Vintage Pens: 1948: Parker: 75
In the 1960s, Parker released its last serious luxury fountain pen of the vintage pen era. It was the Parker 75. This one is made of solid sterling silver. Its crosscut design would go on to be featured in many future pens, but it found its footing in this one. There are no dents or blemishes to the cap or barrel, except some roughed up spot around the cap band. The top "tassie" has a two-tone "dish" design, but the bottom one is a monotone dish. It is a French-made pen. The 14k gold nib writes a fine line with a hint of feedback, even though the feed is marked medium. One of the nice things about these pens is that you can gently turn the nib to better suite the angle of your writing style. Plastic section threads, original converter that still works. Will take a modern converter and cartridges! 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1953 Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Equipoise
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 1953: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal Equipoise
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.
Vintage Pens: 1952 Wahl-Eversharp Oversized Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1952: Wahl-Eversharp: Oversized Fountain Pen
Oversized. Buttery smooth nib. Flexible nib. Fully restored with a large ink sac. We suspect this Wahl pen is many vintage pen collector's perfect daydream. Yes, there is a small crack in the lip of the cap, which has more discoloration than the barrel. But, write with this huge, handsome devil, and you will forget about all of its imperfections. The original 14k gold nib is a huge size 6. It doesn't have a lot of flex, but it does have some. We mentioned it is a buttery smooth, wet medium writer, right? Wide girth, light weight means hours of writing without cramping. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1951: Wahl-Eversharp: Ripple
Orange hard rubber looks best with a ripple pattern such as this vintage Wahl pen. Complete and working with a fresh ink sac, this pen is free of cracks and much significant wear. It has an unusually long black hard rubber section. It looks a little fresher and less faded just under where the cap protects the barrel. The rolling ball of the clip has some brassing. The original 14k gold nib writes a really smooth, wet medium line. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1949: Parker: 75
Our golden Parker 75 is nearly new old stock. Except for a very thin line where a the cap posted once or twice some time in the past 40 years. This is a French-made vintage pen for Parker. Unique imprints are a tiny "YC" on the cap band and a shield with "PP" divided by a Parker arrow. The pen comes with a modern Parker converter. The 14k gold nib writes a very smooth medium line. The section has plastic, not metal, threads. The top and bottom of the pen have a two-level dish design. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1947 Waterman C/F Set
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 1947: Waterman: C/F Set
Waterman hit the market in 1955 with the first modern-era plastic cartridge pen. It was called the Waterman C/F (Cartridge Fill). This is a complete Waterman C/F pen and pencil set still in its box. The pencil advances lead with a twist of its tail, but it needs pressure to help retract the lead. It features some light wear. The vintage pen's cap and barrel also show wear from use. The most noticeable wear is near the nib where gold-plated trim on either side shows heavy brassing. The original 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth medium line! The only problem is that these pens do not take modern Waterman cartridges or converters. You will have to find an old one that still fits that you can refill fill a syringe. Made in Canada. Pen measures 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1940 Esterbrook J-2668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 1940: Esterbrook: J-2668
Esterbrook pens taught the Baby Boom generation how to write using an ink pen. Extremely popular for their bright colors and interchangeable nibs, they were required writing instruments by many high schools, shorthand schools and journalism schools. They remain the #1 selling pen on this website! We have fully restored this J-model pen with a new ink sac. The steel 2668 nib was originally advertised as being for "General Writing." We dipped it, and it seems to write a wet medium for us. J-models were the widest pens of the Esterbrook line at the time, which makes them much easier to hold for people with arthritis and troubles with hand cramps. Our grey-green beauty has some light wear, a weak imprint and no cracks. We think it started as a deeper green but faded over the years. The threads covered by the cap are much darker than the cap and barrel. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1937 Waterman 452
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1937: Waterman: 452
Vintage pen fanatics, try not to ruin your keyboard by drooling over it. Our Waterman 452 with Sterling Silver filigree is as close to minty fresh as a 90-year-old pen can get. NO chips, dents or cracks. Powerfully strong imprints on the silver and the tail 452. The side-tail imprint is a little faded in parts. Two silver bolts are where the clip would be, but there is no clip. There are some light scratches in the silver and around the BHR where the cap screws onto the barrel. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib writes a razor sharp extra fine to a nearly 2mm triple broad! BEFORE YOU GET TOO EXCITED about the nib, you will need to spend some serious time training the nib and adjusting to its characteristics. It is rather stiff for a flexi nib, but with lots of time, practice and effort you can both train it to write more the way you want it to, and you can learn what it won't let you train. Take it easy and go slowly with it. 13.7cm capped.
