Vintage Pens: 4039 Sheaffer PFM V
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 4039: Sheaffer: PFM V
What do the Ford Edsel and Sheaffer PFM have in common. They were masterpieces of 1950s design and technology that were completely overlooked in their time and adored by later generations. Sheaffer's "Pen for Men" came in 5 different model types and our Sheaffer PFM V was the pinnacle with a gold-plated cap and tail piece. We didn't restore this pen, but we got it from a customer who had it restored a couple years ago. It is still in good working order, and its 14k gold inlaid nib writes a lush broad line with a little feedback. Unlike earlier snorkel pens, this vintage pen is thicker and easier to grip without cramping your hand. Theres a shadow of a dent in the cap that we can't seem to photograph, but the pen is in overall good condition with a little other wear from past use. The cap jiggles a little, and the closure is good but not as tight as it once was. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4038 Mabie Todd (Swan) 2060
Filling Mechanism: Twist)
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4038: Mabie Todd (Swan): 2060
Twist and shout with an actual working twist-filling Mabie-Todd Swan 2060 fountain pen. An impressive pen, sleek and oversized, it features the rare twist filler. Basically, all you do is twist the blind cap on the tail a half turn or so to squeeze the ink sac and replace it to its normal position, which fills the pen. We've never restored one before, and we were excited to find this one still working. It is from a dedicated vintage pen collector, so the new sac was likely put in within the last 5 or 10 years. There's a lot of brassing on the cap bands and some wear on the pen, including some chocolate hazing of the section. However, the pen looks pretty good overall. Most people will likely geek out over the #6 Swan 14k gold nib that writes a smooth, dry medium line but stiffly flexes to a juicy 1mm line. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4037 Fend Normatic Walz Gold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4037: Fend: Normatic Walz Gold
We restored this Fend Normatic Walz Gold fountain pen with a new ink sac. It writes delightfully well. Its Warranted 14k gold nib has some flex and write smoothly from medium to 1.25mm wide. You can see some chocolate hazing on the black hard rubber, and a few marks on the rubber as well. The gold plating/fill on the sleeve are great with only a little wear and brassing at the edges. Given its tiny size, we suspect it was a vest-pocket pen. 9.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4036 Unknown Oversized Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4036: Unknown: Oversized Fountain Pen
Here's a fun curio from the way, way back machine. We have no idea who made this beautiful black oversized fountain pen. The only clue appears to be a faded logo on the pocket clip. We think it is a "J" in a circle, but the circle and top of the J are incomplete. Stranger still is the oversized Parker Vacumatic nib in the pen! We restored this button-filler pen with a new ink sac. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen has some wear, but it looks pretty good. Its 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine to fine line. The nib alone is worth the price of the pen. The wider grip and light weight make it ideal for all-day writing without much if any cramping. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3388 Parker 61 MK III Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3388: Parker: 61 MK III Flighter
Even the great Parker 61 saw a couple of updates in its run. The MK III Flighter was the all brushed steel version of the pen with a cartridge-converter fill system...unlike the original capillary filler. This pen comes with its original converter, but it should be able to take a modern Parker converter, too. It definitely will take modern Parker cartridges. The pen has a little wear from use. You'll write a medium line with the 14k gold nib that has a little feedback. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4035 Marxton Oversized
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4035: Marxton: Oversized
Here's an oversized fun big, little curio. Click the headline for a closer look at our oversized Marxton fountain pen with a tiny 14k gold Waterman nib. Don't be too fooled, it writes a very wet, broad line with a little feedback. This pen is fully restored with a fresh ink sac. Tiny nib might not work at certain angles while writing. Yet, the wide-bodied grip will help keep you from cramping as you write. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4034 The Exact Weight Scale Co. Postal Scale
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $35.00
Vintage Pens: 4034: The Exact Weight Scale Co.: Postal Scale
Are you obsessed with weighing things down to the ounce? Maybe you need a vintage, pocket-sized postal scale! Disguised as a pen, when you unscrew it, you reveal a clip to grab an envelope and weigh it. Postage has always been paid for by weight, and a postal clerk or concerned secretary might keep this handy device around to know how many stamps were needed for each letter and small package. Click the headline photo to see the scale pulled out to its full 8-ounce mark. It's a totally fun piece of history. We aren't sure if the scale is still accurate, but the spring inside it still has plenty of resistance. 12.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4048 Esterbrook J Model
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 4048: Esterbrook: J Model
Esterbrook pens were among the best selling fountain pens of the 1950s. Their affordable style and easily customized nature made them top picks for students in high school, college and secretarial schools. We restored with a fresh new ink sac. It is in great shape with no cracks and no significant wear...aside from a faded imprint. Otherwise, this pen has lightwear from use. It sports what was then considered an upgraded steel 9556 nib. We find it writes a nice fine line with a little feedback. However, the best part of these pens is that you can unscrew the nib and replace it with one of about 3 dozen other nibs. Both end "jewels" are tight and in tact. 12.7cm capped.
