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: 0859 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 0859: Parker: Duofold
It is the junior holy grail of fountain pen collecting: a mandarin yellow Parker Duofold (jr.). This vintage pen is a rare color with a really strong imprint. There are some blemishes, the worst of which are a series of pits and scratches to the right of the clip. We tried to show them in the photo, but they just won't show...even though they are readily visible to the naked eye. (Purists looking for museum quality will freak out at the tidy clusters of blemishes.) The clip is perfect with no brassing. The cap bands are free of brassing but have a tiny little dent in one of the bands. The insides have been restored and include a new ink sac. There is a little discoloration in the black tail cap and on the regular cap. Overall, this pen is in good solid shape and will look good in your collection or as a daily user. We just don't want to hide anything. The original Christmas tree inkfeed still sends ink to the original 14k gold nib. It writes a nice smooth medium line. 11.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0860 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 0860: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Cast your eyes on one of the rarer Eversharp Skyline caps. Our's features the pinstripe design in 1/10 14K gold fill. There are light scratches and little dings, but it isn't too bad. The biggest is only 1/8th inch diagonal and visible in the photo, down and to the left of the breather hole. There is a little brassing on the dome's edges, but the dome is on tight. (Click the headline font to get the close-up.) The black barrel is in excellent condition with only the lightest of surface wear. The ink sac has been replaced. The breather tube is cleared and in place. Its 14k gold nib writes a remarkably smooth extra-fine to fine line. 13.4cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0861 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 0861: Sheaffer: Lifetime
The Sheaffer Lifetime fountain pens of the 1920s are personal favorites around here. This oversized Sheaffer Lifetime has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It also has traces of it luminescent pearly past not completely discolored. The barrel is in great condition with a strong imprint. Unfortunately, the cap, while having phenomenal color, also has a series of cracks to the right of the straight clip. There is some pretty heavy brassing on the cap band and clip, too. You can see all of this if you click the headline to pull up the larger detail pictures. There are two deep scratches below the pocket clip. The heart and soul of any Sheaffer Lifetime is its huge 14k gold nib. The man who likely made this nib was a master craftsman. It is soooo smooth and flowing as it lays down a great medium line. Final analysis: A remarkable writer with a potentially unstable cap. Keep it on your desk, and it will be a joy. 13.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0863 Sheaffer Self Filling
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 0863: Sheaffer: Self Filling
Hold on to your hats Sheaffer fans. Here's an early hard-rubber self-filling fountain pen from the late teens or early 1920s. Look closely at the main image and notice that the clip and cap band are stamped 14k gold. The barrel and section are in nearly perfect condition. The imprint is strong, and we replaced the ink sac. Nobody's perfect, though, and the cap has a 3/4-inch crack from the lip up to the right side of the clip. There is a smaller crack in the lip at the back of the cap, too. Click the blue headline to see a larger image, and you can see the big crack if you look closely. The feed and 14k gold nib are original. The fine-point nib has a little flex and is stamped "Sheaffer / 2 / Self-Filling". 13.3cm capped.
