Description

Details

Type   Fountain pen with "Touchdown" filling system

Product Name   Statesman - this is the early, fat version before they switched to the "TM" (thin model)

Manufacturer and Year   Sheaffer, USA - 1949 or very early 1950s

Length   5-5/16"

Filling System   This is a touchdown filling pen. We've restored the filling system by replacing the O-ring and the ink sac, so it should work for years and years to come. We will enclose instructions on how it works.

Color   Evergreen with gold plated trim

Nib   MEDIUM FINE 2-tone 14k "Sheaffer's" open nib is rather firm. 

Condition   Very Nice condition. The cap bands on both pieces are engraved with the initials F G F.  Pen: Microscratching on the bbarrel and cap, and a couple of more prominent individual scratches. Overall the look is fairly smooth and shiny. There some small indents on the blind cap and end of the barrel that are probably tooth marks . The trim is in quite good condition, just a tiny bit of brassing on the clip's opening. The cap band looks great, no brassing. Pencil: Fairly smooth and shiny with some slight scratches here and there. No bite marks. The opening of the nose cone is slightly dented, but it doesn't affect the lead moving in and out.

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.
