If you intend to make a purchase, please read "Rules, Shipping, Etc." at the bottom of this post.
 
#1. circa 1923 Parker Duofold Junior in red hard rubber with "Giant Imprint". I did a light hand polish on the cap and barrel. It has some light scratches and marks in different places. There is a line of brassing on the bottom edge of the cap band that goes about one third of the way around the band. The barrel imprint is deep with raised edges. The milling on the cap end and blind cap show very little wear. The clip ball has typical brassing across the top. The cap and barrel threads feel a bit tight, like the threads are dry or something. The nib is a smooth writing fat Fine 14K with nice flow. Capped the pen measures 5 9/16 inches or 11.7 cm. I know that I stated on my writing sample that the pen is circa 1922, but after I did a bit more research, I believe that it must have been made around 1923.
 
Price reduced to $295.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

2. 1940's Eversharp Skyine standard size fountain pen in black, with custom ground stub nib. The only damage on the pen are four tiny bump marks on the barrel. There is no brassing on the trim. I ground and polished the nib tip to be a smooth writing stub with some line variation, but not too sharp, like a crisp italic nib would be. It is a very smooth writing 14K nib that borders between a medium and a broad, at about .33 inch or .85 mm. It is a wet writing nib and a pleasure to use. Capped the pen measures 5 1/4 inches or 13.5 cm.

Price $145.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

3.  ~SOLD~ to E.H.
 
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~ tp E.S. $350.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

4. 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.

5. circa 1928 Conklin Endura flat top in bronze and black. The pen is what I would consider a standard size, Conklin called this size "Medium". The clip has a patch of brassing at the top and on the tip (see photos) and the lower band has brassing on one side around to the back side. The barrel imprint has some wear, but it is deep and all of it is legible. The nib is fairly large, smooth writing Fine 14K with crescent shaped vent hole. The nib has good flow and makes nice wet dark lines. Capped the pen measures 5 inches or 14.1 cm.

Price reduced to $155.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

6. ~SOLD~

 

circa 1934 Sheaffer's standard size Lifetime WD Balance pen in black and white pearl. The only damage I found on this pen is some scratches on one side of the clip band has a tiny bump mark on the cap band, under the clip and the band has a few scratches. The barrel imprint is deep and distinct. The nib is an Extra Fine 14K Lifetime. Capped the pen measures 5 1/4 inches or 13.3 cm. The color is not what I would call perfect, but it is exceptional. It has a patch of very slight ambering on the cap and small patch of very slight ambering on the barrel. I installed a real silicone ink sac, to help preserve the color of the plastic. Check out the photos.

~SOLD~ $155.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

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
