Vintage Pens: 2906: LeBoeuf: 75 Unbreakable
Hold on to your hats, Ladies and Gentlemen. A cocobolo finish is even more stunning in real life on this LeBoeuf 75 Unbreakable fountain pen. It is hard to believe this is a vintage pen, let alone an extremely early celluloid pen, given the vibrancy and lack of wear. No cracks. There's a spot of brassing on the lever filler and even less on the clip. The pen has been restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for close-ups. You'll notice a scratch under the 8 on the original 14k gold nib. No cracks in the nib. It writes a very smooth, dry extra-fine line with a tiny bit of flex. The imprint is worn in the center but reads "Unbreakable" on the top line and "Springfield, Mass." on the bottom line. On the flat tail the 75 imprint is very clean. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2908 Waterman 452.5 V (tc)
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 2908: Waterman: 452.5 V (tc)
Waterman rarities are lots of fun. Originally listed in the 1925 catalog, this Waterman 452 1/2 V (tc) is both a hard-to-find sterling silver pattern AND really hard-to-find cap. The (tc) stands for "Telescoping Cap." While in a normal short cap position, it looks a little like a safety filler. However, with the cap extended to full length and posted on the tail, the pen is a slender but full-sized pen at about 5 3/4-inches or 14.5cm. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for a great close up of its 14k gold #2 nib. Naturally, the nib has FLEX from a very smooth XF to 1mm. It isn't a wet noodle, but it has respectable flex. The pen has elegant initials, but they seem to blend into the pattern, which looks like tall grasses in the summer. There is a little dent near the tail, but it, too, blends into the look of the pen. 9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2916 Wahl-Eversharp Lowey Symphony
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 2916: Wahl-Eversharp: Lowey Symphony
Hard-to-find Lowey caps are always able to put a smile on our faces. The split-level cap design is a space age effect that we love from the post-war era. The Eversharp Symphony is an otherwise nice, basic lever-filling vintage pen. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Showing moderate to heavy wear with scratches in places, it writes a nice wet, fine line with its original 14k gold nib. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2904 LeBoeuf #8
Filling Mechanism: Sleeve Filler)
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $1,750.00
Vintage Pens: 2904: LeBoeuf: #8
If you are really looking to dazzle at the next pen club meeting or impress your friends online, how about this ultra rare oversized LeBoeuf #8 vintage pen. One of the first companies to perfect celluloid pen production, this model from the very early 1930s is an impressive light ivory color with a butterscotch vein running through it. It has a few spots of discoloration, but it is in much better condition than a lot of early ivory celluloids. Fill the pen by sliding the entire barrel back to reveal a fully restored squeeze bar system. No cracks in the celluloid, light wear, some brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib sports a crack running from the section up to the 8. Click the headline for a close-up. The nib writes a dry, extra-fine line well without pressure but gets scratchy in a hurry when you add any pressure. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2905 LeBoeuf #8
Filling Mechanism: Sleeve Filler)
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $1,750.00
Vintage Pens: 2905: LeBoeuf: #8
Among the most sought vintage pens are oversized LeBoeuf pens...such as this one. Although there is some speculation about LeBoeuf being the first company to successfully create fountain pens using celluloid tubing (not rod stock), there is no denying the stunning beauty of their early efforts! Fully restored with a new ink sac and all of its original parts, this is a sleeve filler. The back half of the barrel slides back to reveal what Parker fans might think of as an aerometric squeeze filler. Its pearl-and-black design is in amazingly good condition with a few spots of discoloration you see in the photo. (Click headline for close-ups.) No cracks! A little clip brassing. There is a deep scratch around the tail and a wear mark where the lip of the cap rests against the barrel. Otherwise, only light wear. The large size 8, 14k gold nib writes a medium line with a slightly flattened tip that gives it some line variation! Technically, it even has a tiny bit of flex. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2915 Aikin Lambert Capitol Cabinet
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 2915: Aikin Lambert: Capitol Cabinet
It isn't too often that you find an Aikin Lambert that looks as if it just rolled off the assembly line. The imprint and chased black hard rubber look perfect! The imprint declares this a Aikin Lambert "Capitol Cabinet." We laughed when we read it. Wow. There was once a time when the president's cabinet was revered and respectable enough to name a pen after. Who knew?! Fully restored with a new ink sac, this vintage pen comes complete with its original 14k gold nib. The tines are a little bowed in the photo, but it writes a wet medium line with flexi tendencies. It is smooth in the sweet spot, but it sings a little. The semi-flex widens to about 1.2mm wide--not a huge variance from its wet medium nature. No cracks. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2917 Carter’s 4125
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 2917: Carter’s: 4125
Carter's Inx were a legendary ink manufacturer, and it branched out into fountain pen manufacturing in 1926. This is an early mottled orange hard rubber vintage pen. The flat tail end is marked 4125. It is a full-sized but not oversized fountain pen. There is very little wear on the pen, but the main barrel imprint is weak and there is some brassing on the cap bands and clip. The pen has been restored with a fresh ink sac. The original 14k gold nib writes a very nice fine line AND it is a semi-FLEX. It takes a little pressure to get it to flex, so it definitely isn't a wet noodle. No cracks. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2807 Laughlin Pen Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 2807: Laughlin: Pen Set
Does this pocket clip look very familiar? It ought to. It's just missing a Carter's imprint...or is it? The Laughlin Pen Company was one of the pre-eminient fountain pen manufacturers for Detroit during the early Roaring '20s. In 1926 it was sold to Carter's Ink! Carter's wanted to expand its ink business to include its own line of pens. Laughlin kept it's pen designers and makers, simply rebranding its pens and making new models as "Carter's"! We restored this original Orange Hard Rubber Laughlin fountain pen with a new ink sac. This vintage pen is a senior size pen with no serious wear or brassing. The barrel imprint is strong and legible. The 14k gold nib is a size 5 "Snapfil." It writes with a semi-flex nib that needs a little training before it will write 100% the way you want it to. Both the pen and pencil are engraved "H.E. Spiess." The pencil seems to work, although it has no 1.1mm lead. Pen measures 12.6cm capped.
