Pens and Ephemera
Vintage Pens: 2600 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
From the heyday of the vintage pen era comes an oversized Conklin Endura in black and bronze! Even the original painted yellow stripes are 99% intact! It is a beautiful pen which we restored with a fresh ink sac. The trim has some brassing, as you might see in the photo. Click the headline to see a better close-up. The bronze in the cap is a little duller than it is in the barrel, but it still looks great. The back of the cap has a worn "dent" line in it, but it is difficult to see unless someone is looking at the pen closely. Strong imprint, light wear on the rest of the pen. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a great, smooth, firm extra-fine line! 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1267 Conklin IV
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Round out your vintage Conklin collection with this silver-plated Conklin IV pencil. Although it hasn't any lead, you can see the mechanism move up and down when you twist the nose cone. The pencil has an attractive chevron patter. You can see it and some of the wear better when you click the headline photo. There are no dents in the barrel, but the nose cone has some pitting and dings. The plating has some dark patches that don't seem to want to polish up nicely. The imprint on the tail are strong. The blind cap reveals the eroded remains of the hardened eraser. 13.4cm.
