Color  Fiesta Red barrels with stainless steel caps in a pattern of stepped lines, with gold plated trim. This is one of the six colors considered most collectible. There are two reds in Sheaffer Snorkels (Fiesta Red and Vermilion) that are very difficult to tell apart. We are calling this Fiesta Red because the Clipper model was available in that color and not Vermillion.

The imprints are worn but readable, and the pencil still has the "$7.50" chalk mark on its barrel. The pen has been fully restored, and both pieces are working very well.
