Vintage Pens: 3163 Sheaffer Triumph
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3163: Sheaffer: Triumph
What's that up there? Is an arch?! Is it an MG?! NO! It's a Sheaffer Triumph! Made for only 4 years, Sheaffer TouchDown-filling pens were a remarkable leap forward in filling technology. This pneumatic filling system paved the way for the Sheaffer Snorkel. However, these Sheaffer Triumph pens are far easier to maintain than a Snorkel. Our Sheaffer Triumph has been restored with a new ink sac and O-ring. A gold-filled model, you will find very few traces of wear. No serious dents, dings, engravings or deep scratches. It has a little wear. It isn't mint. Still it is a great pen with an original 14k gold nib that writes a firm medium line with a hint of feedback. Very clean ink viewer window. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3169 Esterbrook 444 Dipless Pen
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 3169: Esterbrook: 444 Dipless Pen
Give your bed-and-breakfast, church or small business a classic vibe with a dip pen to sign the register. The pen is called "dipless" because its holder is an inkwell, and you have to dip it less because it always rests in ink. The dip/holder is an inkwell that keeps the pen wet and ready to fill out a check or other brief writing experience. The glass base is New Old Stock. The black cover has its original price sticker. It has not seen ink, as the instructions are still under the black part, which you must pry off to fill. The pen is dip only, and it comes complete with an upgraded 2968 nib, which we haven't dipped as it also appears to be NOS. Click the headline for a close-up photo. Complete with original box and instructions!
Vintage Pens: 3168 Gold Bond Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3168: Gold Bond: Fountain Pen
As the 1920s roared along in Chicago, this junior sized Gold Bond fountain pen was born. A handsome black-and-pearl design, it has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Its discoloration is obvious, but there are no cracks and only a little brassing. Its Warranted 14k gold nib is either a size 2 or 3. It writes a nice wet, medium line fairly smoothly. Gold Bond Pens were not related to the foot powder. They were a sub-brand of the National Pen Company, which was based in Chicago. 11cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3149 Parker Duofold Slim Junior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 3149: Parker: Duofold Slim Junior
We are particularly impressed by the color of this Parker Duofold Deluxe Jr. fountain pen in the streamlined motif. We've restored it with a new ink sac, and there no cracks or deep scratches. Maintaining near perfection is its cap, with only small spots of discoloration. The barrel didn't fair as well, but it isn't nearly as bad as many of these same pens. Its imprint is faint but legible. Writing a wet, medium line with a whisper of feedback is its 14k gold nib and Christmas tree inkfeed. Click the headline for close-ups. 11.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3162 Parker VP
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3162: Parker: VP
Parker VP fountain pens led the way for many new innovations for Parker in the 1960s. Only made for a couple years, these vintage pens introduced the adjustable nib that would be much more famous on the Parker 75, which replaced this pen in the line-up. It also experimented with the converter fill system. Although the pen says you can remove the aerometric-style converter, we highly recommend against it. The clear glass/plastic viewing window at its base is very fragile. Light wear afflicts the pen, but it isn't too bad for a daily user. No dents but the cap might look a little scratched up to some. The 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine line. Its cap closes all the way, but it doesn't take a lot of effort to slip it back off. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3161 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3161: Parker: 51
Revolutionizing pens once again, Parker released the Parker 51 to much fanfare stating that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time in 1941! Using the already popular Vacumatic filler, this pen sported a hooded nib that was both stylish and prevented quick dry-outs of the pen if left uncapped. Ours is date coded from the second quarter of 1946. It has been restored with a new diaphragm. Plus, it sports a sterling silver cap with an overlaying arrow pattern in the cap ring. The sterling has some wear but no serious dents. The hood and barrel are free of all but light wear. You can write a wet fine line with its 14k gold nib. A standard grey-plastic pearl jewel sits in the cap. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3160 Parker 51 Demi
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 3160: Parker: 51 Demi
Parker stunned the pen world in 1948 by releasing the pen with a new filling system: the aerometric filler. Going from complicated Vacumatic to the simple squeeze bar of the aerometric made the "most advanced" pen of the time even more popular with the people. This is a very early model of the shorter demi from 1949 in the somewhat hard-to-find forest green with a 12k gold filled cap. The original silicon sac is still in good working order on this vintage pen that was made to last. The barrel is nearly perfect with minimal wear, but the bottom of the hood looks like it skidded for half a second on sand paper. The cap is dent-free and with only a scratch and light wear. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3159 Waterman 55
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3159: Waterman: 55
Start the new year with a grail pen. We have a fully restored Waterman 55 fountain pen that will knock your socks off. This is one of the harder-to-find larger orange-hard-rubber ripple pens. It also comes with a slightly rarer size 5 manifold nib. A new ink sac is installed in the pen. You can see only a nick or two of blemishing on the vintage pen. The mid-barrel imprint is worn but legible, and the end-barrel imprint is clear–as is the 55 on the flat tail end. Minimal brassing, no cracks! An "18k Filled" imprint is visible on the pocket clip. Manifold means firm for writing on carbon paper. Thus, this lovely size 5 manifold nib of 14k gold has no flex. However, it does write a beautiful, wet medium line. 14cm capped.
