Vintage Pens: 4580: Esterbrook: J-1555 Gregg
It is amazing to us how the shades of green varied so much in Esterbrook J-model pens such as this one. There can be no doubting this is a lighter yellow-green. Overall, it is in great shape. No cracks or deep scratches--just light wear from use. It sports a still-fresh original Esterbrook-marked ink sac! Works great. The real surprise treat with this vintage pen is its surprisingly smooth extra-fine steel nib made for the Gregg writing method! Often these nibs are quite scratchy, but this one writes very well. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4578: Sheaffer: Imperial Desk Set
Go back to work looking your finest after the pandemic by kickin' it old skool with a classic Sheaffer Imperial Desk Set. This fountain pen and ballpoint set look fantastic. Light wear on the visible surface of the onyx/obsidian/black glass base. It has a couple small chips on the bottom leading edge. The Sheaffer logo on the opposite side has a couple letters scratched out. It comes with an unengraved brass plate. The ballpoint pen has a working black Sheaffer refill. The fountain pen has a working Sheaffer squeeze-bar converter but can also use Sheaffer cartridges. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. It writes smoothly with a light touch. This is a large, clunky, heavy item. International shipping charges will likely be steeper than the usual amount the website knows to ask.

Vintage Pens: 4577: Esterbrook: Desk Pen
Dress up your desk with one of the top-selling pens of the 1950s, an Esterbrook Desk Pen. This is essentially an Esterbrook J-model pen with an 8-ball-esque holder. We don't think this pen has every been used. It has a still factory-fresh original Esterbrook-marked ink sac. We filled the pen with water, and there was no color when we emptied it. The pen shows some light wear. Its base only has wear around the steel accent ring. The original black felt is on the bottom of the base reading "Esterbrook / Desk Set / No. 112 / Made in U.S.A." Its 1550 nib is like writing with the corner of a razor blade. It is extra fine and it digs into the paper. Luckily these nibs unscrew and are very interchangeable. International shipping might cost extra to account for the size and weight.
Vintage Pens: 4574 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4574: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Sheaffer Lifetime flat tops are such nice daily writers. This pen isn't much more than that. Fully restored, it works well but it shows plenty of wear on the cap and barrel. There is brassing on the trim, and the clip is a little loose. It has an authentic Sheaffer section and nib assembly, but it isn't the correct one for this pen. Its 14k gold nib writes a medium line with a little feedback. A great daily writer. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4559: Parker: Duofold International
So close to perfection, it is painful. Tragically, this otherwise mint condition Parker Duofold senior fountain pen made of orange hard rubber, has a triangle shaped hole in its side where the rubber blew apart. We super-glued Humpty Dumpty back together, and it looks like a museum piece with the cap closed. Such sharp, crisp milling on the cap and tail ends! No brassing. An original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. An original box! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its 14k gold original nib writes a smooth fine line. Everything works great. Too bad about the side of the barrel. Its button filler is also pretty chewed up, BUT we think it is solid 14k gold! Click the headline for close-ups. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4569 Unknown Ivory Dipper
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: pre-1900   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4569: Unknown: Ivory Dipper
Click the headline to take a look at the beautifully etched design on this 14k gold nib. We suspect this dainty little dip pen dates back to the late 1800s. We think its tail tapper is ivory. It comes complete in its original box. Here's the bad news. It is missing a teeny-tiny bit of the tipping of the nib. As such, it doesn't really write. You can have the tipping redone, but we don't do any metallurgy. It is a great rare little treat that is great for decoration and potentially future use with a little repair work.

Vintage Pens: 4570: Esterbrook: SJ-1550 N.O.S.
Teaching America how to write with an ink pen in the 1950s, Esterbrook SJ-models such as this New Old Stock piece were among the most requested by teachers in high schools and shorthand schools. Easily customized with more than 3 dozen nibs to suit many individual tasks, these pens were very popular. Our set comes with an still stickered fountain pen that we restored with a new ink sac. This vintage pen is in mint condition...and a minty green color. It comes with a still-stickered NOS TTJ pencil to match. The pencil appears to work but is missing its .9mm leads and eraser. We think the missing eraser might explain why the clicker part is sunken into the pencil. You will write a whisper-thin extra-fine line with the pens original 1550 steel nib that has a little feedback.
