Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $299.99
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.

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: 2919 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 2919: Parker: Duofold
Click the headline to see the really rare cap band on this 1942 Parker Duofold. A square decorates then band with a diagonal shape that looks a little like a surf board! It is a standard size model, neither oversized or junior. It has a blind cap tail ring, too! We restored the pen with a new diaphragm. We also lined up the speedline filler so the blind cap is flush with the barrel. The barrel is a darkened amber with some good clarity. The imprint is strong with a 1942 date code. The 14k gold nib is a little warped, writing an extra fine line with a little feedback. No cracks are in the pen, but it has some wear, though nothing egregious. 13cm 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.
Vintage Pens: 2898 Esterbrook Deep V-Clip Slender A
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: 2910: Parker: 51 Flighter
Industrial design lifts the Parker 51 Flighter into the modern age of the 1950s. The all-metal Parker 51 is a slightly rarer treat from that line of pens. NO DENTS! It has some shallow light wear here and there, such as where the cap rubbed against the barrel, but the overall condition is pretty nice. It has a still-working aerometric filler. The 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line with an acceptable amount of feedback. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2911 Parker Duofold

Vintage Pens: 2911: Parker: Duofold
The rarest of the Parker Duofold colors is the sunny Mandarin yellow. This is a working senior size mandarin Parker Duofold pencil in the also rare streamlined design. Free from cracks and major wear, the only real problem is a little brassing on the ball of the clip and on the clip band. The 1.1mm lead advances and retracts with a twist of the tail cap. There is no eraser left, although you can make your own to fit the space where it would go. 13cm.
