Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 1953: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal Equipoise
Glittering gold swirls its way through the green celluloid of this classic vintage pen. Our Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal is an Equipoise...we think. A rival had a similar pen listed as such, but most other Equipoise pens don't have the black topper with a gold center or a black bottom cap. The rest is pretty spot on. The thicker middle cap band has a diamond cut pattern of diagonal lines. There are no cracks or brassing. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. The original 14k gold nib is marked "Gold Seal Manifold." It writes a buttery smooth fine line on a dip. Aside from some light wear, the only major flaw is some grey taking over the gold in the first half of the barrel of the pen. Click the headline for closeups. 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1952 Wahl-Eversharp Oversized Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1952: Wahl-Eversharp: Oversized Fountain Pen
Oversized. Buttery smooth nib. Flexible nib. Fully restored with a large ink sac. We suspect this Wahl pen is many vintage pen collector's perfect daydream. Yes, there is a small crack in the lip of the cap, which has more discoloration than the barrel. But, write with this huge, handsome devil, and you will forget about all of its imperfections. The original 14k gold nib is a huge size 6. It doesn't have a lot of flex, but it does have some. We mentioned it is a buttery smooth, wet medium writer, right? Wide girth, light weight means hours of writing without cramping. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1949: Parker: 75
Our golden Parker 75 is nearly new old stock. Except for a very thin line where a the cap posted once or twice some time in the past 40 years. This is a French-made vintage pen for Parker. Unique imprints are a tiny "YC" on the cap band and a shield with "PP" divided by a Parker arrow. The pen comes with a modern Parker converter. The 14k gold nib writes a very smooth medium line. The section has plastic, not metal, threads. The top and bottom of the pen have a two-level dish design. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1947 Waterman C/F Set
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 1947: Waterman: C/F Set
Waterman hit the market in 1955 with the first modern-era plastic cartridge pen. It was called the Waterman C/F (Cartridge Fill). This is a complete Waterman C/F pen and pencil set still in its box. The pencil advances lead with a twist of its tail, but it needs pressure to help retract the lead. It features some light wear. The vintage pen's cap and barrel also show wear from use. The most noticeable wear is near the nib where gold-plated trim on either side shows heavy brassing. The original 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth medium line! The only problem is that these pens do not take modern Waterman cartridges or converters. You will have to find an old one that still fits that you can refill fill a syringe. Made in Canada. Pen measures 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1940 Esterbrook J-2668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959

Vintage Pens: 1940: Esterbrook: J-2668
Esterbrook pens taught the Baby Boom generation how to write using an ink pen. Extremely popular for their bright colors and interchangeable nibs, they were required writing instruments by many high schools, shorthand schools and journalism schools. They remain the #1 selling pen on this website! We have fully restored this J-model pen with a new ink sac. The steel 2668 nib was originally advertised as being for "General Writing." We dipped it, and it seems to write a wet medium for us. J-models were the widest pens of the Esterbrook line at the time, which makes them much easier to hold for people with arthritis and troubles with hand cramps. Our grey-green beauty has some light wear, a weak imprint and no cracks. We think it started as a deeper green but faded over the years. The threads covered by the cap are much darker than the cap and barrel. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1938 Parker 51 Demi
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1938: Parker: 51 Demi
Fairly hard to find are these "forest green" Parker 51s. Not as rare as the "plume" models, but you don't see 'em every day. Our Parker 51 Demi is dated 1949, and it is in great working order with its original aerometric filling system and silicon sac. The barrel is in excellent condition. The hood has some scratches near the nib and a ring where the cap snugs against it. The cap is marked "1/10th 12k Gold Filled." It is dent free and in great condition. It is easy to overlook the original 14k gold nib on a rare-color pen, but this was writes a beautifully smooth medium line. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1936: Esterbrook: J-9788
Esterbrook pens taught the Baby Boom generation how to write using an ink pen.

They remain the #1 selling pen on this website! We have fully restored this J-model pen with a new ink sac and straight-from-the-box new 9788 nib.

Make your desk or the registration counter at your bed & breakfast, doctor's office, boutique and many other businesses look great with this vintage Esterbrook 116 desk pen set. It features a shiny blue (box says gray but looks blue to us) bulb-shaped ceramic base with a black felt bottom and a fully restored lever-filling desk pen. The base is in mint condition without any scratches or chips. The fountain pen is a rare robin's egg blue model. Click the headline to see a close up. These are rare because of all the cracking in the original plastics. This one is also cracked, but it seemed very stable as we restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its steel 2668 nib is an upgrade nib that was advertised back in the day as "general writing" nib. We've dipped it and it writes a very smooth medium line for us. Complete with original box, although the box is missing its top.
