Vintage Pens: 2088: Parker: 51 Flighter
Let your writing take wing with our Parker 51 Flighter. This rare Parker 51 is the all metal version of the pen with an aerometric filler from the late 1940s. We completely restored this pen by giving it a sonic cleaning to clear the hood and feed of old ink while also installing a new silicon ink sac. The hood and nib are just a shade off from perfect alignment. The cap and barrel show the usual wear rings from where the cap fit on the section and where it was posted on the tail. There is a small dent on the end of the tail from where the pen must have been dropped once. However, there are no other dents or deep scratches, just the usual light wear. The original metal breather tube is still in the pen. The 14k gold nib writes very nice wet medium line. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2086 Parker Parkette Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939

Vintage Pens: 2086: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
Parker's Parkette Deluxe dazzles in what Sheaffer would have called "Marine Green." Marbled layers of green still look sharp in spite of its light wear. Parker rarely used levers to fill its pens, but that is how most of its second tier pens of the Parkette line filled. We restored this one with a new ink sac and a custom made J-bar spring. The gold plating has mostly come off of the steel nib that writes a nice fine line with a hint of feedback. The brown celluloid of the section is almost to darkened to see ink levels in. There are no cracks, but the lip of the cap is a little warped out of place. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2085: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
During the desperate days of the Great Depression Parker needed a second tier pen to compete with all of the cheap-o pen makers popping up and outselling them in 5 and dimes. That is when they came up with the Parkette Deluxe. A stunning design, this red-marbled pen has a 12-sided cap and barrel. The imprint is still readable. We restored this pen with a new ink sac and custom-built J-spring. It might not be as efficient as the original J-spring, but it works. The original J-spring split in half inside the pen long ago. The steel nib writes a surprisingly nice, smooth fine line. No cracks, light wear. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2081 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 2081: Parker: Duofold
Have you ever wanted to try a Parker Vacumatic but balked when you saw the price? This 1941 Parker Duofold might be an excellent first Vacumatic-fill pen for you. Just imagine what it might have seen from its creation just before the U.S. entered World War II. We fully restored this pen with a new diaphragm, and it is in great working order. The original 14k gold nib writes a nice fine-medium line, and it has a tiny bit of flex. The imprint is strong, but the 1 date code is upside-down! The aluminum speedline filler works smoothly. Although the ink-viewing portion of the barrel is darkened from age, you can still see through it a little. No cracks, BUT this poor guy saw a lot of combat in the office...if not on the battlefield. It suffers heavy wear and some deep scratches. The tail is a little pregnant where the diaphragm fits into the barrel. Still, it is a great writer for every day use. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2082 Waterman Sky Writer
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2082: Waterman: Sky Writer
War rationing limited pen companies on their trim options in the 1940s, and many started using silvery metals nickel for their clips and cap bands. This Waterman Sky Writer from Canada features such trim. Unfortunately, it has some significant brassing, but the pen is in good shape and restored with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel have no cracks but show moderate to heavy wear. The real star of the pen is its semi-flex 14k gold nib. Click the headline for a close up. It can write a fine line sideways and it can be encouraged to flex to about a double broad. 10.6cm 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
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $45.00
SOLD!
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: 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.
