Vintage Pens: 0903 Diamond Medal Oversized Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $65.00
Vintage Pens: 0903: Diamond Medal: Oversized Fountain Pen
PARTS. Click the headline font to see a closer look at the nib on this beautiful oversized Diamond Medal fountain pen. There is a lot of corrosion on the 14k gold nib. Worse, there is a crack that runs from the section to the 8 imprint. It actually looks bigger in real life. The rest of the pen is in great condition! Light to moderate surface wear and discoloration. No cracks. No strong imprint. No brassing on the lever or cap bands. The only brassing is on the ball of the pocket clip. The top of the cap is also drilled out for a tassie ring, which is odd, but it looks factory performed. 13.6cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0970 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 0970: Parker: Duofold
Few pens are as iconic as the oversized senior Parker Duofold. This vintage pen was either made in the very late 1920s or very early 1930s. We have fully restored the button-filler with a new ink sac. It's cap has remarkable color, although the barrel is discolored. There is no brassing on the pocket clip or cap rings. There are no cracks or deep scratches, just light wear on the cap and barrel. The blind cap has a chip missing, which you can see in the photo. Click the headline font to see a bigger version. The nib and feed are replacements from the Vacumatic Maxima. The 14k gold nib writes a fine line. There is a little chocolate hazing on the top of the cap. 13.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0904 National Pen Co. The Lincoln Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $65.00
Vintage Pens: 0904: National Pen Co.: The Lincoln Pen
PARTS! Sorta. On offer is a rare National Pen Company "The Lincoln Pen." This vintage pen was a Chicago-made pen of the 1920s. We restored this 6 or 7 years ago, and it is still working. However, there is a big crack in the barrel. Click the headline font to see the enlarged version of the photos. It is about an inch long, arching out of the barrel threads. We don't know how much pressure it can take without growing or ruining the pen. Yet, there are no cracks in the cap, which has a mint pocket clip and brassing on the cap ring. The green is discoloring and transparent in some part. The original inkfeed is warped but working well. The 14k gold nib is a "Warranted" 4. IT writes a medium line with a hint of scratch that can be easily smoothed out. Oversized and sold as is for parts or even use, if you feel bold enough. 13.6cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0956 J. M. Paillard Semper
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 0956: J. M. Paillard: Semper
Bonjour! Direct from Paris around the late 1940s (we're guessing. Maybe late '30s.) is this vintage fountain pen by J.M. Paillard. It might be the J.M. Paillard Semper. Today the J.M. Paillard company seems to be best known for creating art supplies, but in the 1920s and into the '40s, they made a well-known line of inks and fountain pens. The only Sempers we found during a cursory search were hard rubber pens in the 1920s. However, this black and amber mottled pen has a 14k gold "Semper" nib, size 4. It writes a fine line with a little flex that takes it up to a thick medium. We replaced the ink sac. There are no cracks, but the plastic/celluloid seems to be turning transparent in places. The cap has a swirling crease that isn't a scratch or a crack. It seems like a seam running under the clip at an angle. There is some light wear, but the imprint is strong. Brassing on the top and bottom cap bands. 13.3cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0967 Sheaffer Oversized Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $139.99
Vintage Pens: 0967: Sheaffer: Oversized Balance
Every vintage pen collection needs a big, fat, oversized Sheaffer Lifetime Balance. It might not be possible to call yourself a pen collector unless you have at least one...possibly several. Our vintage Sheaffer is in remarkable condition. It has light wear, but the black luster still shines through. Its imprint is strong. The ink sac has been replaced. The ink feed and smooth writing fine 14k gold nib are originals. There are no cracks. There is no brassing on pocket clip, cap band or lever. A real treat. Click the headline font for a better look. 14cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0965 Sheaffer Gold Fill Pen Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 0965: Sheaffer: Gold Fill Pen Set
New Old Stock from the 1920s is pretty rare, but this gold-filled Sheaffer pen and pencil set is in museum quality mint condition in its original box! We replaced the ink sac, and the original 14k gold nib writes and exquisitely smooth extra fine line. The pencil is in perfect working order, too, as it extends ANDS retracts the lead as it did the day it was made. The box is in good condition, as well. It has a little wear inside and out, but is in an overall superior quality for being nearly 100 years old. The vintage lady's pen measures 8.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0966 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 0966: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Sometimes all that glitters is gold. At least when it comes to this vintage Eversharp Skyline. Its cap is 1/10th 14k gold and in excellent condition. There are only light nicks and scratches. No dents, cracks or other major blemishes. There is no brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib and original ink feed work to lay down a fantastically smooth, wet medium line. It is one of the best nibs we've found in 2015 so far. We gave the pen a new ink sac and breather tube. The grey section is a little discolored and there is much more surface wear on the barrel compared to the cap. The lever has a big spot where the plate has come off, which you can see better when you click the headline. Rare color combination. 13.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0964 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 0964: Sheaffer: Balance
Time to start coveting. This vintage Sheaffer Balance set made with abalone flakes is in gorgeous condition. The strong Sheaffer imprint on the barrel of the pen floats in the clear enamel above the abalone flakes and ebony black finish. There is only the lightest of wear on the pen cap and barrel. No cracks, no chips, no dings. The slimmest edge of the lever filler has brassing, the clip and cap band are perfect. We have replaced the ink sac, and the pen is ready to use. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a remarkably smooth wet medium line. Luscious. The pencil is beautiful but show a little more wear. It's biggest flaw is that there is a slim degree of separation between the barrel and tail cap. The lead advances well, but it doesn't retract. Click the headline font for better close up photos. The pen is closer to the junior size and measures 12cm capped.
