Type  Touchdown filling fountain pen, restored and working well.

Product Name   Valiant - this is the later TM (Thin Model) version. The music nib is what makes this pen rare.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA -- 1950-52.

Length  5-3/8 inches. 

Filling System  Touchdown filling system. We've restored it with a new sac and O-ring, and the pen is working very well.

Color  Solid burgundy with a 3/8 inch wide cap band with a groove near either edge of it.

Nib  Sheaffer's 14k gold Triumph style two-tone nib is a MUSIC NIB with two slits and three tines. The pen offers nice line variation. Please see the writing sample below.. The silver colored masking is platinum. It's smooth and springy with nice tipping material. The nib has a nice waverly upturn. 

Please note: this is a rare nib and is easily damaged. It was very hard to adjust, and it is now writing smoothly. 

Condition  Excellent + condition. The pen has light handwear and a few marks. There is a mark to the upper right of the clip and a scratch to the lower left. The barrel is much cleaner with a slight impression at the end from capping. The imprint on the barrel is fairly crisp and clear. The pen has been fully restored and it's working very well. (The clip looks brassed in the photographs but it was just tarnished.)

Full refund will be given if the customer decides to return the pen, however it must be in the exact same condtion as received with no damage or change to the nib.

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 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.
