Pre-Owned Pens: 6054 Pelikan Souveran M600
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 6054: Pelikan: Souveran M600
We've always been a sucker for blue pens...especially Pelikans. Like Mary Poppins, they are practically perfect in every way. This is the Pelikan Souveran M600. It has some light wear from use, but it was clearly well loved. We lubed up the piston for smooth filling action. It had some very determined-to-remain blue ink in it, but we think got it...or at least most of it...out. You will enjoy the smooth two-toned 14k gold medium-point nib. The 600 series typically fits medium-sized hands to larger hands that aren't likely oversized hands. Comes with its box. The logo is a frosted gold pelican and two chicks on a black background.

Vintage Pens: 6016 Esterbrook Transition
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 6016: Esterbrook: Transition
When Esterbrook went from making Dollar Pens to J-model pens, it ran out of Dollar Pen caps and opted to use the new J-model caps on the remaining Dollar Pen barrels. It is difficult to tell the original ones from the repairmen who replaced broken Dollar Pen caps with J-caps. We found this pen this way, but that doesn't mean anything. What is interesting is the top jewel on the cap has 3 lines instead of the usual concentric circles. The color match is pretty close to perfect between the cap and barrel. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. You will this upgraded steel 9461 nib that is firm and very smooth as it writes a fine line. No cracks, deep imprint, some wear from use. 12.4cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 6059 Stipula I Castoni
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 6059: Stipula: I Castoni
Turn this Stipula I Castoni fountain pen under a light, and you will see not just a simple black-and-amber pattern but amber flecks that change hues as the light catches them from different angles. The color design on this preowned pen is called the Occhio di Gatto or "Cat's Eye." It might be difficult to see in the photo, but the stone on the pocket clip is very sparkly. Our pen was gently used, as there is little evidence of wear. You will write a smooth medium line with its 14k gold nib. Click the headline for close-ups. Under the original box's pad is the pen's original converter, still sealed in plastic. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6015 Esterbrook Dollar Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 6015: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
In the 1940s, if you needed a cheap, reliable pen that was easily customized, you got yourself an Esterbrook Dollar Pen. We restored this black model with a new ink sac and new 1555 Gregg Shorthand nib. There are no cracks or deep scratches, but the early plastic cap on this pen has warped a bit. It can be difficult to get the cap on and off. You will write a nice fine line with its steel nib. There is a little feedback, but we wouldn't call this a scratchy pen...not compared to other Esterbrooks with the same nib. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.1cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5977 Sailor 1911 Demonstrator
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: Stub
Price: $199.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5977: Sailor: 1911 Demonstrator
All mysteries are revealed with a good demonstrator pen. This Sailor 1911 leaves little to the imagination. It is really fun to write with and fill. The fact that it has an M-S ("music") nib made of 14k gold could make this your very favorite preowned pen. In truth, we find this nib to be buttery smooth, but it writes more like a double broad. Its thick tipping does not give it a ton of line variation. Our luxury pen has minimal wear and there are only a couple traces of blue ink trapped in the inner cap. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6121 Wahl-Eversharp Symphony
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 6121: Wahl-Eversharp: Symphony
Leading the way with a space-age design is this second-year Eversharp Symphony fountain pen with a Loewy cap design. The legendary industrial designer Raymond Loewy created the original cap design for the first year pen. This second-year pen's cap shows a couple of minor alterations. Nevertheless, it still looks stunningly sharp. Eversharp also knew this pen as model 705. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. You'll see some light wear from use on its gold-filled cap. The barrel shows a bit heavier wear. However, you will love the smooth, fine-point 14k gold nib! It is a pretty dreamy writer. 14.1cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 6068 Krone Va-Va Voom
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 6068: Krone: Va-Va Voom
Krone kicks it up a notch with the Krone Va-Va Voom fountain pen. Curvy with silver-plated trim, it is an attractive addition to your preowned luxury pen collection. Turquoise and amber flecks pop against the milk-chai color of the cap and barrel. It looks as if it were barely ever used. It drips a little after you first fill it, then it holds its ink. After you fill it, we recommend bleeding a couple drops back out and wait for the drips to stop and then wipe it down. It seems to hold ink well after that. Complete with its box and papers. Click the headline for close ups. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth medium line. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5792 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5792: Parker: Duofold
Streamlining gave the Parker Duofold a fancy edge in the late 1920s. These red-marble celluloid models were even hotter. We just restored this one with a new ink sac. We also got the topper to the cap much darker, as it had substantially more chocolate hazing than it does now. Heavy brassing on the ball of the pocket clip and on the bottom cap band. No cracks, but there is a wear mark around the barrel where the cap posted. You will write a firm, fine line with its 14k gold nib. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen isn't junior sized...nor is it oversized. 12cm capped.
