Vintage Pens: 2367 Sheaffer Frankenpen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 2367: Sheaffer: Frankenpen
Sheaffer once made a Lifetime fountain pen with a torpedo cap and flattail body. However, we think this is either the work of a clever con man or just somebody trying to make a complete pen from two halves. The barrel and nib are of a 1920s Sheaffer Lifetime Junior-Size. The cap is of a 1930s junior Balance. Together, they make a great pen. We found it this way and restored it with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel each have a fair degree of wear. There is no brassing; nor are there any cracks. The 14k gold nib with original 1920s inkfeed write a very nice, firm medium line. 11.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2366: Sheaffer: Targa
It's been 40 years. Maybe it is time to finally face the fact that Sheaffer Targas are now vintage pens. Cars get vintage car license plates after they are 20 years old. It hurts to face it, though. All whining aside, this is a stunning red Sheaffer Targa. A cross between brick red and fire-engine red, it looks great with gold-plated trim. The only flaw is some corrosion on the very end of the golden tail end piece. We've cleaned it up as best we can, but the rest of the pen is excellent. The pen even comes with a still-working squeeze-bar converter. When it finally blows out, this pen will still take Sheaffer cartridges AND modern Sheaffer converters! The 14k gold inlaid new writes a lovely, wet fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 0511 Waterman C/F
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0511: Waterman: C/F
Waterman heralded the disposable cartridge era of fountain pens with its Waterman C/F (Cartridge/Fill) in the 1950s. Although cartridges were first introduced into pens back in the 1910s with glass and clay cartridges, neither was practical. The Waterman C/F used plastic. We include an original 1950s plastic cartridge in this pen! You can refill it using a syringe. We strongly doubt modern cartridges or converters will fit in this pen. The 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line with some feedback. The pen is pretty beat-up looking. Most of the original gold plating is worn off. Heavy scratching and wear covers all of the plastic surfaces. Basically, this is a good user-grade model with which to experiment and expand your vintage pen collection.

Vintage Pens: 2364 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2364: Parker: 51
Parker 51 pens were named 51s because they were 10 years ahead of their time when released in 1941! This is an actual 1950s Parker 51 that features an original and still working aerometric filler. The burgundy barrel and hood are handsome, but the hood is marred by several deep scratches which are easily spotted in the photo. The steel "lustraloy" cap has lots of light scratches but no dents or other serious flaws. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth medium line. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2363: Wahl-Eversharp: Fountain Pen
With the end of World War II, so came the decline and fall of the Wahl-Eversharp pen company. Unable to match the design genius of earlier eras, the company focused on more simple designs such as this vintage pen. It is still a very good fountain pen, which we have restored with a fresh ink sac. It is just a less exciting design. It was a daily user, and its moderate wear is evident. However, there are no cracks. The 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line with up to 1mm FLEX! Definitely not a wet noodle, but it has flex that can be trained and adapted to you hand for a very reasonable price. 13.8cm capped.

Era: 1940-1949
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2360: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Eversharp Skylines feature great bullet-shaped art deco design from the 1940s. Our's is a junior sized Frankenpen in need of a loving home. We restored it with a fresh ink sac. The original 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth wet, fine line. It is ideal for daily use. The deep burgundy barrel shows moderate wear with a few heavy spots. The blue-pinstriped green cap, has some deep "pits" and moderate wear but no cracks. The cap dome is dark blue. The trim shows moderate brassing. A great writer that you can afford to knock around. 12.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2359 No Name Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2359: No Name: Pen
Three arrows banded together on the pocket clip are the only clue as to the origins of this pen. Unfortunately, that logo isn't jumping out of our memory bank at the moment. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks mar the surface of the cap and barrel, but each has moderate wear plus brassing on the trim. The Waranted nib is 14k gold. A hairline crack darting out from the section is visible when you click the headline font for more photos. The nib has a little flex and can write extra fine to moderate without much training. It feels a shade scratchy to us, but it might not draw much attention if you made it your daily driver. 12.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2356 Mont Blanc Single Leather Pen Holder
Filling Mechanism: You)
Era: 1980-present
Price: $25.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2356: Mont Blanc: Single Leather Pen Holder
There is absolutely nothing vintage about this leather Mont Blanc pen holder, BUT you can put vintage pens in it. Made of a genuine, supple black leather, this single-pen case is large enough to accommodate a Mont Blanc 149. As such, it can also hold many oversized vintage pens. Gently used, this authentic Mont Blanc shows light wear and a little breaking in of the once-stiff leather, but no one will notice as you slide it in and out of a pocket or your bag.
