Vintage Pens: 4580: Esterbrook: J-1555 Gregg
It is amazing to us how the shades of green varied so much in Esterbrook J-model pens such as this one. There can be no doubting this is a lighter yellow-green. Overall, it is in great shape. No cracks or deep scratches--just light wear from use. It sports a still-fresh original Esterbrook-marked ink sac! Works great. The real surprise treat with this vintage pen is its surprisingly smooth extra-fine steel nib made for the Gregg writing method! Often these nibs are quite scratchy, but this one writes very well. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4577: Esterbrook: Desk Pen
Dress up your desk with one of the top-selling pens of the 1950s, an Esterbrook Desk Pen. This is essentially an Esterbrook J-model pen with an 8-ball-esque holder. We don't think this pen has every been used. It has a still factory-fresh original Esterbrook-marked ink sac. We filled the pen with water, and there was no color when we emptied it. The pen shows some light wear. Its base only has wear around the steel accent ring. The original black felt is on the bottom of the base reading "Esterbrook / Desk Set / No. 112 / Made in U.S.A." Its 1550 nib is like writing with the corner of a razor blade. It is extra fine and it digs into the paper. Luckily these nibs unscrew and are very interchangeable. International shipping might cost extra to account for the size and weight.

Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4574: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Sheaffer Lifetime flat tops are such nice daily writers. This pen isn't much more than that. Fully restored, it works well but it shows plenty of wear on the cap and barrel. There is brassing on the trim, and the clip is a little loose. It has an authentic Sheaffer section and nib assembly, but it isn't the correct one for this pen. Its 14k gold nib writes a medium line with a little feedback. A great daily writer. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4570: Esterbrook: SJ-1550 N.O.S.
Teaching America how to write with an ink pen in the 1950s, Esterbrook SJ-models such as this New Old Stock piece were among the most requested by teachers in high schools and shorthand schools. Easily customized with more than 3 dozen nibs to suit many individual tasks, these pens were very popular. Our set comes with an still stickered fountain pen that we restored with a new ink sac. This vintage pen is in mint condition...and a minty green color. It comes with a still-stickered NOS TTJ pencil to match. The pencil appears to work but is missing its .9mm leads and eraser. We think the missing eraser might explain why the clicker part is sunken into the pencil. You will write a whisper-thin extra-fine line with the pens original 1550 steel nib that has a little feedback.

Vintage Pens: 4545: Esterbrook: Transition
As Esterbrook moved from Dollar Pens to J-model pen, it found it had more Dollar Pen barrels than caps. As such, they began putting the new J-model cap to the Dollar Pen barrels until they ran out of barrels. These late 1940s pens are known as Esterbrook Transition pens. Our minty green vintage pen has no cracks and minimal wear. We restored it with a new ink sac. Its greatest feature is the steel 2668 nib. It writes a surprisingly smooth fine-medium line. 12.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4510: Morrison’s: Oversized Set
Looking like it just came out of the Morrison's factory, this vintage pen is a breath-taking beauty. Gleaming in the light, this vintage pen and pencil look absolutely flawless.

You will write a semi-flex line smoothly from fine to a shade over 1mm wide. More amazingly, this pen set comes with its original box and papers.

Vintage Pens: 4512 Sheaffer Univer

Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4512: Sheaffer: Univer
Something's not quite right here. It looks like a senior flattop Sheaffer Lifetime, but.... It isn't, but it is. Sheaffer wanted to win at every market point for fountain pen and created "sub brands" such as Univer to sell their pens to a cheaper, second-tier pen-buying crowd. Click the headline for close-ups. Note the "Univer" on the same hump clip as a Sheaffer. Note also the style of the lever. ESPECIALLY note the perfection of the pearl and black celluloid! There are only hints of brown discoloration in a limited few locations. Fully restored with a fresh ink sac! Ironically, it is a smaller 14k gold than on a Sheaffer, but it is a more desirable semi-flex nib with a little feedback. One last cool point that you can see: Instead of a white dot on top of the cap, there is a black dot! Museum worthy. 13.5cm capped.
