Vintage Pens: 3729: Sheaffer: OS Balance Set
As far as we're concerned, the Sheaffer Balance might be the most perfect fountain pen ever made. Elegant, simple and an amazing writer. When the average person thinks of a vintage fountain pen, the stereotype image that most likely comes to mind is that of the Sheaffer Balance. This model is the rarer Over Sized Sheaffer Balance. It has been restored with a new ink sac. The color is amazing, without more than 5% discoloration. No cracks! You'll only find brassing on the ball of the clip. Light wear on the cap and barrel. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm, medium line. The pencil shows a little more wear with scratches on the nose cone and brassing on the ball clip. Twist the tail cap to advance a 1.1mm lead. The lead mechanism retracts, too, but we don't think this lead is engaged in it, so you need to push the lead back in after the twist retraction. We find that the pen is the widest Sheaffer Balance we've ever held, but it only measures a capped length of 13.8cm.

Vintage Pens: 3700: Wahl-Eversharp: Personal Point
Eversharp made a stunner of a pen in the 1930s with its Personal Point line of pens. Focusing on nib customization, these pens originally had nibs that screwed in and out...10 years ahead of the more famous Esterbrook pens and Pelikan pens of today. Dozens of nib sizes and characteristics were available. This standard-size pen has a later model Skyline nib retrofit into the pen. YET, it is still a right-handed OBLIQUE STUB! It is a very small stub width, but it is still nice. We find it writes smoothly, if you're right-handed, with subtle line variation from XF to .5mm wide. No cracks mar the pen, but the cap is definitely darker than the barrel. Still, with that nib, it is a great bargain. Fully restored. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3720: Esterbrook: J-9558
Remember when the phone company likely was the biggest company in town? Check out this gem of an Esterbrook J-model pen that was once "Bell Systems Property." Look closely under the lever of the pen for the old imprint. We've restored it with a new ink sac, and it looks as if some lucky Bell employee had an upgraded steel 9558 nib. It writes a fine line that sings a little for us. (Kindofa squeaky sound but minimal feedback) The pen was clearly heavily used at Bell Systems. It has no cracks but plenty of scratches. You'll find the clip is on tightly but not 100% flush with the side of the cap. A great daily driver and conversation piece. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3698: Waterman: 7 Red Ripple
Modern lovers of vintage pens can't get enough of Waterman and its classic 14k gold nibs. Waterman's #7 pens are large pens that came in a rainbow of colors. The most important color on the pen was the ring on the cap. Each color signified a custom nib characteristic. Our red ripple Waterman's #7 is the Red Ring model. The Red was advertised as a medium point nib with semi-flex characteristics. Our pen has been restored with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel are about as close to mint as you will find. The trim has only 1% or 2% brassing. Click the headline for close-ups. You'll see a little scratch in the lip of the section where the nib fits in it. The nib also has a couple of scratches clustered together on the top tine of the photo. Writes great, as advertised, flexing to about 1.2mm. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3697: Wahl-Eversharp: Personal Point Set
Before Pelikan. Before Esterbrook. Wahl-Eversharp created the first set of interchangeable nibs for a single pen. The Wahl-Eversharp Personal Point pen offered at least 14 different nib sizes. Unlike Esterbrook, these screw-in nibs were only intended for dealers to change so that they didn't have to carry dozens of different model pens with each of the different nib sizes at the height of the Great Depression. Imagine how a 1930s' Wahl-Eversharp executive's head would explode in our era of custom pen rediscovery. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. It comes with a "Manifold" 14k gold nib, which means it is firm to write through carbon paper. It writes a wet. medium-broad line with a hint of feedback. The pencil advances and retracts 1.1mm lead smoothly. Minimal wear, no cracks. Incredible pearl & black color with only minimal discoloration. Pen measures 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3438 Sheaffer #3
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
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: 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.
