Hello everybody.  I bought this pen last week at an antiques store while on vacation.  It's my first time in the Sheaffer forum because this is my first Sheaffer FP.  It's also the first pen I bought someplace other than a pen shop and only the second pen I bought that wasn't brand new.  By the way, it writes beautifully.  It came with what I believe to be the original box and, inside the pen, a spent cartridge.  Here are my questions.  Thanks in advance.

  • Which model is it?
  • When would it have been made?
  • Is there a converter for it?

I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

  • Sheaffer's Skripsert Cartridge Pen
  • Late 50s - early 60s. (1957?)
  • Yes, a good bet is the hard to find button converter. I'm not sure if the classic squeeze converter would fit. The semi-hooded nib is called Stylpoint, sometimes Finger Nail.

Being a little more specific, this version of the Skripsert cartridge fountain pen is called the AC181 Cartridge Pen in the 1962 Sheaffer Service Manual.  The previous pen called Skripsert, is advertised up to 1959 and has a bullet shape and size similar to the Snorkel pens and is fitted with the short conical Triumph nib.  Ads for that model in 1960 call it simply the Cartridge Pen.  Your Skripsert came in at least five colors:  black, pastel grey, red, pastel blue, and pastel green.  This version of the Skripsert pen starts showing up in ads starting in 1959 through 1964.  It also had a gold cap variant.
