Vintage Pens: 4013 Waterman 452
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $750.00
Vintage Pens: 4013: Waterman: 452
Hand-engraved sterling silver Waterman's fountain pens are true treasures, especially when paired with a FLEXI 14k gold nib that writes extra fine to about 1.25cm. Shading closer to semi-flex, this classic #2 nib isn't a wet noodle. Nevertheless, it is a smooth treat with which to write. We are selling this pen on behalf of the brilliant pen-repair tool designer Stuart Hawkinson, and he calls the engraving on the barrel and cap "floral vine." The sleeves of the cap and barrel are marked sterling and show no dents and minimal wear. There are no initials in the window left on the barrel. The pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. BUT WAIT, there's more! You get the matching pencil that still works, too! It comes loaded with a 1.1mm lead that entends but doesn't necessarily retract with the mechanism that does retract. Our favorite detail is that the pocket clips are also engraved! Pen measures 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4014: Conklin: Glider
Own a piece of a scandal. When the venerable Conklin Pen Co. got bought out and moved to Chicago in 1938, it is rumored to have become a shell company for the mob. A couple of people have made potentially loose connections to that rumor but nothing is concrete. This Conklin Glider was around the cusp of 1940. You see great use of celluloids for the pen like this green one, but their quality control degraded sharply from their earlier days. We hope we have saved this pen, but we aren't sure. The clip, lever and lever wire are severely rusted. We cleaned as much of it up as we could and installed a new ink sac. It has a nice, smooth 14k gold nib that writes a fine line. Unfortunately, we don't know how long the lever wire and lever or clip will hold out. Discounted and sold as is, no returns. Good for first inexpensive experiment into vintage pens or good for parts to repair a better vintage Glider. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3996 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3996: Sheaffer: Balance
It is difficult to find a jade Sheaffer Balance set that isn't mostly discolored, but we think you are going to like this fully restored vintage pen and pencil. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen is two or three thin shades browner than the pencil, but you still see mostly green. Crisp imprint and no cracks. The clip shows brassing on the top, hump and ball. There's a little brassing on the cap band, too. It has a new ink sac. Its 14k gold Lifetime nib writes a very nice extra-fine line with only a little feedback. The pencil is a larger model pencil than we normally see. It looks to be in mint condition with a working refill that still advances and retracts with ease. There's a spare 1.1mm lead under the old, hardened eraser. Pen measures 14.3cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3995: Sheaffer: Milady Balance
As far as rose glow Sheaffers go, this is one of the rose glowiest we've seen. Rotate this Sheaffer Milady Balance set under a strong light and you'll see a great diversity of shadings between dusty pink and an almost burgundy pink, as well as delightful runs of grey in the rare celluloid. The fountain pen sports a new ink sac, and you can still see through the slightly clouded viewing window. No cracks, a spot of brassing on the cap band and just a little bit of wear from use. A nice crisp imprint on the pen and pencil. The pencil has some deeper nicks on the cap, but they are really hard to see unless intentionally looking for them. No brassing or cracks. Plus, the 1.1mm pencil works well, has extra leads and a hardened eraser under the cap. You'll write a fine line with a little feedback AND a little flex with the 14k gold nib. Slender pen measures 12.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3994 Sheaffer 5-30 Combo
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 3994: Sheaffer: 5-30 Combo
Color perfection is almost achieved by this somewhat rare Sheaffer 5-30 Combo. Half fountain pen and half pencil, this is a great, all-purpose writing instrument. The combo writing instrument craze really was going strong in the 1930s and '40s, but Sheaffer mostly stayed out of it. We are glad to report only a small amount of discoloration on the otherwise perfect pearl & black model. It has some light wear but no cracks or serious scratches. The lever seems a little con-caved on one corner. 1 little clamp line on each side of section. A teeny bit of brassing at the end of the pencil cone. The pen is fully restored with a new ink sac, and the pencil is in working order with a lead inside it, as well as an eraser. The 5-30 meant it was a $5 instrument with a 30-year guarantee. You'll write a very smooth extra-fine line with its original 14k gold nib that also has a razor's edge as you write. Almost not quite feedback, just a smooth, sharp point. 15.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3966: Conklin: Endura Senior
Lapis lazuli looks like moonlight glinting off the ocean on this stunning blue Conklin Endura Senior. A classic from Toledo, Ohio, this vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, no brassing...only minimal wear, this pen belongs in a museum. We did not repaint the orange trim rings, and, as far as we know, it is original paint. Its original 14k gold nib writes a very firm, fine line that leans closer to extra fine. Click the headline for a great close-up photo. Its oversized zen makes for easier gripping. A phenomenal pen for use or display. 13.4cm capped.

Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 3893: Sheaffer: Craftsman PARTS
Just getting into vintage pens? Maybe this Sheaffer Craftsman from the 1940s will be a good starter. It has heavy wear on the cap and barrel, but we gave it a nice new ink sac. There is a crack in the top of the threads, which you can see if you click the headline for close-ups. It has a nice extra-fine, two-tone 14k gold nib, a clear section and lever-filling system for harvesting. If you want to break all the rules, you can super glue the section into the barrel and make it a daily driver that you can never again open without breaking. 12.7cm capped.
