Type  Snorkel fountain pen and mechanical pencil set in great working condition

Product Name  Admiral Snorkel

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer USA - 1952-9

Length  Fountain pen:  5-5/8"; Mechanical Pencil:  5"

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 send in instructions on how to use this filling system.  The pencil takes 0.9mm leads.  

Color  Buckskin Tan bodies and caps with gold plated trim.  The color is a blush pink buckskin.  This is one of the harder to find colors, though not super rare like Periwinkle and Peacock.

Nib  Fine 14k open nib marked F2. It is in great condition, with a nice tipping, and feels quite smooth and firm.  

Condition  Superior condition for both the pen and pencil,  with no cracks, chips, dents or dings.  The set comes in the original Sheaffer's box. The pen has just a few small marks at the end of the barrel.  The pencil has some plating wear on the cone.  The imprints are clear and, in fact, you can still see remains of the model and price chalk marks on the pen.  The box is a little squished and is mising the strings, but it does include the instruction sheet.

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.
