Vintage Pens: 4281: Esterbrook: SJ-9461
Experience the smoothness of the ultimate upgrade nib in the Esterbrook line: the 9000 series nibs. Our Esterbrook SJ fountain pen comes with a very smooth extra-fine steel nib numbered 9461. The best part about these nibs is that they easily unscrew and can be replaced with at least three dozen other point sizes! We restored this pen with a fresh ink sac. No cracks, clean imprint, light wear from use. Double jewels are intact. Come complete with a matching pencil. You click the tail cap to advance the lead. Sadly, the pencil saw the damage of someone removing a name from the barrel. Pencil works well. Pen measures 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4280: Esterbrook: J-2556
Few brands can claim to have taught an entire generation of Americans to write with a fountain pen, but Esterbrook J-series pens can make that boast. Millions of teens in the 1950s were required to use Esterbrook pens in their high schools, shorthand classes and journalism schools. Handsome, affordable and easily customized these were insanely popular pens. The nibs simply unscrewed and had dozens of affordable point-size replacements. We restored this Esterbrook J-model pen with a new ink sac. No cracks mar the cap or barrel. Minimal wear can be found. Its steel 2556 nib was considered an upgrade nib. You will find it is a firm extra-fine writer with a little feedback. Click the headline for a close-up. Its matching pencil is an early clicker in just about as good a condition. It still works and comes with spare leads. The pencil has a dimple jewel. Pen measures 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4279: Esterbrook: SJ-1551
Surprising writers with its delightfully smooth broad nib, this rich, deep coppery Esterbrook SJ fountain pen is a wonderful addition to any writer's collection. We restored it with a new ink sac. No cracks or significant damage mars the luster of the cap and barrel. Coming with a steel 1551 nib, we think someone altered rigid extra-fine point to be a super smooth broad nib some time during the past 7 decades. Clean imprint. Complete double jewels. A great daily writer or even a display piece. As the SJ model, it is the shorter, more slender version. 11.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4272: Waterman: 56
Falling out of a time-and-space worm hole and on to our laps from 1920s New York is a New Old Stock Waterman 56. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. However, it is the freshest looking vintage pen from this era that we've ever seen. It is shiny black hard rubber. No cracks, scratches or bite marks. (Okay, there's one very subtle, easily missed scratch to the right of the pocket clip.) The golden trim is free of brassing. The imprints are impeccable. Even the flat tail's number imprint of 56 still has its original orange paint! You also get the original 14k gold nib that writes a smooth, fine line. Click the headline to see it is stamped as a manifold nib. Manifold means it is a firm nib meant for writing through carbon copies. Like Mary Poppins, it is practically perfect in every way. 14.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4277: Waterman: Plain Golden Pencil
New Old Stock. We got this Waterman pencil from a collection of mostly stickered new pens from the 1920s. No dents, minimal wear. It looks brand new. This vintage pencil is not marked for any gold content. The mechanism pushes out lead, but it doesn't seem to retract lead. Instead the barrel is very snug on the leads, which don't come out. Spare leads are in the tail piece that looks like where an eraser should be. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4271: Wahl-Eversharp: Franken Desk Pen
Looking for a bargain on a desk pen? Look no further than our Wahl-Eversharp Franken Pen. It has a gold seal on the orange woodgrain barrel made of hardened rubber. Yet, the taper and section are black celluloid. Its 14k gold nib is likely from a Wahl-Eversharp Skyline. It writes a nice medium line with only a little feedback. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. It could use a nice base if you have one. A fun vintage pen. 21cm.

Vintage Pens: 4268: Sheaffer: LAC
There is no sticker on this New Old Stock Sheaffer LAC pencil, but it looks pretty amazing for having been made in 1925. It appears to be an early "Radite" pencil. Click the headline for a close-up of the pencil. This is a 1.1mm lead-using pencil. The lead inside it seems to have been used once or twice and still moves up and down the pencil smoothly. Absolutely no brassing. Jostled a couple times over the past 96 years, the pencil shows only the lightest of wear. Pull out the gold-filled end cap to reveal a hardened eraser (slightly used) and the chamber of spare leads hidden by the eraser. 13cm.

The lead inside it seems to have been used once or twice and still moves up and down the pencil smoothly. Absolutely no brassing.
