Vintage Pens: 2050: Waterman: 52
Black Chased Hard Rubber Waterman pens are highly coveted these days for their flexi 14k gold nibs. This Waterman 52 has one such nib, but it needs a little work to make it into a wet noodle the way people clamor for. Click the headline. You can see a slight deformity to the nib. It writes a really nice, wet medium line and can flex up to 2mm. However, you're going to need a nib guru better than us to get it back to an extra-fine to 2mm wet noodle. The pen itself is incredible. There is only light and sporadic chocolate hazing, while the imprints are pretty strong. No cracks. We are fairly sure (but not 100%) that the clip and lever box are silver. There is even a trace of the orange ink used to color the "52" in the tail of the pen! The section is a little loose, but securing it tighter might hurt the pen if you are planning to have the nib worked on. 13.5cm capped.

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2049: Sheaffer: Lifetime Rose Glow
One of the rarer colors among Sheaffer pens of the 1930s is called Rose Glow. Unlike a slightly more common but still rare Carmine (red), the Rose Glow is a straited burgundy, pink and grey combination! This junior-size Lifetime Sheaffer is dazzling enough to shine through some obvious scratches and wear when you look close. However, we've polished it to a glossy sheen that hides the blemishes from casual observations. The only thing we couldn't hide was the deeply imprinted "Maida B. Franke." No cracks, minimal brassing. Fully restored with a new ink sac. The original two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with feedback. It isn't so scratchy that you can't write, but you will notice it. Some people love it, others hate it. 12.2cm capped.

Era: 1930-1939

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2047: Sheaffer: Balance
Just as Chevy and Ford have had ardent supporters over the years, in the 1930s and '40s, so did fountain pens. You were either in the Parker or the Sheaffer camp. This Sheaffer Balance was the heart and soul of the Sheaffer line in the '30s. Elegant, professional and extremely functional. Ours was once in heavy rotation, as you can see by the various scratches and dings in the cap and barrel. Fortunately, there are no cracks and only minimal brassing. We restored it with a new ink sac. The original two-tone Feather Touch 14k gold nib writes a smooth, firm fine line. It is nowhere near ready to retire. Standard full size. 13.8cm capped.

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2045: Wahl-Eversharp: 707
Made in either the late 1940s or early 1950s, this Eversharp 707 is technically new old stock and complete with its original sticker. Unfortunately, the cap picked up a few serious scratches along the way. (Click the headline for close-ups of the 3 big scratches on the cap just below and to the left of the clip.) The barrel also shows some wear. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac, and it is ready to finally fulfill its purpose in life writing brilliant letters, notes, journal entries and stories. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a very smooth, wet medium line. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2044 Waterman 94
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2044: Waterman: 94
There is nothing depressing about this Depression-era Waterman 94! Its layered grey marbling with red accents is stunning in nearly perfect condition with a clear, strong imprint. No cracks, minimal wear. We restored it with a fresh new ink sac. The 14k gold nib HAS FLEX. It has a lot of flex going from extra fine to up to 2mm wide. THERE IS A CATCH. It needs some training to "break it in." Age has made it a little reluctant to flex as easily as it used to. It just needs more daily use to limber it up. Its only potential flaw is that the clip might be a teeny-tiny bit sprung, the bottom of it not quite making contact with the cap. 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1931: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Filled Fountain Pen
Wahl made some incredibly handsome pens back in the 1920s. This gold-filled vintage pen is easy on the eyes with no dents or deep scratches. Its pin-striping has only a few little wear spots. We restored it with a new ink sac. No engravings blemish its name plate. Click the headline for close-ups that show a little chipping in the gold-fill around the edge of the section. The 14k gold Eversharp nib writes a nice wet, medium line with a hint of feedback, but it isn't so bad it can't still be a daily driver. 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1985: Sheaffer: Balance Set
Have you ever heard about the harvesting of abalone shells? The pros dive deep into the kelp beds off the California coast. With only a single breath of air in their lungs, they seek out the abalone, hoping to find one on a rock. If they grab it, it has incredible strong attachments that will not give out. However, if the diver simply flicks it sideways with their fingers before the attachments can brace it, it will fall right off the rock into their hands. Imagine the effort it would have taken to harvest enough abalone in the 1930s to create these special Sheaffer Balance pens and pencils. The rainbow translucence of the shells under lacquer is only slightly discolored on the fountain pen and nearly perfect on the still working pencil. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. There are no cracks. The pen has light surface wear and the pencil has a really deep quarter-inch scratch and a gap between the barrel and cap. The pen's original 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth fine line.

Vintage Pens: 1868: Sheaffer: 500
Every writer needs a good, reliable pen to use in the trenches of life, no matter where it takes you. We have one such friend in this vintage pen known as a Sheaffer 500. Fully restored with a fresh ink sac, you can write all day with it. Heavy brassing on the cap band, light brassing on the pocket clip and some wear on the cap and barrel only signify that this was a trusty pen back in the day that is ready for more action now. You can still see through the inkview window, although it is a dark amber. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a fine line pretty well. 13.5cm capped.
