Perhaps you are all about that base but lack the proper desk pen. Hopefully, we can help with this Sheaffer Lifetime fountain pen from the late 1920s or early 1930s. We restored it with a new ink sac. Click the headline to see close-ups. If the focus on the pen looks a little soft, that is actually just how the pen looks. It has a lot of light wear that seems to have effected its luster. We really like the two-tone 14k gold nib's look. It writes a dry, extra-fine line with a little feedback. 20.6cm with taper.

Vintage Pens: 0502: Sheaffer: 46 Special
Brighten your desk with this jade green Sheaffer 46 Special desk pen set. We restored and used this pen for years, but now it is time to find it a new home. Aesthetically, the jade green is spectacular with a little light brown discoloration at the ends of the pen. Click the headline for a beautiful shot of its 14k gold 46 Special nib. It writes a very smooth fine line, but some people who like Japanese nibs might think it is closer to medium. The pen and taper only have light wear. Its onyx base is chip-free. There are a couple light scuffs on the black trumpet. The pen is a tad loose in the trumpet, but it is a nice looking set together. Click the headline for close-ups. International shipping might cost extra due to the size and weight of the desk base. Pen measures 18.7cm.

Vintage Pens: 4655: Esterbrook: Transition
Let summer linger with the fresh mint green of this Esterbrook Transition pen. Dancing in the light, it is a color you can't help but love. We restored it with a new ink sac. The "Transition" means that the pen was sold by Esterbrook this way with a Dollar Pen barrel and J-model cap to use up the last of the Dollar Pen parts. The cap is great with a 3-line black-plastic jewel. No cracks and light wear. Its J-pressure bar appears to be loose inside the pen and yet still works well. You will write a firm extra-fine line with a little feedback using its upgraded 9550 nib. If you want to dive deeper into Esterbrook, it made about 3 dozen different interchangeable nibs that screw in and out. As such one pen can have 36 different point sizes. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4654: Esterbrook: Transition
Unique Esterbrooks are especially fun pens. We hope you get a big kick out of this Esterbrook Transition fountain pen for both its history and its nib. In the late 1940s when Esterbrook was transitioning from its Dollar Pens to J-model pens, it had a lot of leftover Dollar Pen barrels. Instead of letting them go to waste, the company simply paired the old barrels with the new J-model caps! The cap on this pen has a non-traditional 3-line black plastic jewel. All the more fun and fascinating is that this pen comes with a rare oblique 2314-M nib! When you find the sweet spot, it is a smooth nib with a stub quality meant for right-handed people to make their writing really pop! Click the headline for a close-up. 12.3cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4652: Esterbrook: LJ-2968
More Americans learned how to use a fountain pen with Esterbrook than any other pen brand. High schools and secretarial schools often demanded Esterbrook pens for their students because these pens were so affordable and easily customized. This copper colored Esterbrook LJ is a long slender vintage pen. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. It comes with a steel 2968 nib. It writes a smooth medium line if your write slowly, but it gets scratchy on ascenders and descenders when you write quickly. Regardless of what you think of this nib, it is easily replaced by unscrewing. Esterbrook made roughly 3 dozen different nib points. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4648: Mabie Todd (Swan): 142/1
Bordering true flexi, this semi-flex Mabie Todd Swan 142/1 is a remarkable vintage pen. Fully restored, we installed a new ink sac. It has a chased black hard rubber cap and barrel. The cap is a little more discolored with chocolate hazing than the barrel. It also sports beautifully engraves initials and a deep scar visible in the photo. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen is long and about as wide as a Waterman 54...wider and easier to grip than the 52. Its imprints are sharp and easy to read. Its 14k gold #2 nib is scratched up on top, but it writes very well with flex from fine to 1mm. There's a little feedback, which is expected on many semi-flex nibs. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4646: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal
Back in the day, all the major pen companies had their lifetime warranties. Wahl-Eversharp had the double-check gold seal. This Gold Seal ringtop set is especially nice. The pencil has perfect pearl-and-black celluloid and is in great working order with a 1.1mm lead. There are a couple scratches on the nose cone and some brassing on the ring-top tassie. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. It has some discoloration in the cap and barrel but no cracks or significant scratches. What stands out is the 14k gold nib! Click the headline for a close-up. Imprinted is the magical word: "Semiflex." True, the cosmetics of the nib aren't good with lots of shallow scratches. However, the nib still performs well! You will write from fine to 1mm wide with a little expected feedback. It is a little larger for a ring-top pen at 11.9cm capped.
