SH1792 Sheaffer Valiant Snorkel. (Fine)

Date: 1950s

Size: Capped - 143mm; posted - 163mm.

A very attractive glossy jet black Valiant Snorkel.  This pen is fitted with gold filled pocket clip and wide cap lip band and a beautiful large two-tone 14 carat gold Triumph nib.  The gold filling on the clip and cap band is in excellent condition with no brassing evident.  Above the clip is the Sheaffer white dot. The whole pen is in excellent condition with no damage evident.  Both cap and barrel exhibit a good original sheen with no cracks or splits and not even any noticeable surface scratches.  The large two-tone Triumph nib is made from 14 carat gold and is in a fine point.  The snorkel filler is still shiny with no tarnishing.  All the insides are as they should be. 

I have fully serviced this pen.  The pen now fills very well - the plunger operates easily and the Snorkel tube winds in and out smoothly.  I have tested the pen and found that it writes very smoothly, laying down a wet and consistent fine width line

A very classy pen and an excellent writer.
