Vintage Pens: 5909 Parker 21
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 5909: Parker: 21
Cashing in on the enormous success of its Parker 51, Parker decided to create a more affordable version of the pen to reach even more customers. This pen is the Parker 21. One of the biggest differences between them is that the 21 has a steel nib, and the 51 has a gold nib. Our vintage pen is in good working order, complete with a working original pli-glass ink sac. Its nib is more of a fine-medium that has a little feedback at the tops and bottoms of letters. You should be able to see a big crack in the barrel where it threads to the section. Don't grip it too hard or use to much pressure, as you will get it to wiggle in your hand a bit. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.4cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5908 Sailor 1911
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $125.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 5908: Sailor: 1911
The legendary Sailor Zoom Nib is on this petite-sized Sailor 1911 fountain pen. It is a beautiful pre-owned pen with minimal wear. Also included is a Sailor box, but we don't know if it is the original box. These items were found separately. Made of 14k gold, the Zoom nib allows a writer to enjoy a broad, medium and fine line. We find that holding the pen at a 45-degree angle gets us a very smooth broad line. Hold it more perpendicular to the paper and it delivers a slightly rougher feeling medium. Turn it over to write with the "top" of the nib for an extra-fine to fine line that we feel is a little scratchy. Also included is a converter. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5897 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 5897: Parker: Duofold
Not every vintage pen is going to be the belle of the ball. Today's Parker Duofold from 1942 seems to have been somebody's loyal workhorse. A great deal of the cap band is heavily brassed. There's a hairline crack in the cap lip running up under the cap band. The pen shows overall wear, and the 14k gold nib looks a little wonky. Click the headline for close-ups. HOWEVER, we restored it with a new diaphragm, and it writes surprisingly well. You'll find it is a wet medium with a touch of feedback. It actually writes much better than it looks. Perfect for a daily driver that doesn't mind another ding or two. 13.2cm capped.
Pencil: 5894 Mont Blanc Jules Verne
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1980-present
Price: $499.99
Pencil: 5894: Mont Blanc: Jules Verne
Play it safe and write out your New Year's resolutions in pencil to better go back and fix them as you go. We think the best way to do that is with the Montblanc Writers Series Jules Verne pencil. This stunning luxury pencil is only lightly used with just a shade of wear. It works great. Twist the tail cap to advance or retract the .7mm lead. It comes with an almost new eraser and spare leads. We love the way the guilloche waves ripple under the blue-enamel surface. Unfortunately, we no longer have the original boxes and papers. 14cm.
Vintage Pens: 5327 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 5327: Sheaffer: Lifetime
We don't often offer parts for sale, as we need them too badly, ourselves. However, this complete senior Sheaffer Lifetime flattop nib assembly was a consignment pen where the celluloid cap and barrel were far too badly krazed and brittle to carry on life. Therefore, this still functional set of a section, 14k gold nib and feed need a new home. The outside diameter of the nipple is about 8mm and the friction fit bit appears to be about a centimeter wide. We don't have a caliper to be certain. The Lifetime nib writes wet fine line that some people might call medium. It might be a shade scratchy but writing with only it and no barrel is tricky for accurate results.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5892 Mont Blanc Jules Verne
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $699.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5892: Mont Blanc: Jules Verne
Fine waves of guilloche ripple under the blue enamel surface invoking the ocean in the Montblanc Writers Series Jules Verne ballpoint pen. Best known for his book "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" Verne was among the very first science fiction writers setting his adventure on a deep-sea submarine exploring the last depths of unknown earth. When he first wrote the story, submarines were hand powered and barely dipped a foot or two below the surface of the water...often sinking and killing their crew. As for this preowned luxury pen, it was barely used and looks pristine. It come complete with its original boxes and papers. It also sports a working blue ballpoint refill. 13.7cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5888 Mont Blanc Daniel Defoe
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $1,199.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5888: Mont Blanc: Daniel Defoe
The 2014 Montblanc Writers Series fountain pen was dedicated to Daniel Defoe. He is most famous for the classic "Robinson Crusoe." This preowned luxury pen comes with all of its complete papers and boxes. The pen looks perfect...except for the nib. The 18k gold nib is losing its ruthenium or platinum plating. Click the headline for a close-up. We filled the pen with water, and we aren't certain if it has ever been used. We dipped the nib and it writes a smooth medium line. 14.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5886 Conklin Duragraph Omniflex
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5886: Conklin: Duragraph Omniflex
Flexi steel nibs can be a lot of fun, especially for more artistic writing. Our modern, orange Conklin Duragraph sports a steel "omniflex" nib. It writes from extra fine to about 1mm. It takes a little practice to master it, as it is a little on the stiff side. The pen comes with its original box and papers. Also included is a screw-in standard international converter. Only light traces of wear mar this pen's cap and barrel. 14cm capped.
