Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $89.99
Vintage Pens: 5846: Parker: Deluxe Challenger
A shiny vintage pen can brighten anybody's day, and we think this Parker Deluxe Challenger Jr. might brighten your's. We love the vibrant green and black marble design. This pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. There are no cracks or deep scratches, but there is significant brassing, a little wear and a couple bite marks on the blind tail cap. Nice crisp imprint. You will write a nice fine to fine-medium line with its 14k gold nib. It is on the shorter and slender side. Click the headline for close-ups. 11.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5845 Esterbrook Dollar Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5845: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
Incised cap bands on an Esterbrook Dollar Pen are an uncommon find, which make this vintage pen a little special. Unfortunately, you can see the clip is not properly set in the top of the cap. Otherwise, the pen is in really good shape. We restored it with a new ink sac. No cracks but some wear from use. We love its steel 9668 nib. It is a buttery smooth medium-broad. You'll love writing with it. 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5843 Esterbrook LJ
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 5843: Esterbrook: LJ
Matching the autumn leaves, our Esterbrook LJ is a lovely copper color. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The model LJ meant Long J-model in the world of vintage Esterbrook pens. Ours is in excellent condition without any cracks or deep scratches. A nice crisp imprint. Perhaps it has a little wear from use but nothing serious. Its 1555 Gregg nib was intended for the Gregg shorthand writing method. It is a surprisingly smooth nib. Gregg nibs were often used by secretaries, journalists and anyone taking dictation. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5841 Parker Duofold Desk Base
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5841: Parker: Duofold Desk Base
If golfing and vintage pens are your passions, we have the ideal desk base for you! This is a Parker Duofold desk set designed to hold two fountain pens. It has the bronze image of a golfer in some very 1920s' looking golfing regalia. How could anyone look so earnest in those pants? Nevertheless, he is a rugged handsome man. A man of business and industry. Personally, we think the paper clip tray is cleverly positioned as a divot from his mighty swing. The two Duofold trumpets appear to be in good condition, as is the green marble (?) base. A price sticker that is likely original is under the base reading that it is a Parker set that originally cost $53.50. No model I.D. number. Sorry, the pens are long gone. This is about a foot long and 8 inches high. It weighs about 5 pounds and will likely cost a little extra to ship than our site can figure out how to ship. Please ask about shipping rates.
Vintage Pens: 5767 Conklin 40
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 5767: Conklin: 40
One of the first unique filling systems that caught our attention in vintage pens was the Conklin Crescent. Extremely simple, easy to use and a "profanity saver" according to Mark Twain. We restored the Conklin Crescent 40 with a new ink sac. We also gave it a blackening treatment to help remove the chocolate hazing and restore its shine. In anything other direct light such as in the photos, it looks nearly black. It has a firm nib that mostly wants to write a fine or extra-fine line rather dryly. Yet, with careful and gentle application of pressure, it can be a semi-flex nib that writes up to 1mm wide. No cracks. The chasing and imprint are worn but still easy to see.

Vintage Pens: 5470 Parker Duofold Geometric
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 5470: Parker: Duofold Geometric
Easily one of our favorite vintage pen designs of all time: the Parker Duofold Geometric! Who doesn't want a pen covered in flying toothbrushes?! Fully restored and ready for action, the fountain pen has a new ink sac. No cracks in the cap or barrel but significant brassing on the trim. You'll also find some wear from use and that the barrel is discolored a couple shades darker than the cap. You'll write a nearly buttery smooth fine line with the 14k gold nib. Cracks won't effect the performance of the nib, but there is a short sideways crack on each side of the nib just above where it enters the section. Click the headline for close ups. The matching pencil shows brassing and wear, but it is in good working order with spare 1.1mm leads.
Vintage Pens: 5739 Parker Thrift Time
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 5739: Parker: Thrift Time
Parker mastered marketing during the Great Depression. Instead of reducing the price of flagship Vacumatics and Duofolds, Parker Thrift Time pens were essentially Parker Duofolds with bargain-basement pricing. Barely even advertised, these pens were actually decent sellers at stationary and pen shops and helped keep Parker afloat during the darkest days of the Depression. On the collector market, they can be a little difficult to come by. Here is a fully restored green marble Parker Thrift Time with a still-working grey-marble pencil. Click the headline for close ups.
Vintage Pens: 5665 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5665: Sheaffer: Imperial
Sheaffer Imperial pens remained in production for nearly 40 years. They were one of the last of the great golden era fountain pens released by Sheaffer. We believe this stunning Sheaffer Imperial to be from the mid-1970s. Close to mint condition, this rarer sterling silver model sports a barley corn pattern. You have to look insanely hard under the right light to find a kiss of a dimple in the cap. The rest is pretty surprisingly nice. It comes with its original aerometric style converter, and it also can take Sheaffer cartridges. You will write a nice broad line with its 18k gold inlaid nib. We actually filled this one up and wrote with it all the way dry. The nib is smooth, but it does have some hard starts, which can get annoying. 13.1cm capped.
