Vintage Pens: 1034 Senator Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $85.00
Vintage Pens: 1034: Senator: Fountain Pen
We are not sure if this is from the 1970s or 1980s, but it is a nifty seemingly new old stock fountain pen. This vintage pen has a crystal clear ink viewing window and a smooth working piston filler. Our Senator pen comes with a smooth-writing 14k gold nib. It writes a medium line. There are no cracks or blemishes. 13.1cm capped

Vintage Pens: 0898 National Pen Co. Gold Medal
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99  Was: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 0898: National Pen Co.: Gold Medal
Hold on to your fedoras! This blast from the past is a National Pen Company pen oversized Gold Medal pen in excellent condition. Chicago born and bred, this orange ripple hard rubber beauty has no cracks or egregious scratches. There is some slight wear and a little brassing on the bottom cap band and a lot of brassing on the ball of the clip. It has been fully restored with a large new ink sac. The strong imprint reads "National Pen Products Co./Gold Medal Pen/Chicago, Ill." The large size 8 14k gold nib is visible when you click the headline font. It has a short tip, which takes a little adjusting to write with. It writes a fairly smooth fine-medium line, but the ascenders and descenders have a hint of scratch that should smooth out when you write with it more. We don't know if the nib is original. It claims "Diamond Point," which might very well have been an imprint company of National Pen Co. While from the '20s, it might not be the original nib. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1084 Esterbrook SJ-2556
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 1084: Esterbrook: SJ-2556
These copper colored Esterbrooks always remind us of a sunny autumn day. This long, slender SJ model is NEW OLD STOCK! Click the headline photo, and you can see the original sticker on the back of the cap! We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. There are no cracks, chips or dings. A little wear from where it likely got moved from time to time. The clip is tight. This handsome pen is ready to go. The original 2556 steel nib writes a firm fine line. The 2000 series was considered an upgrade from the 1000 series nibs. This one writes with a smooth, wet fine line. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1106 Duo Fast Stapler
Filling Mechanism: Staples
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 1106: Duo Fast: Stapler
Sometimes it isn't enough to have just a pen in your pocket. Sometimes you need a stapler, too. That's where the Duo Fast Stapler comes in extra handy, as it is the size of a pen and ready for use in your shirt, coat or purse pocket! We suspect this little helper came from the 1950s or '60s. It has a steel cap with what look like a couple of staple dents. The grey barrel is great with a little wear. The stapler still works. A gentleman who bought one of these from us several months ago said he was still able to find staples for it on amazon or eBay! This one comes loaded and ready for service. It also has a little safety catch in the center back of the pen so you don't burn a staple every time you cap it. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1033 Senator Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 1033: Senator: Fountain Pen
This vintage fountain pen by Senator is in good working order, unrestored by us. The pen still fills with a twist of the piston in the tail. The viewing window is still mostly clean and green. This is a wider bodied large model. It has a plated iridium nib. Click the headline font to see it up close. You will notice a little separation of the tines. It still writes a reasonably smooth medium to medium-broad line. The pen has some wear and a couple little scuffs, but there are no cracks. There is a little discoloration on the pocket clip. 12.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1044 Waterman 52 1/2 V
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $65.00
Vintage Pens: 1044: Waterman: 52 1/2 V
With a little pixie dust and a steel Peter Pan nib, we got this beautiful orange hard rubber Waterman's 52 1/2 V fully restored and writing fantastically well. Purists will find fault with the nib, but it writes such a deliciously wet smooth medium line. The rest of the pen is in near mint condition. No cracks or chips. Only the lightest of wear. Strong imprints. Plus, it comes with its original pencil in its original box! Both are likewise in great condition. The pencil has no lead, but the lead feed moves smoothly up and down. Click the headline font to see the nib up close, and you can see through the breather hole that the inkfeed also is orange! Pen measures 10.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0764 Esterbrook LJ-1550
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0764: Esterbrook: LJ-1550
Why is the Esterbrook LJ model still so popular today? It has the honor of being the first fountain pen of nearly an entire generation. This slender black Esterbrook LJ has some wear and scratches from daily use back in the day, but it has been fully restored with a new ink sac and is ready for a active service once again. There are no cracks, the imprint is strong and the clip is on tight. It comes with a steel 1550 nib, which you can see when you click the headline font. It writes a firm, smooth medium line. 11.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1032 Penol Ambassador Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1032: Penol: Ambassador Senior
Penol was created by Christian Olsen who helped develop Parker pens in Denmark. This Penol Ambassador Senior was the largest of the line, which was sold during the 1940s. It uses a button-filler just like the Duofold. You can see a strong Penol imprint on the barrel, but the "Ambassador" is a bit faded. Light wear adds character to the pen, but there are no chips, cracks or dents. We polished up the cap bands, but there is heavy brassing, with more on the slightly loose clip. The jewel is a little off kilter, but the blue ring of enamel surrounding it is still intact. We are selling this pen for a friend and aren't sure when it was last sac'ed, but it fills easily without any problems. The original Penol Deluxe nib writes a smooth fine line. If you click the headline you can see it isn't marked as gold, and the stamped areas seem to show steel...which isn't surprising given these pens were first made during Nazi occupation. A unique piece for your collection. 13.1cm capped.
