Restored Sheaffer EXCELLENT 1ST YEAR Burgundy Snorkel Clipper Fine Point
EXCELLENT 1ST YEAR Burgundy Snorkel Clipper. Length capped – 5 1/2. This 1st year Snorkel Clipper is in excellent restored condition. Snorkel pens made in the first year of production (1952) were equipped with a 14k gold Snorkel tube. The company didn’t advertise or otherwise publicize the fact, and it wasn’t until sometime in the 1960s that a pair of collectors sent a tube for assay and the first-year Snorkels became collectibles. Sheaffer’s White Dot Clipper features a stainless steel cap with gold-filled trim and a palladium silver Triumph nib (80% palladium, 20% silver). Palladium silver is a precious metal that Sheaffer began using in 1933 for the masks on premium gold nibs because of its excellent ink-flow properties. Modern fountain pens with palladium silver nibs sell for about the same price as comparable models with 18k gold nibs. I will include a photocopy of an original Sheaffer’s Snorkel instructions leaflet. Replacement of all seals and the sac. Smoothing and adjusting the nib. Refinishing the plastic, stainless steel, and gold-filled surfaces. Filling the pen with ink (not just dipping). And producing multiple writing samples over 2 days (like the ones in the photos). I guarantee the pens I restore write smoothly and fill as designed. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Pens & Writing Instruments\Pens\Fountain Pens\Sheaffer”. The seller is “3rdlakerobert” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.

Restored Sheaffer MINT Black 1st YEAR Snorkel Clipper Fine Point Pen & Pencil
MINT Black 1st YEAR Snorkel Clipper. Fine Point Pen & Pencil. Length capped – 5 1/2. This is a mint, first-year (1952) Snorkel pen and pencil set with the unique 14k gold Snorkel tube. When I disassembled this set I concluded there had been little or no use. I’ve taken a photo of the inside of the pen cap that shows no sign of ink. The wet swab I inserted into the sac came out clean. I’ve replaced the seals and sac, cleaned, and lightly polished. The barrel imprint is very deep. The pencil has an unused eraser and several leads in the storage area under the eraser. The case is in very good condition and not original to the set. The spring that snaps the cover closed is broken, and there is an ink spot on the left side of the lining. The set includes the original Snorkel instructions leaflet dated 10/52. The palladium silver nib is the earliest example. With the single word, Sheaffer. Replacement of all seals and the sac. Filling the pen with ink (not just dipping). And producing multiple writing samples over 2 days (like the one in the photo). I guarantee the pens I restore write smoothly and fill as designed.

EXCELLENT Burgundy 1ST YEAR Snorkel Statesman. Length capped – 5 1/2. Point – Extra Fine Point. This burgundy 1st year White Dot Statesman is in excellent condition. Please see below for details of the restoration process. For the first year of Snorkel production, the Sheaffer factory turned out pens with solid gold Snorkel tubes with no announcement of that fact. It was years later when a couple collectors had the tubes assayed that first-year Snorkels became collectibles. I will include a photocopy of an original Snorkel instructions leaflet.

EXCELLENT 1ST YEAR Burgundy Snorkel Clipper. Medium to Fine Point. Length capped – 5 1/2. This first-year burgundy Clipper is in excellent restored condition. There are no faults. Clippers feature palladium silver nibs. Palladium is known for its excellent ink flow characteristics and was used as a mask material on Sheaffer’s best gold nibs for decades. First-year Snorkels (1952) had solid gold Snorkel tubes installed by Sheaffer with no advertising or announcement. A few years later a couple collectors discovered the fact when they sent a tube for assay. I will include a photocopy of the original Sheaffer Snorkel paper instructions leaflet that came with every Snorkel pen. Replacement of all seals and the sac. Smoothing and adjusting the nib.
