This is the Saratoga, another of the snorkel filling fountain pens from Sheaffer. It was made in the USA around 1952 and is finished in Black with a gold filled cap band and clip.
The pen is fitted with a open 14ct gold nib which writes with a super smooth Extra Fine line.
The snorkel filling system was unique to Sheaffer and consisted of a narrow tube that extended out from under the nib. This tube is dipped in the ink bottle and used to draw up the ink into the reservoir. This keeps the nib clean and it was an efficient system that worked very well.
The mechanism on this pen has been fully serviced. The pen is in good condition with very minor scratches and wear marks.
