Price: $99.99
Pencil: 5035: Sheaffer: Titan
The granddaddy of all pencils is here: Sheaffer Titan. This is what we like to call the lemon-lime jade version, as it features bright yellow swirls and flecks in the bright jade green celluloid. Our vintage pencil is in good working order. Twist the gold-filled crown on top to advance or retract the lead. As is the case with most of these, the crown is a bit dented around its edges. There's brassing on the ball and top of the pocket clip. Overall, the pencil looks great. No cracks or deep scratches. It fills with 1.1mm lead. There's a hardened eraser plugging up the space where we can hear spare leads rattling around. 13.2cm.

If you love the Montblanc 146 LeGrand size but hate filling the pen from a bottle, then you will love this Montblanc 147 Traveler fountain pen. It only fills with short standard international cartridges! Two slip on to this special carriage to be loaded into the pen. Our preowned pen is in excellent condition with only minor wear. It has a smooth medium nib made of the preferred 14k gold. "Pix" is in the cap band of this pen, and there is a serial number on the pocket clip band: XT1448979. Unfortunately, we don't have the original box or fancy leather case made just for this pen. 14.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5033 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $449.99
Vintage Pens: 5033: Parker: Duofold
Almost perfect but not quite. Check out the beautiful pearl-and-black celluloid on this Canadian Parker Duofold Jr. set. You can see some traces of the brown discoloration that got started in this vintage pen, but it isn't nearly as bad as most of these pens that I've seen. The inside of this cap is so clean, we're not sure the pen was ever used. It has been restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, major blemishes or brassing. Light wear if any. Click the headline to see a close-up of the original 14k gold nib. You can barely see it in the photo but there is a hairline crack just to the right or top of the "B" in the photo and it works its way up to the top bar of the "E" in "Pen." You will write a smooth medium line. Its matching pencil has perfect color but much more wear, and it doesn't work.
Vintage Pens: 5031 Sheaffer Lifetime Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 5031: Sheaffer: Lifetime Balance
Sheaffer shook-up its line-up in the late 1920s with the dynamic torpedo stylings of its Sheaffer Lifetime Balance pens and pencils. These modern beauties were ready for the art deco era. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Its black-radite cap and barrel show a fair degree of light wear, but there are no cracks or brassing. You write a nice extra-fine line with its original 14k gold Lifetime nib with a flat-comb feed. Making a complete set is the oversized Sheaffer Lifetime Balance pencil. Nearly 100 years old, it still works great. Advance and retract the 1.1mm lead with a twist of the tail cap. Although it works great, it has way more wear than the pen. You'll find bite marks and some deep scratches on the pencil. Pen measures 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5029 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: BB
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 5029: Parker: Duofold
Lapis Lazuli Parker Duofolds are hard to find in such a vibrant blue condition. Yes, this junior-sized vintage pen is a couple shades darker than the matching pencil, but it is still a nice color. Click the headline for close-ups. The white flecks in the lapis blue pen are only mildly yellowed or browned in some places! The vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. You will write a juicy double broad line with its 14k gold nib. There is a Christmas-tree style ink feed. Spots of brassing on the cap bands and clip. Light wear on the cap and barrel. The matching streamlined pencil is not working very well, shows a little wear and brassing...and it is missing a decorative barrel band. Pen measures 11.4cm capped.
Pencil: 5026 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline 176 PB
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Pencil: 5026: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline 176 PB
Click-advance lead systems were brand new when Eversharp released its Eversharp 176-PB pencil. It might also be considered an Eversharp Skyline pencil. This vintage pencil is new-old-stock. You can see its original price tag/sticker ring in the photo. There is a little ink staining on the ring, but you can read most of the ring, including its 1940s' price of $3.75. We like that it is blue and that you can see how they used a different plastic for the nose cone. No brassing mars the gold-plated trim, but you can see plenty of wear marks on the pencil. Remove the tail clicker to find a hardened eraser and spare 1,1mm leads. 11.6cm.
