Pre-Owned Pens: 4089: Visconti: Manhattan
Borrowing the best from the designs of the Parker Vacumatic and Waterman 94, the Visconti Manhattan in burgundy striped celluloid is a head-turning stunner. Barely used, this pen looks like it belongs in a museum it is so minty fresh. Its barrel is very clear for a quick check of the ink level within. You fill the pen with the Visconti "Power Filler" system, which was based on the old Sheaffer Vacuum-Fill piston filler. It holds A LOT of ink. Its 18k gold nib writes a fine line with a little feedback. YET, you can also get a little flex out of the nib for some line variation. As it is 18k gold, be careful not to spring the nib. It comes with its box and papers. Unfortunately, its box has a wearing-away crease line where the lid comes up. 13.8cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 3428: Mont Blanc: Leonard Bernstein
One of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century was Leonard Bernstein. He bridged the gap between classical and popular music, writing some of the most poignant and popular musicals of his time, including "West Side Story." Montblanc paid tribute to him with one of its "donation series" pens. Look closely at its cap band and you see a bit of the music and lyrics to the song "Maria." The tail band includes the phrase "Philharmonia of the Nations." Although you can see the nib sticker still on the barrel, our Montblanc Leonard Bernstein has been engraved with the name "Karin Patrzyk" and it has been used. Only light wear, and the piston filler works well. Its 18k gold nib writes a smooth medium line. Just FYI, most donation pens do not have serial numbers or L.E. numbering. 14.5cm capped.

Price: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4024: Pelikan: 805
There is a reason why Pelikan pens are our favorite among the modern brands: the nibs! If you love buttery smooth, fast, fluid writing it is tough to top the two-tone 18k gold nib with a medium point on our Pelikan 805 fountain pen. Its the type of pen that makes you want to race out of bed every morning just to write. Of course, its black and platinum-plated trim give it more of an evening clothes tuxedo appearance. Minimal wear means this pen looks pretty close to pristine. You'll find its piston filler is in excellent condition. There's a nice deep-green viewing window that lets you check to see if you're almost out of ink. Souveran pens of the 800 series are the second largest size pen Pelikan makes. It is large without being oversized. Two chicks and a mama pelican are on the cap's logo. 14.1 cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 4022: Omas: Paragon
Vibrant rainbows of bronze arco celluloid are the hallmark of the popular Omas Paragon fountain pen. One of the most sought-after pens of the past decade is here. Its piston filler is in good working order. Only the lightest traces of wear mar the nearly pristine cap and barre. No cracks, brassing or deep scratches. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth, wet medium line. There's a hint of drag as it writes. Not quite feedback but not quite buttery smooth, either. Paragon and Milord pens are difficult to define. Some years Paragons were smaller than other years. An unverified rule of thumb that we heard is that all Paragons are at least 14cm long when capped, and this one is 14.1cm capped. The barrel has a crisp "Omas Extra Italy" imprint.

Pre-Owned Pens: 1429: Visconti: Voyager Demonstrator
Before the demonstrator craze even got started, an Italian luxury pen manufacturer knew it would be a brilliant idea to showcase its finest wares. Thus, we have the birth of the Visconti Voyager Demonstrator limited edition. Black and yellow lines add panache to the clear cap and barrel of pen number 728 of 888. Its original owner filled it with blue-black ink. We did our best to clear it out, it still is visible in some places. Its piston filler is in good working order. You'll write a nice medium line with its two-tone 18k gold nib, but it might need a little breaking in to get used to daily use once again. Your purchase includes the pen's original wooden presentation box and papers. No cracks and minimal traces of wear mar this pen's surface. 14.2cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 4045: Pelikan: 800
Pelikan 800 pens are among our favorite being made today. Large, but not too large. Light weight for easy, cramp-free writing all day. Elegant without being snobby. Damned well made. Our preowned luxury pen has seen some good use in its lifetime. There's plenty of light wear on the cap and barrel, but the black still gleams enough to keep most of it hidden from a couple feet away. There are no cracks or deep scratches. Click the headline to see a little missing plating near the nib. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a nice fine line. We won't say it has feedback in the scratchy sense, but it has feedback in the sense you'll feel the page under the fine, almost extra-fine, point. This isn't one of those buttery smooth nibs. Piston filler works smoothly and easily. 14cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 3960: Mont Blanc: Writers Series Alexandre Dumas
Nobody ever wrote adventure and romance better than Alexandre Dumas, and nobody ever will. His novels such as "The Three Musketeers," "The Count of Monte Cristo," "The Corsican Brothers," "The Man in the Iron Mask" and many others are classics that are still well read and beloved. The Montblanc Writers Series paid tribute to him in 1996 with this stunning fountain pen. Original Mont Blanc screwed up and had his father's signature on the cap of the pen. They recalled those pens and replaced the cap with the correct autograph. You can tell this pen was a replacement cap by the "N" after the serial number: 15936/20000 N. The pen was gently used, works great and has only minor wear. You'll write a smooth medium line with its two-tone 18k gold nib. Oddly enough, the pen comes with its outer box and papers but not the original folding book box. Guaranteed authentic from a dedicated collector.
