I wonder if it has to do with the age of both models. The Legacy has been in production since 1995 and the Heritage variant since 2003. The Valor didn't come out until 2006.
Also, there seems to be few retailers selling the Valor. Several authorized Sheaffer dealers that I know of (like Fountain Pen Hospital and IIRC the defunct Art Brown's) didn't even stock the Valor, but they had the Legacy Heritage. Perhaps not as many are being made. I'd love a Valor myself.
