Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3438: Sheaffer: #3
Sheaffer was rocking the pen world in the 1920s with writing instruments such as this Sheaffer #3. Will you like the gold-filled sleeve with an art deco design or the flexi #3 14k gold nib better? Either way the pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No initials engraved, but it has a couple nasty little dents in the cap, which you can see better when you click the headline for a close-up photo. The rest of the pen is nearly minty fresh. Only a couple teeny tiny bits of brassing on the clip and lever. Its nib writes a genuinely flexi...nearly wet noodle...line from fine to 1.5mm. We especially get a kick out of the "Sheaffer-Clip" clip and "Self-Filling" nib. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3419: Esterbrook: SJ-1555 Gregg
It is a pretty safe bet to think this attractive ruby red Esterbrook SJ fountain pen once belonged to a secretary or journalist. Why? The 1555 Gregg nib was designed for practitioners of shorthand via the Gregg method. We restored this "Short J" (SJ) model vintage pen with a new ink sac. The old J-bar spring inside broke at the J, but it was reinstalled and seems to work fine. No cracks. Just general wear from use.

Vintage Pens: 3420: Esterbrook: J-9668
Come see the pen that taught a generation of Americans how to write with an ink pen. Esterbrook pens were the most requested by high schools, business schools and shorthand schools because they were both affordable and easily customized. Esterbrook nibs unscrew and are interchangeable. Plus, the company made more than 3 dozen different point sizes. We restored this classic black Esterbrook J model with a new ink sac. It is the widest sized of the Esterbrook line. Ours clearly has some wear from use. Plus, the tail jewel has some pretty big chips in it, and you can see the clip doesn't rest flush against the cap. (It is on securely, but it spins.) The 9668 nib was an upgrade nib that writes a nice, wet medium line. Some people might find it has a shade of feedback, but isn't bad. In fact, it really won't bother 90% of people who know Esterbrook nibs.
Vintage Pens: 3440 Wahl-Eversharp Doric
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 3440: Wahl-Eversharp: Doric
Among the legendary pens of the hobby's golden era is the Wahl-Eversharp Doric. Our vintage pen is an oversized number that has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It has some light wear, but it is in great condition overall. No cracks, brassing or krazing. It has a strong Eversharp imprint on the cap. The inkfeed is curiously marked "M" and has hand etched "D4001." The large 14k gold nib might be an Executive Skyline replacement. HOWEVER, it has FLEX. The nib goes from extra fine to about 1mm. It isn't a true wet noodle, but it is a little more flexi than a semi-flex. Expect a little drag or feedback but not a ton. 14.1cm.
Vintage Pens: 3436 Relief 2-L
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3436: Relief: 2-L
Joining us from across "The Puddle" is a very handsome Relief 2L. Our vintage pen looks marvelous in its layered blue marbling. It looks like something out of a painting. No cracks, very clean cap and barrel. Only light wear mars the cap and barrel. Heavy brassing mars the pocket clip and lever. The filling system has been restored with a new ink sac. Now comes the fun part: It sports an 14k gold nib with an oblique, stub nib. Definitely for right handers more than lefties, it takes a little getting used to finding its sweet spot, but it writes nicely with a little feedback once it does. Natural line variation of about XF to 1mm. Click the headline for a close-up. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3433 Wahl-Eversharp Deco Band
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $550.00
Vintage Pens: 3433: Wahl-Eversharp: Deco Band
Oversized pens such as this vintage Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Decoband, but when you add in a flexi "Signature" nib, it becomes irresistible. Be the envy of your pen club with this woodgrain, red-hard-rubber giant. Restored with a new ink sac, our vintage pen is a stunner whose cap and barrel crack and major blemish free. Click the headline to see a close-up of the nib. On the bottom-right side of the nib, where it goes into the section, you'll see an odd dent in 14k gold, but it doesn't seem to effect the writing. You'll write with a little feedback, as you flex the nib from fine to roughly 1.5mm wide. There's a deep scratch on the inkfeed under the nib, but nobody spends much time staring at the inkfeed. The lever has a little brassing. Some of the woodgrain black is a little discolored on the cap. Overall, the pen is in great shape. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3432 Sheaffer Ringtop
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 3432: Sheaffer: Ringtop
Today's flappers need a cutting edge writing instrument, and we recommend this Sheaffer Ringtop from the Jazz Age. This vintage pen has a floral print on what appears to be a gold-plated overlay. What appear to be the very elegant script initials "V G S" are on the name plate. A little brassing where the cap snugs against the barrel, and a small dent on the edge of the flat tail piece are the worst of the damage to this otherwise excellent pen. The lever dangles a little when the pen is upside down. It has been restored with a new ink sac. The very early original inkfeed and #2 Sheaffer nib write a wet, medium line smoothly. Its nib also has a little FLEX! 9.7cm capped...including the ringtop.
Vintage Pens: 3431 Sheaffer Half Balance

Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3431: Sheaffer: Half Balance
Behold a hyper-rare site! We are excited to present the cleanest black-and-pearl design we've ever seen on a vintage Sheaffer. There are only a couple spots of light discoloration, whereas most of these pens are brown and black these days. On top of that distinction, this is an authentic Sheaffer Half Balance, where the pen has a Balance cap and a flat-top body. These were actually cataloged by Sheaffer when they came out. Ours is beautiful and crack-free. It has been restored with a working ink sac. Its nib is 14k gold Lifetime model with its original inkfeed. You will write a smooth medium line when writing from a low angle of attack. If you keep the pen more verticle, it gets more feedback and a finer line. Nice big pen with good girth for improved, cramp-free writing. 13.5cm capped.
