Vintage Pens: 4501 Conklin Crescent 40
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4501: Conklin: Crescent 40
Almost perfect but not quite. Let's get it over with. Look closely at the threads of the barrel. Yes, that is a 2mm square chunk missing. Otherwise this pen is a perfect New Old Stock Conklin Crescent 40. We restored it any way with a new ink sac. Excellent chased black hard rubber with a deep imprint. No brassing. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine to 1mm wide semi-flex line. BUT, that stupid chunk missing makes this pen a risk to break with any flex writing. The pressure could crack the barrel or worse. That is why it is $250 cheaper than the other mint and flawless 40 we have on the site. 13.9cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 4441: Conklin: Rik Will Vermeil
Seeking a treasure for your pen collection? The legendary Rik Will made this custom modern Conklin Crescent pen of vermeil! That is gold plating on top of sterling silver. Still in mint condition, it comes in its original boxes. We don't think it was used beyond a dip. Its ink sac is still in good working order. You'll write a juicy smooth medium line with its 14k gold nib, which is also rarer on these modern Conklins. The only flaws that we have found are on the top flat part of the cap. Just a couple of shallow micro scratches silver often picks up by looking at it funny. You won't notice them unless you are looking for them. This is a large pen in girth and length. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4465 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4465: Conklin: Endura
New Old Stock senior-size Conklin Endura fountain pens don't turn up every day, but we are excited to offer this shiny black model with reddish-orange accent lines. No brassing. No cracks. No significant scratches. Fully restored with a new ink sac. Due to age, some of the accent color is fading or coming out, but it is hard to find original paint in these pens. The only flaw is this odd little textured "rash" on the section. The rest of the pen is perfect. Click the headline for a close-up of the 14k gold extra-fine nib. It has a little feedback, but it also writes a Japanese whisper-thin extra-fine line. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4363 Conklin Rolled-Gold Pencil
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4363: Conklin: Rolled-Gold Pencil
We aren't sure what Conklin called this pinstriped pencil made of rolled gold, but it is a very handsome taste of the 1920s. It is marked "Patented July 6, 1920." We suspect is was made a couple years later. This pen is a little more slender than the 4B and 5V models, but it is the same length. New Old Stock, it is dent and damage free. Twist the nose cone to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. Pull off the tail blind cap to reveal a hardened eraser. Unscrew the eraser to reveal some spare leads. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4362 Conklin 5V
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4362: Conklin: 5V
Jazz Age style and sophistication shines through on this new old stock Conklin 5V pencil. A "w" pattern flys down the barrel of this vintage pencil on finely wrought pinstripes. Marked rolled gold, all of the imprints and design features are strong and crisp. Patented on July 6, 1920, we suspect this one was made more likely in 1924 or '25. Twist the nose cone to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. Pull off the tail cap to reveal an unused hardened eraser. Unscrew the eraser to reveal spare leads. No brassing, dents or scratches. Looks like it just left the factory in Toledo, Ohio. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4337 Conklin 40
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: Stub
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 4337: Conklin: 40
Do you like the effect of a flexible nib but hate all the effort that goes into getting good writing that way? Then you, my friend, will love writing with a factory-fresh stub nib made of 14k gold! Our latest Conklin 40 is N.O.S. with one such nib. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. Crisp chasing, no cracks! The only wear is a tiny bit of brassing on the top and bottom of the pocket clip and on the top of the crescent. The crescent, by the way, has two sides that have imprints. Click the headline for a close-up of the stub! It writes well but subtly, unless you add a little extra pressure to get some dramatic lines amplified. 13.8cm capped.

Direct from the Roaring '20s comes this green-gold Conklin 5V pencil. New Old Stock, this pencil is in mint condition and comes with its original price sticker! Its classic chevron design is dent free with minimal, if any, wear. Pull off the blind tail cap to reveal its original hardened eraser. Unscrew the eraser to reveal the spare leads. To advance and retract the 1.1mm lead, twist the nose cone to the right or left. No engravings. 13.3cm.

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.
