Vintage Pens: 3740: Conklin: Sub Endura
It took us a while to track down some answers for this pen. We finally discovered, courtesy of David Isaacson's inimitable website, that this was an unnamed model Conklin pen. He calls it the Conklin Sub Endura, as it was neither a Symetrik nor an Endura. It was meant as a lesser model for those who couldn't afford Conklin's higher end pens. While he had seen many of these pens in the past, he had only seen this maroon-and-pearl-grey pen once before. Ours is fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks and minimal wear. Its only real problem is brassing on the cap bands. Write a nice fine line with a hint of flex with this original 14k gold nib. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3729: Sheaffer: OS Balance Set
As far as we're concerned, the Sheaffer Balance might be the most perfect fountain pen ever made. Elegant, simple and an amazing writer. When the average person thinks of a vintage fountain pen, the stereotype image that most likely comes to mind is that of the Sheaffer Balance. This model is the rarer Over Sized Sheaffer Balance. It has been restored with a new ink sac. The color is amazing, without more than 5% discoloration. No cracks! You'll only find brassing on the ball of the clip. Light wear on the cap and barrel. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm, medium line. The pencil shows a little more wear with scratches on the nose cone and brassing on the ball clip. Twist the tail cap to advance a 1.1mm lead. The lead mechanism retracts, too, but we don't think this lead is engaged in it, so you need to push the lead back in after the twist retraction. We find that the pen is the widest Sheaffer Balance we've ever held, but it only measures a capped length of 13.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 3698 Waterman 7 Red Ripple

Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $475.00
Vintage Pens: 3698: Waterman: 7 Red Ripple
Modern lovers of vintage pens can't get enough of Waterman and its classic 14k gold nibs. Waterman's #7 pens are large pens that came in a rainbow of colors. The most important color on the pen was the ring on the cap. Each color signified a custom nib characteristic. Our red ripple Waterman's #7 is the Red Ring model. The Red was advertised as a medium point nib with semi-flex characteristics. Our pen has been restored with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel are about as close to mint as you will find. The trim has only 1% or 2% brassing. Click the headline for close-ups. You'll see a little scratch in the lip of the section where the nib fits in it. The nib also has a couple of scratches clustered together on the top tine of the photo. Writes great, as advertised, flexing to about 1.2mm. 14.2cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $550.00
Vintage Pens: 3433: Wahl-Eversharp: Deco Band
Oversized pens such as this vintage Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Decoband, but when you add in a flexi "Signature" nib, it becomes irresistible. Be the envy of your pen club with this woodgrain, red-hard-rubber giant. Restored with a new ink sac, our vintage pen is a stunner whose cap and barrel crack and major blemish free. Click the headline to see a close-up of the nib. On the bottom-right side of the nib, where it goes into the section, you'll see an odd dent in 14k gold, but it doesn't seem to effect the writing. You'll write with a little feedback, as you flex the nib from fine to roughly 1.5mm wide. There's a deep scratch on the inkfeed under the nib, but nobody spends much time staring at the inkfeed. The lever has a little brassing. Some of the woodgrain black is a little discolored on the cap. Overall, the pen is in great shape. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3383 Sheaffer Triumph Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3383: Sheaffer: Triumph Autograph
Sheaffer added a new special feature to its rarer models of the 1940s...a big solid gold band for etching a customers autograph on it. This is the Sheaffer Triumph Autograph in PRISTINE condition. No autograph or other engravings. Minimal wear. It was restored with a fresh ink sac, and the viewer window is still clear enough to see its light green factory freshness. For its era, it is a big pen, too. No skinny-pen-hand-cramping action here. You'll also get a larger, early version of the conical "Triumph" nib in two-tone 14k gold. It writes a firm, fine line. We can see where some people say it has feedback, but it also is well within normal for Sheaffer firm fines. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2284 Sheaffer Secretary

Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 2284: Sheaffer: Secretary
Behold the oversized Sheaffer Secretary vintage pen. A real grail pen. Made of an eye-catching red radite in circa 1926, you'll even get the original 14k Secretary nib. Click the headline to see the special design. Effectively a Sheaffer Lifetime, it was 20% cheaper, had a size 7 nib instead of the size 8 and didn't include the lifetime warranty. However, it was every bit as satisfying. These days, the Sheaffer Secretary is a hard-to-find vintage pen...especially an oversized model in this pen's condition. It has only a little wear to the cap and barrel. The ink sac has been replaced. The imprint is fairly well faded. Its biggest flaws are two hairline cracks in the lip of the pen. In some lights, you can see two slightly discolored/darkened rings around the cap that are only a shade or two darker than the cap. Only a little brassing on the cap band. The nib writes a firm, true extra-fine line, with a little feedback. 13.1cm capped.
