    Default ~FS~ Swan - English Parker Duofold Jr. Set - Sheaffer's Snorkel Set (NOS)

    Hi all,

    These pens have been restored inside and outside and are ready to fill with ink and use, unless noted otherwise.

    If you see one or more pens that you like, please reply to me at:

    michael@northwestpenworks.com

    If you intend to make a purchase, please read "Rules, Shipping, Etc." at the bottom of this post.

    #1. circa 1929 Mabie Todd & Co. "Swan" fountain pen in Lapis Blue. This is a long slender pen, with a No. 2 size nib. There is brassing across the top of the clip ball, also there is some pitting on the lever, which is fairly typical for Swan pens and Mabie Todd pens in general. It also has some tooth marks between the top cap band and the edge of the cap. There is some very slight discoloration of the celluloid plastic towards the barrel end. The nib is a smooth wet writing Flexible Fine 14K and will make lines up to 2 + millimeters. Capped the pen measures 5 3/8 inches or 13.7 cm. As you can see in the photos, this is really a gorgeous pen.

    Price $220.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.








    2. ~SOLD~ to M.M.

    1960's Parker Duofold Junior boxed set in dark blue, made in England. There is no damage to report with this set. It had been inked, but it appears to have had very little use. The pen and pencil are slender. It had been stored with black ink inside, so the plyglass ink sac has some very light staining. The pencil is working as it should. The pen has an "Aerometric" fill system. The nib is a very smooth writing Fine 14K with a bit of flex. Capped the pen measures 5 1/4 inches or 13.5 cm. The barrel imprint on the pen is crisp, but struck a bit light.

    ~SOLD~ to M.M. $99.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.








    3. 1950's Sheaffer's Snorkel "Sentinel" Lifetime White Dot fountain pen and pencil boxed set in mint/dipped condition. I have not restored the set and I can feel the barrel o-ring has hardened, when I work the plunger tube. Meaning that it will not fill. The pen still has the paper band on the section, stating it has a Fine nib. Also note the foil tags under the clips. The caps are stainless steel with gold filled trim. The box is in very nice condition. The pencil is working well.

    Price $145.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.





    Rules, Shipping, Etc.

    The usual rules apply, the person sending the first e-mail on an item
    ~stating intent to purchase~ gets the item. I will give you 5 days to
    decide if you like the pen or not. I prefer payment by PayPal but also
    accept checks or money orders in USD. I can only accept payment by
    PayPal from countries outside the U.S. I ship worldwide, so
    international customers are always welcome.

    Prices are post paid in the U.S., and will be shipped with a tracking
    number and insurance. I normally ship inside the U.S. by U.S.
    Postal Service Priority Mail. I also ship to other countries by Priority
    Mail. I can also ship to other countries by Express International Mail,
    if you request it, but it is costly.

    Return Policy: I will always allow pens, or other items, to be
    returned. If there is a problem I would prefer the chance to fix the problem
    or replace the item, when and if possible. Otherwise a full refund
    will be offered. If you find a problem and choose to send the item
    (pen, mechanical pencil, etc.) to someone else to be corrected, I will
    not be responsible for any other problems.

    Happy penning!
