Vintage Pens: 2060 Esterbrook SM (?)
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2060: Esterbrook: SM (?)
Although we call this an Esterbrook SM, we are not convinced that is what it is. It really looks like a cross between an SM and M2. Either way, we are reasonably sure it was from the late 1940s or 1950s. The cornflower blue section and barrel have seen heavy use, with plenty of scratches. The cap is in surprisingly good condition with only a few tiny marks on the back top of the pen, opposite the clip. We restored it with a new ink sac. Its steel 9668 nib was considered a top-of-the-line nib upgrade that was advertised as being a medium for "general writing." True to its advertising, it is a very nice medium writer with a hint of feedback but no scratch. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2059: Esterbrook: SJ-1551
Candy-apple red is layered like a freshly licked lollipop on this Esterbrook SJ fountain pen. It has light wear, but there are no cracks or deep scratches. We restored it with a fresh ink sac. The steel nib is a 1551 model, which was advertised as a student nib. This isn't unusual, as most high schools and secretarial schools required these vintage pens. The nib writes a very smooth fine line. The SJ designation means it is the longer, slender version of the pen. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2057 Esterbrook LJ-2668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2057: Esterbrook: LJ-2668
Esterbrook fountain pens taught an entire generation how to write with an ink pen. Babyboomers were likely required by their schools to write with an Esterbrook fountain pen. Inexpensive and easily customized, pens such as this Esterbrook LJ come with an easily changed steel nib to fit any writing style or need. The nibs simply unscrewed from the pen and were replaced for less than a dollar. We restored this pale-green pen with a new ink sac. The pen was a daily user and features some wear, including a few small stains, which you can see at the tail of the pen in the photo. Click the headline for a closer look. The cap is a few shades of green different from the barrel. Possibly married. The steel 2668 nib was advertised as a "general writing" point, which writes a smooth medium when held at the sweet spot angle. No cracks. The clip isn't quite making contact with the barrel, where it slips into your pocket. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2054 Esterbrook Cartridge Pen
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 2054: Esterbrook: Cartridge Pen
By the early 1960s, disposable plastic ink cartridges were all the rage. Esterbrook began creating their own, and this is one of their cartridge-only fountain pens. Sleek and stylish this deep red vintage pen has some light wear but is in good condition. An empty vintage cartridge is in the pen so you can refill it with a syringe to use this pen on a daily basis. Its nib is a steel 2556 that writes a firm extra-fine line with a little feedback. The section has two small cracks where the nib screws into the section. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2006: Parker: Duofold
Streamlined Parker Duofold pencils aren't something that you see every day, with or without a ring top. Ours is NEW OLD STOCK with its original price sticker! The pencil seems to be in perfect working orders, with its 1.1mm lead advancing and retracting with a twist of the tail and barrel. This vintage pencil has a strong, clean imprint and very little wear from having survived nearly 9 decades. You can hear extra leads rattling about inside, but the eraser is shot. 12.7cm.

Vintage Pens: 1868 Sheaffer 500

Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 1868: Sheaffer: 500
Every writer needs a good, reliable pen to use in the trenches of life, no matter where it takes you. We have one such friend in this vintage pen known as a Sheaffer 500. Fully restored with a fresh ink sac, you can write all day with it. Heavy brassing on the cap band, light brassing on the pocket clip and some wear on the cap and barrel only signify that this was a trusty pen back in the day that is ready for more action now. You can still see through the inkview window, although it is a dark amber. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a fine line pretty well. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1981: Pelikan: 100
Vintage Pelikan lovers, your prayers have been answered. Here is a practically mint condition Pelikan 100 from 1932! We are selling it on behalf of a friend who loves and restores Pelikans with the best of them. There are no cracks but a couple little marks from age and use. The ebonite cap topper has a few little wavy spots in the Pelikan imprint just above the clip ring. BUT, the logo on top still has most of its green dye filling! Carefully hidden under the clip is the engraved name of "G. Engstrom." The 14k gold nib is a slightly oblique, italic medium...with FLEX. Not a lot of flex, but enough. It is an incredible nib, as if you don't find the rest of the pen impressive enough. 11.5cm capped.
