I am looking for sheaffer lever filler or vac filler, sentinel or valiant or statesman.

Preferably have the conical triumph nib but open nib will do. I prefer black but other colour are acceptable.

Restored is not necessary but should be in good condition, no cracks.

I know this is a long shot but I'll try my luck.

I have some Sheaffers. Let me get them together and let you look them over. I know I have some vac fillers that are not restored.... It will have to be Friday or Saturday though because work is getting in the way of pen fun once again.... ;)

I have a Sheaffer "fat" Valiant with the Triumph nib. It's a lever filler and has a new ink sac. The cap is badly brassed as you can see from the picture. I have a source for an excellent cap with a wider cap band that is in great condition. I don't own the cap, but could get it right away.

I really enjoy writing with this pen. It has a fine nib.

The Sheaffer Valiant is on the right in this picture. I don't have any others right this minute but could find or take some if you want to talk seriously.

Hi,

I have a Sheaffer's Valient white dot pen and pencil set, black, conical nib, and in as new condition although the pen has been inked as I just tried it in water and it expelled ink. The eraser on the pencil has never been used. If you are interested, reply to my e-mail and I will send pictures.

Email me

This is a beautiful set. I also have a Crest Delux with a gold-filled cap and conical nib, a Sentinel in gray with a conical nib, chrome cap with gold-filled trim, and a Valient in maroon with gold filled trim.

Hope to hear from you,

Regards,

Chris
