Vintage Pens: 3994 Sheaffer 5-30 Combo
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 3994: Sheaffer: 5-30 Combo
Color perfection is almost achieved by this somewhat rare Sheaffer 5-30 Combo. Half fountain pen and half pencil, this is a great, all-purpose writing instrument. The combo writing instrument craze really was going strong in the 1930s and '40s, but Sheaffer mostly stayed out of it. We are glad to report only a small amount of discoloration on the otherwise perfect pearl & black model. It has some light wear but no cracks or serious scratches. The lever seems a little con-caved on one corner. 1 little clamp line on each side of section. A teeny bit of brassing at the end of the pencil cone. The pen is fully restored with a new ink sac, and the pencil is in working order with a lead inside it, as well as an eraser. The 5-30 meant it was a $5 instrument with a 30-year guarantee. You'll write a very smooth extra-fine line with its original 14k gold nib that also has a razor's edge as you write. Almost not quite feedback, just a smooth, sharp point. 15.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3969 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 3969: Parker: 51
Time to cash in on that grail pen you've always wanted, Parker 51 fans. We have a nearly mint condition Yellowstone/Mustard Yellow Parker 51. There's hardly a trace of wear outside of where the cap snugs against the hood, and even that is feint. When we opened the pen to put in a fresh diaphragm, there was nothing in the barrel. A previous owner had already given the pen as thorough a cleaning as possible. As such, we didn't install.a new diaphragm. We suspect it has seen ink at some point, as light through the pen shows some dark spots under the hood, but, holy cats, this pen is still worthy of a museum. Its gold-filled cap saw more wear. There are a few dimples and scratches. We replaced the missing top jewel with a new, reproduction jewel. Its 14k gold nib is either an extra fine or fine. It could use a really good tuning to become a daily writer, but we suspect most people will want this vintage pen as a display piece.
Vintage Pens: 3963 Sheaffer Lady Skripsert
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3963: Sheaffer: Lady Skripsert
We need the glamour of the 1950s more than ever, and our Sheaffer Lady Skripsert pen in Brocade Silver with Brilliants is a great way to light the way. Suitable for a princess, we offer this classic vintage pen complete with its original box. The box is marked "Xmas 1959 from Kelly" on the back in beautiful cursive writing. The cap of the pen is nearly perfect except for a mark on the very top where it might have been dropped. The barrel has a couple black spots and wear on the tip of the back end. All of the "brilliants" are accounted for, but one is much darker than the others. Its 14k gold nib is marked F9, and it writes a very firm, thick fine line with a bit of feedback. These pens used a slimmer version of the Sheaffer cartridge that is no longer in production today. However, the pen comes with a used cartridge that you can refill with a syringe. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3966: Conklin: Endura Senior
Lapis lazuli looks like moonlight glinting off the ocean on this stunning blue Conklin Endura Senior. A classic from Toledo, Ohio, this vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, no brassing...only minimal wear, this pen belongs in a museum. We did not repaint the orange trim rings, and, as far as we know, it is original paint. Its original 14k gold nib writes a very firm, fine line that leans closer to extra fine. Click the headline for a great close-up photo. Its oversized zen makes for easier gripping. A phenomenal pen for use or display. 13.4cm capped.

Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 3965: Conklin: 20NL
MERRY CHRISTMAS! Our New Old Stock Conklin 20NL comes complete with its original price sticker and holiday-themed box! Black chased hard rubber is perfect, chocolate-free and crisply imprinted, just like it rolled out of the factory in Toledo. Neither cracks nor scratches blemish this vintage pen wonder. You will love its 14k gold nib. It starts with an extra-fine line and flexes to more than 1mm wide. It isn't a wet noodle, but it is flexi. Click the headline for close-ups. While it might look as if it has a crack near the base of the nib, under a loupe, it is only a scratch. We replaced the original ink sac, but this is a museum-worthy pen, if ever there was one. The box shows age, wear and a few ink spots. The right side is blown out, and the left side is showing some corner tears. 13.5cm 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. Filing it under "Nobody's Perfect," the skirted nib has a little seepage where the gold meets the plastic. We have tried sealing it with rubber cement to no avail. As it is a great writer, be sure just not to hold it that low, and you'll be fine. When full, keep it nib up when not in use, and that will also minimize seepage. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3969 Conklin #2 Gold Filled Filigree
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
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.
