Vintage Pens: 3930 Sheaffer Valiant
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 3930: Sheaffer: Valiant
Sheaffer launched a new filling system in 1949 called the TouchDown filler. It was a pneumatic filler that used air pressure to empty and fill a rubber ink sac inside the pen. Our Sheaffer Valiant TM (Thin Model) is one such TouchDown-filling vintage pen from the very early 1950s. It has been restored with a new ink sac and O-ring. Just unscrew the tail blind cap counterclockwise and pull back to prime the pen. It is the down stroke that fills the pen, even if that might seem counter-intuitive. There's a little ink viewing window to let you know if it is almost empty. It is ambered, but you can still see through it. The pen has some wear from use, but nothing that is hideous, especially if you plan to make it a daily driver. Its firm conical nib made of 14k gold writes a fine line with a little feedback. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4014 Conklin Glider
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 4014: Conklin: Glider
Own a piece of a scandal. When the venerable Conklin Pen Co. got bought out and moved to Chicago in 1938, it is rumored to have become a shell company for the mob. A couple of people have made potentially loose connections to that rumor but nothing is concrete. This Conklin Glider was around the cusp of 1940. You see great use of celluloids for the pen like this green one, but their quality control degraded sharply from their earlier days. We hope we have saved this pen, but we aren't sure. The clip, lever and lever wire are severely rusted. We cleaned as much of it up as we could and installed a new ink sac. It has a nice, smooth 14k gold nib that writes a fine line. Unfortunately, we don't know how long the lever wire and lever or clip will hold out. Discounted and sold as is, no returns. Good for first inexpensive experiment into vintage pens or good for parts to repair a better vintage Glider. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3978 Parker 61
Filling Mechanism: Capillary
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 3978: Parker: 61
We don't normally showcase a vintage pen fully disassembled, but we wanted to show off this Parker 61 that looks as if it is somewhat new old stock. We thought it was a daily user be cause it had several cracks in the barrel and the hood was missing a chip near the nib. When we tried unscrewing the barrel the hood unscrewed and revealed a pristine ink collector. As it had so much damage we already were selling it for parts, but maybe it is in better shape than we credited least the parts are. Includes an original 14k gold nib that looks fine but we didn't want to dip it and mess up the ink collector. Click the headline for a close-up of this vintage pen. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3995 Sheaffer Milady Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3995: Sheaffer: Milady Balance
As far as rose glow Sheaffers go, this is one of the rose glowiest we've seen. Rotate this Sheaffer Milady Balance set under a strong light and you'll see a great diversity of shadings between dusty pink and an almost burgundy pink, as well as delightful runs of grey in the rare celluloid. The fountain pen sports a new ink sac, and you can still see through the slightly clouded viewing window. No cracks, a spot of brassing on the cap band and just a little bit of wear from use. A nice crisp imprint on the pen and pencil. The pencil has some deeper nicks on the cap, but they are really hard to see unless intentionally looking for them. No brassing or cracks. Plus, the 1.1mm pencil works well, has extra leads and a hardened eraser under the cap. You'll write a fine line with a little feedback AND a little flex with the 14k gold nib. Slender pen measures 12.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3963 Sheaffer Lady Skripsert
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3963: Sheaffer: Lady Skripsert
We need the glamour of the 1950s more than ever, and our Sheaffer Lady Skripsert pen in Brocade Silver with Brilliants is a great way to light the way. Suitable for a princess, we offer this classic vintage pen complete with its original box. The box is marked "Xmas 1959 from Kelly" on the back in beautiful cursive writing. The cap of the pen is nearly perfect except for a mark on the very top where it might have been dropped. The barrel has a couple black spots and wear on the tip of the back end. All of the "brilliants" are accounted for, but one is much darker than the others. Its 14k gold nib is marked F9, and it writes a very firm, thick fine line with a bit of feedback. These pens used a slimmer version of the Sheaffer cartridge that is no longer in production today. However, the pen comes with a used cartridge that you can refill with a syringe. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3966 Conklin Endura Senior
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $549.99
Vintage Pens: 3966: Conklin: Endura Senior
Lapis lazuli looks like moonlight glinting off the ocean on this stunning blue Conklin Endura Senior. A classic from Toledo, Ohio, this vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, no brassing...only minimal wear, this pen belongs in a museum. We did not repaint the orange trim rings, and, as far as we know, it is original paint. Its original 14k gold nib writes a very firm, fine line that leans closer to extra fine. Click the headline for a great close-up photo. Its oversized zen makes for easier gripping. A phenomenal pen for use or display. 13.4cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3658 Waterman Phileas Demonstrator
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3658: Waterman: Phileas Demonstrator
Waterman Phileas pens got in on the demonstrator craze, too, it would appear. Our model seems to be new old stock that was never filled. All of the pen is impeccably clean. Minimal wear blemishes any part of the pen. We gave it just enough of a dip to see that it writes a fine, dry line with its steel nib that has a hint of feedback. 13.5cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3934 Waterman Preface
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $149.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3934: Waterman: Preface
Our prediction is that you'll have a predilection for Waterman Preface pens once you give one a scribble. Stately. Elegant, even. Our silver plated luxury pen is great for impressing at work or satisfying your soul at play. It fills with a simple standard international cartridge. You get a Waterman converter with this handsome writing instrument. It has a little light wear from use, but nothing stands out egregiously. Most people are drawn to its 18k gold nib. Write a fine line with a light touch or a medium line with a little heavier hand. Either way, it is a smooth writer. 13.3cm capped.
