Vintage Pens: 3400: Sheaffer: Balance
Green marbling in celluloid looks fantastic in a Sheaffer Balance. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac, and it is ready to be a warrior on your desk. Although it is ready for plenty of action, this classic fountain pen has more than its fair share of use from a lifetime of reliable service. Click the headline for close-ups, and you will see a ton of brassing on the metal trim. You'll also see a lot of wear on the cap and barrel. The cap lip is uneven and shaved down a little in front. Its two-ton 14k gold nib is missing much of its two ton. However the original nib writes a nice, firm extra-fine line with feedback. Great for daily use and travel. 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3403: Esterbrook: J-9556
Requested by more schools than any other pen of the 1950s, Esterbrook was ideal for Baby Boomers how to write with an ink pen. It was also ideal for teaching stenographers, secretaries and journalists shorthand! Colorful, affordable and easily customized...what's not to love?! Our Esterbrook J model fountain pen was the largest size offered by the company. We love its copper color. You won't find a crack on the pen, which we restored with a new ink sac. In fact, you'll barely find any trace of wear. The imprint is strong, and the end jewels are complete. It comes with an upgraded steel 9556 nib. Originally advertised for "fine writing," we find it writes a firm, fine line. Of course, the best part about Esterbrook pens is that all the nibs unscrew for easy, customizable replacements! 12.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3405: Esterbrook: LJ Icicle?
What is it? We aren't sure. We are certain it is an Esterbrook, which is imprinted on the clip and barrel. However, it looks like a LJ...but it also looks like it came after the LJ series was done. It has an icicle-like pattern on cheaper plastic. We restored it with a new ink sac. Cosmetically, it only has light to moderate wear. HOWEVER, the threads on the barrel don't engage the cap. YET, the cap slips on snuggly. On the plus, side you get an upgraded 9555 nib, which was advertised as being for shorthand. It writes a very firm, smooth, extra-fine line. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3404: Esterbrook: SJ-2668
Enjoy the pen that taught an entire generation of Americans how to write with a fountain pen. Esterbrook pens were the #1 requested pens by most high schools and trade schools. This was because the pens were very affordable and easily customized with dozens of nibs for many different jobs. Our minty green Esterbrook SJ was a well loved pen that saw a ton of use. It was a true warrior and companion to its original owner. Just look at the scars of its service. Click the headline to see close-ups of heavy scratches on the section and ringing the barrel and a single pit by the lever filler. This good news is this pen is fully restored with a new ink sac and is in fantastic condition for carrying on a new mission with you or a new pen collector in your life. Its steel upgrade 2668 nib was advertised as being for "general writing." We find it writes medium line with some feedback, as most steel nibs do. No cracks. Complete jewels. 11.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3373: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Sheaffer Lifetime pens just don't quit. We are convinced they will write well until the day it disintegrates from extreme old age...and even then you will be able to find a new pen to stick the nib in and write for eternity. We restored this junior size Sheaffer Lifetime with a new ink sac. It has mild discoloration but heavy brassing on the straight clip and cap band. You'll find a tiny bit of chipping in the lip of the cap, and it has a crack under the left top side of the clip, where it goes into the cap. A little TLC might be required, but the pen is no where close to disintegration. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, firm extra-fine line that just won't quit. It is a bargain and a stunner for the price. 11.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3383: Sheaffer: Triumph Autograph
Sheaffer added a new special feature to its rarer models of the 1940s...a big solid gold band for etching a customers autograph on it. This is the Sheaffer Triumph Autograph in PRISTINE condition. No autograph or other engravings. Minimal wear. It was restored with a fresh ink sac, and the viewer window is still clear enough to see its light green factory freshness. For its era, it is a big pen, too. No skinny-pen-hand-cramping action here. You'll also get a larger, early version of the conical "Triumph" nib in two-tone 14k gold. It writes a firm, fine line. We can see where some people say it has feedback, but it also is well within normal for Sheaffer firm fines. 13.5cm capped.

Traces of the the accent coloring in the rings are still visible. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks and barely any wear mar the beauty of the cap and barrel. Click the headline for close-ups and you'll see that the clip and cap band have about 30% brassing on each. A little scratching can been seen on top of the nib. Its original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write an exceptionally nice, wet, TRUE extra-fine line. People not familiar with extra-fines might think of it as having feedback, but it is pretty smooth for extra-fine aficionados. 13.3cm capped.
