Sheaffer Pens


Sheaffer pens are solidly made and rarely flamboyant. The best high-tech analogy is Hewlett-Packard. Designed to be the best, absolutely reliable, and more kin to a robin than a peacock. The value in a Sheaffer pen is the use it will give you: year after year without a fuss.

Sheaffer Lifetime Flattop

SOL53 - This is a jade plastic Lifetime (white dot) flat-top.  The nib is a rigid fine.  There's a small crack at the base of the nib - probably not an issue for function.  The cap and barrel are a slight color mis-match (barrel more green).  There are some initials on the back of the cap.   4 1/2", 114 mm

Sheaffer Skripsert Set
Targa Targa

This mint set is really cool - so 1950s.  Light green barrels, pen and pencil, wiith an embossed chrome cap.  Cartridge filler.  The box is in perfect shape, and has four desicated cartridges in it. Both the pen and pencil have stencilled on labels, $5.00 and $3.75, and the box has the set price of $8.75.  Nib is a steel medium conical nib.  Pen is 5 3/8", 135 mm.

Sheaffer Skripsert
Targa Targa

I have 1 of these Sheaffer Skripsert cartridge pens, mint in the box.  The pen in the nib pictures is a prototype for all of these. Nib is a steel medium conical nib. Colors include flesh pink (probably has a better name, but that's the color!). All with stenciled labels saying "$5.00 MEDIUM".    Pens are 5 3/8", 135 mm. The cartridges are basically dried up but are still widely available Sheaffer cartridges.  I also have one similar pen, but with a "deluxe" gold conical nib, gold plated clips, and stencils saying "$8.75 MEDIUM", in pink.  All of these pens can accept an aerometric style Sheaffer converter, but not the piston filler. (the orange and green pens illustrated have been sold)

Price: $35 with Free Shipping in the US - Deluxe models $50
