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. ~SOLD~ to E.S.

 

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

2.  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.

3. 1940's Eversharp Skyline 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.

4. circa 1941 Sheaffer's "Vigilant" (?) standard size, with "over the
top military clip", in Carmine Red. There is no damage to report on
this pen. The clear barrel segments are very nice with little or no
discoloration. This is one is a wire/rod plunger filler and the
filling system has been restored and the pen fills well. The nib is a
smooth Extra Fine two tone 14K and is up-swept towards the tip. Capped
the pen measures 5 1/2 inches or 13.3 cm. The condition is Excellent
plus.

Price reduced to $175.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

5. 1945 Parker Vacumatic Major in golden brown. There is no brassing
on the clip or cap band. The barrel has about average discoloration to
the clear segments. The paint in the blue diamond is original and
intact. The reflective qualities in the plastic are quite nice and
it's a good looking pen! The nib is a very smooth writing Fine y.g.
14K. I know I marked the writing sample as an "Ex-Fine", but it seems
to write a bit wider than that. Capped the pen measures 5 inches or
12.7 cm.

Price reduced to $140.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

6. 1936 Sheaffer's "Vacuum" (WASP) in green swirled pearl and black.
It's the pattern that is sometimes called "Bird's Eye" and various
other names. It has some pitting and plating wear on the lever. The
barrel is imprinted "Vacuum" and the nib is stamped "WASP 6". These
pens have always fascinated me and I think they are one of the most
interesting and prettiest plastics made in the 1930's. The nib is a
smooth Extra Fine 14K. Capped the pen measures 5 inches or 12.7 cm.

Price reduced to $145.00 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
