Vintage Pens: 4625 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4625: Parker: Duofold
Streamlined Parker Duofolds are a hard-to-find treasure. This pencil is a great find. It is nearly 100 years old, and it shows only a little wear, but not much for its age. There's a little brassing on the ball of the clip. It works well, advancing and retracting its 1.1mm lead with a twist of the orange permanite tail cap. Under the cap is the hardened old eraser. Under that are a few spare leads. A couple wear spots keep its imprint from being perfect, but it is legible. Not an oversized pencil, it looks average sized. 12cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4626 Parker 75ish
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 4626: Parker: 75ish
On the surface, this looks like the classic Parker 75 in sterling silver with the "cisele" design. Made in France and completely dent-free, you'll find a little wear on the "cap band" and top tassie. There are monotone golden dinner plate ends on the pen. Yet, once you pull off the cap, you'll see what looks to us like a Premier-model section and 14k gold nib. The Premier kept a similar nib to the 75, but the section—grip—is more rounded than the triangular 75 sections. With a light touch, the nib writes a very dry, extra-fine line. HOWEVER, it has a springy nib that when used slowly and gently has some nice flex. There's a little feedback, but it is worth the semi-flex ability. It fills with modern Parker converters and cartridges, but it comes with neither. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4624: Parker: Lady Duofold
Got it made in the jade. Keep rockin' the summer with this Parker Lady Duofold. We restored it with a new ink sac. You'll see the barrel is more discolored than the cap, but the wide cap band is an especially nice treat. The cap and barrel have some light wear from use, but they look pretty good. Its barrel imprint is still crisp and legible. You can read it in the photo, if you click they headline for the close-up. The 14k gold nib writes and extra-fine line with a bit of feedback and a little flex. We believe it is barely a semi-flex nib, but if you are careful and patient, you can get it to go from XF to medium. 11.8cm capped.

Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 4623: Sheaffer: Saratoga
Dip into the joy of mess-free fountain pen filling with the revolutionary snorkel-filling Sheaffer Saratoga! We love the overcomplicated Rube Goldberg filling system of the Sheaffer Snorkel. They are just such fun pens. We restored this one with a working ink sac and new O-ring and point seal. True, it is fairly worn, scuffed and scratched. BUT, it writes magnificently with its two-toned 14k gold nib. You will enjoy its extremely smooth medium line. And idea daily driver for anyone just getting into Snorkels. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4622: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
Red vintage pens are harder to come by, and we think you'll be impressed by our Esterbrook Dollar Pen. It looks like freshly licked red hard candy, but it isn't sticky. No cracks and light wear on the cap and barrel. The section looks as if it might have small plier marks from a past repair. We didn't damage it while restoring it and installing a new ink sac. Its 1554 Gregg nib is an earlier original nib with a flat ink feed. You will write a smooth extra-fine line with a light touch. 11cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4621: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
Smokey blue like a 1940s after-hours jazz club, our dusky hued Esterbrook Dollar Pen is a handsome model. It is SJ-sized, even if they didn't call it that in the 1940s, that is what most people will know it as. It is restored with a new ink sac. You can find the usual wear on any daily user you find from a nearly 80-year-old pen, but there are no cracks or hideous flaws. You'll write a fine line with some feedback once you find the sweet spot for writing on the steel 2668 nib. This is an early version of the 2668 nib with a flat feed. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4616: Parker: Parker Duofold Set
Marriage is what bwings us togethah today. Our photo unintentionally hides the fact this senior Parker Duofold Big Red is really a married cap and barrel. In real life, it is obvious that the cap is the rarer, harder to find original hard-rubber cap and the barrel is "Permanite." As is the senior pencil. Nevertheless, we restored the pen with a new ink sac to good working order. No cracks, but some substantial brassing on the cap band. Light wear from use on the rest of the pen. Its inkfeed is an original "Christmas tree" feed. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine to medium line with a little feedback, depending at the angle you hold your pen as you write. We find the pencil is in good, unrestored working order. It has some brassing or discoloration on the nose cone and rear trim. Its permanite barrel shows more wear than the pen. Comes with 1 1.1mm lead and a mostly broken and hardened eraser in the tail.
Vintage Pens: 4589 Wahl-Eversharp Orange Hard Rubber
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 4589: Wahl-Eversharp: Orange Hard Rubber
We can't only focus on pens. Give a vintage pencil a try like this classic "red" hard rubber Wahl-Eversharp pencil. A great piece from the 1920s, it remains in good working order. You just twist the tail to advance a 1.1mm lead. As you might expect from a 100-year-old pencil it has some surface wear from use, a little staining and some brassing on the gold-plated clip. You should be able to see all of it in the photo. It comes loaded with a 1.1mm lead, but there are no spares in the tail. Be aware these early pencils only pushed the lead forward. To retract the lead, you need to twist the tail the other way and then push the nib in. 13.4cm.
