Vintage Pens: 3177: Esterbrook: J-2556
Bringing it back to the brand that has hooked millions of fountain pen fans through out the country, our Esterbrook J-model pen is a crowd pleaser. It was the pen that helped teach the Baby Boomers how to write with an ink pen in school. Requested frequently by high schools, journalism schools and shorthand classes, the Esterbrook was an affordable pen with an easily customized nib that screws in and out of the pen. Dozens of different models of nibs were created. Ours is a steel 2556 model that was advertized as an upgrade over the 1000 series. This one writes a smooth, wet medium to broad line when you find the sweet spot. (It was advertised as a fine nib...oh well.) We restored this pen with a fresh ink sac. No cracks, but it does have a big scratch near the top of the lever. The pocket clip slides around in a circle, but it won't come off. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3167 Sheaffer PFM I

Era: 1950-1959
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3167: Sheaffer: PFM I
Even the base model of the Sheaffer PFM line is better than soooo many other pens from the late 1950s and early '60s. Our blue Sheaffer PFM I has been restored with a new ink sack, O-ring and point seal. It has wear from use, but it is in good, working condition. The good news is that there are no cracks in this Pen For Men. Its inlaid palladium silver nib writes firm (true) extra-fine line. The pen has a nice wide grip that helps prevent cramping as you write. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3166: Sheaffer: PFM II
Sheaffer's Pen for Men was seemingly the brand's equivalent of the Ford Edsel. It had a fairly short production run and is highly coveted decades after its release. Our's is a Sheaffer PFM II. That means it has an inlaid palladium silver nib and a steel cap. Fully restored with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal this handsome vintage pen is ready to rock your world. Okay, so it has some wear from use back in the day...tell us you don't want this to be your daily driver?! It writes with an incredible medium nib. If you click the headline for the close-up photos, you might see a black line stretching from the end of the nib to the section-barrel divide. It is not a crack, as we can't feel anything with the thumbnail test. The thick barrel makes writing without cramping a breeze. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3164 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
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.
Vintage Pens: 3163 Sheaffer Triumph
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
SOLD!
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
SOLD!
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: 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.
