Vintage Pens: 4905: Waterman: 45
You can write if you want to, if you don't no body will. But if your friends don't write, then somethin' ain't right, and they're no friends of mine. It's the safety pen. It's the safety pen. I bet the '80s group Men Without Hats never thought they'd inspire a vintage Waterman parody. It's weirdest intro we could do for this grail pen: the Waterman 45 Safety Filler! We were excited to get our hands on this vintage pen classic. Its hard rubber has only mild signs of chocolate hazing, and its insides are cleaned and moving smoothly. We are reasonably certain this pen is not water-tight, but it is an excellent example of this truly rare pen and worthy of a museum. Its cap has a silver clip and excellent chasing. The barrel still shows light chasing and imprints that are legible, but the chasing is not nearly as deep as it is on the cap. Its 14k gold nib is not marked 5 but it looks like a 5. You will write a smooth semi-flex line with it from extra-fine to just about 1mm. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4904 Sheaffer Demonstrator
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4904: Sheaffer: Demonstrator
Sheaffer Demonstrator pens from the 1920s and '30s turn up so rarely, this might be your one chance in a lifetime to get this pen. You can see the cut outs made into the barrel of this rare vintage pen. Sheaffer Dealers and pen reps would have these pens to showcase how a Sheaffer pen works on the inside. You can see this pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It is great to see this pen working through the filling and recapping cycles. The trim shows a little brassing, and there is some light wear on this pen. You will write a medium line with its 14k gold Lifetime nib. It has an early 1930s inkfeed.
Vintage Pens: 4899 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4899: Parker: Vacumatic
Parker got creative with some of its Vacumatic variants over the years. This is the rarer Parker Vacumatic Long Major. It is the same width as a Major at the length of a Maxima. Our vintage pen was exquisitely restored. It has a fresh diaphragm and the cap and barrel are without blemishes. A crisp imprint shows a 1942 date code. As you can see in the photo, the barrel clarity is excellent with some ambering. Even the nib still has most of its two-tone plating. You will write a firm, extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. There is a little feedback with the nib, and we think you might have to break it in a bit to get it consistently flowing. Although you could make it a daily writer, cosmetically, it is good enough for a museum. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4897 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: Stub
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 4897: Parker: Vacumatic
Holy cats! A factory stub nib on a Parker Vacumatic Maxima! This sure isn't something we see all that often. Click the headline for close-ups. It is fully restored with a working diaphragm. Oh, but that nib! This 14k gold wonder is buttery smooth while delivering nice line variation. You'll find its cap and barrel are great, too. No cracks or blemishes. It appears it was wet-sanded to a high-gloss shine. Unfortunately, it took away most of the pen's imprint. The "1" on the nib indicates that at least the nib was made in 1941. Inside the pen, the celluloid is darkly ambered. Flaws be damned, this is one of the best writing Maximas we've ever seen, but we love vintage pens with stub nibs. 13cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4867: Parker: Duofold
How many boxes does this check off on your grail pen requirements? Senior streamlined Parker Duofold. Rare cap bands. Green marble. Fully restored. SEMI-FLEX NIB! Click the headline for a close-up. Its 14k gold nib is an arrow nib over a Christmas tree inkfeed. You will go from an "American extra-fine" line to about 1.25mm wide. No cracks or significant scratching. Only light wear from use. Its greatest flaws are majority brassing on its two skinny cap bands and some brassing on the pocket clip and thicker cap band. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4841 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4841: Parker: Duofold
Black streamlined Parker Duofold Seniors aren't the rarest pens in the Duofold line-up, but they aren't exactly everyday finds, either. We lucked out in getting ahold of this handsome devil that is fully restored. It was gently used, as you will see some light scratches and wear from where the cap snugged against the barrel, but there are no cracks or deep scratches. You'll find a little brassing on the lower cap band and clip. The barrel imprint is nice and crisp with a 1936 date code, which would also explain the arrow nib and comb feed. You'll write a smooth medium line with its 14k gold nib. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4519 Parker Vacumatic Maxima
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4519: Parker: Vacumatic Maxima
Do you wish your vintage grail pen came with a Japanese extra-fine nib? This 1939 Parker Vacumatic Maxima gets pretty close to Japanese extra-fine with the right paper. It is a beautiful silver pearl design with tolerable barrel clarity with ambering. No cracks, no scratches, no significant wear. It comes with a fresh diaphragm and a clean imprint and top and bottom silver pearl design jewels. There's monotone 14k gold nib. Click the headline for close-ups. Great aluminum speedline filler. Its only flaw seems to be the darkened metal trim around the blind-cap jewel. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4813 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $999.99
Vintage Pens: 4813: Parker: Duofold
Senior-sized Parker Duofolds with a wide cap band, such as this one, don't come along every day. In fact, they might only come along once or twice a lifetime, if you're lucky. We have one such beauty right here, and it has no cracks under the cap band. It is gorgeous with a deep Lucky Curve imprint, too! Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaw appears to be a thin sliver of brassing on the cap band. Click the headline for a close-up. This is a permanite model not the red hard rubber. Still, it is a great treat. There's a "Christmas tree" inkfeed and a 14k gold nib. You'll write a very nice medium line. Fairly crisp milling on the end caps, too! 13.9cm capped.
