Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4082: Conklin: Endura
Entering the world as bronze and black, our Conklin Endura ringtop has discolored to a grey-ish green. We still restored it to a glossy shine after giving it a fresh ink sac. There's only a little brassing on the cap band. Most people will get excited by its 14k gold #3 semi-flex nib! Without pressure it writes a smooth hair-line extra-fine, but you can get it a shade over 1mm with gentle pressure. No cracks, okay imprint. The only thing that concerns us is its lever pin. It might have rusted and gotten weak, but it seems to work fine in our workshop. The neat extra with this pen is that its crescent moon hallmark in the cap is a little cockeyed and not level.

Vintage Pens: 4078: Wasp: The Clipper
You can tell pen collectors pre-Generation X designated this design as "retriculated" and "circuit board" not "Matrix." We think Neo might approve of our Wasp "The Clipper." It is a very futuristic design for the 1940s. Wasp tried to pretend it was an independent brand, but it was really a Sheaffer brand designed for the second-tier market. We restored this pen, and there is nothing second tier about it. It has a new ink sac, and the vintage pen has very little wear. No cracks or noteworthy scratches. It has a little brassing or chipping of the silvery finish on its lever. Strong imprint. And O-M-G! The 14k gold nib writes a super-smooth fine line that is fine and wet. You will love writing with this pen. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4076 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4076: Sheaffer: Balance
An oversized Sheaffer Balance is a must for most vintage pen collectors. We restored this classic pen with a new ink sac, and we are happy to note just how clear green the ink viewing window is. (Normally, this discolor to an amber.) The white dot on the cap became Sheaffer's logo, but at the time it designated the pen came with a lifetime warranty, for the life of the original owner. The cap and barrel look great. Minimal wear and no cracks. The only real flaw is moderate brassing on the cap ring and clip. You will write a very nice, firm extra fine line with the 14k gold nib that features only a hint of feedback. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4075: Sheaffer: Lifetime Telephone Dialer
Way back in the 20th century we had curious inventions known as telephones. They were simple electrical devices that allowed people to talk to each other over long distances. No texting. No videos. No camera. Just talking. To place a call, as it was known, you'd have to spin a ring to connect to a different phone's number. Sheaffer Lifetime Telephone Dialer pens included a special tail to help people spin the ring and dial a number. Definitely on the rarer side of Sheaffer collection, these pens are a real treat. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The jade green celluloid has only a few spots of discoloring and looks amazingly sharp. Click the headline for a close up. 14k gold nib writes a delightfully smooth, wet fine line. There is a little wobble in the nib between the left shoulder and section. Its matching pencil still works! Takes 1.1mm lead. 14.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4074: Sheaffer: Triumph Masterpiece
For any serious Sheaffer collector, this is a grail pen. The Sheaffer Triumph Masterpiece is made of 14k gold and very rare, only made between 1942 and 1945. These introduced the world to the conical nib that would become standard on later Sheaffer pens. We restored ours with a fresh ink sac, and the rest of the pen looks very good. No cracks. No engravings. Yet, as soft as gold is, the top of the cap is a tiny bit flattened, and there's a small dimple to the left of the pocket clip. There are two short single line impressions above and to the left of the clip. The tail area has a couple small dents around where the cap might have posted. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a very firm extra-fine line with a little feedback. A once in a lifetime find. 14cm capped.

Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4073: Sheaffer: Balance Abalone
Glittering abalone shell sets inlaid into the ebonite cap and barrel of our oversized Sheaffer Balance Lifetime. As much a piece of jewelry as it is a functional daily writer, and we are happily surprised that the abalone isn't heavily discolored. Unfortunately, the cap and barrel have some deep scratches and obvious wear. No cracks and fully restored with a new ink sac. You will find brassing on the pocket clip and cap band. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a firm, extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4072: Conklin: Endura
Navy blue and bronze celluloid combine for a very handsome Conklin Endura fountain pen. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for a close-up of the rarer blue in the cap and barrel. We restored it with a new ink sac. In addition to the color scheme, the pen is in markably good condition. Its original yellow accent stripes ring the pen. Minimal brassing is found on the clip and a little more is found on the bottom edge of the cap band, which is engraved "A.L.D." No cracks or deep scratches. Its original 14k gold nib writes a very nice fine line. Although it is a firm nib, technically, with careful effort, you can flex it to 1mm. This is the full-sized model not the oversized model. 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4071: Sheaffer: Balance
How can something so wrong be so right?! One dip of this Sheaffer Lifetime Balance nib in ink and you might think it is the most amazing extra-fine nib with which you've ever written. This nib is very similar to the nib that got us hooked to begin with. Yet, the pen as a few issues. There's hairline crack in the nib sprouting from under the section. The cap and barrel have a little discoloration. Plus, there is an odd texture to the celluloid, as if it has micro pitting and isn't smooth. There's brassing on the cap band and clip. We restored it with a new ink sac, and it is in good working order. No cracks. And, man oh man that nib writes amazingly well. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.4cm capped.
