    Very nice, and seem to be in remarkably good condition. What is the (catalog) color of the pen on the left?

    Yes, their condition is great, but even so, they'll all be cleaned and re-sacced (except for the black Vac-Fill). My initial take on the pen on the left is it's a Sheaffer Snorkel Admiral in "pastel gray."

    Wow that's a nice haul there! Looking forward to updates once you've resacced each. Curious where you found these? Antique store, flea market, estate sale?

    They came from a shop selling new merchandise, but by asking I learned these were knocking around in a bottom drawer below displays of new inventory.
