Vintage Pens: 4128: Sheaffer: Balance
Perfection is achieved in the stunning green of our oversized Sheaffer Balance from 1940. Fully restored with a new ink sac, you won't find a trace of discoloration on the cap and barrel. Click the headline for a closer look, and you will see a little steel "brassing" on the cap band and flat ball of the clip. Those are the only imperfections you'll find. Its barrel imprint is shallow but legible. If you don't want to save it as a museum piece and prefer writing with it, you'll find its 14k gold nib is an extra-fine-to-fine point with a bit of feedback. Perfectly within the realm of normal for such a razor-sharp tip. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4083: Parker: Duofold
Oversized lapis blue Parker Duofolds this nice are difficult to find. Only the half-inch or so starting at the threads of the barrel are truly discolored and dark. You can see a lot of blue on both the cap and barrel...though especially on the cap. NO CRACKS! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. There's some brassing on cap bands and the ball of the clip. The pen has a few scars including a little mark on the cap below and to the left of the clip, and what look like plier marks on the barrel. The barrel is marked "Lucky Curve," but the inkfeed has a "Christmas tree" look without the "Lucky Curve" internal piece. Its 14k gold nib writes a surprisingly smooth, firm extra-fine line. Chocolate hazing on the cap topper and blind cap. 13.9cm capped.

Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4073: Sheaffer: Balance Abalone
Glittering abalone shell sets inlaid into the ebonite cap and barrel of our oversized Sheaffer Balance Lifetime. As much a piece of jewelry as it is a functional daily writer, and we are happily surprised that the abalone isn't heavily discolored. Unfortunately, the cap and barrel have some deep scratches and obvious wear. No cracks and fully restored with a new ink sac. You will find brassing on the pocket clip and cap band. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a firm, extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3969: Parker: 51
Time to cash in on that grail pen you've always wanted, Parker 51 fans. We have a nearly mint condition Yellowstone/Mustard Yellow Parker 51. There's hardly a trace of wear outside of where the cap snugs against the hood, and even that is feint. When we opened the pen to put in a fresh diaphragm, there was nothing in the barrel. A previous owner had already given the pen as thorough a cleaning as possible. As such, we didn't install.a new diaphragm. We suspect it has seen ink at some point, as light through the pen shows some dark spots under the hood, but, holy cats, this pen is still worthy of a museum. Its gold-filled cap saw more wear. There are a few dimples and scratches. We replaced the missing top jewel with a new, reproduction jewel. Its 14k gold nib is either an extra fine or fine. It could use a really good tuning to become a daily writer, but we suspect most people will want this vintage pen as a display piece.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3247 Parker Duofold Centennial

SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 3247: Parker: Duofold Centennial
Does a pen count as new old stock if it was dipped but never filled? Either way, you will love this modern, preowned Parker Duofold Centennial fountain pen in a reddish-purple swirl. The converter inside it never seems to have been filled, but there was a little ink on the nib. This is the oversize version of the modern Duofold. No cracks, a couple little scuffs on the black tail piece if you look with a magnifying glass. Its 18k, two-tone gold nib is marked extra fine, but we find it writes more of a smooth line closer to a fine. You will not find any initials engraved on the top of the cap. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2284 Sheaffer Secretary
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
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.

Vintage Pens: 2904: LeBoeuf: #8
If you are really looking to dazzle at the next pen club meeting or impress your friends online, how about this ultra rare oversized LeBoeuf #8 vintage pen. One of the first companies to perfect celluloid pen production, this model from the very early 1930s is an impressive light ivory color with a butterscotch vein running through it. It has a few spots of discoloration, but it is in much better condition than a lot of early ivory celluloids. Fill the pen by sliding the entire barrel back to reveal a fully restored squeeze bar system. No cracks in the celluloid, light wear, some brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib sports a crack running from the section up to the 8. Click the headline for a close-up. The nib writes a dry, extra-fine line well without pressure but gets scratchy in a hurry when you add any pressure. 13cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2650 Namiki Pilot Vanishing Point
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2650: Namiki Pilot: Vanishing Point
Almost New Old Stock, this is a prized mustard yellow Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen. It comes complete with its box and papers. It looks as if someone engaged the cartridge it came with, and that is all the ink it has seen. We flushed it with a sonic cleaning. The only think missing is the converter, but it does have that little metal cartridge cover. The gold nib is marked fine, but it writes like an extra-fine razor blade. 14cm.
