Vintage Pens: 5130: Sheaffer: Balance Lifetime
Paging Dr. Tonne. Who knows how many lives this pen might have helped save. All those prescriptions written, records maintained, maybe even research papers drafted. We restored this workhorse pen with a new ink sac. As you can see, it is proudly engraved. It might be harder to see in the photo, but the pen has moderate to heavy wear. No cracks in the lip of the cap but a tiny, shallow chip. There might be a tiny crack under the pocket clip, but we aren't sure. Ample brassing on the cap band and pocket clip. Still, this makes for a good daily driver. You will write a complicated mostly smooth, slightly scratchy line with its juicy, medium nib made of two-tone 14k gold. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5127: Esterbrook: SJ-2668
The workhorse of the 1950s, Esterbrook taught America how to write. Seriously. Esterbrook pens were the most requested pens for use by students in high schools, journalism schools, secretarial schools and more. Attractive, affordable and easily personalized with more than 3 dozen different nibs that simply unscrew for simple replacement! This is the shorter and skinner Esterbrook SJ. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Click the headline for close-ups, and you will see its nib is a little stained from past use. You will write a medium line that is likely a little scratchy. No cracks, but there is some wear, scratches and staining from use. 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5126: Esterbrook: Transition
Esterbrook Transition pens are the mostly representative of the joy of manufacturing overruns. Esterbrook made more Dollar Pen barrels than caps and ended up using their new J-model caps for using up the last of the Dollar Pen barrel. This vintage pen is restored with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, there is a crack in the barrel threads. It seemed pretty stable, so we shellacked the section back into the barrel, just to make sure it held well. As such, you get a big bargain on an uncommon pen. Its 2668 nib writes a smooth medium line, when you find the sweet spot, but it gets a little rough outside the sweet spot. The great part about these pens is that the nibs are interchangeable, and there are dozens of different point sizes. Note the three stripes on the cap jewel. 12.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5125: Esterbrook: Transition 1555 Gregg
As the 1940s came to a close, Esterbrook decided to redesign its popular Dollar Pen to be the Esterbrook J-model pen. The trouble was they made way more Esterbrook Dollar Pen barrels than they did caps. As such, they just started selling these pens with a J-model cap. These pens are known as Esterbrook Transition pens. Ours is fully restored with a new ink sac. It has a little wear from use and slight chocolate hazing on the section, but there are no cracks. The steel 1555 Gregg nib is not original to this model, but these pens have interchangeable screw-in nibs. You will see that this nib writes a surprisingly smooth fine line with a touch of feedback. It was made for teaching and using the Gregg handwriting method. 12.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4163: Esterbrook: Esterbrook J Demonstrator
Might this vintage pen be doubly hard to find? Not only is it an Esterbrook J-model Demonstrator, it was made in England! Fully restored with a new ink sac, we aren't sure how many people would actually want to write with this museum-quality pen in their collection. No cracks or scratches. Minimal, if any, wear. Looks just about brand new to us. The ruby-red finish really shines. It comes with a somewhat scratchy 2668 steel nib. However, like all J-model Esterbrooks, you can unscrew the nib and swap it out.

Vintage Pens: 4164: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Model B
If you love Esterbrook rarities, we think we've got a one-of-a-kind pen for you. We've been told this is an Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B with a possibly one-and-only 3-band cap! Better yet, it is in their famous ruby red design that gleams in the sun like a freshly licked lollipop. No cracks! This vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Yet, it isn't quite perfect. Click the headline for close-ups, and you will see a dozen or so bite marks on the tail. There are a couple other little scratches and marks on the cap. Plus, you also can see some scratches where the cap threaded to the barrel. Its steel 2556 a fine-medium line fairly smoothly when you find the sweet spot. It can dig into the paper a little outside of its sweet spot. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5118: Sheaffer: Balance
Good things come in small packages, they say, and we couldn't agree more when it comes to this Sheaffer Balance 875. Carmine is one of the rarer colors of the Balance line. Our vintage pen is free of cracks or significant scratches. There is some wear from use, including some brassing on the clip, lever and cap band, which has an obvious little hill of brassing on the band in the back. It is fully restored with a new ink sac. Nice deep imprint, except for the 875, which is legible but shallow. You can barely see through the ambered ink window. Yet, the star of this pen is its almost buttery smooth extra-fine, two-tone 14k gold nib! Short and slender at 12.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5077: Sheaffer: 41 Autograph
You can't get much closer to perfection on the hard rubber cap and barrel on a rare Sheaffer 41 Autograph model pen than this. Its chasing and imprint are as crisp as the day it was made. Zero chocolate hazing. Its 41 imprint in the flat tail has orange paint or chalk in it, which apparently isn't original. Not a trace of brassing on its extra-wide gold-plated cap band, clip and lever. The ONLY flaw is the teeniest, tiniest little dimple a 25% turn to the left of the clip in the center of the cap band. That's it, and you'll miss it if you don't specifically look for it. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. It has a replacement 14k gold Lifetime nib without the serial number AND an original spear-point inkfeed. You will write a fine line with a little feedback, but we don't think most people will be making such a beautiful specimen a frequent writer. It is an impressive vintage pen, especially in this condition. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.5cm capped.
