Vintage Pens: 5442: Esterbrook: M2
This Esterbrook M2 is still stickered, though we think it might have been used once or twice. In any event, it is in good working (unrestored) order. We aren't sure what to call the color. It is a pale green that might pass for grey in some lights. Or maybe it was grey and looks green in some lights? It fills just like a Parker 51 aerometric filler. This one comes with a steel 1555 Gregg nib, intended for use by practitioners of the Gregg shorthand method. You'll feel some feedback as most 1000-series Esterbrook nibs have. No cracks. Some sticker residue all over the cap. Light surface wear. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5441: Esterbrook: M2
Riding the success of the Esterbrook J-model pen, Esterbrook M2 pens updated the design and added a Parker 51-style aerometric filler! Our pen is still in good working order and unrestored. While we don't think the pen was used much, it does sport some wear. Luckily, there are no cracks. You will write a fairly smooth fine line with its steel 2556 nib. 13.4cm capped.

Parker VP meant Very Personal. The revolutionary developments for this pen included an ergonomic grip for the fountain pen and a nib and feed that could be rotated to better accommodate for the grip and getting the nib to write from any angle. These are rarer pens, as they only made VPs for a couple years. It led to the monumental success of the Parker 75. This teal colored vintage pen has a major problem in its barrel. Click the headline for a close-up to see the 1.5cm crack in the barrel where it threads into the section. Basically, the crack is bad and makes the pen unstable to write with...without making the crack worse. This is a shame, as the aerometric filler unit is in great condition. In most VPs, this is the rare part that is whole. Its 14k gold nib writes a very smooth broad line. 13.8cm capped.

Parker VP pens heralded many great innovations in their short production run. Without these pens, the Parker 75 would never have been the mega hit it became. Our favorite innovation is the adjustable nib. You can carefully pinch the nib and turn it to the left or right to better suit how your hand grips its ergonomic section. Click the headline for close-ups of the pen and nib. Our vintage pen is in good working order. It comes with an original aerometric filler with the see-though window. Many of these are broken in other pens, but our's is still intact! There are cracks in the cap or barrel, just some light to moderate wear from use. The only dent is under the arrow clip. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine line with a little feedback. 13.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3877: Parker: 51
Amber jewels are some of our favorite rare traits in Parker 51 pens. Our Parker 51 set features a burgundy fountain pen, a 1/10 12k gold filled cap and an amber jewel on top. Click the headline for a close-up of the jewel. This is a great aerometric filler with minimal wear on the hood and barrel. A couple of dents were pushed out of the cap, which looks really nice. It sports pinstripes that angle into steep mountain peaks. Its original 14k gold nib writes a dry, fine line with a little feedback. The mechanical, click pencil matches almost perfectly, except it has a grey jewel, and a little ding on the back of the cap. You click the back cap to advance a .9mm lead. It works great and comes with a hardened eraser and extra leads. Somebody did write in asking if the FP jewel was a "dead" jewel instead of an amber one. I'm not sure I'd know the difference, but this one is decidedly more yellow/orange than standard grey/pearl versions we have here.
