Vintage Pens: 2913 Parker Vacumatic Maxima
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $449.99
Vintage Pens: 2913: Parker: Vacumatic Maxima
Fenway Park has the Green Monster, and Parker seemed to try creating one of its own with this green Parker Vacumatic Maxima. Almost as wide as a Montblanc 149, at its widest point, the Maxima actually has a smaller, easier-to-handle, section for gripping. The pen is remarkably free from major wear. There's one shallow dimple in the blind cap and a few light scratches. The imprint is strong, and the pen has a 1942 date code. The cap jewel is made from the same striped celluloid as the barrel. The aluminum speedline filler has some wear but it moves easily. The pen is FULLY RESTORED with a new diaphragm. The nib is actually marked "14k / Parker / Vacumatic." It writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3066 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3066: Conklin: Endura
The one thing Conklin got way better than Parker and Sheaffer in the 1920s was color. Have you ever seen the amazing texture and color of one of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" paintings in real life? They are stunning, and the swirling blue of this medium/standard size Conklin Endura looks almost identical! Orange paint (mostly) remains in the accent rings on the cap and barrel. There are no cracks, either. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The clip and cap band have some brassing. Writing a fine line, the original nib and feed have a little feedback. You can see a deep scratch on the top tine of the 14k gold nib when you click the headline, but that is only a scratch—not a crack. The barrel has a strong factory imprint. 12.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3065 Wasp The Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3065: Wasp: The Clipper
Remember the old ads for pork: The other white meat. This vintage pen can be known as the other Sheaffer Clipper. Technically, this is the Wasp "The Clipper." It comes with a fully restored skinny rod "Vacuum Filler." Wasp was a sub-brand of Sheaffer. It's imprint listing Ft. Madison, Iowa, as a home base gives it away. The vacuum filler was Sheaffer's response to the Parker Vacumatic with an empty barrel filling system. It's a rather ingenious feat of engineering. The single downstroke vacuum pump is very effective when it works. Originally designed to last forever, it turned out that forever didn't last very long. Luckily, this one has been fully restored and works very smoothly. The design looks as if the computer age met art deco. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm extra-fine line. You might need to use a touch more pressure than normal to keep it flowing. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3064 Sheaffer Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 3064: Sheaffer: Clipper
Set sail with a Sheaffer Clipper. Our classic snorkel pen comes in the rare "Peacock Blue"! It has been fully restored and is in good working order. It shows some light wear, but not much. Click the headline for close-ups. The Sheaffer Clipper was one of their premium pens. The pen came with a two-tone steel and gold-plated cap with a white dot and nib was a "Triumph" nib (conical) made of "Palladium Silver." This even has those words in script on the nib. The nib is a razor thin extra-fine nib. We don't know if Sheaffer was still calling this an "accountant's nib" at the time, but that is basically what it is. It is sharp with a little feedback, but it writes exceedingly well. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2705 Parker 75 Independence Hall
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 2705: Parker: 75 Independence Hall
Why on earth would a Parker 75 come in pewter, with a wooden disc in the top of the cap? 1776! Now that's the spirit! This is an American Bicentennial celebration Parker 75. On the cap is the factory engraved: "Wood in this limited edition pen is a relic of Independence Hall Philadelphia - 1776". A believe the pewter is a tribute to Sam Adams: metal smith, brewer and patriot. You won't find a dent in the pen. There's only light surface wear, if any. Sorry. We don't have the original box and papers. However, we are reasonably sure this is an authentic original. The section collar has hash marks to help align the nib best with your grip. The section has plastic threads. It comes with an original working converter. You can use modern Parker converters and cartridges with this pen. We do not think the pen has been inked. Inkfeed indicates a medium nib. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3036 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3036: Parker: Vacumatic
Rare red marbled Parker Vacumatics are pretty hard to find these days, but we proudly restored this one to excellent working order. It has great barrel clarity, in addition to a new diaphragm. Yes, one Albert Vannucci purchased this pen in 1937. Yet, it shouldn't be enough to make one turn their nose up a this hard-to-find double jewel design. There are no cracks! A few scratches and wear from use are visible. The clip has brassing and some wavy wear, which is very visible in the photo when you click the headline. Still, the clip is on tightly, and the rest of the pen is pretty nice. The 14k gold nib writes a nice medium line with only light feedback, particularly on high ascenders and deep descenders. Considered a "major" compared to an oversized "Maxima," it is much wider than the 1940s Vac Majors. 12.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3034 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3034: Parker: 51
Double-jewel Parker 51s seem to get more and more difficult to find at affordable prices, but we have a classic black one with a sterling silver cap ready for you. Hailing from 1942, this vintage pen classic has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. The hood has some scratches visible in the photo. Click the headline for a better view. The blind cap is only slightly off its alignment. The silver cap is especially nice. In spite of some wear spots, there are no dents. The blue diamond on the clip indicates it had a lifetime warranty for the life of its original owner. The original 14k gold nib looks a little wonky under a loupe, but it writes a very nice fine-medium line. No cracks. A great daily writer. 13.6cm capped.
