Vintage Pens: 0927 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 0927: Parker: Duofold
The art deco era streamlined this senior Parker Duofold to perfection. The shiny black plastic (not ebonite/hard rubber) was a new feature for the time and still looks great, even though there are light scratches from wear and a few little nicks. No cracks or odious deep scratches. There is just a touch of brassing on the ball of the otherwise perfect pocket clip. The 2 cap bands sport a little corrosion around the edges. The filling system has been fully restored. Click the headline photo, and it is obvious the nib and feed are replacements from the Vacumatic Maxima line. The 14k gold arrow nib writes delightfully smooth extra-fine/fine line. The section is of the original hard rubber material and a little chocolaty next to the shiny black barrel. And for those not as familiar with Senior sizes, this streamlined model is about a half inch shorter than the traditional "Big Red" seniors. It is, however, taller and wider than the junior models. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0926 Sheaffer PFM-V
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 0926: Sheaffer: PFM-V
The Sheaffer PFM V is one of the high-water marks in vintage pens. These wide-bodied beauties are a comfortable thrill with which to write. Click the headline font to see a close up of the 14k gold inlaid nib. It writes a decadently smooth medium line. The original snorkel filling system is unrestored by us and still in good working order. Yet, as the saying goes, nobody's perfect. There is a very large crack in the blind tail cap. It isn't featured in the photo, but a deep scratch on a different side of the tail is, if you look closely. Neither seems to effect the operation of the pen. The gold-plated cap has no dents but scratches from use and one pin-head dimple. The clip is loose. The pen still writes and works well, but it was a daily user. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0932 Esterbrook Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $64.99
Vintage Pens: 0932: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Most Esterbrook purse pens are in rough shape these days. This lavender model is exquisite. There are no cracks, dents, chips or deep scratches. It has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. The jewels are perfect, and the clip is on tight. This vintage pen's imprint is strong. It comes with a steel model 1555 GREGG nib. It was advertised as a shorthand nib, which makes sense, as these pens were extremely popular among stenographers. It writes a nice fine line for a steel nib. 11.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0868 Reform 1745
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0868: Reform: 1745
Want a trusty German-made piston filler without the Pelikan or Mont Blanc price? It is time to give the Reform 1745 fountain pen a serious look. We have 21 of these new-old-stock pens that borrow heavily from Pelikan designs. The two-tone steel nib is a medium writer that is better than an Esterbrook 1000 or 2000 line nib but not as good as the 9000 line nibs. The piston fills by twisting the tail. It even comes with its original sticker. Although these are brand new pens, we apologize many are getting a little green tarnishing on the pocket clips. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0934 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $74.99
Vintage Pens: 0934: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
We love it when we can offer a vintage pen with its original price tag! This Eversharp Skyline is tagged as a "NO. 99 - BN $3.95 FINE-MAN." We suspect that BN means brown, which is the rich, warm color of the pen. The pen is like-new, with only a few super light surface scratches on the pen and cap. The cap has a tight dome, and the pocket clip does not wrap over the top. The clip's band reads "Eversharp Skyline Made in U.S.A." Interestingly, there is no traditional cap band. The lever filler works well with a fresh ink sac and a good breather tube. The pen had likely been dipped and filled once or twice, as there was some old ink we cleaned off, but I doubt it was used much. The 14k gold nib writes a wet medium line. You can hear a scratch as it writes, but you don't really feel it much. It certainly didn't dig into the paper as it wrote. It ought to smooth out as soon as you start using it on a regular basis. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0920 Pens of Dist-INK-Tion Click-U-Matic
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 0920: Pens of Dist-INK-Tion: Click-U-Matic
Add something really unique to your pen collection with this ballpoint conversion made from a vintage Parker Vacumatic. The clever folks at Pens of Dist-INK-Tion figured out a way to combine a Parker 51 cap made of 1/10 16k gold-fill and an azure blue Vac barrel to make a smooth-operating click ballpoint pen. It uses Parker-style ballpoint refills. There are light traces of wear on these vintage parts, but it is a very handsome pen. 13.3cm.

Vintage Pens: 0919 Pens of Dist-INK-Tion Twist-U-Matic
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $174.99
Vintage Pens: 0919: Pens of Dist-INK-Tion: Twist-U-Matic
Have you thought it was a crying shame that ballpoint pens were invented too late for Parker to have released a Vacumatic version? Wipe away those tears. The clever folks at Pens of Dist-INK-Tion found a way to convert this golden pearl Vacumatic into a twist-action ballpoint pen. It is the same great width and light weight of the original pen because it was made out of all the original pen parts, except for the ballpoint pen conversion. It uses a Parker-style ballpoint refill. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0922 Pens of Dist-INK-Tion Click 51
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 0922: Pens of Dist-INK-Tion: Click 51
When Pens of Dist-INK-Tion has a few loose parts for classic pens, they go a little wild with the possibilities. In this case, they took a cocoa 51 barrel and converted it into a ballpoint click pen with a Lustraloy 51 cap. The pen uses a Parker-style ballpoint refills. There is light wear on the cap and barrel, as these are parts from 60-year-old pens. It is a really cool retro-fit pen. 12.7cm.
