Era: 1960-1979
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 2705: Parker: 75 Independence Hall
Why on earth would a Parker 75 come in pewter, with a wooden disc in the top of the cap? 1776! Now that's the spirit! This is an American Bicentennial celebration Parker 75. On the cap is the factory engraved: "Wood in this limited edition pen is a relic of Independence Hall Philadelphia - 1776". A believe the pewter is a tribute to Sam Adams: metal smith, brewer and patriot. You won't find a dent in the pen. There's only light surface wear, if any. Sorry. We don't have the original box and papers. However, we are reasonably sure this is an authentic original. The section collar has hash marks to help align the nib best with your grip. The section has plastic threads. It comes with an original working converter. You can use modern Parker converters and cartridges with this pen. We do not think the pen has been inked. Inkfeed indicates a medium nib. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3036: Parker: Vacumatic
Rare red marbled Parker Vacumatics are pretty hard to find these days, but we proudly restored this one to excellent working order. It has great barrel clarity, in addition to a new diaphragm. Yes, one Albert Vannucci purchased this pen in 1937. Yet, it shouldn't be enough to make one turn their nose up a this hard-to-find double jewel design. There are no cracks! A few scratches and wear from use are visible. The clip has brassing and some wavy wear, which is very visible in the photo when you click the headline. Still, the clip is on tightly, and the rest of the pen is pretty nice. The 14k gold nib writes a nice medium line with only light feedback, particularly on high ascenders and deep descenders. Considered a "major" compared to an oversized "Maxima," it is much wider than the 1940s Vac Majors. 12.2cm capped.

Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3034: Parker: 51
Double-jewel Parker 51s seem to get more and more difficult to find at affordable prices, but we have a classic black one with a sterling silver cap ready for you. Hailing from 1942, this vintage pen classic has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. The hood has some scratches visible in the photo. Click the headline for a better view. The blind cap is only slightly off its alignment. The silver cap is especially nice. In spite of some wear spots, there are no dents. The blue diamond on the clip indicates it had a lifetime warranty for the life of its original owner. The original 14k gold nib looks a little wonky under a loupe, but it writes a very nice fine-medium line. No cracks. A great daily writer. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3026 National Pen Co. Lakeside
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3026: National Pen Co.: Lakeside
Often overlooked are pens by Chicago's own National Pen Company. A serious rival to Parker and Sheaffer in the 1920s, they made beautiful, high-quality fountain pens. Some of their early celluloids are stunningly gorgeous. This is an even earlier pen, the oversized National Lakeside. Made from black hard rubber, it is in excellent condition with minimal chocolate hazing on the barrel, no cracks anywhere and very little wear. There's a little brassing on the lever and pocket clip. The barrel imprint is faded in the middle. Click the headline to see the nib, and you can see old plier marks on the section from a past repairman many decades ago. We installed a new ink sac. The Warranted 14k gold nib is a #8 that writes a fine line with a hint of feedback that "sings" as you write. It writes well enough, in spite of the feedback. Oversized but not too large you can't write with it comfortably. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2895 Esterbrook Cracked Ice Light Ivory
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $799.99
Vintage Pens: 2895: Esterbrook: Cracked Ice Light Ivory
Esterbrook fans can really geek out on this gorgeous pen and pencil SET! Yep. It is nearly a perfect Esterbrook Cracked Ice Dollar Pen in "light ivory." No actual cracks. It is stunning. Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaws are nearly invisible to the eye. However, you can feel some light scratches and shallow chew marks near the tail. The only discoloration appears to be a little ink staining that got between the inner cap and outer cap. The pencil is in perfect working order with a 1.1mm lead and a hardened eraser under the tail cap. The fountain pen's nib is the older, rarer 3000 series! It is a 3556 Osmiridium Tip that is a little wonky in the photo and scratchy, but it is so rare that it is worth taking to a better nib meister than us. Click the headline for close-ups.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 2898: Esterbrook: Deep V-Clip Slender A
So many rarities for one vintage pen! Our Esterbrook Deep V-Clip pen is pretty easy to spot, with that clip which was only made between 1930 and 1935. This is the Slender A model of the pen. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac, but we think you're going to flip your lid for its really rare Art Deco designed 3556 nib! Click the headline for a close up. Any 3000 series nib is really impressive. This one writes a very nice extra-fine line. Extra-fine fans will likely say it is pretty smooth for an extra fine, but there is a hint of feedback if you aren't used to extra fines. Light to moderate wear in places. A really clean imprint. 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2904: LeBoeuf: #8
If you are really looking to dazzle at the next pen club meeting or impress your friends online, how about this ultra rare oversized LeBoeuf #8 vintage pen. One of the first companies to perfect celluloid pen production, this model from the very early 1930s is an impressive light ivory color with a butterscotch vein running through it. It has a few spots of discoloration, but it is in much better condition than a lot of early ivory celluloids. Fill the pen by sliding the entire barrel back to reveal a fully restored squeeze bar system. No cracks in the celluloid, light wear, some brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib sports a crack running from the section up to the 8. Click the headline for a close-up. The nib writes a dry, extra-fine line well without pressure but gets scratchy in a hurry when you add any pressure. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2905: LeBoeuf: #8
Among the most sought vintage pens are oversized LeBoeuf pens...such as this one. Although there is some speculation about LeBoeuf being the first company to successfully create fountain pens using celluloid tubing (not rod stock), there is no denying the stunning beauty of their early efforts! Fully restored with a new ink sac and all of its original parts, this is a sleeve filler. The back half of the barrel slides back to reveal what Parker fans might think of as an aerometric squeeze filler. Its pearl-and-black design is in amazingly good condition with a few spots of discoloration you see in the photo. (Click headline for close-ups.) No cracks! A little clip brassing. There is a deep scratch around the tail and a wear mark where the lip of the cap rests against the barrel. Otherwise, only light wear. The large size 8, 14k gold nib writes a medium line with a slightly flattened tip that gives it some line variation! Technically, it even has a tiny bit of flex. 13.4cm capped.
