Vintage Pens: 2592 Sheaffer Targa Classic
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 2592: Sheaffer: Targa Classic
NEW OLD STOCK! The sticker is still on this Sheaffer Targa Classic 1001 in brushed stainless steel. When we tested the original aerometric-style converter, it worked as good as new, and there was no ink that flushed out. The only flaw on the pen is a scratch near the tail that doesn't make a full half inch. In the event the converter ever gives out, these vintage pens take modern Sheaffer converters and cartridges! The original stainless steel nib writes a firm, smooth medium line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1353 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1353: Parker: 51
Click the headline to see the unique cap of this Parker 51 a little more closely. We've never seen "Parker" written into the rim of the cap like this before, plus seems cut off about a third of the way from the bottom. On the back it says "1/10 14k Gold Filled / Made in USA." The last line was almost cut off. There is a circle of brassing directly below the pocket clip, and a line of brassing just to its write. The pinstripe design is worn on the back. No real dents, but one reverse dent. The rest of the pen is a basic 51 from the second quarter of 1944. We replaced the diaphragm, and the pen is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a really sharp extra-fine line. Some might call it scratchy, but XF lovers will likely enjoy it. The nib cowl has some scratches and gentle warp. The barrel has some wear, and the blind cap isn't lining up squarely. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1351 Parker 51 Half Demonstrator
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1351: Parker: 51 Half Demonstrator
To help showcase the incredible wonder of the Parker 51, the company made some rare demonstrator and half demonstrator models for sales reps to show off to pen shops. This is an authentic Parker 51 "half demonstrator" from the 1940s. There is no date code on the pen, but it has a Vacumatic filler, which we restored with a fresh diaphragm. (The pump doesn't like to come all the way up, but it does work.) Click the headline to see a close up of the clear nib cowl, ink feed and 14k gold nib. The cap has an amber jewel. The nut under it is stripped, our honest shame...we super glued it in place to hold the clip on more tightly. The cap has multiple dimples. Still, it is a really nice grail pen! 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2600 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 2600: Conklin: Endura
From the heyday of the vintage pen era comes an oversized Conklin Endura in black and bronze! Even the original painted yellow stripes are 99% intact! It is a beautiful pen which we restored with a fresh ink sac. The trim has some brassing, as you might see in the photo. Click the headline to see a better close-up. The bronze in the cap is a little duller than it is in the barrel, but it still looks great. The back of the cap has a worn "dent" line in it, but it is difficult to see unless someone is looking at the pen closely. Strong imprint, light wear on the rest of the pen. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a great, smooth, firm extra-fine line! 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2597 Mont Blanc Sterling Silver Pix
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 2597: Mont Blanc: Sterling Silver Pix
Golfing will never be the same when you keep score with a sterling silver 1930s Mont Blanc Pix mechanical pencil. Click the headline to see the imprint and logo. Although the etchings on it are a little faded in places, its six sides each show a different pattern. The pencil is a click pencil. It uses 1.1mm lead. The lead advance mechanism seems to work well. The clip is a little sprung that doesn't quite fit flush against the barrel of the pencil. A spare lead is in the space under the clicker, which is where an eraser would be...if it had an eraser. Lots of light wear, shallow scratches no dents. 9.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 0551 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0551: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Not only were the Eversharp Skyline fountain pens revolutionary, so were the pencils. Revolutionary because it was Eversharp that invented the click pencil that we take for granted today! Made of a deep burgundy barrel and 14k gold-filled other half, this vintage pencil is unique in that it doesn't have a metal nose cone! It is in great working order. Remove the tail clicker button to reveal where the 1.1mm lead refills go. It has the name "R.A. Staffenson" engraved on the burgundy barrel, but there isn't a lot of other noticeable wear. No dents, cracks or deep scratches. The eraser is petrified. 13.2cm.
Vintage Pens: 2372 Sheaffer Valiant Saratoga
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 2372: Sheaffer: Valiant Saratoga
Clever snorkel collectors will rightfully call us out on the model name of this Sheaffer "Valiant Saratoga." It's a married pen. It has a Sheaffer Valiant cap in a slightly darker burgundy and a lighter burgundy Sheaffer Saratoga body and an open two-tone 14k gold nib. Either way, we restored it with a new point seal, O-ring and ink sac. The snorkel filler works great. The F3 nib writes a smooth fine line! The clip is skewed to the side but seemingly secure. Moderate wear is featured on the cap and barrel, but there are no cracks. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2367 Sheaffer Frankenpen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 2367: Sheaffer: Frankenpen
Sheaffer once made a Lifetime fountain pen with a torpedo cap and flattail body. However, we think this is either the work of a clever con man or just somebody trying to make a complete pen from two halves. The barrel and nib are of a 1920s Sheaffer Lifetime Junior-Size. The cap is of a 1930s junior Balance. Together, they make a great pen. We found it this way and restored it with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel each have a fair degree of wear. There is no brassing; nor are there any cracks. The 14k gold nib with original 1920s inkfeed write a very nice, firm medium line. 11.8cm capped.
