For Sale – Vintage Esterbrooks (nibs optional)

The vintage Esterbrooks are too thin and light for me to use comfortably for any extended writing on my part. Now that I have modern (and bigger) pens that can use my Esterbrook nibs it’s time to release my vintage Esterbrooks back into the wild.

There’s no boxes or paperwork included. Nibs are optional and available at an added cost. The pens are in excellent condition.

Shipping in the U.S. is $7.90 (small flat rate box) for as many pens as will fit in the box unless otherwise noted. Payment is via PayPal Goods & Services and ships only to addresses in the PayPal payment. Sorry, no international shipping for these pens. U.S. based forwarding services are OK as long as the address is in your PayPal payment.

Prices are firm, although multiple pen purchases won’t increase shipping costs as long as they fit in the box. Unlike my other recent sales, there’s no quantity discount for the Esterbrook pens.

The first firm “I want it” gets the pen and I’ll send a PayPal invoice, questions will not hold a pen. Contact me using the contact form on this page, or email me at ray[@]fpquest.com (remove the brackets).

These prices are for the pen only, no nib, no boxes. Nibs are optional and there’s a selection below. All pens have been tested and are in excellent working condition, but any restoration would have been done in 2013 or earlier.

Please request but pen number (1,2,3,4,5) to avoid any confusion.

1. Esterbrook Model SJ in Dubonnet Red (aka Red), no nib, excellent conditions – $25.00 (SOLD)

2. Esterbrook Model J in Dubonnet Red (aka Red), no nib, excellent conditions – $25.00

3. Esterbrook Model J in Foliage Green (aka Green I), no nib, excellent conditions – $25.00

4. Esterbrook Model J in Foliage Green (aka Green I), no nib, very good condition, the one flaw is that the clip is slightly crooked so appears off-center – $20.00

5. Esterbrook Model J in Fern Green (aka Green II), no nib, excellent conditions – $25.00

Nibs (Optional)

Nibs are only available with an Esterbrook pen purchase and only one nib per pen. Quantities are limited and first-come, first-served. All nibs are used, no boxes included. I’ll install the nib in the pen unless you request otherwise.

Esterbrook #1550 Firm Extra Fine (3 available): $5/each

Esterbrook #1551 Firm Medium (1 available): $6/each

Some Vintage Parkers are still available for sale and I reduced their prices. I’ve also added a Conklin (Modern Crescent Filler) and a couple Pilot Vanishing Point Limited Editions to the For Sale Page.

For Sale – Some Sheaffers

The remaining Sheaffer for saleIt’s time to make some painful cuts to my accumulation. It’s time to pass some beautiful Sheaffers along to people who will use them. These are Sheaffers I don’t use despite them being terrific pens. The Crests, Snorkel and Targa are too thin for me to use comfortably for extended periods, while the PFM I is a duplicate and I’m keeping the better color.

Boxes and paperwork are not included. Converters are included for pens that use a converter, see the listing for the type of converter that is included. Converters are recent purchases and probably don’t match the style of the original converter.

Shipping in the U.S. is $7.90 (small flat rate box) for as many pens as will fit in the box unless otherwise noted. Payment is via PayPal Goods & Services and ships only to addresses in the PayPal payment. Sorry, no international shipping for these pens. U.S. based forwarding services are OK as long as the U.S. address is in your PayPal payment.

Prices are firm, although multiple pen purchases won’t increase shipping costs as long as they fit in the box. Plus I’ll take 5% off the pen prices if you purchase more than one pen at the same time.

The first firm “I want it” gets the pen and I’ll send a PayPal invoice. Contact me using the contact form on this page, or email me at ray[@]fpquest.com (remove the brackets).

For Sale: 2 Pelikans and 1 Waterman

 

These three pens have the distinction of meeting my requirements to be sold (unused for over two years) but I found an excuse not to sell them on my first pass. After additional consideration, I decided to go ahead and sell them.
.
The photos in this post are all current. Feel free to contact me with any questions, although the first firm “I want it” gets the pen.
If you’re interested, reach me using “ray [@] fpquest.com” or use the contact form here. U.S. shipping is included in the price (USPS Priority Mail). International shipping is available but very expensive (I require insurance and tracking), contact me for details.

Pelikan M620 Cities Series Piccadilly Circus, Medium 18K Gold Nib – $300 (SOLD)

 

Excellent condition. No box or paperwork. A signature is required for delivery unless you opt-out of the signature.

Waterman Liaison Cobra, Fine 18K Gold Nib – $175 (SOLD)

 

Excellent condition. This is a strange pen, which appeals to me. The end of the pen twists like a piston knob, but instead, it releases the section/converter which is lowered out of the pen. The converter is included with the pen. No box or paperwork is included. A signature is required for delivery unless you opt-out of the signature. I reviewed this pen back in February 2013, the review is here.

Pelikan M101N Lizard, Extra Fine 14K Gold Nib – $375 (Withdrawn)

 

Excellent condition. This is the model released in 2013, not the vintage M101N that this pen was a homage to. No box or paperwork, just the pen. A signature is required for delivery unless you opt-out of the signature. I reviewed this pen here.
