Vintage Pens: 0875 Reform 1745
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0875: 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 16 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: 0935 Sheaffer PFM-V
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $399.99  Was: $459.99
Vintage Pens: 0935: Sheaffer: PFM-V
Everybody wants 'em these days, but we're one of the only companies to have one: a Sheaffer PFM - V. This large vintage pen from the late 1950s or early 1960s was also known as the Pen for Men, but it is pretty clear women are just as capable of using them and even--gasp!--enjoying them. Its wide-bodied construction actually makes writing much easier for anybody who has hands that cramp from writing. This pen is unrestored but has a working snorkel refill. The 14k gold nib writes a beautifully smooth fine-medium line. The barrel of the pen is covered in light and moderate wear marks and scratches. There are no cracks. The cap is in good condition with no dents, deep scratches or brassing...just some wear from being carried around all of the time. The clip of this and the pencil are engraved with "M F F." The pencil is in good working order and has less wear. The set comes in its original box with its original papers! Pen measures 13.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0928 Morton Oversized Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $109.99  Was: $129.99
Vintage Pens: 0928: Morton: Oversized Fountain Pen
Let your pen collection radiate with the fresh spring greens of this oversized Morton fountain pen. Untarnished early plastics from the 1920s or 1930s remain vibrant on this fully restored lever filler. As the gold plating wore off the lever, we have left the pocket clip in a more tarnished condition. There are no cracks or deep scratches in the pen or cap. There is light surface wear. Plus, there seems to be a permanent finger print just above the pocket clip. It is invisible until you hold it under the proper light. The original nib has been replaced by a Warranted Iridium nib. You can see it better when you click the headline font. The nib writes a nice medium line. Nice, light-weight pen with a wide grip, which makes it ideal for people whose hands tend to crap while writing. 13.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1189 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1189: Parker: Duofold
Behold the large lapis blue Parker Duofold pencil. We shined extra light on its blue finish to accentuate the white flecks. However, the blue looks a little darker in real life. This vintage pencil is in good working order. The lead is a new lead that was still in the reservoir. We installed it, and this is as far in as it goes. The lead advances and retreats smoothly. It is in perfect working order, as far as we know. (We aren't pencil repair people.) There is brassing on the ball of the clip, and there are four blemishes in the nose cone of the pencil that we couldn't polish out. They aren't huge, but they are noticeable. The tail crown has two little flat spots on the edge of the crown but nothing major. The barrel has wear from use, but there are no deep scratches or cracks. 13.5cm.


Vintage Pens: 0087 Mabie Todd (Swan) Golden Swan
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $99.99  Was: $124.99
Vintage Pens: 0087: Mabie Todd (Swan): Golden Swan
It is difficult to find gold-fill vintage pens as in good a finish as this Mabie Todd. There are a couple light scratches on the cap and one tiny dimple near the tail, but that's it, unless you're the type who disapproves of the "N.J.P." engraved on the barrel. Stamped just below the section on the barrel is " 'Swan Pen' Mabie Todd & Co New York / Made in U.S.A. / 14K Gold Filled". The nib photo is grossly magnified, making the gap in the tines look humongous. (Click the headline font to see it.) The gold nib writes a beautiful broad line. Original inkfeed. Resacced and ready to write. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1164 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 1164: Parker: 45
Parker 45 fountain pens are excellent for daily use or for getting an aspiring young pen collector started. This vintage pen comes in teal blue with a stainless steel cap. There is a little wear on the section hood of the pen and a couple little marks on the cap and barrel, but overall the pen is in very good condition. The nib has some corrosion or something on its top surface in the photo, but it writes a very smooth medium line. The pen comes with its original converter, but we won't vouch for it in daily use. The good news is that this pen also can use a modern Parker converter or cartridge! The box is pretty dog-eared with all 4 corners blown, but at least it still exists. 13.6cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1192 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1192: Parker: 51
You can't get much more new old stock than with this Parker 51 set. Both the vintage fountain pen and the pencil are teal blue with "electro polished" caps. This must have been the year they introduced Liquid Lead pencils, as you can see by the box paperwork. The pen and pencil appear to be in mint condition, still in their original cellophane wrappers. Each also has its original stickers. The pen has a 14k gold nib that writes a medium line. The liquid lead pencil still has life in the refill! Maybe not a lot but some. The only hiccup is that someone in the 1950s must have filled the pen up once and let it dry out full. We have flushed the pen. The original silicone ink sac is fine but stained. It even comes with what remains of its outer box! Vintage pens don't come more museum ready! 13.7cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0090 Mabie Todd (Swan) SM200/60
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $149.99  Was: $199.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0090: Mabie Todd (Swan): SM200/60
Set your gaze upon a rare vintage Mabie Todd SM200/60 that is in absolute mint condition and looking factory fresh. The chasing is perfectly unworn. The lever filler is made of the same plastic/celluloid material the rest of the pen and 100% intact. The only significant blemish is a little brassing on the clip ball. This pen has been fully restored and is ready to write, for those bold enough to want to make it a daily user. The imprints are strong and include: a swan image on top of the cap, "Swan" M2 on the section, the tail reads SM 200/60, and the center of the barrel reads Swan self-filler / Mabie Todd & Co. LTD / Made in England. There also is an image of a swan with "Trade Mark" written below it. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line and has some flex! Click headline for a closeup. 12.5cm capped.
