For Sale – Some Sheaffers

Update: These pens have all been sold.

Sheaffers for Sale

It’s time to make some painful cuts to my accumulation. It’s time to pass some beautiful Sheaffers along to people who will use them. These are Sheaffers I don’t use despite them being terrific pens. The Crests, Snorkel and Targa are too thin for me to use comfortably for extended periods, while the PFM I is a duplicate and I’m keeping the better color.

Boxes and paperwork are not included. Converters are included for pens that use a converter, see the listing for the type of converter that is included. Converters are recent purchases and probably don’t match the style of the original converter.

Shipping in the U.S. is $7.90 (small flat rate box) for as many pens as will fit in the box unless otherwise noted. Payment is via PayPal Goods & Services and ships only to addresses in the PayPal payment. Sorry, no international shipping for these pens. U.S. based forwarding services are OK as long as the U.S. address is in your PayPal payment.

Prices are firm, although multiple pen purchases won’t increase shipping costs as long as they fit in the box. Plus I’ll take 5% off the pen prices if you purchase more than one pen at the same time.

The first firm “I want it” gets the pen and I’ll send a PayPal invoice. Contact me using the contact form on this page, or email me at ray[@]fpquest.com (remove the brackets).

For Sale: 2 Pelikans and 1 Waterman

 

These three pens have the distinction of meeting my requirements to be sold (unused for over two years) but I found an excuse not to sell them on my first pass. After additional consideration, I decided to go ahead and sell them.

Pelikan M620 Cities Series Piccadilly Circus, Medium 18K Gold Nib – $300 (SOLD)

 

Excellent condition. No box or paperwork. A signature is required for delivery unless you opt-out of the signature.

Waterman Liaison Cobra, Fine 18K Gold Nib – $175 (SOLD)

 

Excellent condition. This is a strange pen, which appeals to me. The end of the pen twists like a piston knob, but instead, it releases the section/converter which is lowered out of the pen. The converter is included with the pen. No box or paperwork is included. A signature is required for delivery unless you opt-out of the signature. I reviewed this pen back in February 2013, the review is here.

Pelikan M101N Lizard, Extra Fine 14K Gold Nib – $375 (Withdrawn)

 

Excellent condition. This is the model released in 2013, not the vintage M101N that this pen was a homage to. No box or paperwork, just the pen. A signature is required for delivery unless you opt-out of the signature. I reviewed this pen here.

Pens For Sale: Clearance Time

All the pens in this post have been sold.

I’m trying to sell off my lower value, long-ignored fountain pens in an efficient way. All pens are in excellent condition, some may have micro-scratches, some look (or actually are) unused. No box or paperwork is included for any pen. There’s no converter unless it’s specifically listed for the pen. If a year is listed, it’s when I bought the pen new. There may have been design changes for the model since I bought the pen. All are steel nibs except the Platinum Shoji.

Quantity discount: Take 5% off two pens, 10% off three or more pens
Shipping: Free for orders over $50 (after qty discount), otherwise $8.00 (US only) If you want a signature required delivery (to avoid the pen walking off your porch) you can request it. It will cost an extra $3, even for free shipping.

If you’re interested, reach me using [ray [@] fpquest.com] or the contact form at the bottom of this page.
