Type    fountain pen and matching pencil 

Product Name  Tuckaway Sentinel ("Tuckaway" is the model/style, "Sentinel" denotes the plastic body and steel cap with gold trim look.)

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA

Length  4-5/8" (pen); 4-1/4" (pencil) 

Filling System   The pen fills via a touchdown system. We have replaced the O-ring and ink sac and it is working well. The pencil takes .9mm lead and is also working well.

Color  Black bodies,  with stainless steel cap and gold plated trim.   The pen has a thin amber viewing window.  Both the pen and pencil have extremely short clips and their caps have etchsed squiggely lines that run from top to bottom.

Nib  FINE. Triumph conical 14k nib.  The section has the Gregg shorthand indicator (two characters which we think probably stand for "short" and "hand.")

Condition  Excellent condition for this petite, well designed, shiny set.  The fountain pen has light to moderate wear on the cap and barrel.  there is a small mark mid-barrel and marks caused by posting.    The cap is nice and shiny even though it has some scratching.  The white dot has a small crack and is discolored.  The mechanical pencil has light to moderate scratching on the cap and barrel but no major scratches or marks.  The white dot is perfect.  The imprints on both are clear.

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.
