Vintage Pens: 4234: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
Esterbrook really pioneered a lot in this simple pen-and-pencil set. Our Esterbrook Dollar Pen is the slender "A" model. Made in the late 1930s or early 1940s, its coolest feature is the interchangeable nib system. You can unscrew the entire nib assembly to change or repair your nib. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The nib assembly is the original one with the flat bottomed inkfeed. Its steel nib is a remarkably buttery smooth writer of a medium line. Click the headline for close-ups. The Esterbrook "P" pencil is also part of the "Dollar Pen" series. It is among the first clicker/injector lead pencils ever made. It uses 1.1mm leads and works great. Both instruments show wear from use but nothing terrible. The nose cone of the pencil is a little pitted. Works perfectly, includes spare leads. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4229 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4229: Parker: Vacumatic
Nickel trim looks sharp on our silver pearl Parker Vacumatic Major. We restored it with a new diaphragm, and it is in great working order. Click the headline for a closer look at its barrel clarity and original 14k gold nib. Even the blind cap is perfectly fit after the restoration. You'll see some light general wear from use, but there are no cracks or egregious scratches. The barrel imprint is clear and there is an 8 date code. We think that makes it a 1948. The Vac pump is a little bent, but it works perfectly well. Dip it and see that it writes a very nice fine line. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4192 Parker Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4192: Parker: Desk Pen
Striking us right between the eyes on this Parker desk pen were its fantastic pearl-and-black design with only light discoloration and its SEMI-FLEX nib. No wet noodle, this 14k gold nib still flexes from extra-fine to about 1mm. Any flex in a Parker nib from this era seems positively strange, but it is a nice and reasonably smooth nib! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its tail taper still gleams black. Only light wear on the barrel and light chocolate hazing on the section. Its imprint is clear, but it is not listed as a Duofold, and it appears to have a 1935 date code on the barrel. The nib is not a Duofold nib, either, and its inkfeed looks more like a Vacumatic's than a Christmas-tree feed. Click the headline for close-ups. 19cm.
Vintage Pens: 4167 Esterbrook Relief No. 2-L
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4167: Esterbrook: Relief No. 2-L
Choo-choo! We keep that train of obscure, rare and hard-to-find Esterbrooks rollin' on down the track. This time we do it with another English-made Esterbrook Relief No. 2-L. Restored with a new ink sac, it shows some wear and brassing but no cracks. Naturally, you clicked that headline to take a gander at the amazing 14k gold #2 oblique nib. Ideal for right-handed writers it can write a fine straight line on an angle or a juicy, broad or double broad 1mm+ line at a different angle. Nearly smooth as butter! This likely will be the only one we ever get. 12.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4168 Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4168: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Model B
There are two reasons we think Esterbrook fans are going to love this Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B. On first glance you'll see the very rare 3 incised cap bands. A closer look will reveal the semi-rare steel 2788 nib! You will write a wet, medium-broad line with the nib normally...BUT it also is a semi-flex that can go much broader. It gets a little scratchy on ascenders and descenders, but it is smooth in the middle. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, strong imprint. Light wear from use. 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4175 Conklin 3NL
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1910-1919   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4175: Conklin: 3NL
Alright you Spencarians and other flex writers! Behold the very flexi Conklin 3NL. It starts at a wet extra-fine and flexes up to 2mm! It is not a wet noodle, but what resistance is there will only help you stay a little slower and steadier. Did we mention that it is extremely smooth, too? We restored this incredible vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, minimal scratching or any other blemishing. Crisp chasing. Its imprint is a little faded but legible. If it helps you date it, there is only an imprint on one side of the crescent filler. Its one helluva pen. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4155 Wahl-Eversharp Desk Pen Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4155: Wahl-Eversharp: Desk Pen Set
A brace of woodgrain Wahl desk pens is ideal for the person with the rare 2-pen desk base that is missing its pens. We restored each with a new ink sac, and we are stunned at how minimal their wear is. No cracks, no chips, no scratches! The gold-plated trim rings and levers have some corrosion or gunk or brassing that won't polish out for us. Click their headline for a closer look at the whole pens and the nibs. The more vibrant, front desk pen comes with a 14k gold "Wahl Signature Pen" nib that writes a fine-medium line nicely with a little feedback. The duller-finished back pen sports a "Wahl 6 14k" nib that writes a blissfully smooth wet medium-broad line. The back pen measures 22cm and the front pen measures 21.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 4153 Carter’s Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4153: Carter’s: Desk Pen
Carter's inks were among the most popular inks of the 1920s and '30s. Eventually, they got the smart idea to make pens, too. This stunning blue-marbled desk pen is an incredible writer, and we wish we had the base for it to keep for ourselves. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Its hard rubber parts are a little discolored with mild chocolate hazing. Its blue barrel is nearly perfect except for the half-inch or so the friction fits the section. It is whole and sound, but it is discoloring to an almost clear opaque. Its heart and soul is its smoooooth fine-medium nib. Amazing. You'll want to write with it all day. 21cm.
