    Is This A Thick Model Valiant?

    Hello, In early April 2013 I purchased this pen here on FPN from Member Z500. The pen was restored and was exactly as described is the sale post. I was very happy with the sale. Thanks Z500. It was claimed the pen was a Valiant Thick Model with a conical Lifetime 14K two-tone M nib. The striated brown pen is standard sized (I think it is anyway, 5-1/8" capped, 5-7/8" posted):and is a vacuum filler (thin stiff plunger wire). The the clip is 1-3/8" long and the cap band is a little under 5/8" wide.The pen is not personalized. The M nib is a wonderfully smooth writer - the pen stays in my regular rotation. The strong imprint says: W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO. FORT MADISON, IOWA, U.S.A. - MADE IN U.S.A. - Lately, I began to wonder about this pen. It certainly fits into the Valiant category, but I've never seen a thick Valiant with a wide autograph band on it like this before. Then again, I am not a Sheaffer's expert by any means. Perhaps a true Sheaffer's Expert can verify the model & size, and perhaps narrow-down the manufacture date (1939-45?) Is it strictly correct to call this nib a "Triumph" nib? What about conical nibs like this but on Thin Model or "TM" pens; is it correct to call them "Triumph" nibs too? The picture below is from the original for-sale post. Thank You, David

    Sheaffer Valiant Snokel In Need Of Repair

    The plastic threading on my Valiant where the nib screws on is stripped, which I supposed is expected of a pen of this age. Does anyone know where I could find a better conditiond part for this pen? http://i719.photobucket.com/albums/ww191/ParkerDeanPeterson/WP_20140122_0031.jpg

    I Need A Grip

    I've had my Sheaffer Valiant for a while now and I'm needing to get a new grip because the one that is on it currently has mostly stripped threading. Does anyone know where I can find a grip for my pen? http://i719.photobucket.com/albums/ww191/ParkerDeanPeterson/WP_20140122_0031.jpg
