SOLD: Conway Stewart Marlborough in Classic Green

conway_stewart_marlborough-51

conway_stewart_marlborough-51I bought this Conway Stewart Marlborough in Classic Green resin with the intention of doing a review, but never got around to it. It’s brand new, unused, in mint condition and comes with the original box and papers.

The Classic Green resin is one of my favorite Conway Stewart materials. Shimmering shades of green flakes float atop a black background with white highlights providing contrast, depth and complexity that rivals the most beautiful celluloids. The clip and lever filler are gold plated while both bands on the barrel are solid 18k gold. The matching solid 18k gold nib is of medium width and is a perfect candidate for a stub, cursive italic, or even an Architect grind, which can be added for no additional charge.

This pen is in absolute mint condition. Get it now for only $450, a significant discount from its MSRP of $615. SOLD

For more information, please visit the Conway Stewart Marlborough product page.

Price includes USPS First Class shipping in the US. USPS Priority small flat rate box is $6. USPS Priority small flat rate box with insurance is $13. International shipping available via USPS Priority Mail International for $30.

SOLD: Delta Dolcevita Turchese Piston w/ factory Stub

delta_dolcevita-50

delta_dolcevita-50For Sale is a Delta Dolcevita Turchese Piston. This pen is the same size as the medium Dolcevita but features an integrated piston instead of a cartridge/converter. It was commissioned by Chatterley Luxuries and came in two trim colors: gold and silver. The cap bands are made from solid .925 sterling silver and are hallmarked on the back. This version of the pen was limited to 38 pieces, this one being #12. On the back of the cap, just above the cap band you can see the designation “12/38.”

delta dolcevita writing sample

The 18k gold nib came with a factory Stub that has been tuned by Mike Masuyama and lays down a line exactly 1.0mm wide. The pen was sent to Italy to have the piston serviced and was polished from top to bottom giving it that mint, factory-fresh look. The turquoise celluloid is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Be sure to check out the video below to see it from all sides. For more information, you can read my review at FPGeeks. $500 SOLD

Price includes USPS First Class shipping in the US. USPS Priority small flat rate box is $6. USPS Priority small flat rate box with insurance is $13. International shipping available via USPS Priority Mail International for $30.

SOLD: Montblanc 149 w/ 0.4mm Cursive Italic

149-50

149-51

For sale is a Montblanc 149 with a custom ground 0.4mm cursive italic nib. There’s noticeable line variation and it’s smooth enough to be used as a daily writer. It’s one of my favorites and if I didn’t have another 149 I wouldn’t be selling this one. There’s really no need for two of the same pen, so here ya go.

The pen is in very good condition. The ink window is clear. The piston operates smoothly. There’s no wear or brassing on any of the plated hardware. The resin is in excellent condition with very minor surface scratches. Most you can’t see unless you get the pen in the perfect light.

If you’re not a fan of the cursive italic grind, I can smooth it out to a stub or bring it back to a round medium at no additional cost. $450 SOLD

Price includes USPS First Class shipping in the US. USPS Priority small flat rate box is $6. USPS Priority small flat rate box with insurance is $13. International shipping available via USPS Priority Mail International for $30.

For Sale: Montegrappa Extra in Midnight Blue Celluloid w/ 0.5mm Cursive Italic Nib

montegrappa_extra_1930-52

montegrappa_extra_1930-50montegrappa_extra_1930-53

For sale is a Montegrappa Extra in Midnight Blue celluloid, the precursor to the Extra 1930 that we know today. The Extra was introduced in 1999 while the newer, slightly revised Extra 1930 was introduced in 2005. You can read more about the pen’s history here. The Montegrappa Extra features a piston filling system and solid .925 sterling silver hardware including the section, cap band, clip, and end pieces on the cap and piston knob.

The massive 18k gold nib is as large as that found on the Montblanc 149 and is truly a sight to behold. The medium nib in this pen has been ground to a 0.5mm cursive italic. If the buyer chooses, the nib can easily be smoothed into a stub or brought back to its original round point at no additional cost.

montegrappa extra writing sample

The Midnight Blue celluloid is comprised of a dark blue, almost black base with streaks of light blue shimmering throughout. It show’s up pretty well in the first image above, but definitely check out the video at the bottom of this post to see the entire pen. The barrel imprint reads “MONTE GRAPPA EXTRA” and is reminiscent of their older designs.

This is a wonderful pen and an even better writer. The only reason I’m selling it is because I have an Extra 1930 and I’m trying to raise funds to go to the 2015 LA Pen Show. The pen is in very good condition with only minor surface scratches that could easily be polished out to bring back that pristine, factory new look. $600

The Bexley Intrepid is a medium sized pen with a classic design in black with chrome trim. The medium Bexley steel nib is a smooth writer with moderate flow that should please most users. The cap posts securely and can be comfortably used with or without doing so. The Intrepid uses the cartridge/converter filling system but can be transformed to an eye-dropper for maximum capacity. It should be noted, though, that there is no o-ring on the section to seal the barrel, but the threads are tight and the barrel seals very well on its own. The pen is in mint condition and comes with all original packaging. $95

For Sale: Bexley 58 with 1.1mm stub

LB5-21

LB5-23

LB5-24

LB5-22

The size and shape of the Model 58 are reminiscent of a very hard-to-find, expensive vintage pen, but without that hefty price tag.

The Model 58 is just over 6 inches long when closed, and one-half inch in diameter. The cap fits properly on the end of the barrel when opened for writing, resulting in a pen that is seven and one-half inches long.

The Model 58 can filled using the included converter or can easily be turned into an eye-dropper. An o-ring on the section seals the barrel tight, preventing any possible leaks.

