Hi all,

These pens all have been restored inside and out and are ready to fill with ink and use.

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


If you intend to make a purchase, please read "Rules, shipping, et cetera" at the bottom of this post.

1. circa 1949 Eversharp Symphony with chromed cap, g.f. trim and burgundy barrel. The cap has a couple of small light scratches and micro scratches, that are mostly on the sides where the pen rested, but the condition is better than average, in my experience. The cap is not a so called stepped Slipper Cap, but the round version. The nib is a smooth writing Extra Fine 14K, with some flex. Capped the pen measures 5 7/16 inches or 14 cm. This is a lever fill pen.

Price $99.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.









2. 1949 Parker 51 Demi size Aerometric in gray with Lustraloy
(stainless steel) cap. The cap has a lot of light scratches and
micro-scratches from normal use and the clip ring has pitting and
bubbling of the plating around the bottom edge. The cap has three
little bump marks on the back side. Also, the cover tube, over the ink
sac, has some spots of corrosion. The ink sac is surprisingly clear.
It had purple ink in it, when I flushed it out. The nib is a smooth
Extra Fine 14K. Capped the pen measures 5 inches or 12.7 cm.

Price $99.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.







3. 1950's Sheaffer's Tuckaway "Statesman" in black. I am not sure of
the exact date the pen was made. It could have been made between 1949
and about 1955. It has a Touchdown filling system, as you can see in
the photo of the pen with the cap off. The Tuckaways have an unusually
short spring loaded pocket clip, that holds well on shirt pockets. The
nib is a very smooth writing Medium two tone 14K No. 5. I can't quite
call it a stub, but it is more of a stub nib than it is a ball nib.
You can see some line variation in my writing sample. Capped the pen
measures 4 11/16 inches or 11.9 cm. The pen is in Excellent condition
with a deep, sharp barrel imprint and no damage of any sort.

Price $99.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.







4. 1950's Sheaffer's Snorkel "Admiral" in Black. The pen is in Mint
condition and has never been inked. I am unsure of the date it was
made, but it has a Snorkel tube that is squared off on the end,
instead of having a diagonal end. It has the original paper band on
the section, which states "MEDIUM". There is no damage to the pen. I did
not replace the ink sac or seals, so it is in its original state. I
did test it and it took up water.

Price $99.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.





5. circa 1958 Parker Debutante "Princess" Jotter ball point in turquoise blue, with engine turned pattern. There is a little paint loss, but nothing major. One area you can see in both photos and it looks like a scratch. The other area is a small flake of paint that chipped off down by the tip. I put a new refill in the pen. This model was only made for a short time and they can be difficult to find. This model was intended as a purse pen and does not have a pocket clip. My photos do not do this pen justice, it is a very beautiful pen. Larger than a standard Jotter.

Price $75.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.





6. early 1940's Esterbrook transitional fountain pen in Fern Green, largest size. One great thing about these 40's Esterbrooks is the pocket clips and trim are made of stainless steel and they never brass, corrode or tarnish. The cap end jewel has three ribs and gives these pens an Art Deco appearance and match the ribbed pocket clip. The nib is a smooth writing Medium, number 9668, with a hard iridium tip. It writes a nice wet dark line. Capped the pen measure 5 inches or 12.5 cm.
Price reduced to $75.00 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, which is about $34.00 to most countries,
except Canada, which is less. I can also ship to other countries by
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
