Hi all,

These pens have been restored 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:


If you intend to make a purchase, please read "Rules, Shipping,
Etc." at the bottom of this post.

Pen #1. circa 1935 Conklin Nozac standard size in green herringbone.
There is no brassing on the clip or cap band. I restored the plunger
with modern materials and it fills well. This particular version is
not imprinted with the word gauge, but it is the "5M" size. It is what
I call a twist piston fill. It has some ambering in the ink window
portion of the barrel. The barrel imprint is crisp and sharp. The nib
is a smooth writing Medium 14K. Capped the measures 5 1/4 inches or
13.4 cm. The condition is Excellent.

Price $395.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

2. c. 1932 Monroe Art Deco fountain pen in blue pearl. The pen's trim
has some pitting in the gold on the lever and brassing across the ball
of the clip. There is also some discoloration of the plastic on the
barrel and some on the cap. Also there are some light bite marks on
the last step of the barrel end, but they are not too noticeable. As
most experienced pen collectors will tell you, Monroe fountain pens
are scarce and difficult to find. The nib is a very smooth writing fat
Fine with a bit of flex. The nib is marked with a kind of horizontal
lightening bolt, Monroe and "Sky-Taper". Capped the pen measures 5 1/4
inches or 13.3 cm. The pen is what I would term as a standard size,
but a bit on the slender side. The barrel imprint is deep, but has
some wear.

Price reduced to $450.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.


3. c. 1938 Croxley in burgundy pearl and black. I have always liked
the stepped Art Deco clips and lever tabs on the Croxley pens. There
is some pitting along the ridge of the lever and a bit on the cap
band, which is typical for these pens. The barrel is imprinted "Made
in Gt Britain" and "The Croxley Pen - A Dickinson Product". The pen
has the wrong nib, but it is an upgrade, from my point of view. The
nib is a very smooth writing Parker Medium 14K that was made in the
UK. It's not too flexible, but I would call it a "soft" nib. The
plastic is very reminiscent of the black and burgundy pearl that
Parker used, but a bit lighter and has more reflective quality. Capped
the pen measures 5 inches or 12.7 cm.

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

4. circa 1934 Sheaffer's standard size Lifetime WD Balance in green
pearl and black aka marine green. The barrel has posting ring wear.
The tip of the clip has a spot of brassing on either side. The barrel
imprint has wear, but it is all legible. I noticed a bit of slight
color difference in the lower half of the cap, otherwise the color is
very nice. The nib is a smooth writing Fine 14K Lifetime. Capped the
pen measures 5 inches or 12.9 cm.

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

5. 1940's Eversharp Skyline full size set in gold filled "Dart"
engine turned pattern. In my personal experience Skylines with the
Dart pattern are the hardest to find. Harder to find than solid 14K,
sterling or stainless steel caps. There is no brassing on the pen or
pencil. The dome on the pen has a small dent on each side and a
shallow diagonal bump mark on the pen's barrel. The pencil has some
marks on the nozzle. The pencil is push button activated and is
functioning properly. The set was a presentation to a police officer and is
engraved on the cap lip in small block letters: "To Patrolman R.E.
Wagner From The Boys On His Retirement Oct. 1920 To 1942". The nib is
a smooth writing Extra Fine 14K. Capped the pen measures 5 1/4 inches
or 13.3 cm.

Price reduced to $495.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

6. circa 1932 Parker Duofold Deluxe Junior in "Moderne Black and
Pearl". The cap has triple thin-thick-thin cap bands. There is some
brassing across the clip ball. The cap has a couple of bite marks next
to the cap end and the barrel has about six bite marks. The barrel is
discolored and the cap has little or no discoloration. The nib is a
somewhat scarce two tone and is a smooth writing Fine 14K.

Price further 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. I normally ship 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 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
