Vintage Pens: 1866 Sheaffer 3-25 Orange
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1866: Sheaffer: 3-25 Orange
We get Parker "Big Reds" by the gross, but this is our first orange Sheaffer from the 1920s! A Sheaffer 3-25, the model number designates that it was a $3 pen with a 25-year warrantee. It is a really handsome slender, junior-size vintage pen. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac. The imprint is legible but faded in parts. The black threads were a factory repair in the 1920s or '30s. The orange-colored material proved to be a little fragile, and they'd replace broken orange thread pieces with spliced in black ones. There are two teeny hairline cracks that are very short sprouting from the place where the orange and black meet. There are a couple of hairline cracks in the lip of the cap, too, but all the cracks seem stable, as long as you don't post the cap. There is heavy brassing in the back of the cap band and a little on the ball of the pocket clip. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a firm fine line. 10.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1841: Moore: L-94 Major Pen
Don't settle for LESS. Get an oversized MOORE L-94 Major Pen! This vintage pen from Boston is a hard-rubber classic without any chocolate hazing. It has a pinstriping design with some wear but NO CRACKS. It has a maroon/burgundy cap topper that looks a little chewed. The imprint is still legible but a little faded. Minimal brassing. The clip is a little sprung. We restored this pen with a fresh ink sac. The huge 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line. The section has a tiny bit of play when you grip it. 13.7cm capped.

Brighten any office or business reception desk with this teal Esterbrook 116 desk pen set. It comes complete with a new-old-stock Esterbrook fountain pen.

Vintage Pens: 1782 Wearever Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 1782: Wearever: Fountain Pen
Wearever spent several decades as the leading pen maker in the U.S., at least by volume. As the cheapest mass-distributed pens, they sold tons. When the major brands began experimenting with cartridge pens, Wearever dove in. This vintage pen was one the company's early cartridge pens. More impressively, it comes with a small stash of unopened (and completely dried out) cartridges. The nib and its hood are vaguely reminiscent of the ones Sheaffer made for Sears. This steel nib writes a dry, fine line. We don't know if it will work by refilling the old cartridge, although we did give the nib section a sonic cleaning. The pen shows plenty of wear, but it is a nice novelty piece with its cartridges. 13.5cm 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
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.
Vintage Pens: 1732 Sheaffer PFM V
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 1732: Sheaffer: PFM V
Few Sheaffer pens are as desired as much as the Sheaffer PFM series. Ours is a Sheaffer PFM V. This is the pinnacle of the PFM (Pen for Men) line, as it has a gold-plated cap and tail piece. Ours is in very good to excellent condition. You can see a little wear on the cap and barrel, but there are no egregious dents,cracks or deep scratches. The metal surfaces have light surface scratches from careful daily use. The snorkel filling system is in great working condition. We don't know when it was last restored, but the pen works perfectly. The inlaid 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. It is very firm but very reasonable with which to write. There can be a little feedback at some angles, but nothing extra-fine lovers haven't come to expect. The wide body is so nice for gripping without cramping. 13.5cm capped.
