Pre-Owned Pens: 1797: Conklin: Mark Twain Crescent Limited Edition
The new millennium saw the resurrection of the classic Conklin pen brand. Vintage pen enthusiasts fell in love with revival of crescent-fillers, and modern pen collectors fell in love with a new and trustworthy vintage-style writing instrument. Numbered 012 of only 100, this Conklin Crescent Mark Twain Limited Edition really is a limited edition pen. We love the deep amber marbled celluloid of the cap and barrel. The pen shows light wear on the exterior and a ring around the safety ring from where the pen was rested. The biggest changes are internal. We had the filling system restored with a brand new section nipple reconstruction. We also had a new sac put in the pen. It is great condition now, and the two-tone 14k gold nib is marked medium and writes a wet, smooth medium line. Click the headline to see a scratch on the nib. Complete with original boxes. 13.8cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2251: Conklin: Crescent Mark Twain
Mark Twain was the first celebrity to endorse a major pen brand when he spoke on behalf of the Conklin Crescent. When the venerable brand was revived in the early 2000s, it brought back the Conklin Crescent pen with a tribute to the famed American author. Our pen is an early model with an actual 14k two-tone gold nib! Today most of them are made with a steel nib. Plus, the trim is plated with actual silver. We replaced the ink sac and are proud to vouch for this large pen that comes complete with its boxes and papers. The gold nib writes a reasonably smooth medium line. The whole pen is in near mint condition! 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1267: Conklin: IV
Round out your vintage Conklin collection with this silver-plated Conklin IV pencil. Although it hasn't any lead, you can see the mechanism move up and down when you twist the nose cone. The pencil has an attractive chevron patter. You can see it and some of the wear better when you click the headline photo. There are no dents in the barrel, but the nose cone has some pitting and dings. The plating has some dark patches that don't seem to want to polish up nicely. The imprint on the tail are strong. The blind cap reveals the eroded remains of the hardened eraser. 13.4cm.
