Vintage Pens: 4122: Parker: 51 Desk Set
Make your desk truly executive-looking with a Parker 51 desk set! Fully restored vacumatic-filling Parker 51s. Their trumpets are magnetic balls attached to the base! Both pens have extra-fine nibs made of 14k gold. It's a married set. The pens look identical except the one made in 1947 has a golden centerband on its clutch ring. The other pen is from 1946. The '46 nib is very smooth with good flow. The 1947 nib is drier, smooth...but little feedback. Each pen has a couple little scratches and scuffs but no cracks. They'd look flawless to someone sitting across from you at a desk. One trumpet is slightly smaller than the other and has some warping. Its pen doesn't go as deep as the other pen into its trumpet, BUT it does form a snug fit for the pen not to dry out. The golden trumpet bases show wear and discolored spots not picked up in the photos. There's a chip in the front right corner of the base. It has brown felt underneath.
Vintage Pens: 4108 Parker Duofold

Vintage Pens: 4108: Parker: Duofold
Click the headline to see why we're so excited about this senior jade Parker Duofold. Looks at that nib! It has the early "Lucky Curve" imprint. There's a little scratching on the nib under the imprint, but the 14k gold nib writes a very nice, dry extra-fine line. You'll feel the paper under your nib, but it isn't what we'd consider a scratchy nib. This is quite possibly the closest Parker Duofolds ever came to a modern Japanese extra-fine nib. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The inkfeed is a Christmas tree feed, but it no longer has its curve. Thus, this pen has an unlucky curve. There's brassing on the clip but no cracks in the cap or barrel. Some discoloration, but we've seen much worse. Look closely at the photo, and you'll see the crisp barrel imprint with "Lucky Curve" in the banner. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4107 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4107: Parker: Lucky Curve
There's so much to love about this Parker Lucky Curve...and so much to be disappointed by. On the one hand, this vintage pen has an excellent cap and barrel with no cracks and sharp pinstripe chasing as well as a clean imprint. But the cap band has a lot of brassing on the bottom edge. We'ver restored it with a new ink sac. It has its original intact Lucky Curve feed AND an original Parker Lucky Curve P3X nib! Click the headline to see a close-up. That image is magnified close to 10 times its original size, but it still doesn't show the huge hairline crack sprouting out through the 3 and drifting to the right of the breather hole. You can almost see a little crack leading toward the section from the breather hole. This rarer vintage nib of 14k gold writes a smooth fine line, and in its younger days had reliable flex...but now if you try to flex it, you might split the nib in two. Be very careful if you chose to write with it. 11.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4137 Sheaffer 20C
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4137: Sheaffer: 20C
Waves work their way across the chasing of this black hard rubber Sheaffer 20C from the early 1920s. It sports a smooth, fine 14k gold #3 replacement nib . The pen has also been fully restored with a new ink sac. You'll only see light surface wear on it. No cracks or noteworthy blemishes. Technically, you can push the nib a little for some flex, but we really wouldn't call it a semi-flex nib. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4136 Sheaffer 46 Special-ish
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: Stub
Price: $175.00
Vintage Pens: 4136: Sheaffer: 46 Special-ish
(IT HAS BEEN POINTED OUT TO ME THAT WHILE THIS IS STILL A VERY RARE NIB AND CAP, THEY ARE MISMATCHED AND NOT A TRUE 46 SPECIAL. YET, the parts alone are still worth the price.) Holy cow have we got a good one for you today! Straight outta the 1920s is this hard-to-find Sheaffer 46 Special with the rare "Sheaffer-Clip" pocket clip and a rarer factory stub nib! Run and click that headline for close-ups. No cracks, minimal wear! Fully restored with a new ink sac. We find that those not used to stub nibs might take a little getting used to this pen. Once you find the correct angle it works well with variation from extra-fine to about 1mm. Its inkfeed looks original, too. On the flat bottom of the barrel is a 4 imprinted off center. Its barrel imprint is crisp and legible. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4134 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 4134: Sheaffer: Balance
Balance out your Sheaffer collection with a Sheaffer Balance pencil. No brassing on the clip or band makes the jade green even more perfect. Its only imperfections are little bite marks in the tail that are visually barely visible but give the pencil some texture. Twist the tail cap to advance or retract its 1.1mm lead. Working well, this pen is unrestored. Pull off the tail cap to reveal an eraser that might even have a little life left in it. This is a larger size pencil that measures in at 14.3cm.
Vintage Pens: 4132 Sheaffer Lifetime Flat Top
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 4132: Sheaffer: Lifetime Flat Top
Perfection is nearly achieved with the color on this green Sheaffer Lifetime Flat Top. You'll only find minor discoloration around the threads of the barrel. No brassing or cracks! It has been restored with a new ink sac. Sporting the straight "flat" pocket clip, the cap is great except for one impression near the top of the clip and to the left. More oval than a BB but about the same size. On the barrel, you'll find a clean, crisp imprint. And, of course, the star attraction is its 14k gold nib! It writes a wet, fine line very smoothly, but some people might think it is more of a medium. Either way it is delightfully smooth. We love the white dot on the top of the flat top. No imprint is on the flat tail side. Good enough for a museum but still a joy with which to write. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4128 Sheaffer Balance

Vintage Pens: 4128: Sheaffer: Balance
Perfection is achieved in the stunning green of our oversized Sheaffer Balance from 1940. Fully restored with a new ink sac, you won't find a trace of discoloration on the cap and barrel. Click the headline for a closer look, and you will see a little steel "brassing" on the cap band and flat ball of the clip. Those are the only imperfections you'll find. Its barrel imprint is shallow but legible. If you don't want to save it as a museum piece and prefer writing with it, you'll find its 14k gold nib is an extra-fine-to-fine point with a bit of feedback. Perfectly within the realm of normal for such a razor-sharp tip. 14cm capped.
