Vintage Pens: 6026 Sheaffer Imperial II
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 6026: Sheaffer: Imperial II
Sheaffer Imperial pens were the last of the company's golden era pens meant for daily use. Our Sheaffer Imperial II appears to be new old stock with its original pricing "chalk" marks on the barrel. We restored it with a fresh ink sac and O-ring, but we did not write with it. When we tested it to see if it filled with water, no old ink appeared on the nib or feed. The vintage pen is marked as an extra-fine nib. Click the headline for close-ups. We aren't sure if it is a steel nib or "palladium silver." There are no cracks. While we are fairly sure it is NOS, it also has some shop wear from where ever it rattled around for the past 50+ years. 13.5cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F

Vintage Pens: 6124: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
Trying hard to stay afloat during the Great Depression, the Parker company wisely diversified its offerings to more affordable options for the cash-strapped public. Enter the Parkette Deluxe. It sported a handsome art deco design and a two-tone 14k gold nib with a cheaper material used for the cap, barrel and lever filler. Nevertheless, it writes like a Parker! We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. It has some wear and a lot of brassing. No cracks. You will write a nice, wet fine line. It is smooth when you find the sweet spot on the nib.

Vintage Pens: 6123 Parker 75-Premier
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: Stub
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 6123: Parker: 75-Premier
Some fountain pen marriages are a very happy and blessed event. This Parker 75 cap and barrel have an earlier Parker Premier section and nib. This 1970s/early '80s variant of the Premier was to replace the 75 and only really barely updated the design. What we find especially remarkable about this barely vintage pen is its factory stub nib! We like the way it writes with good line variation. It comes with a modern Parker converter. You also can use Parker cartridges. The silver cap and barrel are free of dents. Made in France. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6122 Esterbrook Dollar Pen 2314-B
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 6122: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen 2314-B
Esterbrook Dollar Pens were a fixture of the 1940s. Very affordable and easily customized with screw-in nib assemblies. This is one of the company's harder-to-find specialty nibs: the 2314-B Relief nib. It is a left-foot oblique nib made of steel. We find it writes very smoothly with some nice--but not dramatic--line variation. Nevertheless, the smoothness makes it fun to write with all day. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks or deep scratches mar this pen, but it does have a little wear from use. You will see this is one of the shorter versions of the Dollar Pen. Click the headline for close-ups. 11cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6107 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 6107: Parker: 51
Its imprint is faded, but we think we spy a 1951 date code on this Parker 51 fountain pen. There's a burgundy barrel with a gold filled cap. The cap looks pretty darned good, but you can see some big scars on the pen's hood. Click the headline for close-ups. Happily enough, the aerometric filler is still working great with its original pli-glass sac. You will write a nice smooth medium line with its 14k gold nib. There's a pearl-grey "jewel" on top of the cap. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6106 Parker 51 Special
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 6106: Parker: 51 Special
Parker 51 Specials were the pen of the every day person. They were everything that a standard 51 was, but they had a more affordable steel nib. Octanium, we believe is the correct word they used...but still basically steel. Our vintage pen is in great condition. Its lustraloy cap is dent-free, and there is minimal wear on the hood and barrel of the pen. Its original aerometric filler is still in good shape. We flushed some stubborn blue out of it, but there might still be a trace. We love the way it writes a nice medium line. It is firm with a bit of genuine feedback, but we don't find it to be scratchy. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5297 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 5297: Parker: 45
Many might consider the Parker 45 as the last Parker fountain pen for the everyday person of the golden age of fountain pens. Ours writes beautifully, but it has some surface wear on its blue pen barrel and hood. The golden cap has some wear, too, but no dents. It doesn't have its original filler, but these still take modern Parker cartridges and some Parker converters. We believe this pen has a 14k gold nib. You will write a nice, smooth fine line with it. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6079 Conway Stewart 286
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 6079: Conway Stewart: 286
Coming from across the puddle is this handsome red-marbled Conway Stewart No. 286 fountain pen. We aren't 100% certain when these were made, but we are guessing the 1950s. We restored it with a new ink sac. There are no cracks, but the pocket clip is completely "brassed" and the cap ring has some brassing issues, too. The barrel imprints are very faded but still legible with a little help from magnification. The 14k gold nib has an odd dent near its base by the section. You will write a dry fine line. 12.5cm capped.
