Description

Details

Type  Vintage lever filling fountain pen and mechanical pencil set with military style clips. 

Product Name  1000 Lifetime Valiant. We think the Valiant name refers to this military clip 1000 model, since the slimmer model is called the Vigilant. The pen is marked Skyboy on the clip. Note that Sheaffer used the Valiant name again later on one of their touchdown/snorkel models.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA -- circa 1940s.

Length  5-1/4" pen, 5-1/16" pencil.

Filling System  Lever filling pen whcih we've restored with a new sac. The pencil takes 0.9mm (or "thin") leads, which it extends via the traditional twist mechanism. Both pieces are working very well, and we'll include a small pack of leads for the pencil.

Color  Golden Brown striated with gold plated trim.

Nib  EXTRA FINE two tone 14k Lifetime nib with a serial number. The masking is in nice condition, the nib is smooth with nice tipping. It has a slight upturn to it.

Condition  The pen is in excellent condition with just a few small scratches and marks and some small spots of brassing on the edges of the lever, the tip of the clip, and parts of the cap band. The pencil has some brassing on the tip of the clip and wear on the end of the cone, as well as scratches on the cap and barrel and tooh marks on the upper cap. No cracks or chips, dings or dents, or personalization on either pen or pencil. Both are working very well, the pen is fully restored.

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.
