Vintage Pens: 3210: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
The sky's the limit with our Eversharp Skyline fountain pen. Advertised as ideal for air travel, the pen came with a breather tube inside its sac to help the pen adjust for changes of air pressure at different altitudes. Unfortunately, it wasn't very effective, but it still makes for a very handsome and aerodynamic looking vintage pen. Ours has been refurbished with a new ink sac. It is actually a very dark maroon/burgundy barrel. The cap has green stripes and an unusually wide cap band. No cracks; a trace of brassing on the lever filler. Its nib writes a nice, smooth medium line. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3164 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3164: Conklin: Endura
Conklin Endura pens were among the best of the 1920s. Our standard-size vintage pen sports a stunning, shimmering bronze-and-black marbling with yellow-painted rings at either end of the pen. We are pretty sure the yellow is original factory paint. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. The gold-plated trim shows about 3% brassing on the cap band and 10% to 15% brassing on the pocket clip. The imprint is clean and clear. Bite marks mar the tail a bit, and there is some light general wear on the rest of the pen. No cracks, but there is a tiny chip in the lip of the cap. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, wet medium line that sings a little as it writes. 12.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3169: Esterbrook: 444 Dipless Pen
Give your bed-and-breakfast, church or small business a classic vibe with a dip pen to sign the register. The pen is called "dipless" because its holder is an inkwell, and you have to dip it less because it always rests in ink. The dip/holder is an inkwell that keeps the pen wet and ready to fill out a check or other brief writing experience. The glass base is New Old Stock. The black cover has its original price sticker. It has not seen ink, as the instructions are still under the black part, which you must pry off to fill. The pen is dip only, and it comes complete with an upgraded 2968 nib, which we haven't dipped as it also appears to be NOS. Click the headline for a close-up photo. Complete with original box and instructions!
Vintage Pens: 3162 Parker VP
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3162: Parker: VP
Parker VP fountain pens led the way for many new innovations for Parker in the 1960s. Only made for a couple years, these vintage pens introduced the adjustable nib that would be much more famous on the Parker 75, which replaced this pen in the line-up. It also experimented with the converter fill system. Although the pen says you can remove the aerometric-style converter, we highly recommend against it. The clear glass/plastic viewing window at its base is very fragile. Light wear afflicts the pen, but it isn't too bad for a daily user. No dents but the cap might look a little scratched up to some. The 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine line. Its cap closes all the way, but it doesn't take a lot of effort to slip it back off. 13.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3157: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Looking for the vintage pen with a little bit something extra? Check out the rare wide band on our Eversharp Skyline. This pen is beautiful, too, in its deep dark blue and red-and-green striped cap. No brassing, no cracks. Its only major flaw is the name "John B Maljan" written on the side of the barrel. You can see it on the bottom of the pen in the photo. It really doesn't diminish from the incredible smooth medium nib with which you write. It is a nice 14k gold nib. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3156 Wahl-Eversharp 5th Avenue
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 3156: Wahl-Eversharp: 5th Avenue
On the avenue...5th Avenue. It feels a little "Easter Parade-y" up in this description box today with our Eversharp 5th Avenue fountain pen. Fully restored, this was really one of the last major pen designs by Eversharp. It borrows heavily from the immensely popular hooded nib of the Parker 51. This vintage pen has light-to-moderate wear but no cracks or deep scratches. It is a slip-cap pen. The 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line with a little required pressure. The lever is off 90-degrees from the top of the nib. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3150 Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 3150: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal
Stunning is our favorite way to describe the still perfect green on this Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal fountain pen from the late 1920s or early 1930s. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is the senior/oversized model. Discoloration is obvious on this pen, and we show the worst of it in the photo so there are no surprises. No cracks mar the surface of this vintage pen. You can find some brassing on the Greek key design of the cap band and other pieces of trim. Click the headline to see a great close-up of the 14k gold manifold nib. It writes a firm, smooth medium line. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3100 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3100: Parker: 51
Hip, hip, hooray! The class of 1942 celebrated in style with this first-year 1941 Parker 51! Well, partly first year 51. Marketing material for the grand release of the Parker 51 in 1941 said that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time, which is why it was called the 51. Only first-year pens were given the aluminum tail jewel in the blind cap. Although the imprint seems to have worn off, the "Class of '42" engraving seems to be a nice verification of age. We are a little perplexed that the pen looks more teal blue than cedar blue, as would be appropriate. The sterling silver cap, which is in great condition, is a later model replacement cap. It still has a blue-diamond clip, but the jewel is plastic grey pearl--not aluminum. This vintage pen's diaphragm has been replaced, and it is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Light wear can be found in all the usual places. No cracks or dents. 13.8cm capped.
