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

Product Name  Snorkel Crest, the "Crest" name changed a few times. In 1947 the name was changed to "Crest Deluxe" but then advertisements continued to call the model, "Crest" while service manuals called the model, "Crest Deluxe." When the snorkel system came out the Crest became the, "TM Snorkel Crest," and then finally just the "Snorkel Crest."

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA -- 1950s.

Length  Just a touch over 5-9/16".

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

Color  Jet black barrel with a gold plated cap with a pattern of stepped vertical lines. 

Nib  FINE 14k two-tone Triumph nib is firm and smooth with nice tipping material. It is marked F5 which is correct for this model.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The pen has very low handwear and no plating wear. There are polishing marks on the nib and cap in addition to a dent just above the white dot. Barely any signs of usage. The pen is fully restored and working perfectly.  Ships in Sheaffer Snorkel box.

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.
