Vintage Pens: 0655 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $339.99  Was: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 0655: Conklin: Endura
Is it cream or pearl? Either way, it looks great with the black, in spite of a little discoloration. Our vintage Conklin Endura fountain pen still has clean yellow accent trim lines on it. The pen has been fully restored, and it has the original 14k gold nib. Click the headline font to see it. We don't know Conklin inkfeeds as well, but we think this pen has a senior Sheaffer Lifetime inkfeed. The nib writes a nice medium line. Nobody is perfect and there is some wear on each writing instrument. No cracks but a couple nicks and scratches, as well as some brassing on the pocket clips and cap bands. The pencil is in good working order, though unrestored. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0653 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99  Was: $245.00
Vintage Pens: 0653: Conklin: Endura
The black pen is one of life's quint essentials. Everybody has one, but some are way cooler than others. Take the Conkin Endura for example. Full sized and trimmed with gold plated accents along with striking orange lines, it is a distinguished pen that winks with a rebel smile. Fully restored with a 14k gold nib, it writes a good fine line. It has its original inkfeed. The barrel and cap have seen some action and aren't quite as immaculate as the light's reflection on the photo might make it look. In addition to daily wear, the threads of the barrel have a 1.1cm crack that is visible if you look at the photo closely. The clip, cap band and lever have various degrees of brassing. Two tiny cracks sprout from the corners of the crescent of the nib's breather hole. (We didn't even notice them until taking the close-up photo visible when you click the blue headline.) 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0406 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $329.99  Was: $375.00
Vintage Pens: 0406: Parker: Vacumatic
Behold the mighty oversized Parker Vacumatic. This lovely behemoth features the highly desired self double jewels and section. It was an autograph model with the name "Leon Thorkas" engraved in script on the cap band facing the camera. The imprint also has what looks like what coin collectors call a double-die error. A double strike of the imprint. The double imprint is strong and seems to read "28" for the date code. The aluminum filler has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. The barrel is fairly clear, as you can see through it in the photo. The inkfeed and 14k nib are original. The nib writes a fine line. There is a little surface wear on the cap and barrel but no cracks or noteworthy scratches. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0644 Waterman 100 Year Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $159.99  Was: $179.99
Vintage Pens: 0644: Waterman: 100 Year Pen
Intact oversized Waterman 100 Year Pens are hard to find. This all black vintage pen is a great daily writer that has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It's 14k gold nib writes a nice medium line with some flex. The pocket clip is secure and in great shape, as is the lever box. The cap imprint is strong. No cracks in the cap or barrel. In addition to the standard wear and tear of daily use, this pen has a few significant issues. The original cap wring was replaced by a past restorer with a steel one that is a little loose. The barrel has two chips dug out of it and painted over in black. And, the original nib seems to have been substantially scratched up on the top. Click the blue headline font to see larger images of the pen and nib. Despite the surface scratching on the nib, the nib writes very well. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0854 Moore Midget
Filling Mechanism: _Other
Era: 1910-1919
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 0854: Moore: Midget
Moore's Midget is a rare vintage pen. A hard-rubber pen from the late 19teens or 1920s, it might be considered a twist filler. It has a telescoping body that retracts the nib! Just like a modern Mont Blanc Boheme. There are no cracks on this pen's barrel (2 tiny ones in the lip of the cap). It is UNrestored. We don't know how to fix it, and it is so frail and old, we don't dare monkey with it. The checker board chasing is sharp. The imprints are clear to read. The perfect gold cap band covers part of the cap imprint that start's "Moore's Qui.../ Pat..." On the barrel, the imprint has 3 lines, "Moore's / Midget / Pat. Sept. 8, 1896." Click the headline for a larger image, and you can see 350 imprinted on the tail. Turn the tail and you will see a 400 and an 03. The gold band on the barrel is perfect. The original inkfeed is seemingly perfect. The 14k gold nib has flex and a scratch on the bottom side in the photo. 9.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0657 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99  Was: $65.00
Vintage Pens: 0657: Conklin: Endura
We put some serious light on this beautiful Conklin Endura pencil to showcase the remarkable patterning in the lapis blue finish. Under most normal light conditions the pencil might look darker, but the patterns are clearly visible. Unrestored, this pencil still appears to work, as the lead-capture thingy (That's a technical term. Hey, remember we're not twists easily in and out. No brassing, excellent condition...but there are teeth marks on the tail eraser cover. A little orange paint remains in the grooves of the accent rings. 12.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0630 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $129.99
Vintage Pens: 0630: Parker: Duofold
This fountain pen writes way faster than a standard Parker Duofold. Why? It is streamlined! You can't go wrong with the art deco era's most aerodynamic pen, the Parker Duofold Junior. Fully restored, this classic jade pen has a fresh ink sac and has a high-gloss shine. The original parts include the 14k gold nib that writes a wet medium line with a bit of a whistle and a "Christmas tree" or "spear" inkfeed. The pen barrel has discolored some with age, but the cap still has a lot of its lustrous green. There is a little brassing on the clip ball but not on the cap rings. There are no cracks or chips, but the streamlined cap topper has a narrow dent just to the left of the clip, which you can see in the close up photo. (Click the blue headline font for better look.) A great pen for writing and display, for those who don't mind the discoloration. 11.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0853 Sheaffer Lifetime Junior
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 0853: Sheaffer: Lifetime Junior
It is extremely difficult to find a pearl and black 1920s Sheaffer Lifetime that still has its original color in tact. Our Sheaffer Lifetime Junior has a cap that is 90 to 95% perfect for its original coloring, with only a hint of discoloration around the ball of the clip. The pen is actually more pearly than the photo shows. It does have some discoloration but not like most pens we have seen. To arrest the discoloration, we installed a 100% pure silicon sac while restoring the pen. The nib, and likely the feed, is not original, as it is a two-tone Balance Lifetime nib. Regardless, it writes a beautiful smooth broad line. There is a tiny crack in the lip of the cap, but otherwise the pen is in pristine condition. The ball of the clip has a little brassing. The famous Sheaffer white dot is on the flat top of the cap. Strong imprint. Remarkable vintage pen. 11.5cm capped.
