    Default Some more of my pens on original advertising (1928~1960)

    Not all are an exact match to the ads, though I keep looking and hoping for something identical.

    Ad Date 1928
    Pens Shown
    Wahl 7212C (Jade) w/ 14K "Signature" (semiflex) EF
    Wahl 7202C (Rosewood Hard Rubber) w/ 14K Semiflex Needlepoint


    1931
    Sheaffer Balance Oversized (after 1930), 14K Lifetime Flexible Fine (cap is a bit newer than the body with the pin hinge, likely a replacement)


    1937
    Sheaffer Balance Craftsman in "Rose Glow" with 14K #3 Firm Fine
    Sheaffer Balance Standard Vac-Fil in "Ebonized Pearl Flakes", with 14K FeatherTouch Firm Extra Fine


    1952
    Esterbrook SJ with an 1551 Firm Medium Nib
    Esterbrook "Dollar" Pen with a "Sunburst" 3556 firm fine nib
    Kind of goofed on this one showing the whole section instead of just the nib unit (I haven't restored the pen yet)


    1956
    "1st Year" (1951) Sheaffer Snorkel Valiant with a 14K Extra Fine, has a solid gold 14K snorkel tube where most have a steel tube.


    1960
    The ad is for a PFM, but the pen is an Imperial IV Touchdown with a 14K extra fine nib (same decade, but smaller, and lacking snorkel tube), it lines up really close to the ad scale though.
