This is a Sheaffer Snorkel Crest Black fountain pen ensemble c1952-1959. This new old stock set originally sold for $34.00. The 5 1/2 inch long pen sold seperately for $25.00 in 1954 and the matching pencil was $9.00. Crest pens had Triumph 14 karat two-tone gold nibs with a platinum mask, a gold-filled cap with a repeating pattern of four straight longitudinal engraved lines in a stepped grouping, a gold-filled clip, and a plastic barrel in black, burgundy, pastel gray, pastel blue (or aqua), pastel green, buckskin tan, or fern green. Early examples may have labels calling the pen "Crest Deluxe", likely a holdover from the TM line. This set literally could have been pulled off the shelf yesterday. It has the clip tags, stickers, cellophane bags and original outer box.
