Vintage Pens: 3388 Parker 61 MK III Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3388: Parker: 61 MK III Flighter
Even the great Parker 61 saw a couple of updates in its run. The MK III Flighter was the all brushed steel version of the pen with a cartridge-converter fill system...unlike the original capillary filler. This pen comes with its original converter, but it should be able to take a modern Parker converter, too. It definitely will take modern Parker cartridges. The pen has a little wear from use. You'll write a medium line with the 14k gold nib that has a little feedback. 13.5cm capped.

Click the headline to see close-ups of not only the front of the button but its inscribed back! Not anybody could earn this lapel pin. It is pretty cool to see the classic writing hardware. It is about the size of a dime.
Vintage Pens: 4013 Waterman 452
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $750.00
Vintage Pens: 4013: Waterman: 452
Hand-engraved sterling silver Waterman's fountain pens are true treasures, especially when paired with a FLEXI 14k gold nib that writes extra fine to about 1.25cm. Shading closer to semi-flex, this classic #2 nib isn't a wet noodle. Nevertheless, it is a smooth treat with which to write. We are selling this pen on behalf of the brilliant pen-repair tool designer Stuart Hawkinson, and he calls the engraving on the barrel and cap "floral vine." The sleeves of the cap and barrel are marked sterling and show no dents and minimal wear. There are no initials in the window left on the barrel. The pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. BUT WAIT, there's more! You get the matching pencil that still works, too! It comes loaded with a 1.1mm lead that entends but doesn't necessarily retract with the mechanism that does retract. Our favorite detail is that the pocket clips are also engraved! Pen measures 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3995 Sheaffer Milady Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3995: Sheaffer: Milady Balance
As far as rose glow Sheaffers go, this is one of the rose glowiest we've seen. Rotate this Sheaffer Milady Balance set under a strong light and you'll see a great diversity of shadings between dusty pink and an almost burgundy pink, as well as delightful runs of grey in the rare celluloid. The fountain pen sports a new ink sac, and you can still see through the slightly clouded viewing window. No cracks, a spot of brassing on the cap band and just a little bit of wear from use. A nice crisp imprint on the pen and pencil. The pencil has some deeper nicks on the cap, but they are really hard to see unless intentionally looking for them. No brassing or cracks. Plus, the 1.1mm pencil works well, has extra leads and a hardened eraser under the cap. You'll write a fine line with a little feedback AND a little flex with the 14k gold nib. Slender pen measures 12.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3969 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 3969: Parker: 51
Time to cash in on that grail pen you've always wanted, Parker 51 fans. We have a nearly mint condition Yellowstone/Mustard Yellow Parker 51. There's hardly a trace of wear outside of where the cap snugs against the hood, and even that is feint. When we opened the pen to put in a fresh diaphragm, there was nothing in the barrel. A previous owner had already given the pen as thorough a cleaning as possible. As such, we didn't install.a new diaphragm. We suspect it has seen ink at some point, as light through the pen shows some dark spots under the hood, but, holy cats, this pen is still worthy of a museum. Its gold-filled cap saw more wear. There are a few dimples and scratches. We replaced the missing top jewel with a new, reproduction jewel. Its 14k gold nib is either an extra fine or fine. It could use a really good tuning to become a daily writer, but we suspect most people will want this vintage pen as a display piece.
Vintage Pens: 3963 Sheaffer Lady Skripsert
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3963: Sheaffer: Lady Skripsert
We need the glamour of the 1950s more than ever, and our Sheaffer Lady Skripsert pen in Brocade Silver with Brilliants is a great way to light the way. Suitable for a princess, we offer this classic vintage pen complete with its original box. The box is marked "Xmas 1959 from Kelly" on the back in beautiful cursive writing. The cap of the pen is nearly perfect except for a mark on the very top where it might have been dropped. The barrel has a couple black spots and wear on the tip of the back end. All of the "brilliants" are accounted for, but one is much darker than the others. Its 14k gold nib is marked F9, and it writes a very firm, thick fine line with a bit of feedback. These pens used a slimmer version of the Sheaffer cartridge that is no longer in production today. However, the pen comes with a used cartridge that you can refill with a syringe. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3966 Conklin Endura Senior
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $549.99
Vintage Pens: 3966: Conklin: Endura Senior
Lapis lazuli looks like moonlight glinting off the ocean on this stunning blue Conklin Endura Senior. A classic from Toledo, Ohio, this vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, no brassing...only minimal wear, this pen belongs in a museum. We did not repaint the orange trim rings, and, as far as we know, it is original paint. Its original 14k gold nib writes a very firm, fine line that leans closer to extra fine. Click the headline for a great close-up photo. Its oversized zen makes for easier gripping. A phenomenal pen for use or display. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1075 Sheaffer Crest
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $149.99
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.
