Vintage Pens: 3363 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 3363: Parker: 51
Behold the exceedingly rare Parker 51 in PLUM (purple). It was only made between 1948 and '49 when Parker altered their pens from vacumatic fillers to aerometric fillers. This color was quickly discontinued, while all of the other new colors were kept for as long as the pen was in production until 1972! Our incredible vintage pen has a 1949 date code and looks as if it was never filled! The pli-glass ink sac is perfectly clear. We filled it for two squeezes of clear water and only a little blue ink came out from what likely was a dip. The pen has light wear, which is more prevalent on the Lustraloy cap than hood and barrel. The original 14k gold nib writes a very nice medium line with a little feedback. Comes with a box. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3312 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 3312: Parker: 45
The last great mass-produced fountain pen for the masses might well have been the Parker 45. Affordable, durable and dependable, these were basic fountain pens for the general public, when the general public was still interested in fountain pens in the U.S. Our vintage pen is in nearly like-new conditions. We don't think the pen has seen ink. There are a couple teeny scratches on the brushed-steel cap and barrel, and that is it for damage. It has no converter, but it can still use modern Parker ink cartridges and some Parker converters. It has a steel nib marked medium, which we haven't dipped as it looks pristine and uninked. 13.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3390: Parker: Vacumatic Slender Junior
You need to click the headline to see this close-up of the gold "Parker Vacumatic" nib! It is rare to find ones that actually list the model name on the nib. Better yet, it writes a FLEXI extra fine to 2mm wide! Yes, a rare Parker flex nib! It isn't a wet noodle, but it pushes the envelope between semi-flex and regular flex. But wait, there's more. It is a 1936 Parker Vacumatic Slender Junior with a lockdown filler! Naturally it is fully restored with a new diaphragm. All the jewels are the golden pearl design...not black. No cracks, minimal wear on both writing instruments. The matching pencil uses 1.1mm lead, and it includes an early "lead cartridge" refill set with a hardened eraser inside the pencil. Stunning. Pen measures 12cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3391 Parker Vacumatic Jeweler’s Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3391: Parker: Vacumatic Jeweler’s Deluxe
Azure pearl Parker Vacumatics automatically inspire a Pavlovian response from us. We nearly drown ourselves when we spied this 1942 Jeweler's Deluxe model. Stacked coins is another name for the rarer cap band. No initials spoil the purity of any part of the pen or pencil! Both vintage writing instruments feature minimal wear and a single small dimple in each cap band. The pencil works well and is loaded with a .9mm lead. The vintage pen has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. Plus, the pen has the aluminum speedline filler. You can see through the barrel, still, but it does have a fair degree of ambering. Its original feed and 14k gold nib write smooth, wet medium line. No cracks, strong imprint. Cap jewels are black. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3373 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3373: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Sheaffer Lifetime pens just don't quit. We are convinced they will write well until the day it disintegrates from extreme old age...and even then you will be able to find a new pen to stick the nib in and write for eternity. We restored this junior size Sheaffer Lifetime with a new ink sac. It has mild discoloration but heavy brassing on the straight clip and cap band. You'll find a tiny bit of chipping in the lip of the cap, and it has a crack under the left top side of the clip, where it goes into the cap. A little TLC might be required, but the pen is no where close to disintegration. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, firm extra-fine line that just won't quit. It is a bargain and a stunner for the price. 11.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3383 Sheaffer Triumph Autograph
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3383: Sheaffer: Triumph Autograph
Sheaffer added a new special feature to its rarer models of the 1940s...a big solid gold band for etching a customers autograph on it. This is the Sheaffer Triumph Autograph in PRISTINE condition. No autograph or other engravings. Minimal wear. It was restored with a fresh ink sac, and the viewer window is still clear enough to see its light green factory freshness. For its era, it is a big pen, too. No skinny-pen-hand-cramping action here. You'll also get a larger, early version of the conical "Triumph" nib in two-tone 14k gold. It writes a firm, fine line. We can see where some people say it has feedback, but it also is well within normal for Sheaffer firm fines. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3364 Parker Duofold Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3364: Parker: Duofold Senior
Parker Duofolds are the ultimate capstone to any vintage pen collection. For many, these were the pens that got them started on antique pens. Back in the 1920s, these were the most popular status symbol pens that were also extremely functional and hard working. A flashy tool in jade green, it was never the less the ultimate tool for writers and business people. Our senior sized Parker Duofold is fully restored with a new ink sac. It sports a rarer raised cap band. Unfortunately it has some obvious brassing, like the clip ball. No cracks mar the pen, even if it is somewhat discolored. It features a rare original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. Its large, original 14k gold "Lucky Curve" nib writes a smooth, firm medium line. Great for heavier handed writers, as the nib requires a little pressure to perform. Barrel imprint is strong but mentions nothing about "Duofold" or "Lucky Curve." 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3387 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3387: Parker: 51
In 1941, Parker released the 51 fountain pen...so named as it was 10 years ahead of its time. Not only was it 10 years ahead of its time, it remains one of the most beloved vintage pens today! This is an earlier model from the late 1940s. It has a handsome sterling silver cap with minimal traces of wear. The vacuum filler has been restored with a new diaphragm. The blue barrel and hood are in great shape, except for some visible wear around where the cap snugged against the hood and barrel. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm extra-fine line.
