Vintage Pens: 4105: Parker: Duofold
We all have issues, and this pen is no different. In spite of it all, this little Parker Duofold is like the Energizer Bunny and just doesn't give up. Its barrel says it is a Lady Duofold, but we are pretty certain most Lady Duofolds had ringtop caps, which likely makes this a bit of a married pen. We restored it with a new ink sac, and its 14k gold nib with an original Christmas tree inkfeed writes a smooth fine line. The long cap band is rare, but it is a little oblong on the cap. It spins but it feels pretty well connected to the cap. There's brassing on the ball of the clip. Click the headline to see the section that is scarred. Look closely to see a little of the barrel threading is missing, too. The cap threads on tightly. It also has a steel button. In closing...looks a little rough but it writes beautifully. A great way into vintage pens. 11.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4104 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4104: Parker: Lucky Curve
Saving people money during the Great Depression, Parker set out to make a more affordable series of pens. This ringtop model is a rare example of an early plastic they used with a really attractive red pattern. The faint imprint says Parker Lucky Curve, however, on restoring the pen, it doesn't have a Lucky Curve feed. In fact, its feed is missing a couple collector fins. We installed a new ink sac and pressure bar. Click the headline to see the old plier mark damage on the section. Its 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine to fine line...AND it has a little FLEX. Overall, the pen only shows light wear. Unfortunately, there is one more hitch. The new pressure bar forces the button to ride a little higher than it used to, and the streamlined blind cap doesn't seat all the way down properly. You can see it in the photo. 11.5cm capped.

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4083: Parker: Duofold
Oversized lapis blue Parker Duofolds this nice are difficult to find. Only the half-inch or so starting at the threads of the barrel are truly discolored and dark. You can see a lot of blue on both the cap and barrel...though especially on the cap. NO CRACKS! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. There's some brassing on cap bands and the ball of the clip. The pen has a few scars including a little mark on the cap below and to the left of the clip, and what look like plier marks on the barrel. The barrel is marked "Lucky Curve," but the inkfeed has a "Christmas tree" look without the "Lucky Curve" internal piece. Its 14k gold nib writes a surprisingly smooth, firm extra-fine line. Chocolate hazing on the cap topper and blind cap. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4081 Sheaffer Lady Skripsert
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4081: Sheaffer: Lady Skripsert
Golden waves lap the silvery shores of our Sheaffer Lady Skripsert fountain pen. Its vibrant red section looks like the snorkel color vermillion, and it still has its original "chalk" mark for nib and pricing. We think this pen is new old stock. We couldn't polish out a blue spot, though, on the barrel just beyond the chalk mark. Click the headline for a close up. It has a fine palladium-silver nib that is firm and has a hint of feedback. No dents or other blemishes. It is a great display piece. You can write with it, too, but it takes a slender Sheaffer cartridge that is no longer in production. If you can find one of these formerly disposable cartridges, you can refill it with a syringe and write all day with it. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4079 Sheaffer Nostalgia Vermeil
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 4079: Sheaffer: Nostalgia Vermeil
Sterling silver coated in gold has to be one of the most luxurious pens Sheaffer made in the 1970s. Our Sheaffer Nostalgia features the rare floral print pattern in the vermeil finish. Click the headline for close-ups of the glittering finish that is free of any dents or scratches. Best of all, you will write a soft, buttery smooth, wet medium line with the two-tone 18k gold nib! Included with the vintage pen is its original squeeze-bar converter that still works. Yet, even when it gives up the ghost, you can still use modern Sheaffer converters and cartridges. Modeled after the company's pens of the 1920s. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4075 Sheaffer Lifetime Telephone Dialer
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4075: Sheaffer: Lifetime Telephone Dialer
Way back in the 20th century we had curious inventions known as telephones. They were simple electrical devices that allowed people to talk to each other over long distances. No texting. No videos. No camera. Just talking. To place a call, as it was known, you'd have to spin a ring to connect to a different phone's number. Sheaffer Lifetime Telephone Dialer pens included a special tail to help people spin the ring and dial a number. Definitely on the rarer side of Sheaffer collection, these pens are a real treat. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The jade green celluloid has only a few spots of discoloring and looks amazingly sharp. Click the headline for a close up. 14k gold nib writes a delightfully smooth, wet fine line. There is a little wobble in the nib between the left shoulder and section. Its matching pencil still works! Takes 1.1mm lead. 14.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4073 Sheaffer Balance Abalone
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4073: Sheaffer: Balance Abalone
Glittering abalone shell sets inlaid into the ebonite cap and barrel of our oversized Sheaffer Balance Lifetime. As much a piece of jewelry as it is a functional daily writer, and we are happily surprised that the abalone isn't heavily discolored. Unfortunately, the cap and barrel have some deep scratches and obvious wear. No cracks and fully restored with a new ink sac. You will find brassing on the pocket clip and cap band. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a firm, extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4039 Sheaffer PFM V
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 4039: Sheaffer: PFM V
What do the Ford Edsel and Sheaffer PFM have in common. They were masterpieces of 1950s design and technology that were completely overlooked in their time and adored by later generations. Sheaffer's "Pen for Men" came in 5 different model types and our Sheaffer PFM V was the pinnacle with a gold-plated cap and tail piece. We didn't restore this pen, but we got it from a customer who had it restored a couple years ago. It is still in good working order, and its 14k gold inlaid nib writes a lush broad line with a little feedback. Unlike earlier snorkel pens, this vintage pen is thicker and easier to grip without cramping your hand. Theres a shadow of a dent in the cap that we can't seem to photograph, but the pen is in overall good condition with a little other wear from past use. The cap jiggles a little, and the closure is good but not as tight as it once was. 13.5cm capped.
