Vintage Pens: 4649 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $20.00
Vintage Pens: 4649: Parker: 45
Need a great workhorse pen? Might we recommend the Parker 45? With its slick late 1950s, early 1960s design these are just great all around daily drivers. This aquamarine 45 has seen a lot of action, as evidenced by the heavy wear on the barrel, but it sure isn't ready to retire. We put in a brand new authentic original converter, and it also takes modern Parker cartridges and converters. Its still nib is smooth with the light touch you should use while writing with a vintage pen. The nib is marked F for fine, but it leans closer to extra fine. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4646 Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4646: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal
Back in the day, all the major pen companies had their lifetime warranties. Wahl-Eversharp had the double-check gold seal. This Gold Seal ringtop set is especially nice. The pencil has perfect pearl-and-black celluloid and is in great working order with a 1.1mm lead. There are a couple scratches on the nose cone and some brassing on the ring-top tassie. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. It has some discoloration in the cap and barrel but no cracks or significant scratches. What stands out is the 14k gold nib! Click the headline for a close-up. Imprinted is the magical word: "Semiflex." True, the cosmetics of the nib aren't good with lots of shallow scratches. However, the nib still performs well! You will write from fine to 1mm wide with a little expected feedback. It is a little larger for a ring-top pen at 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 0566 Sheaffer 400
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0566: Sheaffer: 400
Vintage pencils make math and crossword puzzles way more fun. Take this Sheaffer 400 pencil for example. It is an early devotee of the .9mm lead. You advance and retract it with a simple twist of the tail cap. It has some wear from use, but most of us do after 80 years. The worst of it is a few little scratches in the nose cone, which you can see in the photo. The carmine red pattern is one of the rarer color schemes from this era. The clip is on tightly. It no longer has its eraser, but it comes with a spare lead. 13.3cm.
Vintage Pens: 4636 Sheaffer FrankenSnorkel
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4636: Sheaffer: FrankenSnorkel
It's A-LIVE! It's A-LIVE! We were sitting at the work bench the other day staring into the abyss of Sheaffer Snorkel parts that we have and were happy to discover we could create a complete pen from burgundy parts. And so we have. It is in great working order with a fresh ink sac, point seal and O-ring. Its barrel is New Old Stock, sporting a Sovereign chalk mark for a mythical pen with a "Flex Broad" nib! We sure wish we knew where that nib was. This comes instead with a fantastically smooth "palladium silver M6" medium nib. You will love writing with it. A great vintage pen for the Snorkel-Curious.

Vintage Pens: 4641 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 4641: Parker: 51
Nobody's perfect. Sometimes we just can't get the blind cap on a Parker 51 to line-up perfectly with the barrel after we replace the diaphragm. This is one such vintage pen. It works well, it is just a little off from what it should be. Plus, you can see dents in the gold-filled cap. Nevertheless, the pen still works well. You will write a medium line with a little feedback. Enjoy a bargain on a classic pen. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4635 Sheaffer Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 4635: Sheaffer: Clipper
Bargains are found at the confluence of works great but is cosmetically flawed. On a quick glance, this Sheaffer Clipper snorkel pen is a gem, but a closer look shows it likely was owned by some high school kid in the 1950s who etched his initials "RYV" into the barrel. There's a scar in the section, too. Click the headline for close-ups. The great news is that this vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac, point seal and O-ring. Better, yet, its "Triumph" nib made of "palladium silver" writes a wet, smooth medium line. Still great for a daily driver. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 0445 Sheaffer Saratoga
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 0445: Sheaffer: Saratoga
It is not quite football season, but you can score a big TouchDown with our Sheaffer Saratoga. We restored this classic TouchDown filling pen from the early, early 1950s with a new ink sac and O-ring. We love the simple pneumatic filling system. The pen has some wear from extensive use. There are no cracks, and it is ready for a new life with you. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a tiny bit of feedback. Good daily writer, if you are careful with the pocket clip that is a little askew. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 0813 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $449.99
Vintage Pens: 0813: Conklin: Endura
The 1920s come roaring back to life with this senior sized Conklin Endura fountain pen. This lapis blue wonder looks pretty sharp with a little discolored darkening at the tail and near the section threads. It has no brassing. Plus, you can still most of the orange-red pin stripe painting in the cap and barrel. We restored this with a silicone ink sac to minimize future discoloration. The only trouble is that these ink sacs don't seem to hold the ink as well as the rubber ones do, and it might be a little leakier than normal. However, many might prefer keeping this pen more as a museum piece than daily user. Its 14k gold nib rides the line between fine and extra fine. Plus, it has a little feedback. 13.2cm capped.
