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

#1. Parker "75" fountain pen in the Grain d'Orge aka Barleycorn pattern. I think this one is silver plated over brass. It uses either a converter or cartridge. The feed is marked "F", but to me it makes a line closer to Extra Fine. The nib is 18K - .750. The condition appears to be Near mint. It has NO converter or ink cartridge.
Price reduced to $130.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.




2. circa 1925 Moore L-96 in Tuscan Red. I would not say that this version of the Tuscan Red L-96, with the black cap end and thin-wide-thin bands, is rare, but they are very scarce. The pen is about 1/4 inch longer than a Parker Duofold Senior flat top and slightly larger in diameter. There is some brassing around the bottom edge of the cap band and some in the center of the lever. I elected not to polish this pen, I just wiped it down with a jeweler's cloth, so there are some light scratches and normal signs of use. The nib is a No. 6, but it appears to me to be about the size of other company's No. 8 size nibs. The nib is a smooth writing fairly flexible Extra Fine. On the barrel there is a dark speck next to the cap lip, but it is where the pressure bar is pinned through the barrel. Capped the pen measures 5 11/16 inches or 14.5 cm. 

Price $595.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.





3. 1942 Parker "Duo Vac" pen and pencil set in red and silver. This one is the "Ingenue" model, which is about the size of a Vacumatic Junior. This one was made in Canada. There is no damage to report on the fountain pen, but pencil has a couple of cracks. The pencil works fine and you can see the crack in a fuzzy close-up photo. The nib is a smooth writing Extra Fine that has a bit of flex. The pen is a Vacumatic fill. There is no wear on the gold filled trim of the pen or pencil. Capped the pen measures 5 1/16 inches or 12.9 cm. 

Price $155.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.






4. circa 1925 Waterman's 452 fountain pen with hand engraved sterling silver overlay. The pen was used a lot and has some wear on the engraving. There is a thin strip of the bead missing, that holds the circular end piece on the top of the cap. The missing bead is about 10 mm on the top edge, above the clip. It may have worn off from rubbing against shirt pocket flaps. The original clip sterling has been replaced with a plated nickel silver clip. The clip is nice and tight and held well in my shirt pocket. The underside of the lever tab is marked sterling, but it may also be a replacement. The cap and barrel overlays do not have any dents. The nib is a smooth writing Flexible Fine 14K. Capped the pen measures 5 1/4 inches or 13.5 cm.
Price $285.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.





5. circa 1942 Eversharp Skyline set, full standard size. I believe this model was called "Gold Award" and it is gold filled. In my experience this version is probably the scarcest and hardest to find of the all metal Skyline pens and pencils. They are longitudinally lined, which I think was a short production run. These are much harder to find than the solid 14 Karat gold Skylines. The pen does have some brassing on the lever, some very small areas on the clip, two small areas on either side of the lever and a spot on the very end of the barrel. The barrel also has three dents towards the center portion. The dome on the pen has flattened spots and some small dings. Both the pen and pencil have the name Roland Morrison engraved in cursive script on the cap lips. The nib is a very smooth writing two tone fat Fine 14K with nice flow. I like the appearance of the nib so much that I took a close up shot of it. You should be able to see in the photos, the pencil's clip has plating loss. The base metal is silver color and may indeed be silver, I know some of this version of pen was made of sterling then plated. The rest of the set is regular gold filled with normal base metal. The pencil button has a small flattened spot and a very tiny bump mark next to the clip at the top. The pencil propels the lead as it should. Capped the pen measures 5 1/4 inches or 13.3 cm. The price is based on
condition (not perfect) and scarcity.

Price further reduced to $275.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.





6. 1941 Parker Vacumatic in green, made in Canada. There is no brassing on the gold filled trim and no damage to report. There is a color difference between the cap and barrel. As you can see in the photos, the color of the clear barrel segments are not mint, but very close to it. The pen has an aluminum Speedline filler and a long blind cap, double end jewels aka "2 ej. Capped the pen measures 5 inches or 12.7 cm. The condition is Excellent.
Price $165.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.            





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 which is about $34.00 USD and up to most countries, except Canada,
which is less. 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!
