Vintage Pens: 4678 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: BB
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 4678: Sheaffer: Lifetime
We were raised on Sheaffer nibs. As such, they usually feel amazing to us. As even more such, we adore this Sheaffer Lifetime and don't care if the jade green is discolored. It writes a gloriously buttery smooth DOUBLE BROAD line with its 14k gold nib. Holy cats! We restored this pen with a new ink sac. No cracks. If you don't mind the discoloration, you likely won't mind the light wear and brassing. Again, with this nib, it is all about the writing experience. Click the headline for close-ups of the pen and nib. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4681: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Welcome to your new favorite daily driver! This early black radite 1920s Sheaffer Lifetime is one smooth writing treat. We restored this oversized flattop with a new ink sac. Yeah, it shows some wear and tear. A name was taken off the pen, and it shows a little warping around the top of the cap. There is some light to moderate wear on the rest of the cap and barrel. But who cares?! Once you write with this beast, you may never want to write with anything else. Click the headline to see the early 14k gold Lifetime nib without a serial number. It writes like a wet, broad dream that is both very smooth but not a total paint brush. You can just feel the paper under your pen. We love it. Sheaffer super fans will like that it has an "F" on the flat bottom of the pen, which indicates it was made for Sheaffer at a contracted factory when production demands topped what Sheaffer alone could manufacture. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4710 ?? Newton & Co. ? Sterling Silver
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: pre-1900   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4710: ?? Newton & Co. ?: Sterling Silver
Click the headline to get this started properly and see the stunningly huge wet-noodle flexy 14k gold nib. Looks like a faded initial or two then "Newton & Co. / New York / No. 5." We've seen other brands size 8 nibs that look smaller than this nib. This vintage dip pen is large and exquisite. Although it isn't marked as such, it appears to have a sterling silver section and hollow barrel. Possibly a pencil was involved with the other end of the nib section, but it is missing and there is a large blemish that is easily seen in the photo. Dents blemish the end of the barrel. Nevertheless, this remains a beautiful 19th century pen. We aren't expert enough to wield it, yet it seems to write a nearly invisible extra-fine to 1mm line. 14.1mm fully extended, 10.3cm closed.
Vintage Pens: 4709 John Holland Fine No. 7
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 4709: John Holland: Fine No. 7
Victorian/Edwardian dip pen fans will continue to gush over this red mottled hard rubber No. 7 by John Holland. It is a dynamite hard rubber pen with no cracks. You can see some dark ink staining on one end, but the rest of the vintage pen is pretty amazing. Its huge 14k gold nib is marked "fine," and it has a little flex but it isn't a wet noodle. It has a little feedback as most of these dip nibs do, but it is a treasure for sure. The tail taper is also the cap of the pen. Great for attempting Spencerian script or display. 9.2cm closed.
Vintage Pens: 4708 Hick’s LeRoy W Fairchild
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: pre-1900   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4708: Hick’s: LeRoy W Fairchild
William S. Hicks Gold Pen Co. got its start in 1857. This dual dip pen and pencil has an 1867 patent mark. It is a lovely Victorian pen. The barrel sports some kind of black lacquer over a diamond pattern. We assume (potentially wrongly) that the barrel is made of brass with gold-filled ends. The section could very well be made of gold and has an identical pattern as the barrel. However, the section is stamped with the maker name of "L.W. Fairchild & Co." (The bottom of the L is a weak imprint and looks like a T.) The large No. 6 14k gold nib is marked LeRoy W Fairchild. It is a fantastic Spencerian nib that writes fine to 2mm with plenty of flex! Click the headline for close-ups. We don't know if the pencil still works, but the tube still extends and retracts. Minimal wear on the pen and its pieces, possibly some brassing or stubborn tarnish. Look closely at the nib stand-alone photo. There might be the start of a crack in the bottom or left shoulder of the nib. 9.5cm closed.
Vintage Pens: 4707 Sheaffer Lifetime Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4707: Sheaffer: Lifetime Desk Pen
Perhaps you are all about that base but lack the proper desk pen. Hopefully, we can help with this Sheaffer Lifetime fountain pen from the late 1920s or early 1930s. We restored it with a new ink sac. Click the headline to see close-ups. If the focus on the pen looks a little soft, that is actually just how the pen looks. It has a lot of light wear that seems to have effected its luster. We really like the two-tone 14k gold nib's look. It writes a dry, extra-fine line with a little feedback. 20.6cm with taper.
Vintage Pens: 4706 Sheaffer Statesman Special
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4706: Sheaffer: Statesman Special
Love cannot be denied, not even between two inanimate objects. That is how a Sheaffer Statesman nib and barrel came to be wedded to a Sheaffer Special cap. As all great couples have a couple-name like Bennifer, this is the Sheaffer Statesman Special. It is a great, fully restored Sheaffer Snorkel pen. It has a fresh ink sac, O-ring and point seal. Its "palladium-silver" nib is actually worth much more than a 14k gold nib in today's market. You will love it for its wet, smooth medium line. No cracks, but there is strange marking on the side of the barrel. Technically, it is visible in the photo near the tail, but it doesn't really show, though it does have a shade of texture in real life. Still, an amazing daily writer in pastel green. (Also perfect for getting in the mood to write Christmas cards.) 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1075: Sheaffer: Crest
Sheaffer Crest fountain pens are easily identified by their gold-filled caps on normal Sheaffer Snorkel pens. This vintage pen sports a nice pastel green barrel. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. The snorkel itself is a rare 14k gold tube, which means this is a first-year pen from 1952. Just wait until you write with it. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a super-smooth, medium line. There's only a little wear an light scratching on the body. The cap is free of scratches and dents, except directly under the clip, which is a little off kilter. We fixed an earlier seepage problem, and now it is dry as a bone when resting full of ink. An amazing pen and writer. 14cm capped.
