SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4501: Conklin: Crescent 40
Almost perfect but not quite. Let's get it over with. Look closely at the threads of the barrel. Yes, that is a 2mm square chunk missing. Otherwise this pen is a perfect New Old Stock Conklin Crescent 40. We restored it any way with a new ink sac. Excellent chased black hard rubber with a deep imprint. No brassing. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine to 1mm wide semi-flex line. BUT, that stupid chunk missing makes this pen a risk to break with any flex writing. The pressure could crack the barrel or worse. That is why it is $250 cheaper than the other mint and flawless 40 we have on the site. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4369 Waterman Green-Gold Ringtop
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4369: Waterman: Green-Gold Ringtop
Something just didn't look right about this pencil when we first saw it. Have you spotted it? It is a Waterman pencil with a Wahl-Eversharp price sticker! We got this pencil from the lost-and-found cache of writing instruments from a pen shop that closed in the 1920s. This green-gold pencil likely cost the same price as an Eversharp pencil so they just put the sticker on it. The pencil is New Old Stock and in mint condition. Twist the plastic nose cone to advance the 1.1mm lead. These old models of Waterman pencils did not retract the lead when twisting the other direction. You just had to press the lead back in after retracting the mechanism. Under the ringtop blind cap are the original spare leads. Originally designed to be carried on a necklace or watch fob. 10cm.
Vintage Pens: 4261 Sheaffer Lifetime Flat Top
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: Stub
Price: $599.99
Vintage Pens: 4261: Sheaffer: Lifetime Flat Top
NEW OLD STOCK! Still stickered, we have a beautiful black hard rubber Sheaffer Lifetime from very beginning of Lifetime pens. Our pen was made before the famed white dot logo was applied to the pen. Click the headline and you will see this sports an amazing original factory STUB nib with the equally rare early imprint that reads "Sheaffer's / Lifetime / Pen" on 3 lines. No patent info. No serial number! Under the nib is the rare original spear-point inkfeed. No brassing. No cracks. No Wear. We restored it with a new ink sac. Made in 1920 or '21. A once in a Lifetime opportunity to own a museum-worthy piece of writing history. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4414 Parker Vacumatic Maxima
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $799.99
Vintage Pens: 4414: Parker: Vacumatic Maxima
Behold the mighty Parker Vacumatic Maxima! A grail pen for many, this large version of the Vacumatic is a rare double-jewel treat. If perfection is an A+, this pen is an A-. Cosmetically, the pen is crack and scratch free. It has a crisp clean imprint. No brassing mars the gold-plated trim. It has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. Under the tail's blind cap is an aluminum speedline filler. The only problems aren't really problems just slight deviations from perfection. Its celluloid barrel is still very transparent, but it has ambered just ever so slightly. Its large 14k gold nib writes a beautiful, smooth fine line, but some of the rhodium plating has worn off to lose its two-tone original look. It will be difficult to find a nicer vintage pen. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4458 Parker Duofold Jr. Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4458: Parker: Duofold Jr. Desk Pen
Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds are highly sought and beautiful working artifacts of the Roaring '20s. This Parker Duofold Jr. Desk Pen is particularly special because it has a much harder to find 14k gold "Lucky Curve" nib! Click the headline for a close-up. You'll write a very nice medium line. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Plus, it sports a "Christmas Tree" inkfeed. We do not have a desk base for you. It seems as if people either have the base or the pen but not both. Now you can finally complete your set. There is a little chocolate hazing on the section but not the taper. Unfortunately, the taper has some wear. The barrel is mostly clear. 18.2cm.
Vintage Pens: 4368 Sheaffer CBM
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4368: Sheaffer: CBM
From the golf course to the diner, a small pencil can be invaluable. Our Sheaffer CBM is especially nice, as it is New Old Stock with its original price tag from the 1920s! Its pinstriped, gold-filled finish is nearly perfect. Its lead advance and retract mechanism is working perfectly with a twist of the ringtop. Pull out the ring top to reveal the hardened original eraser and the 1.1mm spare leads under it! You'll read the following on the price tag, "CBM 20 yr. G. St. L. $3.50." 9cm.
Vintage Pens: 4375 Esterbrook Dollar Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4375: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
Esterbrook Dollar Pens are always a little bit of a rare treat, but check out the rare triple-incised bands at the bottom of the cap. Click the headline for a close-up. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The outside of the cap and barrel show a little wear from use. No cracks and the clip is on tightly. We missed it initially, but there's a pock mark on the flat tail of the barrel. Cigarette burn? Not sure. You'll write a firm, fine line with its upgraded 9556 nib. These were Esterbrook's top-of-the-line nibs. Of course, if you don't like it, the best part about these pens is that the nibs screw out, and there are at least 3 dozen alternate point sizes to choose from. Plus, this comes with a matching click pencil. Actually, pencil tail cap seems married to the barrel. Works. .9mm lead. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4363 Conklin Rolled-Gold Pencil
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4363: Conklin: Rolled-Gold Pencil
We aren't sure what Conklin called this pinstriped pencil made of rolled gold, but it is a very handsome taste of the 1920s. It is marked "Patented July 6, 1920." We suspect is was made a couple years later. This pen is a little more slender than the 4B and 5V models, but it is the same length. New Old Stock, it is dent and damage free. Twist the nose cone to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. Pull off the tail blind cap to reveal a hardened eraser. Unscrew the eraser to reveal some spare leads. 13.3cm capped.
