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: 2072: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Looking to try your first fun vintage pen? It will be difficult to find a better deal on a gold-nibbed starter! Sheaffer Craftsman pens offer a great first experience with an easy-to-use pneumatic "TouchDown" filling system. Unscrew the tail cap, pull it out, stick the nib in ink, push the tail tube down and wait a few seconds. Wipe the nib with a tissue, and you're ready to write. 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.

Vintage Pens: 2071: Sheaffer: Balance
Grey and red color combinations were very popular in pens in the 1930s. Our junior size Sheaffer Balance is stunning with red veins in grey marbling. It has a little wear and a couple scratches, but the colors and finish dazzle to the point where you don't notice the blemishes. We restored it with a fresh ink sac. It has a strong imprint, denoting Canadian heritage. There's a little brassing on the clip and cap ring's nickle trim. The inkfeed has a tiny chip taken out of its very end space. Depending angle you write using, it can be a dry extra-fine nib at high angles or a regular fine at low angles of attack. Either way, the original 14k gold nib writes smoothly, but it likely won't be the best writer in your stable. The ink view window has good clarity. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2070 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 2070: Parker: Duofold
"V" most definitely stood for "victory" in 1945 when this Parker Duofold was made. A rarer "victory" nib is what will make this vintage pen really stand out. We have restored the pen with a fresh new diaphragm. The red-and-grey barrel also has some decent clarity to see the ink level inside the pen! Click the headline and you can see close ups of its flaws, too. While in good working order, the back of the cap has two nasty scars running perpendicular to the straiting of the design. NO CRACKS, but lots of other little scratches and marks. Strong imprint. This is a slightly larger size pen. The "V" nib writes a nice fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2069 Parker Duofold Set
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 2069: Parker: Duofold Set
The second generation of Parker Duofolds were art deco beauties. This vacumatic-filling 1941 vintage pen set features a fully restored fountain pen and a still-working pencil. There are a couple little, but deep, scars just to the right of the clip near the top of the cap on the fountain pen, but the rest of the pen is in great shape with only lighter wear from daily use. There is a hairline crack in the lip of the cap that only goes up to the cap bands. You can only find it by using your thumbnail. We restored this pen with a brand new diaphragm. Strong imprint. No brassing on cap bands, but the clip does feature some. The original 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. The pencil shows more wear with heavy brassing on the cap band and clip. It would appear that the pencil saw much more use in the 1940s. Pen is the standard size and measures 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2068 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 2068: Parker: Duofold
At the height of the Great Depression, Parker's flagship Vacumatic pens were too expensive for many people. As such, they resuscitated the recently retired Duofold name for a popular second-tier pen in their line up. It's striped art deco design remained so popular, that it was updated with a vacumatic filler midway through its production run. This standard size second generation Parker Duofold sports a 1941 date code. We restored its filler with a new diaphragm. This green-and-tan pattern seems to be rarer to us than the more common red-and-grey and blue-and-grey models. There are no cracks or deep blemishes, but it has a lot of light surface wear that dulls its luster. The barrel has remarkable see-through clarity. There is light brassing on the cap bands and clip. The original 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. 13.1cm capped.
