared off snorkel tube. This could be a variation done in Canada, or indication of a snorkel tube replacement.)

Length  5-5/8".

Filling System  Snorkel filler. We've restored it with a new sac, point gasket, and O-ring. It's working perfectly.

Color  Vermilion body and cap with gold plated trim and a 1/4" cap band. This is one of the six colors considered most collectible. In Snorkels, Fiesta Red and Vermilion are very close in color, both a bright orange-red, but Vermilion is correct for the Admiral which was not made in Fiesta Red.

Nib  EXTRA FINE 14k #5 nib, marked "Made in Canada". No size label on it, but it is a fine, single-tone 14k #5 nib. It is correct for the Admiral model. It's smooth and firm with nice tipping material and has a little spring but not much line variation.

Condition  Superior condition with minimal handwear. Some plating loss on the section threads, but the clip and cap band look really good. No bite marks, cracks, or major scratches. The imprints are clear and readable, and the pen is working perfectly.

Policies

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.
