Vintage Pens: 3372: Sheaffer: Skyboy 875
Off you go, into the wild blue yonder with a Sheaffer Skyboy fountain pen! Effectively a Sheaffer Balance 875, this is one of those rarer models marked Skyboy on the pocket clip. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks or brassing, but it has lots of little scratches, nicks and dings from use. Nevertheless, the straited carmine finish still dazzles through the wear. Write a smooth, dry, firm extra-fine line with its two-tone, 14k gold nib.

Vintage Pens: 3209: Moore: #83
Moore pens of Boston are too frequently overlooked by modern pen collectors. This black-and-bronze marbled design handsomely hails from the late 1920s or early '30s. The celluloid still glitters in the light. We restored this pen with a new ink sac, and it is in excellent working order. It has no cracks, but you will see some wear, along with some brassing on the ball of the pocket clip and a little on the "bound-edge" cap band. Nibs are the heart and soul of any pen, and this one is a fairly uncommon replacement nib from Weidlich in Cincinnati, Ohio! You'll write a delightful, genuine extra-fine line with it--but it also has a little flex. 11.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3211: Eclipse: Oversized
In the 1920s, colorful pens that weren't black, silver or gold were all the rage. Orange was the first breakout color, and it was fittingly loud for that roaring decade. Our oversized orange Eclipse vintage pen hasn't lost any of its moxie. It is restored with a new ink sac. Eclipse was a "second tier" pen that was a serious competitor to Parker and Sheaffer until the Great Depression knocked them out of business. Our honkin' beauty has only minimal wear and some light brassing on the huge oversized 14k gold filled cap band and clip. Nibwise, it writes a wet, smooth fine-medium with some flex that spreads to more than 1mm wide. Wide gripping makes for easier writing, especially for those whose hands cramp and get sore when doing a lot of writing. 14.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3385 Wahl-Eversharp Symphony

Era: 1940-1949
Price: $175.00
Vintage Pens: 3385: Wahl-Eversharp: Symphony
The space age meets the golden age of vintage pens with our Eversharp Symphony with a "Lowey Cap." These rarer models of the Symphony are really oustanding and harder to find. Ours is restored with a new ink sac. The pen is New Old Stock with a price sticker still on it. The pen has a couple spot pieces of tiny light wear, but there are no cracks, scratches or other significant flaws. Click the headline for a closer look at both the pen and the nib. Its 14k gold nib writes a nice, juicy broad line. The sticker says it is a flexible fine nib...but it wrote a juicy broad line for us. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3366 Wahl-Eversharp Signature Ringtop
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3366: Wahl-Eversharp: Signature Ringtop
"Coral" is one of the rarest colors among vintage pens, and the coral coloring on this Wahl-Eversharp Signature ringtop pen is almost perfect! Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Although there is some wear from use on the pen, there are no cracks. Only a wee bit of brassing can be found on the cap bands and lever. The biggest flaw is that about an eighth of an inch of the lever is missing. Its original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a wet fine to double broad line with a little flex. Keep in mind that the tines of the nib can catch a little on curves. Click the headline for a closeup. It is a little more of a specialty nib that you'll need to take a little time to learn. Large for a ringtop. 12.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3376: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
An iconic vintage pen, the Eversharp Skyline represents the 1940s better than most pens. Its art deco, modern design with its aerodynamic styling really stands out. Plus, it was advertised for safer travel by air...a novel concept gaining greater national trust. It has a breather tube inside the pen that is supposed to compensate for changes in air pressure and make less of a mess. It was a good theory that didn't really work out, but it helped sell a lot of pens. Ours is a little beat-up, with a burgundy barrel and striped cap. You can see some dents on the dome in the photo. The barrel has equally large dents. Plus, the cap is missing a cap ring at the base of the cap. We restored it with a new ink sac, and its original 14k gold nib writes a medium line and works better with a heavy-handed writer. We're still trying to adjust the nib so that it writes with better flow for normal fountain pen writing. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3378: Esterbrook: SJ-1461
Required by many high schools, few brands taught as many Americans how to write with an "ink pen" as the Esterbrook J-series pens. Our writing instrument is an Esterbrook SJ, which meant the short version of the J-series. It isn't really that short, but it is a lovely ruby red writer. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel have visible wear but a strong imprint, no cracks and a stunning design make up for the wear. Its steel 1461 nib was originally advertised as being for firm writing that could make the most of "Carbon Copies." We find that it writes a firm fine line that is both smooth and has a little feedback. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3381: Esterbrook: SJ-2314M
Esterbrooks are super fun due to their customizable nature. Several dozen nibs screw into one of the most popular pens of the 1950s. This Esterbrook SJ pen sports the fairly rare steel 2314-M Relief nib. We restored it with a new rubber ink sac. Our vintage pen has moderate wear but no cracks. The nib writes an italic cursive line fairly smoothly. 12.1cm capped.
