Vintage Pens: 4245: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
Esterbrooks became a household favorite starting with the Dollar Pen line. Esterbrook Dollar Pens were affordable, easy to maintain and even easier to customize to one's own personal writing experience with cheap and easily replaced nibs. However, there's nothing cheap or ordinary about the steel 3556 nib on this vintage pen. It is a rare sunburst nib from the 3000s' series! These early nibs are very hard to find, and it writes a beautiful fine line that has a little feedback that we don't find distracting at all. A lovely writer. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, minimal wear. Strong imprint on this copper-color pen. Its matching pencil is a few shades lighter and is a working click lead-advance systems. It uses and comes with a couple of spare 1.1mm leads. Click the headline for close-ups. No eraser. Pen is the larger size, measuring 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4238: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
Ruby red Esterbrook Dollar Pens are a little rarer than the other colors. This is the shorter version of the Dollar Pen, but the pencil is the standard "P" model. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. There are no cracks, but it shows some wear from use. Its steel 1550 nib writes an extra-fine line with some feedback. Basically, it is fine enough to be an accountant's nib! The pencil is in better cosmetic condition and works great. An early click pen, it comes with extra 1.1mm leads. No eraser. Pen measures 11.1mm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4235: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
Sunburst nibs are rare treasures for Esterbrook collectors. Click the headline to see a close up of the sunburst 3556 "Osmiridium Tip" nib on our Esterbrook Dollar Pen set. We restored this handsome grey vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, only minor wear from use. Its matching pencil is also on the rare side, as it is an early clicker lead-advance pencil. No eraser, but it has spare 1.1mm leads. Back to the fountain pen, its nib has some loss of luster on the nib. However, the nib writes a nice fine line with a little feedback. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4168 Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4168: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Model B
There are two reasons we think Esterbrook fans are going to love this Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B. On first glance you'll see the very rare 3 incised cap bands. A closer look will reveal the semi-rare steel 2788 nib! You will write a wet, medium-broad line with the nib normally...BUT it also is a semi-flex that can go much broader. It gets a little scratchy on ascenders and descenders, but it is smooth in the middle. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, strong imprint. Light wear from use. 12.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4155 Wahl-Eversharp Desk Pen Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4155: Wahl-Eversharp: Desk Pen Set
A brace of woodgrain Wahl desk pens is ideal for the person with the rare 2-pen desk base that is missing its pens. We restored each with a new ink sac, and we are stunned at how minimal their wear is. No cracks, no chips, no scratches! The gold-plated trim rings and levers have some corrosion or gunk or brassing that won't polish out for us. Click their headline for a closer look at the whole pens and the nibs. The more vibrant, front desk pen comes with a 14k gold "Wahl Signature Pen" nib that writes a fine-medium line nicely with a little feedback. The duller-finished back pen sports a "Wahl 6 14k" nib that writes a blissfully smooth wet medium-broad line. The back pen measures 22cm and the front pen measures 21.8cm.
Vintage Pens: 4150 Eclipse Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4150: Eclipse: Desk Pen
Joining us from either the late 1920s or the early 1930s is this Eclipse desk pen. We find it is a unique vintage pen. It has a celluloid barrel but a hard-rubber taper and section. Both of those elements are showing discoloration. Its nib is a Canadian-made "Warranted" nib of 14k gold. It writes very smoothly as a broad nib at a very low angle of attack on the paper. If you hold it more vertically, it is finer and scratchier. It should be easily shaped to whatever point you like best by a nibsmith. We restored it with a new ink sac. No desk base, just the pen. 20cm.
Vintage Pens: 4149 Sheaffer Stratowriter Desk Set
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4149: Sheaffer: Stratowriter Desk Set
Early Sheaffer ballpoint desk pens aren't an everyday find. We think these are desk versions of Stratowriters, but we could be wrong. All they say is that they are "Gold Electroplated" with a crown. Does the crown make them Imperials? We aren't sure, but we saved them from old age and corrosion. Click the headline to look past the glittering shine. You can still see a lot of damage to the finish of the electroplating. There's even a spot of steel visible on one of the tapers. Both tapers have white dots, but we wanted to show off the worst of the wear, damage and corrosion that remains. We think these take the original refills that are no longer made but replaced by clever means out there on the web. 17.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 4107 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4107: Parker: Lucky Curve
There's so much to love about this Parker Lucky Curve...and so much to be disappointed by. On the one hand, this vintage pen has an excellent cap and barrel with no cracks and sharp pinstripe chasing as well as a clean imprint. But the cap band has a lot of brassing on the bottom edge. We'ver restored it with a new ink sac. It has its original intact Lucky Curve feed AND an original Parker Lucky Curve P3X nib! Click the headline to see a close-up. That image is magnified close to 10 times its original size, but it still doesn't show the huge hairline crack sprouting out through the 3 and drifting to the right of the breather hole. You can almost see a little crack leading toward the section from the breather hole. This rarer vintage nib of 14k gold writes a smooth fine line, and in its younger days had reliable flex...but now if you try to flex it, you might split the nib in two. Be very careful if you chose to write with it. 11.8cm capped.
