Hi all,

The first two pens on this list have not been offered on the internet before.

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:


4. circa 1952 Kaweco "Sonderklasse" No. 685 in black. Fat nib alert!
Joel Hamilton just recently replaced the piston head and the pen is
filling well. The top of the cap and the barrel, near the blind cap
are areas that are a bit uneven, probably do to some slight shrinkage
of the plastic. The cap band has a bit of brassing on the top and
bottom edges, the clip and clip cover look to be free of damage. The
clip is also nice and tight. The cap end has the little inlaid Kaweco
medallion. The nib is a smooth wet writing two tone Broad Oblique in
14Ct/.585. It will make about a 1 mm line with no pressure up to about
1.5 mm line when pressure is applied, see writing sample. Capped the
pen measures 4 13/16 inches or 12.3 cm. The pen is a twist/piston fill
aka PIF, and has a knurled filler knob covered by a blind cap. From
what I can find (not much) this model is somewhat hard to find, on
either side of the pond.

Price $185.00 shipping with insurance included in the U.S. Foreign
shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.




5. circa 1956 Montblanc No. 342 in petrol blue (teal blue). Joel
Hamilton just recently replaced the piston head and the pen is filling
well. I think this is the earlier model 342, with the cap band set
about 4 mm above the edge of the cap. The gold filled clip is rose
gold colored, in nice condition and tight against the cap. The cap has
a company logo F&K inside of a circle. It was either a tire company or
an aircraft parts supplier, I could not determine which one. The MB
logo on the cap end is an imprinted outline and appears to be filled
in with white crayon. The cap fits a bit tightly to the barrel, but
you should not have to worry about the barrel parting company with the
cap in your pocket! The nib is a smooth Flexy Fine in 14Ct/.585,
marked Montblanc twice, top and bottom, see writing sample. It makes a
line about .5 mm to about 1.75 mm. I originally bought this pen from a
friend because I like the color and the soft writing nib. I will not
make any derogatory statements about the company, but I will say that
they make some damn nice nibs! Capped the pen measures 4 15/16 inches
or 12.5 mm and the diameter of the cap is about 7/16 inch or 13 mm.
The pen is a twist/piston fill aka PIF, the barrel end is the turning knob.
The pen is in Excellent condition and a nice writer!

Price $265.00 shipping with insurance included in the U.S. Foreign
shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.




6. Pelikan 100N black and tortoise. The clip has some brassing on the
tip and one edge where it curves towards the cap ring. The cap rings
also have some brassing, mostly on the upper ring. The binde is an odd
color and may have some discoloration, but it is still very attractive.
The nib is a very scarce CN (chromium nickel alloy) Scheibenspitze
Broad aka SB. Scheibenspitze means disk top. The CN nibs are not
rare, but the tip style is. It is angled and flat on the end. I could not get
a good shot that shows the flat angled writing surface of the tip. It writes
very smoothly and lays down a lot of ink. I believe the CN nibs were only
made during World War II. The plunger seal in the pen was recently
replaced by Joel Hamilton.

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







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 $24.75 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!
