Vintage Pens: 0895 Sheaffer Targa
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0895: Sheaffer: Targa
Stately elegance defines the ruggedly masculine Sheaffer Targa in matte black. One of the last great fountain pens Sheaffer intended for mass consumption, it fills using a cartridge or converter. Are the 1980s really entering vintage pen territory? Kids today think dinosaurs roamed then, so I guess that is my smell test for defining vintage. It's brass barrel and cap construction makes for a very durable pen. The classic inlay 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine-medium line. We gave it a sonic cleaning to make sure it was degunked. The cap still clicks tightly to the barrel. There are little nicks and scratches in the finish, but no brass is exposed or worn through. Only a tiny dimple is dented into the cap about a 1/4th of the way down from the top of the clip and just to the left. 13.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0822 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0822: Parker: 45
One of the last mass-produced pens for the writing public, the Parker 45 is an amiable work horse of very modern design. This vintage pen has been cleaned with a sonic cleaner and appears ready to write. It has a golden alloy medium nib. It comes with an original empty cartridge, but we think these pens will use modern Parker ink cartridges or converters. The cap and barrel are in pretty good shape, with only minimum wear. The section/hood is heavily marked by the inner parts of the cap. 13.6cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0823 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 0823: Parker: 51
Enjoy a late model Parker 51 Special, for a good knock-around pen. This pen is likely from the 1960s, as it has a black jewel on the top of the stainless steel cap. The vintage pen is an aerometric filler, with its original ink sac. The nib writes a fine-medium line. The name John Kohlmoos is engraved on the barrel. You can see lots of small scratches on the cap from daily use. A blemish in the hood is obvious in the photo. The pen's color is a tad greener in real life. The barrel and hood have lots of surface wear from use. Unrestored, but still working. 13.1cm capped.

There is some wear on the pen, including a little dab of red paint on the tail end of the barrel. The cap also has an apparently stable hairline crack between the lip and the cap band. The Sheaffer imprint is nice and clear. Wide bodied and 14.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0893: Waterman: 100 Year Pen
Advertised to last for a century, Waterman's Hundred Year Pens rarely made it half that time. Luckily, this rare black beauty is still with us in pristine condition. Notice the barrel band and no cap band! It is a handsome twist on traditional design. The imprint is strong on the cap, and there are no cracks, chips or deep scratches. There is light surface wear and an inscription of D.L. Durst on the barrel. The pen has been fully restored with a new ink sack. There is no brassing. The clip has no branding, but the clip button on top is "Ideal" in a globe. The original 14k gold Hundred Year nib writes a smooth fine line. 13cm capped.

Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 0892: Waterman: 100 Year Pen
A Waterman's Hundred Year Pen is a must for any serious pen collector. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. It has a strong imprint and a good clip that's on tight without and cracks at the top or bottom of the cap. In fact, there are no cracks on this pen. There are some deeper scratches and wear, which can be seen in the main photo when you look through the pen's still glossy black finish. The cap band has some deep scratches that seem to mostly circumnavigate the band. This is a nice wide-bodied pen that is easier to grip, especially for people with arthritis. The huge 14k gold nib is original and writes smooth fine line. 13.4cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0890 Waterman #3??
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 0890: Waterman: #3??
This looks a little bigger than a Waterman #3 we recently sold. We haven't found its exact match in a book yet, but the beast must be fed a new vintage pen. Whatever, this Waterman is, it is certainly elegant with its gleaming black cap and barrel decorated with modest gold trim. It was a user, but lightly used. No cracks, chips or deep scratches...just some light wear marks. No brassing on the clip or lever box. The top of the clip button looks a little discolored, but there are no crack where it bolts in, as many other pens of this nature have. The fountain pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The 14k gold nib writes a lovely fine line. Bold imprint. 12.8cm capped.
