Hi all,

The six pens on this list have all been recently restored inside and
out and are ready to 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,
etcetera" at the bottom of this post.

Pen #1. 1947 Parker 51 in Cedar Blue with raised stacked coin Lustraloy
cap. This pen has a Vacumatic fill system. The cap has one little rub
mark on the middle of the side of the cap and it has some micro
scratches, from normal use, but it still retains most of its frosty
matte finish. The silver colored clip has some paint loss from the
blue diamond. I can repaint the diamond on request. The nib is a
smooth writing Fine 14K. The overall condition of the pen I would rate
as Excellent.

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




2. circa 1930 Mabie Todd Swallow flat top fountain pen in cream and
black. There is some typical brassing across the ball on the clip and
the fill lever has a little bit of pitting, but is much, much better
than average. The barrel has some mild discoloration. This pen was
made in England. The nib is a Flexible Extra Fine, that takes moderate
pressure to spread the tines. It has a tendency to make railroad
tracks, if you apply too much pressure. The nib is marked marked M.T.
& Co. - 14 Ct. This is a long slender pen, capped it measures 5 3/16
inches or 13.1 cm.

Price $135.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping
see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.




3. 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 $85.00 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 can also ship to other countries by
Priority Mail, but I prefer to ship by Express International Mail. I
have to charge by Express International Mail, depending on which
country the item will be sent to, but it can be insured and can
usually be tracked online.

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!
