Vintage Pens: 5766 Hi Writer Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 5766: Hi Writer: Fountain Pen
A third-tier pen with first-tier semi-flex quality is difficult to find. However, our Hi Writer pen from what looks like the 1920s has just that. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. What will dazzle you most is the smooth medium steel nib that gently flexes to about 1mm wide. Click the headline for close-ups. Yeah, the nib looks rough. If we polished it, it would lose all of its gold plating. Otherwise the pen has some minor marks and stains. The pocket clip is and comes out if you pull it out in a Z shape. 12.7cm capped.

Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $69.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 5759: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Sheaffer nibs are among of our favorite nibs ever made. This Sheaffer Lifetime Ringtop has a delightfully smooth 14k gold nib. You will write an extra-fine to fine line with great flow. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. There are no cracks, but it has a little brassing on the trim. The lovely jade green has some discoloration, but it looks pretty good over all. A great vintage pen for looks and use. 12cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5670 Sheaffer Admiral
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 5670: Sheaffer: Admiral
Looking for a bargain on a user-grade vintage pen? Check out our Sheaffer Admiral from the 1940s. Its golden brown striated design remains striking after more than 70 years. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. However, there are some serious cosmetic problems. There is a hairline crack in the threads of the barrel, which we believe we have stabilized. A past repairman in the 1950s or '60s used a pair of pliers to open the pen and really mangled the section grip. The rest of the pen is A-OK. You will write a wet-fine (some might say medium) line with its two-tone 14k gold nib. 12.6 cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5653 National Pen Co. Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5653: National Pen Co.: Set
We just learned that the National Pen Company was really the house brand for the major American retailer Montgomery Ward. Made in Chicago during Prohibition, who knows, maybe this pen and pencil set once belonged to a mobster or G-man. Whoever owned it appears never to have owned it. No brassing, minimal wear. The pen cap and pencil have the same green with a hint of yellow. The pen barrel has a shade or two more of blue in it. We did not resac this pen to help preserve its excellent jade color. Its 14k gold nib is a Warranted nib that writes extra fine to about .5 mm wide. A nice, smooth semi-flex. The pencil is in good working order. Click the headline for close-ups. Pen measures 14.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5651 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5651: Sheaffer: Balance
No vintage pen collection is complete without at least one Sheaffer Balance. It was the quintessential pen of the 1930s. Streamlined and aerodynamic it modernized the classic Sheaffer look. We restored this mid-sized Balance with a new ink sac. This pen was a work horse then and it remains so today. It's got some wear and some textured pitting to the right and below the lever in the photo. No cracks. A little brassing. If you are observant, you'll have seen that there is no white dot on this pen. Yet, it has a two-tone Lifetime nib made of 14k gold. Click the headline for close-ups. Regardless, you will write a very nice, smooth fine line with the firmness to feel the paper beneath your tip without any scratching. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5613 Mabie Todd (Swan) Swallow
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 5613: Mabie Todd (Swan): Swallow
Some vintage pens are just survivors, and that is the defining feature of our Mabie Todd Swallow. It has been through a lot as evidenced by some serious scars and cuts into the pen. You will see a small hole in the top of the cap, too, and it isn't from a tassie. We restored it with a new ink sac all the same. It ain't dead, yet. Click the headline for close-ups. You will write a broad line with its somewhat jankety 14k gold nib. It can be both smooth on some angles and scratchy on others. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5609 Esterbrook SJ
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $59.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 5609: Esterbrook: SJ
Add a minty green zing to your writing this summer with this Esterbrook SJ fountain pen. We restored this vibrant, happy vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks will be found in the pen. It only has some light surface wear from use. You might notice its nib doesn't have a number on it. That is because this replacement nib came toward the end of the line for Esterbrook. Esterbrook got bought out in the late 1950s and the company that bought it wanted to simplify the nibs to just a small handful instead of 3 or 4 dozen. This nib was simply "Medium." And it is. You will write a very smooth line that might lean closer to a fine side of the medium spectrum. SJ means it was the smaller size J-model that is easy to pack for all of your summer adventures. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5606: Esterbrook: SJ-1555
Deeper than your average sapphire blue Esterbrook SJ, our vintage pen looks like the ocean in the moonlight from the deck of a ship. The undulations in the color look like miniature waves in your hand. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. One of the most popular pens of the 1950s, it remains in good working order without any cracks -- just a little wear from use. The worst cosmetic flaw is its black top jewel that looks deformed...possibly at the tip of a cigarette. Click the headline for close-ups. It has a 1555 Gregg nib, which was intended for practitioners of the Gregg shorthand writing method. We find it writes a dry, fine line. 12.1cm capped.
