    Default Vintage: Two Sheaffers and a Parker Lucky Curve

    20190712_154843 by MikeRybak356, on Flickr

    1. PARKER HAS SOLD - Parker Lucky Curve Flat Top. Looks to be a 1920s-era pen. Full-length, slender pen. Similar to a slender Duofold. Christmas Tree feed, firm fine gold nib. Replaced sac but original button. Some brassing to the clip, but not bad. Black hard rubber end pieces have pretty good color still. Nice imprint with banner. A really nice pen considering how old it is. $85 shipped in the lower 48 states.

    2. 1940s large striped Sheaffer vac-fill. This is quite a large pen - larger than a standard Balance. Cap has some shrinkage of celluloid to be expected with age. But clip still works fine. Vac fill system has been restored with a new O-ring and cover washer. New plunger headgasket as well. Some ambering, but still decent barrel transparency. Really nice, firm fine Triumph nib. Nice, full-size grip section in matching celluloid stripes. Good imprint. Some brassing to trim, but not too bad. White dot pen. $95 shipped in lower 48 states.

    3, Sheaffer 5-30 flat top. Full-length slender pen. A 1929-30ish era pen. Humped ball clip. Pinned lever. Has a couple scratched areas on the side of the barrel. Probably classified as a user grade pen. But 5-30 nib is quite smooth and nice firm fine-medium writer. New sac and new J-bar. Should make a great user for someone, especially give it's a 90-year old pen. $45 shipped in the lower 48 states.
