Vintage Pens: 3150: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal
Stunning is our favorite way to describe the still perfect green on this Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal fountain pen from the late 1920s or early 1930s. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is the senior/oversized model. Discoloration is obvious on this pen, and we show the worst of it in the photo so there are no surprises. No cracks mar the surface of this vintage pen. You can find some brassing on the Greek key design of the cap band and other pieces of trim. Click the headline to see a great close-up of the 14k gold manifold nib. It writes a firm, smooth medium line. 13.1cm capped.

Era: 1950-1959
Price: $289.99
Vintage Pens: 3123: Pelikan: 100
Pelikan 100 pens are great vintage pens from before and after the second world war. This one is fully restored with a fresh piston seal. The tail twist knob is smooth, without gripping stripes. The pen has some wear, the worst of which is heavy brassing on the clip and almost complete brassing on the cap bands. Its 14k gold nib writes a smooth extra-fine line with a little flex. Click the headline for a close-up. It's imprint on the top of the cap is almost completely faded. 11.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3135 Gold Bond Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3135: Gold Bond: Fountain Pen
Who was Katherine Harper in 1930s? Aviatrix? Journalist? Secretary? Teacher? We might never know, but she did write with a Gold Bond "Stonite" fountain pen that is about the same size as a Parker Duofold Jr. We restored it with a new ink sac, and it is ready to serve once again. Although it is pretty heavily discolored in the celluloid and ebonite section, it is in good cosmetic condition. No cracks, minimal wear and minimal brassing...mostly only on the filling lever. Its original 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little flex and feedback. 11.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3124 Pelikan 100
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 3124: Pelikan: 100
Okay. So we got the original description a little wrong. The nib and box are not accurate for the pen...although everything fits! The pen might be from the late 1940s or 1950s. The pencil might be older, as it is marked "D.R.P." We are selling it on behalf of a fairly well-known Pelikan restoration master. The pen's piston seal has been replaced and it works well. We'd say there was moderate wear on the pen. It can't hide its scratches. You can see a little gap where the cap falls just short of the green sleeve on the pen. Fractals are visible but not leaking in the green ink view window. Its 14c gold nib writes an extra-fine semi-flex line with a little feedback. Although the pen has no "D.R.P" marks that we could find, the pencil does. It is a great working click pencil! Pen measures 11.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3115 Eclipse Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3115: Eclipse: Fountain Pen
Oversized Eclipse pens from the 1920s are getting more difficult to find. However, we are happy to offer this handsome model in black. It does not appear to be hard rubber! We warmed it up and gave it a sniff. It definitely didn't have a smell. It is restored with a fresh ink sac. We think the most unique part about this vintage pen is that the brand Eclipse is written in a script font on the pocket clip! No cracks. No engravings. The pinstripes-and-squares pattern is a little worn in places. Scratching and brassing appear heavily on the cap band and lightly on the clip. Its 14k gold Warranted nib appears to be a size 4 or 5. The nib has a little hook downward, but it writes a great, smooth semi-flex extra-fine to 1mm. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3100 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3100: Parker: 51
Hip, hip, hooray! The class of 1942 celebrated in style with this first-year 1941 Parker 51! Well, partly first year 51. Marketing material for the grand release of the Parker 51 in 1941 said that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time, which is why it was called the 51. Only first-year pens were given the aluminum tail jewel in the blind cap. Although the imprint seems to have worn off, the "Class of '42" engraving seems to be a nice verification of age. We are a little perplexed that the pen looks more teal blue than cedar blue, as would be appropriate. The sterling silver cap, which is in great condition, is a later model replacement cap. It still has a blue-diamond clip, but the jewel is plastic grey pearl--not aluminum. This vintage pen's diaphragm has been replaced, and it is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Light wear can be found in all the usual places. No cracks or dents. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1033 Senator Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $99.99  Was: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 1033: Senator: Fountain Pen
This vintage fountain pen by Senator is in good working order, unrestored by us. The pen still fills with a twist of the piston in the tail. The viewing window is still mostly clean and green. This is a wider bodied large model. It has a plated iridium nib. Click the headline font to see it up close. You will notice a little separation of the tines. It still writes a reasonably smooth medium to medium-broad line. The pen has some wear and a couple little scuffs, but there are no cracks. There is a little discoloration on the pocket clip. 12.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 1075: Sheaffer: Crest
Sheaffer Crest fountain pens are easily identified by their gold-filled caps on normal Sheaffer Snorkel pens. This vintage pen sports a nice pastel green barrel. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac, O-ring and snorkel gasket. The snorkel itself is a rare 14k gold tube, which means this is a first-year pen from 1952. Just wait until you write with it. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a super-smooth, medium line. There's only a little wear an light scratching on the body. The cap is free of scratches and dents, except directly under the clip, which is a little off kilter. Filing it under "Nobody's Perfect," the skirted nib has a little seepage where the gold meets the plastic. We have tried sealing it with rubber cement to no avail. As it is a great writer, be sure just not to hold it that low, and you'll be fine. When full, keep it nib up when not in use, and that will also minimize seepage. 14cm capped.
