Vintage Pens: 3969: Conklin: #2 Gold Filled Filigree
Vintage pen fans should go gaga over our Conklin #2 in gold-filled filigree. We restored this stunner of a classic crescent-filler with a new ink sac. Yet, its exterior needed no restoration. Marked "14kt * 1/5", the gold-filled exterior is nearly perfect with a floral pattern and only the lightest of wear. No cracks or marks in the black hard rubber, either. You'll only find chocolate hazing in the spaces between the filigree. Its safety ring is whole and slides around the pen easily. If that isn't enough to get you excited, it has a flexi (but not wet noodle) nib that writes an extra-fine line to just over 1mm. Not bad for a century-old 14k gold nib. It has a little feedback. No brassing on the clip. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3893 Sheaffer Craftsman PARTS
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 3893: Sheaffer: Craftsman PARTS
Just getting into vintage pens? Maybe this Sheaffer Craftsman from the 1940s will be a good starter. It has heavy wear on the cap and barrel, but we gave it a nice new ink sac. There is a crack in the top of the threads, which you can see if you click the headline for close-ups. It has a nice extra-fine, two-tone 14k gold nib, a clear section and lever-filling system for harvesting. If you want to break all the rules, you can super glue the section into the barrel and make it a daily driver that you can never again open without breaking. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3877 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3877: Parker: 51
Amber jewels are some of our favorite rare traits in Parker 51 pens. Our Parker 51 set features a burgundy fountain pen, a 1/10 12k gold filled cap and an amber jewel on top. Click the headline for a close-up of the jewel. This is a great aerometric filler with minimal wear on the hood and barrel. A couple of dents were pushed out of the cap, which looks really nice. It sports pinstripes that angle into steep mountain peaks. Its original 14k gold nib writes a dry, fine line with a little feedback. The mechanical, click pencil matches almost perfectly, except it has a grey jewel, and a little ding on the back of the cap. You click the back cap to advance a .9mm lead. It works great and comes with a hardened eraser and extra leads. Somebody did write in asking if the FP jewel was a "dead" jewel instead of an amber one. I'm not sure I'd know the difference, but this one is decidedly more yellow/orange than standard grey/pearl versions we have here.
Vintage Pens: 3872 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3872: Parker: Duofold
Streamlined senior Parker Duofold pens in green that aren't hideously discolored are a treat. Our vintage pen is a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it will be a great writer. On the list for the good Dr. Jekyll, this pen has very nice color with only a ring of discoloration behind the cap threads on the barrel of the pen. Also in Dr. Jekyll's favor is an original price sticker on the streamlined tail blind cap. On 3 lines it reads "107 / Med. / $7.00." Mr. Hyde shows his ugly face when one recognizes the cap has only one of its two cap bands. A couple dozen bite marks also showcase the evils of Mr. Hyde. Buuut, the good Dr. Jekyll returns with the original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib that writes an extremely smooth, wet medium line. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3740 Conklin Sub Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3740: Conklin: Sub Endura
It took us a while to track down some answers for this pen. We finally discovered, courtesy of David Isaacson's inimitable website, that this was an unnamed model Conklin pen. He calls it the Conklin Sub Endura, as it was neither a Symetrik nor an Endura. It was meant as a lesser model for those who couldn't afford Conklin's higher end pens. While he had seen many of these pens in the past, he had only seen this maroon-and-pearl-grey pen once before. Ours is fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks and minimal wear. Its only real problem is brassing on the cap bands. Write a nice fine line with a hint of flex with this original 14k gold nib. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3383 Sheaffer Triumph Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3383: Sheaffer: Triumph Autograph
Sheaffer added a new special feature to its rarer models of the 1940s...a big solid gold band for etching a customers autograph on it. This is the Sheaffer Triumph Autograph in PRISTINE condition. No autograph or other engravings. Minimal wear. It was restored with a fresh ink sac, and the viewer window is still clear enough to see its light green factory freshness. For its era, it is a big pen, too. No skinny-pen-hand-cramping action here. You'll also get a larger, early version of the conical "Triumph" nib in two-tone 14k gold. It writes a firm, fine line. We can see where some people say it has feedback, but it also is well within normal for Sheaffer firm fines. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2284 Sheaffer Secretary
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 2284: Sheaffer: Secretary
Behold the oversized Sheaffer Secretary vintage pen. A real grail pen. Made of an eye-catching red radite in circa 1926, you'll even get the original 14k Secretary nib. Click the headline to see the special design. Effectively a Sheaffer Lifetime, it was 20% cheaper, had a size 7 nib instead of the size 8 and didn't include the lifetime warranty. However, it was every bit as satisfying. These days, the Sheaffer Secretary is a hard-to-find vintage pen...especially an oversized model in this pen's condition. It has only a little wear to the cap and barrel. The ink sac has been replaced. The imprint is fairly well faded. Its biggest flaws are two hairline cracks in the lip of the pen. In some lights, you can see two slightly discolored/darkened rings around the cap that are only a shade or two darker than the cap. Only a little brassing on the cap band. The nib writes a firm, true extra-fine line, with a little feedback. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3164 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3164: Conklin: Endura
Conklin Endura pens were among the best of the 1920s. Our standard-size vintage pen sports a stunning, shimmering bronze-and-black marbling with yellow-painted rings at either end of the pen. We are pretty sure the yellow is original factory paint. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. The gold-plated trim shows about 3% brassing on the cap band and 10% to 15% brassing on the pocket clip. The imprint is clean and clear. Bite marks mar the tail a bit, and there is some light general wear on the rest of the pen. No cracks, but there is a tiny chip in the lip of the cap. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, wet medium line that sings a little as it writes. 12.3cm capped.
