Vintage Pens: 0034 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 0034: Parker: Duofold
We think this is quite possibly one of the prototypes for the Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen made c. 1925 or '26. We cannot guarantee it, but the aluminum swivel holder is the main clue, as Parker never mass produced it. It is not marked, and it was most likely custom machined. The hard rubber version of it went into production in 1926. The hard-rubber Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen is in great condition. The imprint is practically perfect, except for fading out on the very far right side. The ink feed is a "Christmas Tree." The 14k nib writes a fine-medium line. The tail is in perfect condition, and there is no brassing on its gold ring. The gold button shows no brassing. The pen base has no chips or cracks that we can see. The felt on the bottom was replaced. The pen holder is a chocolatey brown but in good working order. The spring underneath it still pushes back. This pen has been fully restored and works wonderfully. The pen measures 19cm, and the base measures 15cm X 9cm X 2cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2709 Namiki Pilot Custom Kaeda
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2709: Namiki Pilot: Custom Kaeda
We aren't 100% sure, but we think this is a Namiki Custom Kaeda pen. It definitely says "Namiki" on the clip. The cap band reads: "Maple Art Craft." As such, we believe this is made of maple wood. (Are we clever or what?) The tail cap clicks to advance and retract the Pilot ballpoint refill. The refill writes with blue ink on a quick scribble, but we have no idea how much ink remains. The pen appears to be in nearly perfect condition. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3085 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 3085: Parker: 51
So revolutionary, it was considered 10 years ahead of its time when it was released in 1941...hence it was called the Parker 51. Using Vacumatic technology and a hooded nib, this pen held more ink than just about any pen in its day, and it was far less likely to dry out. Our Parker 51 is from the mid- to late '40s. We restored its Vacumatic filler with a new diaphragm. The blue diamond on its clip meant that it had a warranty for the lifetime of its original owner. Its gold-filled cap has a couple shallow dimples and is in good overall condition. The dove grey pen shows more wear, including some obvious scratches and scars on the nib hood or cowling. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. 13.6cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2708 Namiki Pilot Custom Kaeda
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2708: Namiki Pilot: Custom Kaeda
We aren't 100% sure, but we think this is a Namiki Custom Kaeda pen. It definitely says "Namiki" on the clip. The cap band reads: "Maple Art Craft." As such, we believe this is made of maple wood. (Are we clever or what?) The tail cap clicks to advance and retract the Pilot ballpoint refill. The refill writes with black ink on a quick scribble, but we have no idea how much ink remains. The pen appears to be in nearly perfect condition. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3089 Sheaffer Sentinel TM
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $79.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3089: Sheaffer: Sentinel TM
Sheaffer released a brilliant filling system in 1948 with its TouchDown pneumatic line of pens. Our Sheaffer Sentinel TM was made between 1949 and 1952. It is one of the Thin Model line or TM. We have restored this barely used vintage pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. The viewing window is still very clean and clear. The cap and barrel only feature light wear at worst. The two-tone 14k gold conical Triumph nib writes a smooth fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3088 Wahl-Eversharp Symphony
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 3088: Wahl-Eversharp: Symphony
Eversharp's fortunes declined quickly as ballpoints came into the market in the 1940s. This 1950s Eversharp Symphony is a good fountain pen, but it was more cheaply made, as you can see in the golden alloy cap. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. It still has its original full-length breather tube. The original 14k gold nib writes a nice, smooth fine line. A great daily user for the person who wants a vintage pen for work and travel. The pen already has wear, and you won't be wrecking a museum quality pen. 13.9cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2704 Parker Duofold International Jade
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2704: Parker: Duofold International Jade
Another rare modern Parker Duofold International fountain pen graces our preowned luxury pens pages. This is the early jade green that almost mimics the discoloration of the earliest jade Duofolds in the 1920s. Unlike those, this has layers in the green with white and black flecks and a subtle glitter spread through the entire cap and barrel. Near mint condition with the exception of two really thin lines of wear on the backs of the cap bands where/when the pen rested on its side. Complete with a Parker converter. The two-tone 18k gold nib is marked medium and writes closer to a smooth, wet fine. The word Duofold is in a banner on the top cap button and on the nib. 13.1cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2703 Parker Duofold International
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $299.99
SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 2703: Parker: Duofold International
Jasper Red is one of the rarest colors you can find in a modern Parker Duofold. This slightly smaller International size Parker Duofold is in nearly mint condition. There's hardly a trace of wear, and you can get lost in the red patterns of the cap and barrel. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth broad line...and is marked broad. Our preowned luxury pen comes with a Parker converter. The pen also takes Parker fountain pen ink cartridges. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. This is an earlier edition of the modern Duofold, with "Duofold" written in a banner on the top cap button and on the nib. 13cm capped.
