Vintage Pens: 4157: Conklin: Crescent 2P
Severe chocolate hazing and heavy wear shouldn't deter anyone from this lovely Conklin 2P that is full of goodies! First, most people will be attracted to its 14k gold semi-flex nib. You'll write whisper-thin extra-fine to about 1mm, but it might take you a little time to train the nib and for it to train you how best to use it. Of course, we've restored it with a new ink sac. Its imprints are almost invisible to the naked eye, but our favorite part about this pen is the cap imprint instructing us how to unscrew a cap!!! The only flaw you can't see in the photo is a tiny chip missing from the safety ring that holds the crescent filler in place. No cracks. 10.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: CONKPARTS1: Conklin: Nozac Parts Pens
We don't often sell parts pens, but these parts pens have been darkening our door for too long. Not one of these pens is working, and they may never work again. Yet, they are rich in Conklin Nozac and All American parts. Hopefully some will be of use to you. The two pens with nibs have complete nibs with all of their tipping. All pens are sold as is, no returns. Some of the barrels are shot. Some of the caps might have threading issues. Yet, some of the barrels have "word counters."

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4082: Conklin: Endura
Entering the world as bronze and black, our Conklin Endura ringtop has discolored to a grey-ish green. We still restored it to a glossy shine after giving it a fresh ink sac. There's only a little brassing on the cap band. Most people will get excited by its 14k gold #3 semi-flex nib! Without pressure it writes a smooth hair-line extra-fine, but you can get it a shade over 1mm with gentle pressure. No cracks, okay imprint. The only thing that concerns us is its lever pin. It might have rusted and gotten weak, but it seems to work fine in our workshop. The neat extra with this pen is that its crescent moon hallmark in the cap is a little cockeyed and not level.

Vintage Pens: 4077: Conklin: Conklin
Conklin pens were a huge name in pens at the turn of the 20th century. Famously made in Toledo, Ohio, these pens were first promoted by Mark Twain. Our Conklin 4NL is a larger model of their pen, made of black hard rubber. We restored it with a new ink sac. Its imprint is weak, but you can still tell it is a 4NL. Plus, it also has a 14k gold #4 nib. You will write an extra-fine to fine line with it, not using any pressure. However, the nib does flex with a little resistance to about 1mm wide. Its biggest flaw is quite obvious. The pocket clip is missing from the cap, where this is a gapping hole. Click the headline to see a close-up. The pen measures 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4072: Conklin: Endura
Navy blue and bronze celluloid combine for a very handsome Conklin Endura fountain pen. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for a close-up of the rarer blue in the cap and barrel. We restored it with a new ink sac. In addition to the color scheme, the pen is in markably good condition. Its original yellow accent stripes ring the pen. Minimal brassing is found on the clip and a little more is found on the bottom edge of the cap band, which is engraved "A.L.D." No cracks or deep scratches. Its original 14k gold nib writes a very nice fine line. Although it is a firm nib, technically, with careful effort, you can flex it to 1mm. This is the full-sized model not the oversized model. 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3966: Conklin: Endura Senior
Lapis lazuli looks like moonlight glinting off the ocean on this stunning blue Conklin Endura Senior. A classic from Toledo, Ohio, this vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, no brassing...only minimal wear, this pen belongs in a museum. We did not repaint the orange trim rings, and, as far as we know, it is original paint. Its original 14k gold nib writes a very firm, fine line that leans closer to extra fine. Click the headline for a great close-up photo. Its oversized zen makes for easier gripping. A phenomenal pen for use or display. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3969 Conklin #2 Gold Filled Filigree
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 3969: Conklin: #2 Gold Filled Filigree
Vintage pen fans should go gaga over our Conklin #2 in gold-filled filigree. We restored this stunner of a classic crescent-filler with a new ink sac. Yet, its exterior needed no restoration. Marked "14kt * 1/5", the gold-filled exterior is nearly perfect with a floral pattern and only the lightest of wear. No cracks or marks in the black hard rubber, either. You'll only find chocolate hazing in the spaces between the filigree. Its safety ring is whole and slides around the pen easily. If that isn't enough to get you excited, it has a flexi (but not wet noodle) nib that writes an extra-fine line to just over 1mm. Not bad for a century-old 14k gold nib. It has a little feedback. No brassing on the clip. 12.8cm capped.
