Vintage Pens: 1949 Parker 75
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $99.99
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: 1924 Sheaffer Valiant Admiral
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $85.00
Vintage Pens: 1924: Sheaffer: Valiant Admiral
Here's a riddle wrapped inside a mystery. This Sheaffer Snorkel is giving us fits. It has an Valiant cap that matches the burgundy Admiral body, which has the most buttery smooth 14k medium (M2) nib. Only Sheaffer Admirals had open, gold monotone nibs. Normally, we'd say it is a married set, BUT the imprint is a little off, too. "W.A. Sheaffer Pen Co. / Fort Madison, Iowa, URSA / Made in USA." Did you notice the out-of-place "R"? It is actually larger than the USA font, falling between and on top of the "U.S". We don't know if that gives any significance to the pen, but you sure don't see many typos like that in the imprint. We restored the seals and gaskets, and this pen is writing and filling like new. No cracks, only light wear. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1890 Waterman Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 1890: Waterman: Desk Pen
Everyone's got an empty base with no pen, but we've got the rare Waterman Desk Pen with no base! Restored with a new ink sac, this Waterman desk pen features a black hard rubber taper and exceptionally large section. The barrel is a black and pearl with some discoloration. Polish took out the worst of the chocolate hazing. There are remarkably few scratches or marks of wear. No cracks! The imprint is strong, and it lists the pen as made in Canada. The 14k gold nib is marked "Med. Rigid." It is definitely rigid, and more of a fine to fine-medium. Click the headline to see more. 20cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1032 Penol Ambassador Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $144.99
Vintage Pens: 1032: Penol: Ambassador Deluxe
Penol was created by Christian Olsen who helped develop Parker pens in Denmark. This Penol Ambassador Senior was the largest of the line, which was sold during the 1940s. It uses a button-filler just like the Duofold. You can see a strong Penol imprint on the barrel, but the "Ambassador" is a bit faded. Light wear adds character to the pen, but there are no chips, cracks or dents. We polished up the cap bands, but there is heavy brassing, with more on the slightly loose clip. The jewel is a little off kilter, but the blue ring of enamel surrounding it is still intact. We are selling this pen for a friend and aren't sure when it was last sac'ed, but it fills easily without any problems. The original Penol Deluxe nib writes a smooth fine line. If you click the headline you can see it isn't marked as gold, and the stamped areas seem to show steel...which isn't surprising given these pens were first made during Nazi occupation. A unique piece for your collection. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0570 No Name Pencil
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $25.00
Vintage Pens: 0570: No Name: Pencil
Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses...or in our case, appreciate a damned handsome pencil. This lapis blue pencil likely came from the late 1920s or early 1930s. The two golden bands and golden nose cone contrast perfectly with the blue. It has wear from use but no cracks. The lead spindle moves up and down with ease, although there is no lead in it. It is just a pretty little ringtop pencil we thought someone might want to give a good home. 10.2cm.
Vintage Pens: 1635 Parker Duofold Junior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1635: Parker: Duofold Junior
Parker Duofolds are iconic vintage pens that, in many ways, really got people addicted to pens. This is the streamlined junior size jade-green model. The cap remains a beautiful green, but the barrel is heavily discolored. The cap has no cracks, but the gold trim has heavy brassing. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The 14k gold nib is a 1940s Vacumatic replacement, as is the inkfeed. The nib writes a fine line with a little feedback at some angles. 11.4cm capped.
