Vintage Pens: 3210 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
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: 3204 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $175.00
Vintage Pens: 3204: Parker: Vacumatic
In 1929, Parker set out on a quest to fill a fountain pen without using a traditional ink sac. They spent huge sums on research and design to create this delightfully inventive system that uses vacuum pressure to flood the now hollow barrel of the pen. This double jewel Parker Vacumatic is from 1941. It is an earlier model of the pen with an aluminum speedline filler. The vintage pen has a new diaphragm and a very clear but slightly ambered barrel. The barrel imprint is weak, but there is no brassing. The cap has some scratches and wear, but no cracks. Click the headline to get a close up of the original 14k gold nib that writes a smooth XF to F line with a faint hint of feedback. To better explain, that feedback is more like perfect responsiveness with a still smooth nib. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3195 Sheaffer Sovereign
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3195: Sheaffer: Sovereign
Brighten up your life with Fiesta Red in your Sheaffer snorkel. YES! That Fiesta Red! One of the rarest colors for the Sheaffer snorkel line. Our Sheaffer Sovereign fountain pen has been fully restored and is great working order. The pen even has its original 1950s price tag! The cap and barrel are nearly flawless. The section has two obvious scratches, but that is pretty much it. Even the pen cap is rare with a wavy line design. Its two-tone 14k gold nib looks like an extra fine but writes a firm medium line. PLUS, you get a fiesta red Sheaffer's mechanical pencil. We aren't convinced it is a true Sovereign, but it does have its original pricing chalk mark! The cap also features a rare window pane design. In good working order with a .9mm lead and "fresh" unused but hardened blue Sheaffer eraser under the cap. New Old Stock. Pen measures 14.2cm 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
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
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
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
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.
