Vintage Pens: 3328 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3328: Parker: 45
Rarely do ballpoints appear on the vintage pens pages, but we have a 50-year-old classic in this Parker 45. It is in remarkably good shape with only a little wear from use. No cracks, dents or deep scratches. (Just light surface scratches, which you can see in the photo if you look closely.) Our favorite part about the pen is that its whole cap serves as the clicker, unlike a Parker Jotter, which has only that little button on the top that clicks. This working blue-and-brushed steel pen comes with a working blue Parker ink refill. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3329 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3329: Parker: 45
Rarely do ballpoints appear on the vintage pens pages, but we have a 50-year-old classic in this Parker 45. It is in remarkably good shape with only a couple little marks of wear. Our favorite part about the pen is that its whole cap serves as the clicker, unlike a Parker Jotter, which has only that little button on the top that clicks. This working black-and-brushed steel pen comes with a black Parker ink refill. 12.8cm capped.
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: 3439 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $175.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3439: Parker: Vacumatic
Vintage filling systems are among our favorites, and we especially love the Parker Vacumatic. This model from 1945 is a very handsome golden pearl. We restored it with a new diaphragm. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib and pen. It has a blue diamond on the clip, which meant it had a lifetime warranty for the life of the original owner. This is the "major" size, not maxima or debutante.
Vintage Pens: 3419 Esterbrook SJ-1555 Gregg
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3419: Esterbrook: SJ-1555 Gregg
It is a pretty safe bet to think this attractive ruby red Esterbrook SJ fountain pen once belonged to a secretary or journalist. Why? The 1555 Gregg nib was designed for practitioners of shorthand via the Gregg method. We restored this "Short J" (SJ) model vintage pen with a new ink sac. The old J-bar spring inside broke at the J, but it was reinstalled and seems to work fine. No cracks. Just general wear from use.
Vintage Pens: 3420 Esterbrook J-9668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3420: Esterbrook: J-9668
Come see the pen that taught a generation of Americans how to write with an ink pen. Esterbrook pens were the most requested by high schools, business schools and shorthand schools because they were both affordable and easily customized. Esterbrook nibs unscrew and are interchangeable. Plus, the company made more than 3 dozen different point sizes. We restored this classic black Esterbrook J model with a new ink sac. It is the widest sized of the Esterbrook line. Ours clearly has some wear from use. Plus, the tail jewel has some pretty big chips in it, and you can see the clip doesn't rest flush against the cap. (It is on securely, but it spins.) The 9668 nib was an upgrade nib that writes a nice, wet medium line. Some people might find it has a shade of feedback, but isn't bad. In fact, it really won't bother 90% of people who know Esterbrook nibs.
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: 3441 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3441: Parker: Duofold
Unless there were a few Parker Lady Duofolds made with a pocket clip, it is quite possible this classic mandarin yellow model is a married pair. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. There's no hiding the crack in the lip of the cap, but you can see it even better when you click the headline. All the same, it seems very stable, as long as you don't post the cap on the tail. Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds are the rarest of the mainline production pens because many got unexpectedly brittle with age. Often crumbling into pieces. However, pens that made it this far, seem to be pretty stable, and this one appears to be, too. It has some wear, in addition to the crack, but it also has an original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. Its original 14k gold nib writes a nice, firm XF to fine line with a little feedback that isn't particularly disruptive. 11.5cm capped.
