Type  Vintage Touchdown fountain pen

Product Name  Sheaffer Admiral

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA -- 1950-2

Length 5-1/16"

Filling System  Touchdown filler. We've replaced the sac and the O-ring. It's fully restored and working very well.

Color  Solid "Persian" blue cap and barrel with a 1/8" cap band and an amber viewing window. The trim is gold plated.  There is a personalization, "Ann Meyer", on the barrel.  

Nib  MEDIUM 14k Feather Touch #5 nib is two-toned, fairly firm, and smooth with nice tipping material. The silver colored masking is platinum. 

Condition  Very nice condition with a nice nib.  The pen has handwear and microscratching on the cap and barrel, particularly on the lower barrel near the filler end.  There are a few small nicks or possibly bite marks on the barrel.  There's a bulge in the shape of the cap where the plastic has contracted around the inner cap, but the cap still screws on well without binding. The trim and clip are nice with just a little microscratching on the clip.  The imprint is clear. The pen is fully restored and working well.

Excellent condition for this attractive, nice-sized, fountain pen.  The barrel has light scratching with horizontal capping lines and a small dot of surface chafing on the very top part of the barrel near where it meets the cap.  The cap has light to moderate scratching with some light bite marks at the very top, an area of discoloration directly opposite of the clip, and two short,  thin dark scratch lines rising up from one area of the cap ring.  The cap band and clip have some microscratching but no plating wear. The section looks great.  There are no cracks, dings, dents, or chips.  The pen has a personalization, "Ann Meyer" on the barrel.  The imprints are clear.

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.)

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.
