Vintage Pens: 3196: Sheaffer: Balance
Grey swirls and flakes with red veins was a very distinctly 1930s design. Our Sheaffer Balance is the standard size (neither oversized nor small/junior) exemplar of Depression-era art in industrial design. It'll turn heads. No cracks, a strong imprint and no real scratching. Its only flaw is some significant wear on the cap band. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. Its heart and soul is the size 5 "Feather Touch" two-tone 14k gold nib, which writes an exceptionally smooth extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. A rarer color pattern for Sheaffer. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3178: Esterbrook: SJ-9555
Copper makes for the most attractive color of the Esterbrook SJ series of pens, in our humble opinion. There just aren't that many pens out there in that color. We have fully restored this Esterbrook SJ pen with a fresh ink sac. No cracks, tight clip, complete plastic jewels, clean but weak imprint. Light surface wear is the vintage pen's only problem. Its 9555 nib is considered an upgrade nib designed by the company for shorthand, leading us to believe this pen once belonged to a secretary, stenographer or journalist. The steel nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. If you aren't wild about it, our favorite part about these pens is that the nibs unscrew easily for dozens of different replacement points! 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3177: Esterbrook: J-2556
Bringing it back to the brand that has hooked millions of fountain pen fans through out the country, our Esterbrook J-model pen is a crowd pleaser. It was the pen that helped teach the Baby Boomers how to write with an ink pen in school. Requested frequently by high schools, journalism schools and shorthand classes, the Esterbrook was an affordable pen with an easily customized nib that screws in and out of the pen. Dozens of different models of nibs were created. Ours is a steel 2556 model that was advertized as an upgrade over the 1000 series. This one writes a smooth, wet medium to broad line when you find the sweet spot. (It was advertised as a fine nib...oh well.) We restored this pen with a fresh ink sac. No cracks, but it does have a big scratch near the top of the lever. The pocket clip slides around in a circle, but it won't come off. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3164 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3164: Conklin: Endura
Conklin Endura pens were among the best of the 1920s. Our standard-size vintage pen sports a stunning, shimmering bronze-and-black marbling with yellow-painted rings at either end of the pen. We are pretty sure the yellow is original factory paint. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. The gold-plated trim shows about 3% brassing on the cap band and 10% to 15% brassing on the pocket clip. The imprint is clean and clear. Bite marks mar the tail a bit, and there is some light general wear on the rest of the pen. No cracks, but there is a tiny chip in the lip of the cap. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, wet medium line that sings a little as it writes. 12.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3168: Gold Bond: Fountain Pen
As the 1920s roared along in Chicago, this junior sized Gold Bond fountain pen was born. A handsome black-and-pearl design, it has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Its discoloration is obvious, but there are no cracks and only a little brassing. Its Warranted 14k gold nib is either a size 2 or 3. It writes a nice wet, medium line fairly smoothly. Gold Bond Pens were not related to the foot powder. They were a sub-brand of the National Pen Company, which was based in Chicago. 11cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3157: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Looking for the vintage pen with a little bit something extra? Check out the rare wide band on our Eversharp Skyline. This pen is beautiful, too, in its deep dark blue and red-and-green striped cap. No brassing, no cracks. Its only major flaw is the name "John B Maljan" written on the side of the barrel. You can see it on the bottom of the pen in the photo. It really doesn't diminish from the incredible smooth medium nib with which you write. It is a nice 14k gold nib. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3156: Wahl-Eversharp: 5th Avenue
On the avenue...5th Avenue. It feels a little "Easter Parade-y" up in this description box today with our Eversharp 5th Avenue fountain pen. Fully restored, this was really one of the last major pen designs by Eversharp. It borrows heavily from the immensely popular hooded nib of the Parker 51. This vintage pen has light-to-moderate wear but no cracks or deep scratches. It is a slip-cap pen. The 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line with a little required pressure. The lever is off 90-degrees from the top of the nib. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3150: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal
Stunning is our favorite way to describe the still perfect green on this Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal fountain pen from the late 1920s or early 1930s. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is the senior/oversized model. Discoloration is obvious on this pen, and we show the worst of it in the photo so there are no surprises. No cracks mar the surface of this vintage pen. You can find some brassing on the Greek key design of the cap band and other pieces of trim. Click the headline to see a great close-up of the 14k gold manifold nib. It writes a firm, smooth medium line. 13.1cm capped.
