Vintage Pens: 2079: Waterman: 3V
Vintage Waterman is famous for its nibs, and this semi-flex nib won't disappoint. We have fully restored this Waterman 3V with a new ink sac. It has a great layered green-and-red design. The tail shows a little krazing, but it feels stable for now. The cap is crack free. The whole pen only shows light wear and strong imprints. The 14k gold nib writes well with semi-flex that goes from extra fine to around .5mm. The capped pen measures 10.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 2078 Parker 61
Filling Mechanism: Capillary
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 2078: Parker: 61
Parker's last great innovation of the golden era of fountain pens was the capillary filler. It was used in the Parker 61, and it was incredibly simple and clean. Unscrew the barrel to reveal a Teflon-coated tube. Dip the tail of the tube in ink and fill the pen. Ink would flow up a special insert. Pull the tube out of ink, and residual ink wasn't supposed to cling to the Teflon. Ours vintage pen is an English made Parker with a 12k-gold plated cap. Really outstanding is a genuine oblique stub nib! The nib is meant for more expert caligraphers, as it has sharper edges if you leave the sweet spot. We flushed the pen to help remove the old ink. This classic writing instrument comes with its original box. The cap and barrel show light wear, EXCEPT there is a 1/4-inch hairline crack in the barrel where it screws to the section. No dents. Strong imprints. Double jewels in good condition. 13.3cm capped.

Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2077: Esterbrook: LJ-2668
Ring in autumn with this fall-inspired copper Esterbrook LJ model fountain pen. The color really stands out as vibrantly as the leaves will soon turn. We restored it with a new ink sac. The steel 2668 nib writes a very smooth fine line. There are no cracks and only light wear on the cap and barrel. Click the headline for a close up of the pen. Look closely at the top of the cap. The only real flaw on this pen is that peculiar bulge. Although there is a little play in the clip, it seems to be on tight. 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2076 Esterbrook J-2968
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $29.99
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: 2075: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Save on New Old Stock pens with this Canadian Sheaffer Craftsman! You can still see the "chalk" mark pricing on the pen. It is in incredible condition, except there is a bit of plating worn from the clip. We restored the pen with a new ink sac and O-ring to ensure its proper operation, if you want to write with it. The 14k gold nib is marked as a medium, but it writes like a very smooth broad nib by modern standards. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2074 Sheaffer Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2074: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Sheaffer moved through about 3 different filling systems on the chassis we are calling the Sheaffer Craftsman. A simple aerodynamic design, on a shortish, utilitarian pen. Some came with a lever filler and others a skinny rod vacuum filler. This one sports a fully restored TouchDown pneumatic filler. The pen has some wear from use, but its one big flaw is a crack in the threads of the barrel. It is small, and we made it air-tight with rubber cement. The two-tone 14k gold "Feather Touch" nib writes a nice fine line. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2073 Sheaffer Lifetime 875
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $59.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2073: Sheaffer: Lifetime 875
Jackpot! Carmine red! Military clip! (Military regulations during WWII didn't allow you to wear a pen that rose above your shirt or jacket pocket. Sheaffer made these pens especially for soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines.) You can fall in love with this Sheaffer Lifetime 875 pretty easily. It was a user and is a little dulled from wear, but there are no cracks or deep scratches. A strong imprint can be found on the barrel. Heavy brassing spoils the cap band a bit and light brassing can be found on the lever. We restored the pen with a brand new ink sac. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes an insanely smooth fine line. Unfortunately, it also has a hairline crack spreading from the "S" in "Made in U.S.A." to the right edge of the nib. Click the headline to see it in a close up. 13cm capped.

We restored this pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. This is a pastel green 1950s Canadian made Sheaffer. Its 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth fine-medium line. No cracks, strong imprint, only light wear. Click the headline for closeups. 13.2cm capped.
