Vintage Pens: 0800: National Pen Co.: The Lincoln Pen
Step up and witness a very rare blue vintage pen. The National Pen Company made The Lincoln Pen in this blue color pattern in the 1920s. The color is perfect except for the inch or so where the cap covers the barrel near the threads. Even that is only a little darker than the rest. The pen looks as if it has been imported via a time machine. Even the inner cap lacks much ink staining. There is no brassing on the clip, lever or cap band. The pen is fully restored with a 100% pure silicon ink sac that won't damage the pen or discolor. The inkfeed and size 8 14k gold nib appear to be original. The nib writes with almost wet-noodle flexibility. It takes a little getting used to. Click the headline to see it! The barrel imprint is strong. As nothing is perfect, there is lots of light surface wear visible on the plastic when you look closely. However, it isn't very noticeable at arm's lenghth. Great for display or use. 13.7cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0844 Faber Castell 5564 F
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 0844: Faber Castell: 5564 F
We are fairly sure this vintage Faber Castell pen is from the '70s. It is a sleek black piston filler, unrestored but in good working order. It writes beautifully with a gold fine nib marked "Faber / 3 / Castell / 14k". The cap's dome has a logo of a white diamond whose 4 points touch a white ring that encircles it. There is a clear golden imprint near the tail's twist-activated piston filler that reads: 5564 F. We think that signifies the model number and nib. We have two more pens that look exactly the same with the same model number but different letter designations that match the nib. The cap has a golden Faber Castell imprint. The pen and cap have obvious wear, but less than the B1 model. The cap ring has heavy brassing, but the imprints are good, and the plastic is less scratched and worn than the B1. There is more pitting on the clip than on the B. No one will notice at an arm's length. 13.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0845 Faber Castell 5564 B
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 0845: Faber Castell: 5564 B
We are fairly sure this vintage Faber Castell pen is from the '70s. It is a sleek black piston filler, unrestored but in good working order. It writes beautifully with a gold broad nib marked "Faber / 3 / Castell / 14k". The cap's dome has a logo of a white diamond whose 4 points touch a white ring that encircles it. There is a clear golden imprint near the tail's twist activated piston filler that reads: 5564 B. We think that signifies the model number and nib. We have two more pens that look exactly the same with the same model number but different letter designations that match the nib. The cap has a golden Faber Castell imprint. The pen and cap have obvious wear, but less than the B1 model. The cap ring has heavy brassing, but the imprints are good, and the plastic is less scratched and worn than the B1. No one will notice at an arm's length, and perfectionists will not mind it as much as the B1...though some still might mind. 13.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0846 Faber Castell 5564 B1
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 0846: Faber Castell: 5564 B1
We are fairly sure this vintage Faber Castell pen is from the '70s. It is a sleek black piston filler, unrestored but in good working order. It writes beautifully with a gold broad stub nib marked "Faber / 3 / Castell / 14k". The cap's dome has a logo of a white diamond whose 4 points touch a white ring that encircles it. There is a weak but clear imprint near the tail's twist activated piston filler that reads: 5564 B1. We think that signifies the model number and nib. We have two more pens that look exactly the same with the same model number but different letter designations that match the nib. The cap has a feint Faber Castell imprint. The pen and cap have obvious wear from use including a little brassing on the cap band, some pitting and wear on the clip, and a few deeper scratches, dings and scuffs on the plastic. No one will notice at an arm's length, but perfectionists will not like it...even though it will be a great daily writer. 13.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0797 Esterbrook Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0797: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
For all of our Esterbrook fans, here's a classic Esterbrook purse pen in white. It is more of an egg shell, as it isn't the pristine white it was 60 years ago. Nevertheless, it is a nice vintage pen. There are plenty of scratches and nicks. The cap lip is fraught with cracks, but they are pretty common in this purse pens. We have restored it with a new ink sac. The nib is a rarer 1555 GREGG nib. It writes a medium line, and there is a bit of scratch on the inverse downstroke. These old steel nibs usually have a bit of scratch, which endears them to some users and drives others bonkers. The white end cap jewels are likewise rare and in very good condition. 11cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0848 Sheaffer Silver Tektor Marker
Filling Mechanism: Marker
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0848: Sheaffer: Silver Tektor Marker
There is an unfair paradox represented by this sterling silver Sheaffer marker. On the one hand it is in pristine condition without a scratch, dent or dimple in the silver cap or barrel. (The black plastic grip has some scuffs and wear.) On the other, it doesn't work, and it likely never will. Sheaffer made some exciting innovations in the 1960s, as it fought to remain relevant against disposable pens. One such innovation was several lines of markers using the Sheaffer Tektor refill. The markers were wildly popular with a very select few people, but not enough with the mainstream public to survive. The refills have long since gone out of production. We tried fitting it with a modern Sheaffer ballpoint ink refill, and the refill's tip was larger than the hole allotted. Unless you are a wiz at converting old pens to use modern refills, this will remain a beautiful curio in your collection. It does come with its original dried out refill. 13cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0835 Waterman 0552 1/2 LEC
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0835: Waterman: 0552 1/2 LEC
Vintage Waterman pen aficionados and vintage pen fans, in general, will love this very attractive gold-filled Waterman's 0552 1/2 L.E.C. The cap and barrel have a floral/botanical design that is still strong--the finer lines still unworn. There is a bit of brassing on the "clip cap" clip and on the top rim of the cap. The end caps are in fairly good condition and not pushed in, although the cap side one has a few little dings. The only serious flaw is the Waterman's size 2 nib. It has a crack in stemming from the breather hole and another crack starting at the outside right wing as you look at the nib pointing up. (Click the headline to see it.) We won't vouch for the stability of the nib, but it does write luscious medium line with some flex. There also is a little chip missing from the original inkfeed, but it shouldn't effect anything. 12.9cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0862 Inkograph Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0862: Inkograph: Pen
Here's a curio every vintage pen collector ought to own: an Inkograph pen. Thick, oversized and made from hard rubber, this classic writing instrument filled with a fountain pen-style lever filler. However, it wrote with a little tube and pin. The pin is connected to a stopper. The pin is gravity locked down in the little tube. Once you engage by putting the tube to paper, the pin is pushed up in the tube, opening the stopper. Thus, out comes the ink. Fairly ingenious for the nineteen teens and twenties. Our Inkograph has some chocolate hazing, but is in excellent overall condition. No cracks, chips or deep scratches. The imprint is strong and reads: "Trademark Reg. / Inkograph / Pat. Apl'd - Made in U.S.A." The pin is still in the tube. We gave it a brand new ink sac. 13.3cm capped.
