Pencil: 4869 Wahl-Eversharp No. 1161 (Skyline)
Stickered, new old stock pencils might seem common on our site, but they aren't as common in the wild. Here is a classic Eversharp Skyline pencil with a sticker indicating it is model number 1161. It is an early click pencil with a 1.1mm lead. You'll find it works well and comes with some spare leads. The spare automatically feed into the pencil. Yet, you can access the spares and a hardened eraser by pulling out the clicker button. There is a little wear and brassing from wherever this vintage pencil stay hidden away for the past 70-odd years, yet, it still looks very nice overall. 13.3cm.
Vintage Pens: 4519 Parker Vacumatic Maxima
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Do you wish your vintage grail pen came with a Japanese extra-fine nib? This 1939 Parker Vacumatic Maxima gets pretty close to Japanese extra-fine with the right paper. It is a beautiful silver pearl design with tolerable barrel clarity with ambering. No cracks, no scratches, no significant wear. It comes with a fresh diaphragm and a clean imprint and top and bottom silver pearl design jewels. There's monotone 14k gold nib. Click the headline for close-ups. Great aluminum speedline filler. Its only flaw seems to be the darkened metal trim around the blind-cap jewel. 13.6cm capped.
Pencil: 4834 Sheaffer Imperial
We love the diamond pattern in the solid sterling silver Sheaffer Imperial pencil. It is in great working order. Twist the tail cap to extend and retract the .9mm lead. No dents but a little tarnish. You'll find the clip has the initials "S.R.M." A hardened eraser and spare lead are under the cap. 12.6cm.
Pencil: 4831 Sheaffer Titan
Sheaffer Titan pencils were the oversized models. This is a black-and-pearl model that is still showing good color. It works well advancing and retracting the 1.1mm lead. All it takes is a twist of the gold-plated tail cap. Unfortunately, somebody dropped this one years ago. One side of the tail piece is scrunched down a little in a few places. There's a little ding in the nose cone. You also can't miss the engraved name of "E.W. Miller." Spare leads are found under the tail cap. Nevertheless, it still works and writes great! 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4813 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Senior-sized Parker Duofolds with a wide cap band, such as this one, don't come along every day. In fact, they might only come along once or twice a lifetime, if you're lucky. We have one such beauty right here, and it has no cracks under the cap band. It is gorgeous with a deep Lucky Curve imprint, too! Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaw appears to be a thin sliver of brassing on the cap band. Click the headline for a close-up. This is a permanite model not the red hard rubber. Still, it is a great treat. There's a "Christmas tree" inkfeed and a 14k gold nib. You'll write a very nice medium line. Fairly crisp milling on the end caps, too! 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4520 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
The larger Parker Vacumatic Maxima fountain pens are a difficult find these days. However, we are proud to showcase a very handsome golden pearl model from 1941. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. It is in excellent condition with no cracks or brassing. There is minimal wear. Its only flaw seems to be that the barrel is ambered. You can still see through it when empty, but the celluloid is fairly dark. Click the headline to see its beautiful two-tone 14k gold nib. You will write a firm, wet, fine line. The firmness gives it feedback, but it isn't scratchy for those who appreciate the nuance of a smooth nib with feedback. 13.6cm capped.
