Pen Description
01 Verde Green Conklin RIngtop, Extra FineSemi-Flex Nib
SOLD Nib alert!Condition: B. No brassing, chips, cracks, or significant scratches. A small ding in the gold cap cover. Wonderful color and a stunning pen. 14K nib is a beauty offering a line variation of 0.4 mm to 0.8 mm and has a very slight right foot oblique. Lever filler. Length: 41/4" (108 mm) capped, 51/2" (140 mm) posted. Price: $175.00  Top of Page
02 Gate City New Dunn, Medium Nib
SOLD Condition: B+. No brassing, chips, cracks, dings or significant scratches. We found this at a pen show last year in perfect condition in the box and still had the smoothing certificate signed by Richard Binder in 2013. Because we do not know the history of the pen, we rebuilt the internals and the pen is like new condition. Pump filler. Length: 53/8" (137 mm) capped, 71/16" (179 mm) posted. Price: $225.00  Top of Page
03 Burgundy and Black Parker Duofold Juniorette, Extra Fine Nib
Condition: B. No brassing, chips, cracks, dings or significant scratches. A classy and elegant pen from the 1930s. Slight wear to imprint, but an otherwise clean pen. The nib provides a 0.4 mm line width. Button filler. Length: 41/2" (114 mm) capped, 558" (143 mm) posted. Price: $150.00 Top of Page
04 Emerald Green Parker Vacumatic Major, Extra Fine Semi-Flex Nib
Nib alert!Condition: C.  No brassing, chips, cracks, dings or significant scratches. This pen is a bit of an anomaly because the body is U.S.A. manufactured and the nib is Canadian. It is all about the nib and boy, is it a fun pen to write with. If you want a good looking Vac with a bit of flex at a reasonable price, this is your pen. Best if written with at a lower angle, just under 45 degrees. Nice line variation without going overboard. Gives a line variation of 0.4 mm to 0.75 mm. The barrel is ambered, the imprint is worn where the date code normally is and there are a couple of tooth marks on the blind cap. Vacumatic filler. Length: 51/8" (130 mm) capped, 534" (146 mm) posted. Price: $145.00  Top of Page
05 Azure Blue Parker Vacumatic DJ Major, Extra Fine Semi-Flex Nib
SOLD Nib alert!Condition: B. No Brassing, chips, cracks, dings or significant scratches. Full blown Canadian version with an interesting date code of 1Q1952. Because this was a Canadian market pen is had the blue diamond clip after 1947. Sweet little mild flex nib that offers 0.4 mm to 0.8 mm line widths. Vacumatic filler. Length: 514" (133 mm) capped, 6" (152 mm) posted. Price: $175.00  Top of Page

07 Black Parker 51 Aerometric, Extra Fine Nib
SOLD Condition: B-.  No brassing, chips, dings, cracks, or significant scratches. A beautiful 51 with an interesting date code of 5.1., which we suspect was an error in the die setup. This was also the time that the 51 cap switched to the shorter arrow clip. Extra fine nib will lay down a 0.4 mm line with no pressure. Length: 51/2" (140 mm) capped, 6" (152 mm) posted. Price: $125.00  Top of Page
08 Black Parker 75, Fine Nib
SOLD Condition: B.  No brassing, chips, cracks, dings or significant scratches. A very smart looking pen with an 18K fine nib that is quite the smooth writer.

11 Black Sheaffer Snorkel Admiral, Flexible Stub Nib
SOLD Nib alert!Condition: B+. No brassing, chips, cracks, dings or significant scratches. Snorkel filler. An absolute monster of a nib.

All of our tray pens are fully restored to good writing condition unless otherwise noted. By “good writing condition” is meant, in addition to proper function, that nibs are aligned, set for reasonable flow, and not scratchy. Particularly nice writers are so noted in their descriptions.

Except for pens that are described as being in “mint” or NOS condition, these are used pens. We guarantee all of our restoration work (resacking, nib adjustments, etc.), and we ship the pens in good working order. However, they are still used pens, and we cannot make the same guarantees against defects or for length of life that their manufacturers made (such as Sheaffer's Lifetime guarantee).

CAUTION

Empirical evidence collected over several years has made it clear that some Noodler’s inks can and will destroy pens. Many vintage pens, because of the materials of which they are made, are especially susceptible to destruction by these inks. For this reason, our guarantee is void if a pen you purchase from us fails after you have used any Noodler’s ink in it. For more information, read our article on inks

We grade pens according to the following condition scale. Within a grade, we use + or – to indicate shades of variation; for example, a pen that is B+ falls into the B grade and shows so little use that it is only marginally not A2.

A1 “Mint” (uninked). Shows no signs of use.
A2 “Mint” (inked). As for A1 but may have been dipped or inked.
