Vintage Pens: 3893 Sheaffer Craftsman PARTS
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 3893: Sheaffer: Craftsman PARTS
Just getting into vintage pens? Maybe this Sheaffer Craftsman from the 1940s will be a good starter. It has heavy wear on the cap and barrel, but we gave it a nice new ink sac. There is a crack in the top of the threads, which you can see if you click the headline for close-ups. It has a nice extra-fine, two-tone 14k gold nib, a clear section and lever-filling system for harvesting. If you want to break all the rules, you can super glue the section into the barrel and make it a daily driver that you can never again open without breaking. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3883 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3883: Parker: Duofold
Will it be the burgundy-marble streamlined design or the rare two-toned nib that creates instant salivation in fans of the original Parker Duofold? Click the headline for close-ups to decide for yourself. This vintage pen is a Junior size set that has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks will be found on either instrument. The pen cap has a couple short deep scratches, but they should not deter most collectors and users. The imprint on the barrel is clear. Still working is the 1.1mm lead pencil that has a classic refill cassette in it with one spare lead and a retro-fitted fresh eraser. The pencil shows wear from use, but it has been a reliable friend of writers for nearly 100 years! The rare two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback.
Vintage Pens: 3882 Parker 51 Flighter Set
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3882: Parker: 51 Flighter Set
Let your writing take flight with this brushed stainless steel Parker 51 Flighter set. Another of the more-coveted variants of the Parker 51 line, this vintage pen set is a fountain pen and pencil set. You won't find any dents or egregious wear. It has light scratches from use, but at writing distance these classic writing instruments look great. Fill the fountain pen with an aerometric filling system that is in great working order. The matching pencil is an early click model using .9mm leads. Click the tail cap to advance the lead. It includes its original hardened eraser and spare leads. The pen's original 14k gold nib writes a dry, fine line.
Vintage Pens: 3877 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3877: Parker: 51
Amber jewels are some of our favorite rare traits in Parker 51 pens. Our Parker 51 set features a burgundy fountain pen, a 1/10 12k gold filled cap and an amber jewel on top. Click the headline for a close-up of the jewel. This is a great aerometric filler with minimal wear on the hood and barrel. A couple of dents were pushed out of the cap, which looks really nice. It sports pinstripes that angle into steep mountain peaks. Its original 14k gold nib writes a dry, fine line with a little feedback. The mechanical, click pencil matches almost perfectly, except it has a grey jewel, and a little ding on the back of the cap. You click the back cap to advance a .9mm lead. It works great and comes with a hardened eraser and extra leads. Somebody did write in asking if the FP jewel was a "dead" jewel instead of an amber one. I'm not sure I'd know the difference, but this one is decidedly more yellow/orange than standard grey/pearl versions we have here.
Vintage Pens: 3552 Sheaffer Targa
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 3552: Sheaffer: Targa
Yep. We are calling it. In our humble world view, Sheaffer Targas are now vintage pens. The early ones are more than 40 years old, and the design looks handsome as it is. We love Targas, to be sure. Vintage is a title of distinction, and this Sheaffer Targa rollerball pen, electroplated in gold, is distinguished. No dents or deep scratches, only light wear from use. Well, that is until you get to the very discolored black section. We tried polishing it out without success. No cracks, just discolored. It uses Sheaffer rollerball refills, but we are, unfortunately, out of them. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3872 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3872: Parker: Duofold
Streamlined senior Parker Duofold pens in green that aren't hideously discolored are a treat. Our vintage pen is a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it will be a great writer. On the list for the good Dr. Jekyll, this pen has very nice color with only a ring of discoloration behind the cap threads on the barrel of the pen. Also in Dr. Jekyll's favor is an original price sticker on the streamlined tail blind cap. On 3 lines it reads "107 / Med. / $7.00." Mr. Hyde shows his ugly face when one recognizes the cap has only one of its two cap bands. A couple dozen bite marks also showcase the evils of Mr. Hyde. Buuut, the good Dr. Jekyll returns with the original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib that writes an extremely smooth, wet medium line. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3740 Conklin Sub Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3740: Conklin: Sub Endura
It took us a while to track down some answers for this pen. We finally discovered, courtesy of David Isaacson's inimitable website, that this was an unnamed model Conklin pen. He calls it the Conklin Sub Endura, as it was neither a Symetrik nor an Endura. It was meant as a lesser model for those who couldn't afford Conklin's higher end pens. While he had seen many of these pens in the past, he had only seen this maroon-and-pearl-grey pen once before. Ours is fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks and minimal wear. Its only real problem is brassing on the cap bands. Write a nice fine line with a hint of flex with this original 14k gold nib. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3726 Parker 75
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 3726: Parker: 75
Parker 75 pens could probably be considered the last daily, luxury fountain pen put out in mass production of the fountain pen era. Originally released in the 1960s, this is a more modern French-made Parker 75. We love the chrome barley pattern. The pen is in good general condition, but there are a couple little dents in the barrel. The biggest one is easy to miss, as it is no larger than the head of one of those colorful sewing pins, so we circled it in the photo. The nasty red oval makes it look worse that it is. Almost nobody would notice it at a casual glance. The pen fills with cartridges or a modern Parker converter, which is included. The nib can be rotated for a better writing angle with the ergonomical section grip. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. 12.9cm capped.
