Vintage Pens: 1059 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $85.00
Vintage Pens: 1059: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
If you think I'm flexi reach right out and buy me. While it isn't a wet noodle, we think folks are going to adore this rare flex nib on our Eversharp Skyline. We have fully restore this vintage fountain pen with a new ink sac and a working vintage breather tube. There is a little surface wear on the barrel of the pen and a couple small dents in the 1/10th 14k gold fill cap. It shouldn't be enough to distract you from buying this handsome old pen with such a great nib. (Click the headline font for more photos.) The pencil is seemingly new old stock complete with the original price band. However, despite no dents, there's moderate surface wear on the pencil barrel. Worse, the clicker doesn't seem to be advancing lead, even though it has plenty in reserve. Nevertheless, it still looks great. The fountain pen is the small size, measuring 12.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1058 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $65.00
Vintage Pens: 1058: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
There is no denying the handsome, distinct styling of the Eversharp Skyline. This vintage pen from the 1940s looks great, especially with that green and blue striped cap with golden trim. We have restored this one with a fresh ink sac and working old breather tube. The original 14k nib writes a somewhat stiff fine line. There are no cracks in the cap, and the top dome is on tightly. The blue barrel has some surface wear, and, unfortunately, a crack in the threads. The section can get a little loose with too much pressure as you write. There isn't much we can do about that. Our Skyline is the standard size model. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1048 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 1048: Parker: Vacumatic
The iconic Parker Vacumatic major was one of the great pens to help us get through World War II. Who knows how many "V-Mail" letters this pen might have written to or from a lonely sailor or G.I. We know for certain that this vintage pen was made in 1942. We have restored it with a new diaphragm, and it is ready for many more years of service. The original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, wet fine line with a hint of feedback. The original inkfeed has an "A" imprint. We aren't 100% certain, but we think the trim is sterling silver as opposed to nickel. There is some wear on the pen, and the tail end feels a little "pregnant" with a bulge where the filler threads in. Nothing serious, but we should point it out. No cracks and some visibility through the barrel. The imprint is still strong enough to read but not as crisp as it was out of the factory. The clip is tight; the tail cap isn't 100% flush but not off by much. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1046 Sheaffer Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1046: Sheaffer: Balance
There's nothing like an oversized Sheaffer Balance Lifetime to get you through a day of writing. And there's nothing quite so appealing as this classic Golden Brown color pattern. Wide-bodied and light weight, this pen is easy to grip and a joy with which to scribble. Our Sheaffer comes with a fresh ink sac. The original inkfeed and 14k two-tone gold nib write a fine line. Critics who think Sheaffer nibs are too "stiff" won't be won over, but people who love Sheaffer nibs of the '30s will appreciate it. Nothing is perfect, and there are a few cosmetic issues. There is some surface wear, but the fantastic Golden Brown finish shines through. You can see significant brassing on the cap band. There looks like a single bite mark near the white dot and a deep scratch up at the top of the cap. Nearly impossible to see is a 1-inch crack in the lip of the cap. It follows the seam between a brown and black line under the cap band. Still, it remains a great writing pen. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1055 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 1055: Sheaffer: Imperial
At first glance this is a new old stock Sheaffer Imperial. It still has its white "chalk" mark reading "Gold Imperial Med." This signifies its cap, which is not actually stamped gold or gold fill and the medium width of the nice. This is an early generation Imperial, and we aren't sure if it is a steel or palladium nib. You will see in the close up (after clicking the headline font) that the nib isn't marked for its metal. You'll also note that it looks as if the nib has been super glued on at some point in time. It writes very well, so clearly the glue isn't affecting the performance. The pen has a fresh ink sac, and we replaced the O-ring. There are no dents or noteworthy scratches in the cap. The barrel is in great shape and a warm burgundy color. A great user and a good display pen if you keep the nib capped. 13.4cm capped

Vintage Pens: 0839 Parker Classic
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0839: Parker: Classic
If you must have a few ballpoint pens in your collection, the Parker Classic set in sterling silver is the way to go. Using the same design as the Parker 75, the sterling silver pen is a clicker. It has no dents, dings or wear, other than a few minor scuffs on the golden click button on the tail. It comes with a working refill. The pencil is in similar condition with a working twist mechanism. The lead freely advances and retracts. The arrow clips are tightly affixed to each writing instrument. The only other difference between them is that the nose cone is silver on the pen and golden on the pencil. Pen measures 13.3cm.

Vintage Pens: 0786 Esterbrook LJ-Fine
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0786: Esterbrook: LJ-Fine
The classic fountain pen in more ways than one, Esterbrook pens were once the heartbeat of many writers in America. Our fully restored black LJ-model Esterbrook has a new ink sac an is ready to write. It has a newer steel "Fine" nib. Toward the end of the Esterbrook era, they stopped making myriad numbered nibs of various sizes and just reduced their replacement nibs to even more basic extra fine, fine, medium an broad. They might have had one or two more specialty nibs, but no where near as many as in earlier times. This one writes a decently smooth fine line that some customers might think comes closer to a medium line. There is a lot of surface wear on the cap and barrel, but there are no cracks. The imprint is still strong. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0837 Esterbrook J-1551
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0837: Esterbrook: J-1551
Esterbrook was the most popular pen for students and stenographers in the 1950s. It's simple lever-filling design was attractive in bright colors such as this candy-apple red. The interchangeable nibs were a key selling point, and this one comes with a steel 1551 nib, which was originally considered a "student" nib. It writes a medium line with a hint of scratch as most steel nibs of this era do. We replaced the ink sac, and it is ready to write. There is light surface wear on the pen, but there are no cracks or deep scratches. A little dent appears near the right of the pocket clip that is on securely. 12.7cm capped.
