Type  Touchdown filling fountain pen, restored and working well.

Product Name   Valiant - this is the "Fat" Touchdown version from before the TM models were introduced.  

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA --  1949-50, with a nib serial number:  1008710

Length  5-1/4 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  Brown with a 3/8 inch wide cap band with a groove near either edge of it.  It has an amber viewing window.

Nib  MEDIUM Sheaffer's 14k gold Triumph style two-tone nib with serial number. 1008710.   The silver colored masking is platinum.. The nib has a nice waverly upturn. Usage over time has created a slight left-ward oritentation, but the nib is very smooth from most writing angles.

Condition  Superior condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings.  This is a handsome, stately pen in a deep chocolate brown color.  The barrel has some light scratching at the end, but both the cap and barrel are otherwise quite pristine.  The clip and cap band are beautiful.  The white dot is perfect.  The imprints are clear, though a little of the white has rubbed off the first few letters.

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.
