Vintage Pens: 2089: No Name Fountain Pen
Bright green, white and yellow stripes make this classic no name brand fountain pen look like something Dick Van Dyke might have written with in "Mary Poppins." It's a cheeky pen with a lot of life left in it. We replaced the ink sac. Its Iridium Tipped nib writes a very firm fine line. We suspect that this nib is a replacement from long ago. The cap and barrel have light wear but no cracks or serious blemishes. The clip seems to be on strong and tight. You can see the lever ring through the plastic, but every thing seems to be working well. It is a nice fat pen, which makes it easier to grip for longer periods without cramping your hand. 11.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2076: Esterbrook: J-2968
Save big on a rare Canadian Esterbrook J-model fountain pen if you don't mind some heavy damage to the black tail jewel. We've restored this smokey blue pen with a new ink sac. It has no cracks but some wear on the cap and barrel. The clip isn't flush with the side of the cap, as you can see in the photo. Click the headline font for close ups. The steel 2968 nib was originally advertised as a broad nib. This one writes more of a medium, but you have to find the sweet spot, which cants a bit to the left, making us wonder if this was the pen of a lefty. These nibs are interchangeable and screw in and out, if you have an Esterbrook nib you want to use. The imprint is faded, but you can still make out the "Made in Canada." 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2060 Esterbrook SM (?)
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2060: Esterbrook: SM (?)
Although we call this an Esterbrook SM, we are not convinced that is what it is. It really looks like a cross between an SM and M2. Either way, we are reasonably sure it was from the late 1940s or 1950s. The cornflower blue section and barrel have seen heavy use, with plenty of scratches. The cap is in surprisingly good condition with only a few tiny marks on the back top of the pen, opposite the clip. We restored it with a new ink sac. Its steel 9668 nib was considered a top-of-the-line nib upgrade that was advertised as being a medium for "general writing." True to its advertising, it is a very nice medium writer with a hint of feedback but no scratch. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2057: Esterbrook: LJ-2668
Esterbrook fountain pens taught an entire generation how to write with an ink pen. Babyboomers were likely required by their schools to write with an Esterbrook fountain pen. Inexpensive and easily customized, pens such as this Esterbrook LJ come with an easily changed steel nib to fit any writing style or need. The nibs simply unscrewed from the pen and were replaced for less than a dollar. We restored this pale-green pen with a new ink sac. The pen was a daily user and features some wear, including a few small stains, which you can see at the tail of the pen in the photo. Click the headline for a closer look. The cap is a few shades of green different from the barrel. Possibly married. The steel 2668 nib was advertised as a "general writing" point, which writes a smooth medium when held at the sweet spot angle. No cracks. The clip isn't quite making contact with the barrel, where it slips into your pocket. 11.9cm capped.

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.

Polish took out the worst of the chocolate hazing. There are remarkably few scratches or marks of wear. No cracks! The imprint is strong, and it lists the pen as made in Canada.

Vintage Pens: 1025: Morrison’s: Black Beauty
Morrison's fountain pens were a 2nd tier contender out of New York. Its vintage pen model "Black Beauty," photographed here, is clearly a nod to the famous novel, as there is a horse's head and neck engraved on the barrel in the logo. This pen would become known as the Patriot during World War II, but these 1930s models were made of black hard rubber, given golden trim accents and a steel nib. This model, has its original gold-plated steel nib! 90% or more of the plating is gone, but you can still see it in the stamped engraving. It writes a nice fine line without any pressure, but with pressure it gets a tad scratchy. We replaced the ink sac and the J-bar with a new, hand-fashioned brass one made in our shop. As the new J-bar doesn't put as much pressure against the lever filler, the lever is a little loose. No cracks, some chocolate hazing. The top of the cap has a great art nouveau topper in a deep, dark, yellowy-orange. 13.2cm capped.
