Vintage Pens: 0760 Esterbrook V-Clip
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 0760: Esterbrook: V-Clip
There are two great reasons to buy this pen. 1.) It has a rarer older V-clip cap. 2.) It has a silky smooth stainless steel 9556 nib. Ultimately, we think the pen is a marriage between the ruby red V-clip cap and a slighly bluer ruby red J-model barrel. The vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The fit between the cap and barrel is perfect. The clip is on tightly. No cracks or serious blemishes ruin this beautiful pen. Its smooth medium 9000-series nib and cap alone are worth the price. 12.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0825 Waterman Taperite
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0825: Waterman: Taperite
Mr. John Kohlmoos received this Waterman Taperite as a high school graduation gift in the 1940s. He told us so when he sold it to us. We have restored its bladder, and the classic pen is now in great condition. BEST OF ALL, for extra-fine nib fanatics, this has an extra-fine nib! You can see the only real blemish on the cap band. The rest of the pen only has light surface wear from use. Obviously, there is a name engraved on the pen. The imprint is strong. Its only other drawback is that the cap isn't very snug when covering the nib. In fact, it is rather loose. It is tight enough for desk duty, but we wouldn't carry it in a shirt pocket or purse. 13.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0801 National Pen Co. The Lincoln Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 0801: National Pen Co.: The Lincoln Pen
Some pens are harder to part with than others, and this oversized Lincoln by the National Pen Company is one of them. It is a huge hard-rubber vintage pen with an incredible orange color infusion! This lever filler is fully restore with a gargantuan ink sac. The monstrous size 8 nib writes a nice wet fine-medium line. Take a good look at it when you click the headline font. The imprint is strong and reads "The Lincoln Pen / National Pen Products Co Chicago." That makes it a hometown pen for us. Its wide body also makes it easier with which to write. No cracks, No deep scratches, No chips. Skinny, skinny edges of brassing on the cap band, none on the clip, which sports a nice floral imprint. The only oddity is that half the cap is mostly black with little orange as you can see in the photo. Cherry! 13.9cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0804 Sheaffer 5-30 Combo
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 0804: Sheaffer: 5-30 Combo
There aren't many great examples of Sheaffer combo pen and pencils left out there. Overlooked for many years, these are ingenius writing instruments that delivered all that any writer could desire in the 1920s. This specific vintage pen-pencil combo is a torpedo shaped 5-30 model. The color of the cap and barrel is phenomenal and worth socking away in a collection immediately. The 5-30 model stood for the pen costing $5 when it was new and coming with a 30-year guarantee. The pen side is fully restored with a new ink sac, which we can remove if you prefer for storage. The inkfeed and 14k gold nib is original and writes a fine line. If it seems a little stiff, you'll want to put a little pressure on the tines to open them and increase flow. The pencil, alas does not appear to be working. There are no cracks, chips or significant scratches beyond light wear. NO BRASSING. Strong imprint. Beautiful! 15cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0814 Sheaffer Valiant
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 0814: Sheaffer: Valiant
We found this Sheaffer Valiant set in what appears to be its original box! We wasted no time restoring the vintage pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. It now refill with a simple depressing of the TouchDown tube filler. The factory upturned two-tone 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line. This fountain pen's imprint is strong, but the pen has obvious wear from years of loyal service. No cracks or deep scratches, just light scratches and wear on the cap and barrel. The clip and cap band have zero brassing. The pencil is not working and more worn on the plastic; it has a 1-inch cut through the plastic to the left of the clip. Heavy wear beneath the clip. The gold plated trim has no brassing. The box is worn but not torn. The satin lining has pencil and ink marks. The pen measures 13.3cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0803 Walgreen’s Vogue
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0803: Walgreen’s: Vogue
Didn't Madonna have a hit song about this pen? "Vogue." Strike a pose with this beast of a widebodied, oversized vintage pen. Retaining remarkable pearl-and-black coloring given its birth in the late 1920s or early 1930s, this Walgreen's Vogue is in remarkable condition without any cracks, chips or dents. There is no brassing on the cap rings or clip. This fountain pen has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. There are a couple little scratches here and there, along with some light surface wear, but this pen is in excellent condition. The monstrous 14k gold nib is original with its inkfeed, and it writes a very smooth fine-medium line. Click the headline font to see a close up. This handsome devil should be a difficult one to pass up. 14.3cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0449 Sheaffer 1000 ... ish
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0449: Sheaffer: 1000 ... ish
It's alive! It's alive! After installing an abby-normal brain and hitting it with lightning, this FrankenSheaffer is ready for a loving home. Vintage pen parts from a Sheaffer 1000 and Sheaffer 500 were used to construct this golden brown beauty. The barrel is from a 1000 and incredible except for a small cigarette burn on the tail and a monstrously engraved set of initials visible in the photo by the lever filler: W (backward) N and F. The cap is a lifetime cap with an over-wrapping pocket clip that is a little loose but still secure. The cap band has some brassing, but the rest of the cap is cherry. The cap fits perfectly. The two-tone Feather Touch nib (size 5) and section come from a 500. It writes a fine line. The section fits well with a little help from orange shellac. The sac is restored, but the two-piece lever spring is a little wonky. It works great, and we hope it doesn't derail one day. Hey, it's cheap and has character. How can you resist? 13cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0585 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 0585: Parker: Duofold
You'll be the bee's knees with the hottest fountain pen of the 1920s. The junior-size Parker Duofold in orange appears to be the permanite model, although it is lighter colored. Its original Lucky Curve (Christmas tree) inkfeed is still intact, inside and out. (Most are broken.) The vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The button is made of steel. Only minimal chocolate hazing effects the blind cap and cap. "Lucky Curve" has been rubbed out of the imprint, although the rest remains legible. Brassing is evident on parts of the raised cap band and the ball of the pocket clip. The cap and barrel have some wear but don't look beat-up. "M-L-R" is engraved on the barrel, and a little staining shows behind the threads. Pliers marks grace the section from an old repair. The 14k gold nib writes a fine line. It also is marked "Parker Duofold Pen B." Click the headline to see it. No cracks. A 1" rough patch on the back of the cap. 11.5cm capped.
