Pencil: 5012 Sheaffer Sentinel
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Pencil: 5012: Sheaffer: Sentinel
Matching its pencil lines to its TouchDown-filling fountain pens, this vintage pencil was released as the Sheaffer Sentinel pencil. A two-tone chrome and gold cap contrasts beautifully against a dark green barrel. Minimal wear mars the surfaces of this classic pencil. A twist of the tail cap smoothly advances and retracts the .9mm lead. Cooler still is that this pencil is loaded with a red lead! Remove the cap to reveal a hardened original blue Sheaffer eraser. 12.9cm.
Pencil: 5010 Parker Non-Stop (Vacumatic)
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Pencil: 5010: Parker: Non-Stop (Vacumatic)
Parker Vacumatic pencils sold far less than their fountain pen counterparts, which Parker chalked up to the Great Depression. Nevertheless, Parker didn't stop innovating the Parker Vacumatic line. In 1939 it released the Parker Non-Stop pencil to pair with Vacumatic fountain pens. Unique to the Non-Stop was that it was a cap-activated click pencil! This was not a common feature in that era. Plus, the .9mm leads now fed directly from the spare lead reservoir. As such, these pencils held much more lead and required way less effort to keep writing. Our vintage pencil has a couple of deep scratches, which you can see in the tail cap in the photo. Especially unique is the wide stacked-coins cap band, which has a blank initials' plate. A hardened eraser and spare red leads are included. 13.1mm.

Imagine if Claude Monet were a pen designer today. We're pretty sure he would have come up with this Pelikan K600 Vibrant Green design!

Twist the tail cap to extend and retract the working GREEN Parker-style refill! The logo is a frosted gold with a mama pelican and single chick. 12.7cm.

Under the tail cap you will discover a semi-functional eraser and a couple spare leads. 13.4cm.

Pre-Owned Pens: 4895: Visconti: Alhambra
New Old Stock. We don't think this very limited edition Visconti Alhambra has ever been filled. Click the headline to see a close up of the 18k gold nib and clean feed under the breather hole. A stunning Moorish trellis work of .999 pure silver inlaid in the red ebonite cap and barrel pay tribute to the incredible Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. The palace, which was completed in the 14th century, remains one of the great architectural marvels of the world. This phenomenal luxury pen comes complete with its boxes and papers.

Pencil: 5005 Sheaffer Balance 250
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $29.99
Pencil: 5005: Sheaffer: Balance 250
Striated Carmine is one of the rarest colors of this era in Sheaffer production. Our Sheaffer Balance 250 is a great vintage pencil still in good working order. The 250 imprinted on the barrel meant that it cost $2.50 when it was brand new. Its celluloid is worn from use, but there are no cracks. Its gold plated trim only shows a hint of brassing on the ball of the pocket clip. You fill this pencil with .9mm leads, and it comes with a few spares. The eraser is long gone. Advance and retract the lead with a twist of the tail cap. 12.2cm.
Pencil: 5003 Wahl-Eversharp Doric
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $125.00
Pencil: 5003: Wahl-Eversharp: Doric
One of the most iconic art deco writing instruments of the 1930s is the Wahl-Eversharp Doric. Sadly, the gorgeous celluloid used by Eversharp has an unfortunate tendency to kraze (crackle into hundreds of little pieces). Luckily, this Eversharp Doric is in incredibly good condition. NO KRAZING! Its "Kashmir" green marble design is stunning. Its gold-plated trim is about 95% perfect, only hints of brassing on corners and edges. The double-checked gold seal under the clip means this vintage pencil came with a lifetime warranty for the life of its original owner. At writing distance, you can't see any wear, but a close inspection shows little marks and micro blemishes. Twist the tail cap to extend and retract the 1.1mm lead. Under the tail cap is a hardened eraser and spare leads. 13.1cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5002 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5002: Sheaffer: Crest
Sheaffer Crest pens were very handsome pens first released in the 1940s. They were very popular through the 1950s. In the early 2000s, Sheaffer revived the elegant pens and gave them an update. This is one such ballpoint pen. Well balanced and weighted, it is a great daily driver. Unfortunately, it is heavily scratched. You can see a close-up, if you click the headline. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract its working black Sheaffer ballpoint refill. 13.6cm.
