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

#1. circa 1929 Mabie Todd & Co. "Swan" fountain pen in Lapis Blue. This is a long slender pen, with a No. 2 size nib. There is brassing across the top of the clip ball, also there is some pitting on the lever, which is fairly typical for Swan pens and Mabie Todd pens in general. It also has some tooth marks between the top cap band and the edge of the cap. There is some very slight discoloration of the celluloid plastic towards the barrel end. The nib is a smooth wet writing Flexible Fine 14K and will make lines up to 2 + millimeters. Capped the pen measures 5 3/8 inches or 13.7 cm. As you can see in the photos, this is really a gorgeous pen.

Price $220.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

2. circa 1939 Waterman's "513 J" silver pearl with double blue-violet stripes. The double stripes outline a light silver stripe. This one was made in Canada. This model has a standard lever, not the split lever some versions had. There is no brassing on the clip, lever or cap bands. There is discoloration on the section, which is fairly typical for silver colored 513 J's. The nib is the highlight of this pen. It has a buttery smooth flexible Broad Stub 14K nib and has a wet writing ink flow. Capped the pen measures 5 1/16 inches or 12.9 cm. The cap diameter is slightly over 1/2 inch.

Price reduced to $205.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

3. circa 1929 Parker Duofold Senior "Deluxe" set in Moderne Black and Pearl. The pen is a different one from the one I sold recently. The only damage I noticed on the pen, other than barrel discoloration, is that the barrel imprint is nearly obliterated, by some old time pen repairman polishing it too aggressively, I suspect. There is no brassing on the clip or cap bands. The pencil clip has brassing across the ball. The gold filled bands and nozzle look good. The pencil mechanism is working well and it propels and repels the lead nice and smooth. The nib is a very smooth writing fat Fine. Capped the pen measures 5 1/8 inches or 13.0 cm.

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 also ship to other countries by Priority
Mail. 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!
