Vintage Pens: 4815: Waterman: Emblem
Talk about grail pens! This milk-white Waterman Emblem is New Old Stock! No ink inside the cap. No ink in the threads. If it was used, it was used sparingly. Minimal traces of wear. No brassing. We installed a new ink sac and polished out some tarnish on the cap band and clip. There is a teeny-tiny little dimple on the back of the cap band. It is very rare to find these vintage pens in any condition, let alone this nice of a condition. This isn't a pen with a thermometer, just in case we're confused as to the very definition of a doctor's pen. Click the headline for a close up. You'll write a "rigid" fine line with its 14k gold nib. You will feel the paper beneath the tip, but it isn't a scratchy pen. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4816: Sheaffer: Daily Driver
Sheaffer famously made a "transition" pen that paired spare flat-top barrels with Balance caps. The trouble is, unless you have the original receipt for the pen, it is nearly impossible to tell if you have an original pen or a pen-repairman's Frankenpen. We found this Sheaffer pen in this condition from somebody who got this pen in this condition. Yet, they got it about 80 years after it was first made, so we can't guarantee this is a true, original pen. We can confirm it has a working new ink sac. Its barrel is more discolored than its cap. Click the headline to see the nib up close. You will write a firm, extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. Junior sized. 11.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4804: Morrison’s: Overlay
In New York during the Roaring Twenties Morrison's fountain pens were a popular pen about town. This is a gold-filled overlay vintage pen that is fully restored with a new ink sac. The pen is crack-free. There is brassing around the edges. There are a couple mini dents on the flat top of the cap. There also are a couple darkened spots in the plating of the cap. You will enjoy the 14k gold nib with its semi-flex properties. It goes from about a fine line to just over 1mm wide. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4794: Esterbrook: SJ-2556
One of the most popular fountain pens of the 1950s was the Esterbrook J-series line of pens. Required by many high schools and trade schools, these steel-nibbed beauties helped to teach the Baby Boomer generation how to write with an "ink pen." We restored this shorter Esterbrook SJ model with a new ink sac. It is quite possibly a married pen, as the cap is a shade or two darker than the barrel. Its 2556 nib is considered an upgrade nib. You will write a fine line with a little feedback with this nib. The nib has a lot of pock-marked damage around the breather hole, which is clear in the photos. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen also has light to moderate wear from use. The best part about these pens is how easily customized they are. You unscrew the nib to replace it with one of three dozen point sizes! 11.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4780 Sheaffer Lifetime Balance

Vintage Pens: 4780: Sheaffer: Lifetime Balance
Good luck finding a more perfect oversized black-and-pearl than this 1935 Sheaffer Lifetime Balance. There isn't a hint of brown discoloration, and there are no cracks or deep scratches. It is fully restored with a new ink sac. Obviously, no one is perfect, and this--to us--has two nearly insignificant flaws and one big one. A tiny piece of the gold plate chipped off the flat-ball pocket clip. AND, a previous repair person shaved the lip of the cap a little to eliminate a small chip...most likely. The big flaw is this has the wrong section, nib and flat feed, most likely from a late 1920s Lifetime flattop. You will write an insanely dry, extra-fine line with what we suspect was an accountant's nib. It barely writes at all and might need to be broken in a little, IF you want to write with it. However, this pen looks so amazing, we totally understand if it would be for display only. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4776 Sheaffer Oversized Lifetime Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4776: Sheaffer: Oversized Lifetime Balance
If you are looking for an oversized Sheaffer Lifetime Balance pen that is bordering on perfection...you can stop looking. Our shining black beauty is scratchless and crackless. It has a strong imprint. Naturally, it is restored with a new ink sac. It only has two minor flaws. First, a shade of plating missing from the bottom of the pocket clip. Second, the cap band jiggles a little. We don't think the cap band is in danger of coming off; it just wiggles a little. Click the headline for a close-up of the rarish two-tone 14k gold nib over a flat feed. If you like dry, extra-fine lines, you'll love this pen. It is so dry we worry it might have a flow problem, but if you're an extra fine fan, you might already know how to work around that. Otherwise, it is close to museum worthy. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4670 Waterman 52 1/2
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $149.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4670: Waterman: 52 1/2
This ain't your standard FLEXI nib Waterman 52 1/2. Our fully restored vintage pen is for writers who prefer their flexi writing to go from broad to paint brush! You'll write a smooth nearly 1mm line to start, and it readily flexes to 2mm in no time. Sorry, but if you're looking for XF to 2 mm, this ain't the pen for you. We installed a new ink sac, and we are happy to say that there are no cracks. You can see in the photo that the chased black hard rubber has a little chocolate hazing. We aren't sure if the trim is nickel or sterling silver. We can't seem to get the rivet area fully polished and the tarnish looks more like nickel tarnish than silver, but the polished trim looks very silvery. You can still see the chasing and imprint, but the chasing is worn pretty thin. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4685: Sheaffer: Balance 500
Sheaffer Balance pens still look sharp after all these years. We restored this grey straited 500 model with a new ink sac. It writes beautifully with a smooth, firm fine line from its two-tone Feather Touch 14k gold nib. Its ink-viewing window is still remarkably yellow-green without much ambering. Click the headline, and you will see why it is bargain priced. It has some moderate wear AND the lip of the cap seems a little...we don't know, maybe...melted in. It fits on the pen's barrel just fine. No cracks anywhere. Also a little wonky is the streamlined flat clip. Its in tightly but it is a little dented and scratched. You will love it as a daily writer that is ready to work hard for you, but it won't ever make it as a museum piece. 14cm capped.
