Vintage Pens: 0775 Majestic Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 0775: Majestic: Deluxe
Majestic's stunning candy-apple red striped fountain pen is a head turner. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this vintage pen is ready for action. The barrel and cap have some minor wear, but the coloring really distracts. There are no cracks or chips. The name Ruey G. Sherbon is engraved on the barrel. Click the blue headline font to see a dusty (we didn't even see the lint until after the photo was enlarged nearly 10 times the original size of the nib.) picture of the 14k gold nib. It writes a good medium line, with a scratchy sound but little actual scratch. The cap band and clip are in good condition, but the lever is losing its plating. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0819 Remington Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0819: Remington: Fountain Pen
Is this the same Remington as the firearms manufacturer? We are not sure, but it would not be unlikely. Many companies back in the 1920s through the 1940s made, or had made, special lines of fountain pens. This restored lever-filling pen has a new ink sac. The vintage pen also sports an Epenco steel nib with some of its plate still intact. Yes, the tip of the nib is a little messed up, but we sanded off a sweet spot where you can write a medium line with relative ease and only a few little scratches. The trick is to find that sweet spot. The cap and barrel show plenty of wear from daily use, but there are no cracks. The plate is missing from the clip, cap band and lever box. A great little curio for your collection. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0820 Parker Duofold Desk Set
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 0820: Parker: Duofold Desk Set
Your desk will be doubly impressive with this twin Parker Duofold desk set. The quartz (?) base features an intricate natural design, 2 original Duofold holders and a Parker decal. The felt base is worn but whole with no extra Parker stickers. Casual observers won't notice that the pens are not matching. Click the headline to see nib photos. The pen on the left in the nib photo is more slender, sporting a plastic taper, Vac inkfeed and a smooth medium-broad 14k gold Duofold nib. The other pen is wider with a hard-rubber taper (only slightly hazed), a Christmas tree inkfeed and smooth fine-medium 14k gold Duofold nib. Each pen is fully restored. The base has a few little chips on the edges and 2 larger (but not hideous) chips on the back right corner. Base is 6" wide X 3 3/4" long X 1/2" tall.

Vintage Pens: 0809 Wearever Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $10.00
Vintage Pens: 0809: Wearever: Fountain Pen
Not all pens need to be fancy rarities. New collectors need the opportunity to find a cheap pen to start experimenting with vintage pens. This 1950s or '60s Wearever fountain pen has a brand new ink sac. The barrel and cap have some heavy wear spots, which you can see in the photo. The inkfeed is still remarkably clear. The steel nib writes a medium line, even though it is stamped "XFINE." The cap is supposed to screw on, but the pen sticks in it very well with just a slip on. We wouldn't attempt to screw it together, as the fit is too tight...even though this is the right cap for the barrel. The cheaper plastics have just warped a bit. It is a great writer for the price. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0807 Sheaffer Saratoga
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 0807: Sheaffer: Saratoga
Recreate the joy of writing in the 1950s with this vintage pen: a Sheaffer Saratoga. The TouchDown filler is fully restored. The heart and soul of any great pen is its nib. This Sheaffer features a deliciously smooth medium-broad 14k gold two-tone nib. A rarer color, brown is a treat on this classic Sheaffer. There is moderate to heavy wear on the barrel and cap from daily use. There is no brassing on the clip but some on the back of the cap band. There also is a slightly warped ridge halfway up the cap. It doesn't effect anything. We rescued the inkfeed, which was in two pieces, and it seems to work beautifully after a full page of writing. You likely won't even see where we glued it together. However, as the very end of the feed isn't 100% flush with the nib, it might dry out more easily and require priming to start up again. A great daily user. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0812 Esterbrook SM-9668
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0812: Esterbrook: SM-9668
You might be more familiar with Esterbrook's colorful J-model pens from the 1950s, but this pen represents Esterbook's SM line. Get your mind out of the gutter: SM stood for Standard Model. Our vintage pen has a rare brown color. It also comes with an upgraded steel 9668 nib. The 9000 series was much smoother than the lower numbered counterparts. The 9668 was for "General Writing." We replaced the pen's ink sac. The neatest thing for us is that this cap is a spring-loaded cap. It snaps on and off, without needing to twist. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0818 Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $25.00
Vintage Pens: 0818: Fountain Pen
We cannot confirm it, but we think this Waltham pen was made by the same people who made the famous watches. Ours is a fully restored button filler from the 1930s. The green radiates a special glow from the art deco era. The barrel and cap show plenty of wear, but the green finish conceals much of the wear until you look up close. The golden plate is missing from the cap ring and much of the clip. You can see a chip in the finish of the cap ring in the photo. Click the blue headline font to see what remains of the gold plating left on the steel nib, which writes a fine line. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0817 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0817: Parker: 45
Parker's first major foray into the mass consumer market for cartridge and converter pens was the Parker 45 in the 1960s. This attractive pen comes with neither a cartridge nor converter, but a modern Parker piston converter will fit it just fine. The two-tone cap is in excellent condition with only a couple minor traces of wear. The barrel is similar, although it does show a bit more wear, including a scuff on the tail. The section/hood doesn't show much wear but a little warping that shouldn't effect anything. The nib writes a nice medium line. 13.6cm capped.
