Vintage Pens: 4776 Sheaffer Oversized Lifetime Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4776: Sheaffer: Oversized Lifetime Balance
If you are looking for an oversized Sheaffer Lifetime Balance pen that is bordering on can stop looking. Our shining black beauty is scratchless and crackless. It has a strong imprint. Naturally, it is restored with a new ink sac. It only has two minor flaws. First, a shade of plating missing from the bottom of the pocket clip. Second, the cap band jiggles a little. We don't think the cap band is in danger of coming off; it just wiggles a little. Click the headline for a close-up of the rarish two-tone 14k gold nib over a flat feed. If you like dry, extra-fine lines, you'll love this pen. It is so dry we worry it might have a flow problem, but if you're an extra fine fan, you might already know how to work around that. Otherwise, it is close to museum worthy. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4770 Waterman 56
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $599.99
Vintage Pens: 4770: Waterman: 56
Vintage Waterman pens are highly desirable to begin with, but when you add decorative gold-plated trim and a factory oblique nib from the 1920s, there is so much more to love. Our vintage pen is a Waterman 56 that is fully restored with a new ink sac. It was reblackened by its previous owner, and it looks almost new out of the factory. No cracks or scratches. Its 56 still has a little orange left in it. Crisp imprint and chasing. Its pocket clip is marked "18k Filled Clip-Cap." It also sports a unique secondary imprint: "National / Live Stock Producer." You will write with some nice bounce on its 14k gold OBLIQUE nib. The nib has a crisp edge for specialized writing and might take a little getting used to, if you do not normally use oblique nibs. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4765 Parker 61 Flighter GT
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4765: Parker: 61 Flighter GT
Made in England! British Parkers sometimes have different model names, but we think this is a Parker 61 Flighter GT. This pen is in great condition with some light wear from use but no dents or cracks. You fill the pen with a aerometric-style converter. It also uses Parker ink cartridges. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. However, it might get closer to fine with more consistent use. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4764 Parker 61 Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Capillary
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4764: Parker: 61 Flighter
In 1957, Parker released the last truly brilliant new filling mechanism before cartridge/converters took over the scene. Its revolutionary Parker 61 came with a capillary filler. Simple and ingenius, all you have to do is dip the Teflon-coated tail of the filler in ink. Capillary action sucks ink up into the pen. These pens were made during a time when very few people ever changed their ink colors. As such, this is a great pen for using the same color all of the time. It is difficult to flush and change colors easily. All the same, this vintage pen's 14k gold nib writes a beautifully smooth fine line. No dents or cracks in the steel Flighter design but it was a daily user with the light to moderate wear you'd expect. Its plastic hood, has a scar where the cap closes against it. Flighters were one of the rarer designs, and this is still a great pen. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4731 Sheaffer Click Ballpoint
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $25.00
Vintage Pens: 4731: Sheaffer: Click Ballpoint
Is it an Imperial? Is it a PFM? Sheaffer PFM-I pencils look exactly like this New Old Stock Sheaffer ballpoint pen. You can see the original price mark on the barrel in the photo. It appears to be in great working order, but it needs one of those early Sheaffer ballpoint refills with the "boat propeller" tail piece to work. Unfortunately, we don't have one. You can convert modern Sheaffer refills to accommodate these pens if you find an old plastic refill tail piece and put it on a modern refill. The clip acts as the clicker on this pen, but it might not stick up as you see here, until it has a refill. Nevertheless, the price is right.
Vintage Pens: 4559 Parker Duofold International
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4559: Parker: Duofold International
So close to perfection, it is painful. Tragically, this otherwise mint condition Parker Duofold senior fountain pen made of orange hard rubber, has a triangle shaped hole in its side where the rubber blew apart. We super-glued Humpty Dumpty back together, and it looks like a museum piece with the cap closed. Such sharp, crisp milling on the cap and tail ends! No brassing. An original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. An original box! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its 14k gold original nib writes a smooth fine line. Everything works great. Too bad about the side of the barrel. Its button filler is also pretty chewed up, BUT we think it is solid 14k gold! Click the headline for close-ups. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4517 Parker Oversize Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $899.99
Vintage Pens: 4517: Parker: Oversize Vacumatic
Perfection is difficult to achieve in vintage pens, but this 1940 Oversize Parker Vacumatic gets close. No cracks, only light wear and incredible barrel clarity with celluloid that is on the light orange-dark yellow spectrum. No brassing. A feint barrel imprint. Close to perfect two-tone plating for the 14k gold nib. (Click the headline for a close-up.) YET, as you can see on the main photo, the name "James A. Kunkel" is engraved on the barrel. We looked up the name, and there are too many James Kunkels to know who owned this specific pen. You'll write an extra-fine line that is a bit dry but can sometimes look fine. Restored and in great working order. Museum worthy rare burgundy...yet, still a good writer. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4527: Parker: Vacumatic Set
In 1936, Fred & Ginger lit up the silver screen in the classic "Swingtime," King Edward VIII abdicated the British throne to marry an American divorcé, television broadcasts first began, Jesse Owens showed up the Nazis in Berlin, Joe DiMaggio was a rookie, FDR won a second term and this Parker Vacumatic standard set in burgundy was made. It was an elegant era, and this pen in many respects marks the pinnacle of art deco design. This particular set is in excellent condition. No cracks, maybe 1% brassing, no scratches, restored and working. Its two-tone 14k has some cosmetic issues. Click the headline to see close-ups. It writes an extra-fine line with a little flex but not much. The matching pencil works great in excellent condition and comes with spare 1.1mm leads. Pen measures 12.8cm capped.
