Vintage Pens: 3438 Sheaffer #3
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3438: Sheaffer: #3
Sheaffer was rocking the pen world in the 1920s with writing instruments such as this Sheaffer #3. Will you like the gold-filled sleeve with an art deco design or the flexi #3 14k gold nib better? Either way the pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No initials engraved, but it has a couple nasty little dents in the cap, which you can see better when you click the headline for a close-up photo. The rest of the pen is nearly minty fresh. Only a couple teeny tiny bits of brassing on the clip and lever. Its nib writes a genuinely flexi...nearly wet noodle...line from fine to 1.5mm. We especially get a kick out of the "Sheaffer-Clip" clip and "Self-Filling" nib. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3440 Wahl-Eversharp Doric
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 3440: Wahl-Eversharp: Doric
Among the legendary pens of the hobby's golden era is the Wahl-Eversharp Doric. Our vintage pen is an oversized number that has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It has some light wear, but it is in great condition overall. No cracks, brassing or krazing. It has a strong Eversharp imprint on the cap. The inkfeed is curiously marked "M" and has hand etched "D4001." The large 14k gold nib might be an Executive Skyline replacement. HOWEVER, it has FLEX. The nib goes from extra fine to about 1mm. It isn't a true wet noodle, but it is a little more flexi than a semi-flex. Expect a little drag or feedback but not a ton. 14.1cm.
Vintage Pens: 3437 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3437: Parker: Duofold
Streamlined senior Parker Duofolds are in demand these days. There were fewer of them, and jade green ones that haven't totally discolored up the rareness ante. Not only does this one look good, it has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It sports both an original 14k gold nib AND a "Christmas Tree"/"Spear" inkfeed. The section is friction fit, not like the more prevalent screw-in versions. Click the headline for close-ups. You can even read the barrel imprint. The barrel is darker than the cap, which isn't evenly discolored. However, you can still very nice green, as this seems to be a later model. Its nib writes a sensuously smooth, wet medium line. No cracks, no brassing. Light wear from use. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3433 Wahl-Eversharp Deco Band
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $550.00
Vintage Pens: 3433: Wahl-Eversharp: Deco Band
Oversized pens such as this vintage Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Decoband, but when you add in a flexi "Signature" nib, it becomes irresistible. Be the envy of your pen club with this woodgrain, red-hard-rubber giant. Restored with a new ink sac, our vintage pen is a stunner whose cap and barrel crack and major blemish free. Click the headline to see a close-up of the nib. On the bottom-right side of the nib, where it goes into the section, you'll see an odd dent in 14k gold, but it doesn't seem to effect the writing. You'll write with a little feedback, as you flex the nib from fine to roughly 1.5mm wide. There's a deep scratch on the inkfeed under the nib, but nobody spends much time staring at the inkfeed. The lever has a little brassing. Some of the woodgrain black is a little discolored on the cap. Overall, the pen is in great shape. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3125 Conklin M31
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1900-1909
Price: $750.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3125: Conklin: M31
When Susie Thomas graduated high school in 1905, her parents gave her a Conklin M31 as a gift to help her earn her degree in business college and then hit the working world. Susie must have been quite the modern to plan on a career in business at the turn of the 20th century. We received this handsome pen from her granddaughter. It is very rare for us to know the complete origins of a pen, and this pen is very rare in that it is perfectly preserved with its long, tapered slip cap. No cracks. No significant marks or wear on the chased black hard rubber. The gold filled trim has more wear. The imprints are all legible, although the M31 is weakest where the cap posted. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. We also replaced the very broken original nib with a size 2 14k gold Conklin (replacement) nib. It writes a fairly smooth, FLEXI line that goes from fine to 2mm. Chocolate hazing. Monogramed gold-filled ring. 16.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3206 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3206: Sheaffer: Imperial
Sheaffer Imperial pens were really the last mass-produced fountain pen by Sheaffer intended for the masses. This handsome 12k gold-filled model features the best of this model. There's a dent on the tail and a little brassing, but the rest of the pen is in great condition, with only light wear on the rest of the cap and barrel. You'll find it is an early Sheaffer converter pen. It comes with a working converter, and it also takes modern Sheaffer ink cartridges. Write a smooth medium line with its 14k gold inlaid nib. Click the headline for a great close-up. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1664 Conklin 75
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1910-1919
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 1664: Conklin: 75
Mark Twain called the Conklin Crescent line of fountain pens a profanity saver, as the pens wouldn't roll off his desk. Our Conklin Crescent 75 was the granddaddy of the Crescent line. It is freakin' huge with the largest monster of a 14k gold size 7 nib we've ever seen! Click the headline for close-up of the nib and the cap band with a Freemason's symbol. We restored this black-chased-hard-rubber pen with a tanker of a new ink sac. Given the 1918 patent mark on the clip, we suspect this pen was made in the late teens or early 1920s. You won't find any cracks in the rubber. Its chasing is faded and there is chocolate hazing, but the pen is in excellent condition. True, the trim has a little brassing, but it shouldn't be too distracting. You will LOVE the semi-flex to flex nib! 14.3cm 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.
