Era: 1930-1939
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3729: Sheaffer: OS Balance Set
As far as we're concerned, the Sheaffer Balance might be the most perfect fountain pen ever made. Elegant, simple and an amazing writer. When the average person thinks of a vintage fountain pen, the stereotype image that most likely comes to mind is that of the Sheaffer Balance. This model is the rarer Over Sized Sheaffer Balance. It has been restored with a new ink sac. The color is amazing, without more than 5% discoloration. No cracks! You'll only find brassing on the ball of the clip. Light wear on the cap and barrel. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm, medium line. The pencil shows a little more wear with scratches on the nose cone and brassing on the ball clip. Twist the tail cap to advance a 1.1mm lead. The lead mechanism retracts, too, but we don't think this lead is engaged in it, so you need to push the lead back in after the twist retraction. We find that the pen is the widest Sheaffer Balance we've ever held, but it only measures a capped length of 13.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 3721 Parker 51 Signet
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3721: Parker: 51 Signet
Parker 51 fountain pens were already the classy flagship of the company's line in the 1950s, but it really added an extra something else when it made the 14k gold-filled Signet edition! Our vintage pen is DENT FREE! The only wear on the barrel is where the cap closes over the nib! Everything else is either light wear or no wear. It has a great "pli-glass" sac that still looks fairly fresh and works well. You'll write a firm, extra-fine line with its original 14k gold nib. A real treat for using or displaying. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3708 Sheaffer Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 3708: Sheaffer: Clipper
Ahoy! Catch the Clipper on the way to a writing paradise. Sheaffer Clipper pens were near the top tier of the Snorkel line of fountain pens. These had the White Dot warranty and a "palladium silver" Triumph nib. We restored this pastel blue beauty with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It has some wear from use and an engraving for M.J. Hopkins. We have no idea who that was. It writes with a firm, extra-fine line. No cracks or dents. Some wear from use. Complete with box and instructions under the pad. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3700: Wahl-Eversharp: Personal Point
Eversharp made a stunner of a pen in the 1930s with its Personal Point line of pens. Focusing on nib customization, these pens originally had nibs that screwed in and out...10 years ahead of the more famous Esterbrook pens and Pelikan pens of today. Dozens of nib sizes and characteristics were available. This standard-size pen has a later model Skyline nib retrofit into the pen. YET, it is still a right-handed OBLIQUE STUB! It is a very small stub width, but it is still nice. We find it writes smoothly, if you're right-handed, with subtle line variation from XF to .5mm wide. No cracks mar the pen, but the cap is definitely darker than the barrel. Still, with that nib, it is a great bargain. Fully restored. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3701: Parker: Duofold
Parker Duofolds made such a splash in the 1920s because of their vibrant colors. Our jade green Parker Duofold Senior is fully restored, complete with several rare features. In spite of a little brassing on the cap band, it is a harder to find raised cap band!. You'll find a "Christmas tree" or "spear point" inkfeed under the 14k gold nib, which is also highly desired. ANNNNND, click the headline to see the close up of the rare "Lucky Curve" nib. It writes a firm extra-fine to fine line. It might have a little feedback, but it isn't bad. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it hasn't many flaws. No cracks. Only the discoloration that is clear in the photo. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3702 Parker Duofold Jr.
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3702: Parker: Duofold Jr.
Every jazz daddy in the 1920s needed cutting-edge pen set in orange, and this Parker Duofold Jr fountain pen in "red" hard rubber was the trend setter of the Roaring '20s. Fully restored with new ink sac, this vintage pen is nearly 100 years old with all of its original parts, including the classic "Christmas tree" inkfeed. Click the headline for close-ups. The cap is free of cracks, and it has the slightly raised cap band! The imprint is strong and crisp. The original 14k gold nib writes firm, smooth, juicy medium line. The only flaw on the pen is a teeny hairline crack from the breather down to the word "Duofold." The pencil is a slightly younger model Junior made from "permanite." It still works and comes with a 1.1mm lead, hardened old eraser and several back-up leads. The tail cap doesn't go 100% down but 98% isn't too bad.
Vintage Pens: 3698 Waterman 7 Red Ripple
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $475.00
Vintage Pens: 3698: Waterman: 7 Red Ripple
Modern lovers of vintage pens can't get enough of Waterman and its classic 14k gold nibs. Waterman's #7 pens are large pens that came in a rainbow of colors. The most important color on the pen was the ring on the cap. Each color signified a custom nib characteristic. Our red ripple Waterman's #7 is the Red Ring model. The Red was advertised as a medium point nib with semi-flex characteristics. Our pen has been restored with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel are about as close to mint as you will find. The trim has only 1% or 2% brassing. Click the headline for close-ups. You'll see a little scratch in the lip of the section where the nib fits in it. The nib also has a couple of scratches clustered together on the top tine of the photo. Writes great, as advertised, flexing to about 1.2mm. 14.2cm capped.

Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3697: Wahl-Eversharp: Personal Point Set
Before Pelikan. Before Esterbrook. Wahl-Eversharp created the first set of interchangeable nibs for a single pen. The Wahl-Eversharp Personal Point pen offered at least 14 different nib sizes. Unlike Esterbrook, these screw-in nibs were only intended for dealers to change so that they didn't have to carry dozens of different model pens with each of the different nib sizes at the height of the Great Depression. Imagine how a 1930s' Wahl-Eversharp executive's head would explode in our era of custom pen rediscovery. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. It comes with a "Manifold" 14k gold nib, which means it is firm to write through carbon paper. It writes a wet. medium-broad line with a hint of feedback. The pencil advances and retracts 1.1mm lead smoothly. Minimal wear, no cracks. Incredible pearl & black color with only minimal discoloration. Pen measures 13.3cm capped.
