Return to Triumph

Crest

Maker: SheafferYou may be looking for a different model of Admiral, depending on vintage; there is a Balance, the Touchdown in fat and Thin Model, or the Snorkel version to consider.    This page refers to the Triumph era version.

The only real difference between the Crest and the Sentinel is that the former has a gold-filled brass cap rather than one made of stainless steel. There were pens above the Crest in the roster, but one begins to look at all-metal bodies and solid gold components.

Production Run: 1942 – 1948.

Cost When New: $17.50 (for modern value, try this calculator).

Size: 13.1 cm long capped, 14.8 cm posted, 11.2 cm uncapped.

Point: 14k gold triumph with platinum mask.

Body: Celluloid until 1947, then Forticel.

Filler: Vacuum, capacity approx. 1.2 ml or lever,  capacity approx. 0.9 ml.
