Vintage Pens: 5159 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1910-1919   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5159: Parker: Lucky Curve
Parker advanced the efficiency and ease of using fountain pens when it created the Lucky Curve inkfeed. This is an early Parker Lucky Curve button filler from the very early 20th century. Click the headline for close-ups of the pen and nib. Notice the pen still has a slip cap and significant chocolate hazing of the black hard rubber (ebonite). We have not attempted to restore this pen. Notice how the threads of the blind cap by the button are missing. We feel that this rare older pen is likely too fragile to properly disassemble and put back together. Its 14k gold nib is a beautiful number 2 size that writes a very smooth medium line with a little flex. It also appears to have an early inkfeed. The pocket clip is an aftermarket clip made by the Rexall pharmacies. Slender and 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5151 Conklin 40P
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5151: Conklin: 40P
Didn't Shel Silverstein have a poem called, "Almost Perfect, but Not Quite"? That sums up our Conklin 40P. Nice, shiny black hard rubber. Deep, crisp chasing. Clear but a little uneven factory imprint. Fully restored with a new ink sac. You will even find that this vintage pen has a semi-flex nib that writes an extra-fine to 1mm line. Yet, if you look closely at the gold-plated crown on the cap, to the right of center is a big ol' dent where someone once dropped this magnificent old fountain pen. No cracks or other problems. 11.4cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 5112 Mont Blanc Daniel Defoe

Era: 1980-present
Price: $599.99  Was: $699.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5112: Mont Blanc: Daniel Defoe
"Where did Robinson Crusoe go with Friday on Saturday night?" We can't get the old Max Morath song out of our head since photographing these Montblanc Daniel Defoe limited edition pens. This ballpoint version of the pen looks brand new and comes with all its complete boxes and papers. The resin body has lines that make it look a little like wood. The ballpoint refill still writes a nice blue line. The pen is dedicated to Daniel Defoe's novel "Robinson Crusoe." Guaranteed authentic.
Vintage Pens: 5077 Sheaffer 41 Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $649.99
Vintage Pens: 5077: Sheaffer: 41 Autograph
You can't get much closer to perfection on the hard rubber cap and barrel on a rare Sheaffer 41 Autograph model pen than this. Its chasing and imprint are as crisp as the day it was made. Zero chocolate hazing. Its 41 imprint in the flat tail has orange paint or chalk in it, which apparently isn't original. Not a trace of brassing on its extra-wide gold-plated cap band, clip and lever. The ONLY flaw is the teeniest, tiniest little dimple a 25% turn to the left of the clip in the center of the cap band. That's it, and you'll miss it if you don't specifically look for it. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. It has a replacement 14k gold Lifetime nib without the serial number AND an original spear-point inkfeed. You will write a fine line with a little feedback, but we don't think most people will be making such a beautiful specimen a frequent writer. It is an impressive vintage pen, especially in this condition. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.5cm capped.
Pencil: 5072 Sheaffer GN
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 5072: Sheaffer: GN
One doesn't often find stickered, New Old Stock Sheaffer pencils from the 1920s, but this Sheaffer GN is just that. Its original price sticker is on the flat end of the tail cap. It simply states "GN $4.50." Pull out the tail cap to reveal the hardened eraser and spare 1.1mm leads. The main lead still advances and retracts. The mechanism is a little stiff but still works. Only light wear is on the Green-Gold Filled pencil. Amazing for a museum piece or daily writing. 13cm.