The stock nib has been swapped out for a jet black Monteverde 1.1mm stub. The cap band and clip have been removed to create a simple black pen with some serious nibbage. $140



Price includes USPS First Class shipping in the US. USPS Priority small flat rate box is $6. USPS Priority small flat rate box with insurance is $11. International shipping available via USPS Priority Mail International for $30.

For sale is an original production Tibaldi Impero fountain pen made from one of the most gorgeous celluloids I’ve seen. The black celluloid has large flakes of shimmering grey and silver with streams of metallic blue flowing throughout. There are three items to look for on an original production Impero: the word “TIBALDI” engraved on the barrel, the serial number engraved on the section (E023 in this case), and a nib with the “Tibaldi Extra 750″ imprint. This pen has all of those and comes with its original packaging and ink.

This Tibaldi Impero comes with a medium 18k gold nib and fills using a piston filler. The nib is soft and very smooth with moderate flow that’s slightly more dry than wet and without any flow issues. The flow can be increased if the buyer chooses. The pen is in mint condition and operates perfectly.

For sale is a black Pilot Fermo retractable nib fountain pen that has been gently used and is in mint condition. Unlike the Vanishing Point with the push-button mechanism the Fermo uses a twist mechanism. With 3/4 of a turn of the rear knob the nib shoots out the front of the pen. To retract the nib, only a 1/4 turn in the opposite direction is required before the tension sucks the nib back inside.

The Fermo is slimmer than the standard Vanishing Point which makes it much more comfortable for many users. It also uses the same nib unit so you can swap it any other Vanishing Point nibs you may have. The included nib is a medium, rhodium-plated 18k gold unit. This pen includes all original papers and packaging and comes with an unused cartridge and the CON-50 twist converter. The Pilot Fermo lists at $325 but normally sells for $260. Pick up this excellent example for only $200. SOLD

For Sale: Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Flat Top in Jade Green

Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal-53

Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal-44

Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal-45

Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal-46

For sale is a Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal Flat Top fountain pen in Jade Green. The Gold Seal was Wahl-Eversharp’s symbol for Lifetime Guarantee, similar to Sheaffer’s White Dot. These Gold Seal pens were produced starting in 1928 and sold through 1931. This particular pen is one size smaller than the Oversize, measuring 134.5mm (5.3″) capped, 125.3mm (4.93″) uncapped, and 173.5mm (6.81″) posted with a barrel diameter of 12mm (0.47″).

The lever filling system works well and the sac looks new, but was not replaced by me. The Jade Green material has excellent color with some slight darkening in the middle of the cap. The thin bands on the cap and at the rear of the barrel are in good condition showing some signs of wear. The clip is also in good condition with a few spots of pitting on the bend near the top of the cap. The lever shows some plating wear on one side.

The 14k gold nib produces an extra fine line that’s one of the smoothest I’ve ever used. There is a little flex to the nib, but calling it semi-flex is being generous. Flow is slightly dry which allows ink to dry on the page fairly quickly. The nib and feed screw in and out of the section easily and can be swapped with any nib unit from the Wahl-Eversharp Personal Point system. This is a beautiful pen that’s just begging to be used. $240



Price includes USPS First Class shipping in the US. USPS Priority small flat rate box with insurance is $11. International shipping available via USPS Priority Mail International for $30.

aurora88-63

aurora88-54

aurora88-55

aurora88-56

This Aurora 88 has a serial number of 1825988 which would date it to approximately 1954. It features a celluloid barrel and piston knob with an ebonite section that has slightly lightened in color. This particular pen features a chrome cap with one very small pin size ding and some spots of discoloration in the chrome. Overall, the cap and clip are in good condition that shows some signs of wear.

The “Aurora 88″ and serial number imprint in the section are a little more faint than what I’ve seen on other pens but still readable. The barrel where the section screws into is free of cracks with the ink window showing some ambering but still very clearly shows the ink level. The piston sealed has been restored and operates smoothly, fully filling the pen with ink. The 14k gold, fine semi-flex nib is a joy to use with moderate flow under normal writing condition and becoming very wet when flexed. The nib is smooth without any signs of scratchiness or tooth. This pen would make a great daily user in conditions where it may pick up a scratch or two. $150 SOLD

This Aurora 88 has a serial number of 1724561 which would date it to approximately 1954. It features a celluloid barrel with an ebonite section and piston knob that are still very black and not discolored like many other ebonite pieces are. This particular pen features a gold filled cap free of dings or dents, but it does have some light scratching. Overall, the cap and clip are in great condition, free of any brassing or chipping.

The “Aurora 88″ and serial number imprint in the section are crisp and clean and very readable. The barrel where the section screws into is free of cracks with the ink window showing some ambering but still very clearly shows the ink level. The piston sealed has been restored and operates smoothly, fully filling the pen with ink. The 14k gold, medium semi-flex nib is a joy to use, but you’ll go through a lot of ink as it gets very wet and wild when flexed. The nib is smooth without any signs of scratchiness or tooth. The nib even writes very smooth when turned upside with reduced flow that would make it great for using on paper that’s less than fountain pen friendly. $190

SOLD: Parker “51” Cordovan Brown Vacumatic with 1/10 14k Gold Filled Cap

_MG_0230

_MG_0234 _MG_0223

This Parker “51” was made in Q4 of 1948. The barrel imprint under the clutch ring is faint, but readable. This pen has a new diaphragm and the collector and nib has been thoroughly cleaned. The fine nib is smooth, but has some texture to it. I can adjust it to be glass smooth if you prefer. The flow is on the dry side which allows the ink to dry very quickly (especially useful if you’re a lefty) but not so dry to create writing issues. The flow can be easily increased for no additional charge if the buyer chooses. The cap is 1/10 14k gold filled and shows signs of corrosion. The clip shows signs of brassing around the edge of the arrow and the top ring around the jewel. $85 SOLD
