Vintage Pens: Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Equipoise

Vintage Pens: 1953 Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Equipoise
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $249.99
Glittering gold swirls its way through the green celluloid of this classic vintage pen. Our Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal is an Equipoise...we think. A rival had a similar pen listed as such, but most other Equipoise pens don't have the black topper with a gold center or a black bottom cap. The rest is pretty spot on. The thicker middle cap band has a diamond cut pattern of diagonal lines. There are no cracks or brassing. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. The original 14k gold nib is marked "Gold Seal Manifold." It writes a buttery smooth fine line on a dip. Aside from some light wear, the only major flaw is some grey taking over the gold in the first half of the barrel of the pen. Click the headline for closeups. 12.1cm capped.
