Hi all,

These pens have been restored inside and outside and are ready to fill with ink and use, unless noted otherwise.

If you see one or more pens that you like, please reply to me at:

 

michael@northwestpenworks.com

If you intend to make a purchase, please read "Rules, Shipping,

Etc." at the bottom of this post.

#1. Conklin "4 NL" in black chased hard rubber. I think this one was certainly made later than 1913 and before 1920. It has the second version of the pocket clip that they used. The clip has a bend and some brassing on top and on the edges of the bend. The cap band and crescent do not have any brassing. The right tine of the nib has a slight bit of a wrinkle, but the tip halves are perfectly aligned. The barrel imprints and chasing are very good, but the cap may have some chasing wear towards the top. The hard rubber has mild discoloration. The nib is a smooth writing Flexible (fat) Fine 14K and writes dark, wet lines. It will make a 2 millimeter line when pressure is applied. Capped the pen measures 5 7/16 inches or 13.8 cm.

Price $195.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

2. ~SOLD~

 

circa 1929 Parker Duofold Junior Streamline in Jade Green. The color of the cap and barrel are perfect and well matched. The clip has brassing across the ball. The nib is a smooth wet writing fat Fine or Medium 14K. *NOTE* it does not presently have an ink sac, I left it off to preserve the color. I can install a real silicone ink sac, if you request it. I dipped the nib to test it. Capped the pen measures 4 1/2 inches or 11.4 cm. How would I grade the pen? You would likely have a hard time finding another example with this nice of color.

~SOLD~ $435.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

3. ~SOLD~

 

circa 1929 Parker Duofold Junior Streamline pen and pencil set in Mandarin Yellow. The color in the pen and pencil are not quite perfect, they are very good. The color in the pen is a bit better than the pencil, as the pencil seems to be slightly darker, but I would attribute that to pencil coming from a different plastic batch than the pen. The pen has brassing across the clip ball. The pen's barrel imprint is very good and deep where you normally expect it. The pencil has some brassing on the top of the clip and across the ball and there is some brassing on its top band. The pencil mechanism is working well. The nib is a smooth Fine 14K with nice ink flow. I have installed a real silicone ink sac to preserve the color. Capped the pen measures 4 3/4 inches or 12.1 cm.

~SOLD~ $375.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

4. ~SOLD~

 

circa 1934 Sheaffer's Balance oversize fountain pen in Jade Green. There is no brassing on the trim. There is a color difference between the cap and barrel, although the color is perfect on both of the parts. The nib is a smooth writing Extra Fine Lifetime 14K. Capped the pen measures 5 5/8 inches or 14.3 cm. The condition is Excellent.

~SOLD~ $275.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

5. ~SOLD~

 

circa 1927 Wahl in Jade Green. I do not know the model designation for this one. This is a very unusual fountain pen and fairly scarce. In the photos notice the black band under the black cap end. Also, take note of the unusually long section and the narrow and long nib. The plastic has some discoloration. It is a slender pen, which I believe was intended for use by secretaries, stenographers and accountants. The nib is a smooth moderately flexible Extra Fine 14K. Capped the pen measures 5 3/8 inches or 13.1 cm.

~SOLD~ $175.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

The cap end and blind cap have discoloration. The nib is a smooth wet writing Fine 14K. Capped the pen measures 4 1/2 inches or 11.5 cm.

Rules, Shipping, Etc.

The usual rules apply, the person sending the first e-mail on an item
~stating intent to purchase~ gets the item. I will give you 5 days to
decide if you like the pen or not. I prefer payment by PayPal but also
accept checks or money orders in USD. I can only accept payment by
PayPal from countries outside the U.S. I ship worldwide, so
international customers are always welcome.



Prices are post paid in the U.S., and will be shipped with a tracking
number and insurance. I normally ship inside the U.S. by U.S.
Postal Service Priority Mail. I also ship to other countries by Priority
Mail which is about $34.00 USD and up to most countries, except Canada,
which is less. I can also ship to other countries by Express International Mail,
if you request it, but it is costly.


Return Policy: I will always allow pens, or other items, to be
returned. If there is a problem I would prefer the chance to fix the problem
or replace the item, when and if possible. Otherwise a full refund
will be offered. If you find a problem and choose to send the item
(pen, mechanical pencil, etc.) to someone else to be corrected, I will
not be responsible for any other problems.

Happy penning!

Michael McNeil
