Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0710: Parker: Parkette Zephyr
What is rarer, a blue pen by Parker or a lever filler by Parker? Eh, does it matter? You get both in one beautiful vintage pen. The Parkette Zephyr was a second tier pen made by Parker in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The blue seems to rise like a flame imprisoned in celluloid. There is light surface wear, but you don't notice it much through the color. No cracks or deep scratches or dings. Plating on the lever and cap band are nearly perfect, but the clip is missing most of its plate. The filling system has been fully restored. The feed and 14k nib are original and write a smooth fine line. Junior sized. 12.7cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0716 Parker Vector
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 0716: Parker: Vector
The design stylings of the 1970s are often under represented in the vintage pen world, but this Parker Vector is a nice addition to your rotation of daily users. It definitely has wear, but it makes up for it with a smooth writing fine-point nib. There are plenty of scuffs and scratches but no cracks or chips. The pen fills with a modern replacement syringe filler. Made in the U.K. 13.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0715 Sears Roebuck 603F
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $25.00
Vintage Pens: 0715: Sears Roebuck: 603F
Given the juggernaut of commerce that was Sears in the 1960s, it should come as no surprise that it had its own line of fountain pens. However, it was a pleasant surprise to us, as we had never previously seen one. We suspect this vintage pen was manufactured by Sheaffer, as it comes with an empty Sheaffer cartridge. There is a little staining on the pen as well as light surface wear on the barrel and cap. All in all, it is in very good condition. The steel nib is partially inset and writes a fine line. It is marked 603F U.S.A. Click the blue headline font to see it. 12.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0292: Esterbrook: LJ-1551
Own a piece of history with this longer-version of the slender Esterbrook LJ model. It was, as you can see in the main photo, part of Bell System. It is still in really good shape. The vintage pen only has light wear, no deep scratches, cracks, chips or other significant blemishes. The pen has been restored and has a good ink sac. The imprint is strong. The only real problem is a clip that is secure but has a little play. The steel 1551 nib writes a very smooth fine line. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0682: Parker: 75
Parker still uses this sterling silver design on its pens, but this Parker 75 set is where it got its start. Comprised of a fountain pen, ballpoint and pencil, these vintage writing instruments are a married set. There are no dents, dings or scratches on the sterling silver caps or barrels. The arrow clips are secure and in good condition. The golden colored "clickers" show light wear. The .9mm pencil lead advances with a twist. The Parker ballpoint is a click. The Parker 75 fountain pen has a beautiful 14k nib, which you can see better when you click the blue headline font. If we remember correctly, the nib is adjustable with the section color. The section threads into the barrel are plastic, not metal. The original converter is lost and has been replaced by a modern plastic syringe-style converter. The cap and tail treatments are golden, with 4 rings. At the center of the "dish" is silver with the gold outer ring. Capped the fountain pen is 12.8cm.
