This is a nice example of the Imperial Propelling Pencil made by Sheaffer. It dates from the mid 50's and was made in the USA. The pencil is finished in Blue with a deep gold filled cap band. The Valiant was one of the Sheaffer Snorkel filling pens and this is the matching pencil.
The pencil uses standard 0.9mm leads which are still readily available, the original eraser is still intact but it has gone a little hard.
The pencil is in good condition with only light wear marks and scratches.
We are very lucky here at Vintage Fountain Pens Ltd as we are able to continue to run the business from home. However we are taking every precaution to ensure that we all remain safe, all envelopes are new and come from sealed packaging, all pens and accessories are kept in sealed cupboards until required and all work areas are disinfected on a daily basis. We are still taking in repairs and, as long as the Post Office is open, we are able to turn them round very quickly. Let us hope that we get on top of this virus very quickly and we can all get back to normal. Thank you for your continued support.
