Pencil: 5168 Sheaffer Lifetime Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 5168: Sheaffer: Lifetime Autograph
Marine green is a desirable and less common design on the 1930s Sheaffer Balance line. Even rarer are the Sheaffer Autograph models! Sheaffer Autograph pencils have a solid 14k gold pocket clip and an extra-wide solid 14k gold band around the cap. Typically, those wide bands were engraved. This vintage pencil has no such engraving! Better, yet, it is in great working order. Twist the tail cap to advance or retract the 1.1mm lead. Pull of the tail cap to access the remains of an eraser and spare leads beneath it. Unfortunately, this pencil isn't perfect. To the right of the cap band are some dots deeply cut into the celluloid, that also has a 1/2-inch of flat spot, possibly where someone tried to polish the dots out. The remainder of the pencil has some blemishes, especially near the top of the tail cap with a bite mark and a few lines/scratches imprinted. Believe it or not, you really don't see it well unless you go looking for it, but, nevertheless, it is there. 13.2cm.

Vintage Pens: 5163 Sheaffer Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 5163: Sheaffer: Autograph
If you wanted to show you were a big deal in the 1940s office environment, you'd own a Sheaffer Autograph. More than a standard high-end Triumph fountain pen, this pen came with a solid 14k gold band that was extra wide. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. It was engraved with the initials B.R. A great signature pen, you will find this pen comes with a juicy, smooth broad nib made of 14k gold. No dents, cracks nor deep scratches! Just light surface wear, except for one very little circular mark just below the lip of the cap on the barrel of the pen. Click the headline for a close-up of the pen and nib. 13.5cm capped.
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.
Pencil: 5158 Autopoint Autopoint
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $19.99
Pencil: 5158: Autopoint: Autopoint
Autopoint seems to have been born, nearly died and reborn again all within the span of a few years in the early 20th century. This pencil shows some wear from use and age, and unfortunately, the mechanism is seized up. Yet, it remains an early example of this classic brand. If it looks just like a Realite a little lower on the page, that is because the two companies had a very close relationship. 14.3cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5138 Parker Duofold Centennial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $399.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5138: Parker: Duofold Centennial
Parker seemed to be one of the first if not the first pen company to recognize that there was still demand for fountain pens and the pens of its own past. When it released a new version of its famed Parker Duofold in the 1980s, it was a huge hit. They are still popular enough today to continue being made. This is one of the earlier Parker Duofold Centennial fountain pens and ballpoint sets in a beautiful blue marbled design. Both of these pens show some wear from use but neither has any significant cosmetic flaws. The ballpoint comes with a working blue Parker refill. The fountain pen has an ink-stained but working converter. You will write a nice fine line with its 18k gold nib, which has some light feedback. It comes with its original boxes, though the interior of the box is a yellowed some with age. Click the headline for a close-up.
Pencil: 5154 Realite Realite
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $29.99
Pencil: 5154: Realite: Realite
The Realite Pencil Co. of Chicago sprang from Autopoint like Athena from Zeus' head, and soon bought out Autopoint. Realite than began undergoing a rebranding as Autopoint. In other words, this is an uncommon find for pencil collectors. It is in remarkably good condition, though it does have some scratches and wear after 100 years. It was found in a collection of mostly new-old-stock items from around 1923 and '24, which makes sense give that is likely when it was made, though it has no original tagging. The nose cone still twists to advance the 1.1mm lead. It sounds as if there are still leads under the eraser, but to pull out the eraser is to likely destroy the eraser. 14.6cm.
