Be the first to review this product

Sheaffer snorkel "Statesman" from 1952-5. This full size pen has a burgundy body and cap with gold plated trim. Very Nice condition, with a PdAg Triumph nib that is medium. We replaced the ink sac, point gasket and O-ring and the snorkel filling systems works well.

Type  Snorkel fountain pen

Product Name  Sheaffer Statesman Snorkel

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, Canada -- 1950-2

Length 5-1/2"

Filling System  Snorkel filler, working perfectly. We'll send instructions on how to use the snorkel filling system.

Color  Burgundy body and cap. Gold-plated clip and 3/8" wide cap band. 

Nib  MEDIUM Triumph nib isn't marked, but we believe it is PdAg (palladium-silver) because that's what belongs on this model and we've read that it is not always marked.  

Condition  Very Nice condition. The pen has handwear and microscratching. There is a fine crack on the back side of the conical nib (see photo) which does not extend all the way to the bottom edge; we've tested the pen and it doesn't leak or otherwise affect the functioning of the pen. Some plating loss on the section threads. The imprint is worn, but still legible. The pen is fully restored and working well.

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.
