Vintage Pens: 1261: Parker: 51 Set
Here's a pretty pair of Parker 51s. The rarer cordovan brown really stands out on this vintage pen set with gold-filled caps. The pencil is in near-mint condition. There are no scratches, dents or dings in the cap or barrel. The cap twists easily to extend and retract the lead. The fountain pen has a working diaphragm that was replaced within the past year or so. No imprint on the barrel. The hood and barrel show little ridges where the cap has rested closed. Otherwise there is minimal wear and tear. There is a little dent under where the clip must have snapped into place after multiple shirt pocket removals. Aside from a couple tiny marks, the rest of the cap is clean of indentations. There is some heavy brassing at the base of the back of the cap. The pattern on the cap is straight lines with a blank window for some initials. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1460 Parker 75
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1460: Parker: 75
Parker 75 fountain pens were basically the last luxury mainline writing instruments for the company of the vintage pen era. The company couldn't have gone out on a classier note. This sterling silver model has no dents or significant scratches. The golden trim is worn off a little on the arrow feathers of the clip and on the stacked "dishes" of the end caps. Each end cap is a golden rim with a silver dish center variety. The section has a steel collar with hash marks that help the user to better align and adjust the nib to fit their hand. The original 14k gold nib is marked "M" on the inkfeed, but it writes a smooth FINE. The cap secures to section well enough, but it isn't the tightest fit. Be careful with it in a pocket or brief case. It does not include a converter, but a modern Parker converter still fits. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1267 Conklin IV
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $45.00
Vintage Pens: 1267: Conklin: IV
Round out your vintage Conklin collection with this silver-plated Conklin IV pencil. Although it hasn't any lead, you can see the mechanism move up and down when you twist the nose cone. The pencil has an attractive chevron patter. You can see it and some of the wear better when you click the headline photo. There are no dents in the barrel, but the nose cone has some pitting and dings. The plating has some dark patches that don't seem to want to polish up nicely. The imprint on the tail are strong. The blind cap reveals the eroded remains of the hardened eraser. 13.4cm.

Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $124.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1248: Sheaffer: TM-Triumph
All engravings aside, this rare Sheaffer Touchdown TM Triumph has been one of our favorite finds of late. It looks like it did when it left the store more than 60 years ago. We replaced the ink sac and O-ring. The clip is on tight. There is no wear on the gold-filled pen. It is engraved on the barrel with the name of "Louis Schaaf." The cap is engraved "10 Years / Tension Env Corp". The two-tone conical Triumph nib is 14k gold and writes a firm fine line. Click the headline font to see a close up. A small patch of gold shines through the palladium plate on the bottom tine of the photo. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1273: Parker: Duofold
Relive the decadence of wealthy folks in the early 1930s with style, by writing with this incredible red marbled streamline Senior Parker Duofold. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is great for use or collecting. The pen clearly has some scratches, brassing and wear from years of loyal use, but it also has white in the imprint! The blind cap is hard rubber and possibly a replacement, as the cap's top appears to be made of Parker's early plastics. It has a monster 14k gold Duofold nib and a Vacumatic inkfeed. The nib writes a firm fine line. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1298 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1298: Parker: Duofold
BLUE ON BLUE! It is the rarest of the color patterns for the Parker Duofold line, as it was only made between 1929 and 1930. Our Parker Lady Duofold is even rarer as it has a wide gold cap band! It has a little brassing, but it is in good overall condition...if you don't mind G.P. Hall engraved on it in beautiful script letters. Click the headline font for a better look. We overlit the blue-on-blue just so you could better see its consistency on the cap and barrel. The vintage pen is fully restored to working order. There are a few drawbacks: chocolate hazing on the cap top, hazing and heavy scarring on the section from a previous repairman, brassing on the ball of the clip and a scarred button. There are no cracks. The original Christmas Tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a buttery smooth fine line with a little FLEX! 11.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1262 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $249.99  Was: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 1262: Parker: 51
Few 1940s pens are coveted as much as the double-jewel Parker 51. We up the wow factor on our vintage pen by including a rare wavy-line gold-fill cap! The vacumatic filling unit has been restored with a new diaphragm. The 1948 imprint is strong on the barrel. The hood and blind cap are definitely a shade or two lighter than the barrel. Click the headline font and you can see two dents in the 14k gold fill cap. The cap has minimal scratching or other wear. The 14k gold nib writes a stiff fine line. We loosened it up and got it flowing more smoothly, but it would benefit from more regular use with a little tine loosening help from time to time. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1277 Sheaffer Oversized Hard Rubber
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $129.99  Was: $159.99
Vintage Pens: 1277: Sheaffer: Oversized Hard Rubber
It is rare to see a Sheaffer oversized flattop in hard rubber these days. Ours is a big, handsome vintage pen. The cap has stronger pinstriping than the more worn barrel of the pen. However, you can still see most of the pinstripes and imprint. The cap has a small and seemingly stable crack in the lip and a little brassing on the straight clip. The barrel has no cracks, just a little age spot that is no bigger than a small drop of water. No white dot, but it has a "Lifetime" nib that is 14k gold and writes a firm extra-fine line. The inkfeed seems to be an early Balance model replacement. This Sheaffer was restored with a new ink sac, and the section seems to have a micron of play. 13.5cm capped.
