View Full Version : Two Great Vintage User Pens. Sheaffer, Aurora.

October 2nd, 2012, 07:57 PM
After trying a bunch of pens, I'm getting closer to narrowing down the pens to the ones i like alot. These are two great pens. One of them is one of my favorite vintage pens ever, but is not suitable for school use.

1. Vintage Aurora 88- Great desk user pen. I say desk because it tends to leak when carried around for a couple hours. Its fine otherwise. General wear, some brassing on the cap edge and clip, slight discoloration of HR. Otherwise pretty clean. Smooth somewhat flexible XXF Nib, dry when un flexed, and wet when flexed. $89 Shipped CONUS
2. Sheaffer Triumph Crest- Freshly restored by Ron Zorn. Very good condition, with only minor dents (2) to the cap. Ink view section works great. Overall a great user pen, at home or at work. XF nib would be good for carbon copies. $75 + Shipping
I am open to trades for one of the following pens (I may combine my pens in exchange for yours.)
-OMAS Milord ( two or one greek key bands, F XF, or M nib.) I would give both of my pens and more if needed.
-Pelikan 400 If a green model, it would trade for one of my pens, if a brown stripe, both of my pens.
-Parker Vacumatic Burgundy (correct TWO tone nib)
-Lamy 2000 M-XF nib. good nib, good condition

Thanks for Looking!!

You may be best off doing that. It's a shame, if I had money and lived in the US I'd have had them both, especially the Aurora...

Hopefully by next week I'll have secured a job (well, PhD position), if so, we can talk.

Hi Will:

I'm interested in the Sheaffer. What about I pay the difference for that? Please advise. Iain Benson (off today for London then Canada again).

Just send it to Toronto (same address at Miller Thomson). Perhaps this time register it! :)

75-55=$20+ INSURED ;) shipping which would be around $10 dollars. So you pay $30. Does that sound alright?
