Vintage Pens: 3042: Moore: L-95
Moore pens don't often get much discussion on these pages. However, they were one of the big first-tier pen companies on the East Coast before the Depression hit. Based in Boston, Moore Pen Co. actually had a very interesting history. This Moore L-95 fountain pen is oversized length and standard size width. We love the red dot on top of the cap that is very similar to Sheaffer's white dot. Click the headline to see it better. We believe this pen was made in 1927. It has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. There are no cracks or serious blemishes other than a little ring around the tail due to past posting and a little pit visible in the main photo. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a firm fine line. A touch of brassing on the trim. The inside pressure bar mechanism rattles around a little, but it is actually securely attached to the lever. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3032 Waterman 94

Era: 1930-1939
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3032: Waterman: 94
The 1930s saw the rise of beautiful marbled grey designs with red flecks. This Waterman 94 is a full-size fountain pen (not oversized) and an excellent sample of Depression-era pens. No cracks and only light wear with a few little marks and scratches here and there, the vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The imprint on the barrel and tail are very strong. The original 14k gold Waterman #4 nib writes a smooth extra-fine line with a little flex. Not a wet noodle, just a pleasant semi-flex. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. 12.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3026 National Pen Co. Lakeside

Era: 1920-1929

Vintage Pens: 3026: National Pen Co.: Lakeside
Often overlooked are pens by Chicago's own National Pen Company. A serious rival to Parker and Sheaffer in the 1920s, they made beautiful, high-quality fountain pens. Some of their early celluloids are stunningly gorgeous. This is an even earlier pen, the oversized National Lakeside. Made from black hard rubber, it is in excellent condition with minimal chocolate hazing on the barrel, no cracks anywhere and very little wear. There's a little brassing on the lever and pocket clip. The barrel imprint is faded in the middle. Click the headline to see the nib, and you can see old plier marks on the section from a past repairman many decades ago. We installed a new ink sac. The Warranted 14k gold nib is a #8 that writes a fine line with a hint of feedback that "sings" as you write. It writes well enough, in spite of the feedback. Oversized but not too large you can't write with it comfortably. 14cm capped.

No cracks and minimal wear. In the flat of the tail a really cool, swoopy-lookin' "SWR co." is engraved. The clip is tightly affixed to the cap. The imprint is strong. The steel 3558 nib writes a firm but surprisingly smooth extra-fine line. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2895: Esterbrook: Cracked Ice Light Ivory
Esterbrook fans can really geek out on this gorgeous pen and pencil SET! Yep. It is nearly a perfect Esterbrook Cracked Ice Dollar Pen in "light ivory." No actual cracks. It is stunning. Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaws are nearly invisible to the eye. However, you can feel some light scratches and shallow chew marks near the tail. The only discoloration appears to be a little ink staining that got between the inner cap and outer cap. The pencil is in perfect working order with a 1.1mm lead and a hardened eraser under the tail cap. The fountain pen's nib is the older, rarer 3000 series! It is a 3556 Osmiridium Tip that is a little wonky in the photo and scratchy, but it is so rare that it is worth taking to a better nib meister than us. Click the headline for close-ups.

Vintage Pens: 2898: Esterbrook: Deep V-Clip Slender A
So many rarities for one vintage pen! Our Esterbrook Deep V-Clip pen is pretty easy to spot, with that clip which was only made between 1930 and 1935. This is the Slender A model of the pen. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac, but we think you're going to flip your lid for its really rare Art Deco designed 3556 nib! Click the headline for a close up. Any 3000 series nib is really impressive. This one writes a very nice extra-fine line. Extra-fine fans will likely say it is pretty smooth for an extra fine, but there is a hint of feedback if you aren't used to extra fines. Light to moderate wear in places. A really clean imprint. 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2906: LeBoeuf: 75 Unbreakable
Hold on to your hats, Ladies and Gentlemen. A cocobolo finish is even more stunning in real life on this LeBoeuf 75 Unbreakable fountain pen. It is hard to believe this is a vintage pen, let alone an extremely early celluloid pen, given the vibrancy and lack of wear. No cracks. There's a spot of brassing on the lever filler and even less on the clip. The pen has been restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for close-ups. You'll notice a scratch under the 8 on the original 14k gold nib. No cracks in the nib. It writes a very smooth, dry extra-fine line with a tiny bit of flex. The imprint is worn in the center but reads "Unbreakable" on the top line and "Springfield, Mass." on the bottom line. On the flat tail the 75 imprint is very clean. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2916: Wahl-Eversharp: Lowey Symphony
Hard-to-find Lowey caps are always able to put a smile on our faces. The split-level cap design is a space age effect that we love from the post-war era. The Eversharp Symphony is an otherwise nice, basic lever-filling vintage pen. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Showing moderate to heavy wear with scratches in places, it writes a nice wet, fine line with its original 14k gold nib. 14cm capped.
