    The earliest ‘quality’ pens my parents bought for me were Sheaffer fountain pens – now sadly lost to time! – and I continue to have a soft spot for the brand. Love the idea of this giveaway – and learning more about the history of their pen design and construction!

    It’s a lovely coin – but what nib is that on it? I would have thought the company best known for its inlaid nibs would have wanted to showcase them – as it does on the book!

    What do I love about Sheaffer? Probably the Balances and the flat tops above all. But also the Triumph nib. And I have a Targa which I really hate, as far as the design goes – it doesn’t push my buttons at all – but it just writes so nicely, it is a delight to use; which is, after all, why I collect fountain pens in the first place.

    Sheaffer – a Classic. Being a fan of coins, design, pens, history, and advertizing, this giveaway is right up my alley. To me it is important to remember your past in order to survive into the future. Be proud of your history. Take lessons from your history. I think brands that value and embrace their history are better off for it. Those that abandon their history have a tough road ahead. Entered to Win!

    My grandfather gave a Sheaffer fountain pen to my dad on his 21st birthday which he eventually gave to me on my 21st birthday too. I love using the pen to sign off letters that I’d write to my grandfather (in a different country). I’d love to win the Sheaffer 100 year coin as a memento for my grandfather and I think he’d appreciate the coin a lot! 🙂

    Sheaffer was my first brand of fountain pen – it was a NIB school pen, and I was delighted that I was still able to find cartridges at a big box store. I love that the name is so ubiquitous that you can still obtain their pens in craft stores and that this budget pen (in a medium nib) is on par with many of my more expensive pens. They just make quality, and they have been for a very long time.

    Thanks for the generous giveaway!

    I have three vintage Sheaffer Snorkels and a set of modern Sheaffer calligraphy pens. It would be great to have a book like that so I can get more information about the pens.

    I could put this with my military coin collection. Then when I went to pen shows I could do a coin challenge.

    I’m just getting started in fountain pens and I’d like to collect one of each major brand, I especially want to focus on pens made in the US, which of course requires me to look for vintage. The book would be excellent.

    Interestingly enough, my first fountain pen was a sheaffer. Sheaffer definitely has a soft spot in my heart if anything because of the sentimental value. I’d like to win because I’d love to have a book with pictures of such classic fountain pens.

    I have several new Sheaffer pens but yesterday I found 3 old ones at an estate sale! I’d love the book for more research.

    I have a couple of vintage Sheaffers, but would like to learn more about them. The book would be a great way to do that. And the coin is a lovely keepsake. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I love the quality and like most people I love the feeling that winning gives you, winning at anything can really turn any type of day around. Especially winning a pen/stationary contest for me ( I happen to really be in to writing internals and stationary, etc like I imagine most people that are commenting on this blog post) would make my month for sure.
    Also Pen Chalet is a super rad company, I have only ordered from you once but everything was really in point not to mention the extremely great prices thanks to your jetpens price matching and penaddict podcast discount.

    Sheaffer was my first fountain pen. I found my Imperial 440 on the ground, it must have fallen out of someone’s pocket. It is still with me 15 years later, and it never lets me down. Even after being in a drawer for a week, it starts without fail every time.

    Somewhere I have packed away a pen with the carton character Cathy on it and I believe that it is a Sheaffer-my first!
