Pencil: 5158 Autopoint Autopoint
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $19.99
Pencil: 5158: Autopoint: Autopoint
Autopoint seems to have been born, nearly died and reborn again all within the span of a few years in the early 20th century. This pencil shows some wear from use and age, and unfortunately, the mechanism is seized up. Yet, it remains an early example of this classic brand. If it looks just like a Realite a little lower on the page, that is because the two companies had a very close relationship. 14.3cm.
Pencil: 5154 Realite Realite
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $29.99
Pencil: 5154: Realite: Realite
The Realite Pencil Co. of Chicago sprang from Autopoint like Athena from Zeus' head, and soon bought out Autopoint. Realite than began undergoing a rebranding as Autopoint. In other words, this is an uncommon find for pencil collectors. It is in remarkably good condition, though it does have some scratches and wear after 100 years. It was found in a collection of mostly new-old-stock items from around 1923 and '24, which makes sense give that is likely when it was made, though it has no original tagging. The nose cone still twists to advance the 1.1mm lead. It sounds as if there are still leads under the eraser, but to pull out the eraser is to likely destroy the eraser. 14.6cm.

Pre-Owned Pens: 5073 LeBoeuf Greg Norman
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $125.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 5073: LeBoeuf: Greg Norman
You're gonna need a bigger pen case. That's right "The Shark" Greg Norman has his own limited edition LeBoeuf fountain pen. Ours is numbered 0700. This is the modern revival of the classic LeBoeuf pen company that first invented the celluloid pen. The PGA champion's autograph is on the black cap of this otherwise gold plated pen sporting an alternating design of plain stripes and a barley pattern. At the top of the cap is an opal, perhaps a nod to his Aussie roots. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth medium line. Click the headline for a close-up. You can fill it with its included screw-in standard international converter or like cartridges. The pen looks great overall, but its cap doesn't always secure as tightly as we'd like. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5047 Sterling Silver
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 5047: Sterling: Silver
Maybe it is the romantic in us, but we like to picture a Victorian lady dressed in a fancy frock biting the end of this sterling silver dip pen as she writes her lover. To say this pen is elegant is an understatement. Fairly large for a dip pen, it is still slender, but not as slender as many other pens we've seen. Aside from the beautiful design there are no other hallmarks or assays other than the word "Sterling," which appears twice on the barrel of the pen in relief and not as an imprint. We aren't sure if this pen is from the early 1900s or late 1800s. We included a new-old-stock Bronze Falcon Esterbrook 048 nib. You will write a very nice semi-flex line that goes from a fine to almost 1mm wide with some feedback. Aside from the bite marks on the tail taper, the only other blemishes are some spots of tarnish we can't quite polish out. 18cm.
Vintage Pens: 5046 Sterling Silver Repousse
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 5046: Sterling Silver: Repousse
Classy, elegant, sophisticated. Dip pen fans will love this sterling silver repousse antique pen. We suspect it comes from around the turn of the 20th century. It could be older. The holder is marked "Sterling," but there is no formal branding. Ergo, we don't know who made it. There are a couple little marks on the pen, and one of the silver edges where the nib goes in has split just a teeny-tiny amount. We included a "new" Esterbrook Bronze Falcon 048 nib, which is NOS. You will write a firm, smooth line from extra-fine to about 1mm. This is semi-flex and far from a wet noodle. Click the headline for close-ups. Yes, our cat is holding the pen down for a nib close-up, and, no, he is not for sale with the pen. 18.5cm.
