Vintage Pens: 1866: Sheaffer: 3-25 Orange
We get Parker "Big Reds" by the gross, but this is our first orange Sheaffer from the 1920s! A Sheaffer 3-25, the model number designates that it was a $3 pen with a 25-year warrantee. It is a really handsome slender, junior-size vintage pen. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac. The imprint is legible but faded in parts. The black threads were a factory repair in the 1920s or '30s. The orange-colored material proved to be a little fragile, and they'd replace broken orange thread pieces with spliced in black ones. There are two teeny hairline cracks that are very short sprouting from the place where the orange and black meet. There are a couple of hairline cracks in the lip of the cap, too, but all the cracks seem stable, as long as you don't post the cap. There is heavy brassing in the back of the cap band and a little on the ball of the pocket clip. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a firm fine line. 10.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1025 Morrison’s Black Beauty
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939

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.

Vintage Pens: 1017: Rexall: Monogram
The Rexall Drug Store chain got in on the pen making business for a while, and this Rexall Monogram oversized fountain pen is the perfect example. As thick as a cigar and borrowing a bit of the pearl and black designs of Sheaffer and Parker, it is a handsome curio for any pen collection. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. There are no cracks, but there are plenty of little nicks and scratches. Brassing effects the clip a little and the cap rings. The clip also is a little loose. The 14k gold "Forever 6" nib appears to be original and writes a nice medium line with a little drag. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1277: Sheaffer: Oversized Hard Rubber
It is rare to see a Sheaffer oversized flattop in hard rubber these days. Ours is a big, handsome vintage pen. The cap has stronger pinstriping than the more worn barrel of the pen. However, you can still see most of the pinstripes and imprint. The cap has a small and seemingly stable crack in the lip and a little brassing on the straight clip. The barrel has no cracks, just a little age spot that is no bigger than a small drop of water. No white dot, but it has a "Lifetime" nib that is 14k gold and writes a firm extra-fine line. The inkfeed seems to be an early Balance model replacement. This Sheaffer was restored with a new ink sac, and the section seems to have a micron of play. 13.5cm capped.
