Just received the 2nd and 3rd pens. Never have had a blue Snorkel, so unsure of the color of the 3rd, From left to right: Black Imperial, Pastel Blue Snorkel (?), Peacock Blue Snorkel (?), Pastel Green Snorkel, Persian Blue TD, Black Snorkel. Other pens are for reference, since I don't have a fancy lighting setup. (Picture taken in artificial light)
Following Picture is natural light:
Got both of the blues off eBay, where they both looked like Peacock (the seller was clueless when I asked). The one I think is peacock just doesn't seem to be as vibrant as from pictures I've seen online, so I'm not really sure. Got both in pretty good, but not restored, condition for cheap so I guess I can't really complain. If it really is Peacock, it took me less than 15 minutes of searching eBay to find it... not exactly what I expected for "rare." Missed out on mint condition sage and fern green sets a couple days ago...
Would people who have been collecting Snorkels for more the two weeks or so that I have been say that the color rarity ratings here are correct (or maybe just outdated, no offence intended)? http://vacumania.com/website/sheaffersnorkelguide.htm
Haven't seen vermillion, Fiesta red, mandarin, periwinkle, buckskin, or demonstrator over that span, while searching extensively. Granted, I'm cheap and would rather find them on eBay than get them from a professional.
