Extraordinary Vintage Pens

1
1929 Aurora Duplex Medium LF in Marbled Blue (Lapis). The first Aurora celluloid pen. Made in two sizes: large with a #5 nib and medium with a # 2 ½ nib. An incredibly rare pen – with a bonus: a fine, triple-flexible nib! See the Aurora below for more historical information. Perhaps a shade of darkening here and there, otherwise near mint+.
$1950

2
1930 Aurora Duplex Large lever-fill in Jade with Black ends. The "Duplex" was Aurora’s first celluloid pen. A “Duofold” look-a-like, made in the very early years of Aurora, when their design was highly influenced by US pens. In 1927 Aurora introduced the “Duplex” in Red Hard Rubber with black ends. In 1929 the celluloid Duplex was introduced in five versions and five colors. This is one of the rarer models, with its repousse clip having a floral filigree design and three cap bands. Medium, flexible nib. Slightest tinge of ambering, otherwise near mint+.
$2500

3
1920 Conklin #3 Crescent-fill in gold-filled "Hand Engraved Vine." One of the most beautiful and sought after Conklin patterns, and one of their few models with the barrel end metal covered. The locking ring in higher-relief engraving. Matching gold-filled lock-ring. Medium/fine, extra-flexible nib. The smallest mar to the cap indicia, otherwise near mint. Incredibly beautiful!
$1200

4
1918 Conklin #3 Crescent-fill in gold-filled “Art Nouveau” Pattern. Quite rare and with great eye appeal. And the bonus is its fine, triple-flexible nib! Near mint.
$1300

5
1912 Montblanc Sub-brand #2 Safety eyedropper-fill in Red Mottled Hard Rubber. Pictured in BHR in Collectible Stars Vol. I, p. 80. Only barrel identification is “2F” on the turning knob and the “M in Circle” logo on the nib (broad, oblique, flexible – shaped like left foot). Cap-top set off with a white casein band (one split in band from shrinkage). RMHR Montblancs are extremely rare! Near mint.
$1500

6
1938 Montblanc K124 Meisterstuck BF in Ivory & Pearl. One of the rarest Montblancs, sought after by all serious collectors. Two-toned fine nib. GFT. Near mint.
$4000

7
1955 Montblanc 149 PIF in Celluloid. Early production, while Montblanc pens were still being hand made by master machinists (prior to the introduction of injection molded ‘Precious Resin’). Outer two cap bands are sterling silver, otherwise GFT. Visualated barrel window with vertical lines (some wear). Three-tone 14C nib with a tad of flex. A few minor scratches and dings to the barrel lacquer and brassing to the band at the barrel turning knob. Excellent+.
$1500

8
1938 Omas Lucens Medium plunger-fill in Red Pearl Marble. GFT. Rollerball clip. Fine, extra-flexible nib. A little wear to the barrel imprint (fully readable), otherwise near mint.
$1750

9
1946 Parker 51 Vacumatic-fill set in Black with 14K “Fish Scale” (Barley) caps, and 14K clips and pencil nozzle. Very rare, and very beautiful! Medium nib. Just the tiniest wear to the barrel imprint below the clutch band (easily and fully readable), otherwise near mint+ in original box. Photo of set in box.
$2000

11
1909 Parker “Red Giant” eyedropper-fill in Cardinal Hard Rubber. Certainly one of the rarest Parker’s around, and far, far rarer than the “Black Giant,” whose cap was brittle, but nowhere as brittle as the cap on the Red Giant. The following is from an in-house Parker newsletter, "It’s so big and startling we will guarantee a broad smile from You when You see it. It is made entirely of maroon rubber, fitted with a No. 10 pen, and the price will be $10. … We will be ready to fill orders about February 10." Very nice Parker “Lucky Curve” banner barrel imprint. Manufactured both with and without a “RED Giant” imprint on the cap. This example is without. The cap and barrel colors are not an exact match because the cap was recently made from actual Parker Pen Company vintage red hard rubber stock. The pens’ price has been adjusted accordingly. Near mint with no signs of ink. So rare you’ll probably never find another one – cap or barrel! Broad flexible italic nib.
$3000

12
1913 Parker 28 Jack Knife Safety BF in Black Hard Rubber. NPT. The largest size in which Parker manufactured this series. Rare as hen’s teeth due to the few made and the very high breakage rate due to the very fragile cap lip. Medium, extra-flexible nib. Nice, deep cap imprint. A tad of wear to the center of the barrel imprint and a couple of scuffs to the blind cap, otherwise near mint.
$1000

13
1929 Pelikan First-Year piston-fill pen, usually called a Model 100, but actually had no model number at all until 1930. Very rare! Characteristics include a straight-sided inner cap, no cap bands, Bakelite barrel, long-slender gripping section, and nib with a heart shaped vent hole (broad, italic, flexible). Very minor discoloration of the jade binde (usually found much darker), otherwise near mint. A wonderful addition to anyone’s Pelikan collection.
$2700

14
1910 Waterman Unusual filling mechanism. (5)12 SF “Sleeve-filler” in 14K Solid Gold “Filigree” pattern on black hard rubber. In-between the "Pump-filler" and "Coin-filler" Waterman produced the Sleeve-filler in 1910. A sleeve on the barrel slides downward to reveal a press bar used to fill the pen. A rare and wonderful example of this early Waterman filling mechanism. Barrel indicia engraved in Old-English script “TBM.” Broad, flexible, italic nib. A hint of barrel ambering and inspection under a loop reveals minor scratches here and there, otherwise near mint+
$2200

15
1920 Waterman Prohibition Flask! Extremely rare is an understatement! Made to look exactly like the Model 20 Safety pen (the largest pen in Waterman’s model line at the time). Allowed folks to carry booze without being suspected of breaking the law. Complete with perfect barrel imprints and G/F pocket clip. Wonderfully rare and collectible! New-old-stock. Mint.
$3200

16

A mock pen, used for window displays, so a sellable pen would not get ruined by the heat, sunlight, etc. The pen is either painted black or heavily coated in clear sealant, so it would not discolor from the elements while on display. The cap can go onto the top or bottom. The nib is signed "14K Gold Plate." The lock ring doesn’t turn. The very bottom of the pen is configured as a "V," perhaps to lock the pen in place so it can’t turn and ruin the display. A wonderful piece of ephemera!

Scripto "Pussycat" Ball Pen Counter Display with (12) Pens

255
1966 Scripto Twelve (12) Scripto “Pussycat Pens” button-activated Ball Pens in plastic with Chrome Trim. This is a point of purchase counter-top display containing 12 Scripto “Pussycat Pens” from 1966 or 1967 in various color combinations, all mint-in-the-box. Scripto was no doubt hooking onto the popularity of the “Pussycat” theme made so popular and hip by the 1965 film, “What’s New Pussycat?” along with the Pink Panther movies, cartoons and comics. Scripto trademarked (Serial No. 72246375) the term “PUSSYCAT” under the category of “Goods and Services: BALL POINT PENS” on 5/23/66. The trademark expired on 5/28/87, and since then could be used by anyone. Advertising for the Scripto Pussycat Pens was very likely widespread. I’ve found mentions of comic book (inside back cover), newspaper and radio advertising. Scripto started in Atlanta, GA as the M. A. Ferst Company in 1923, a major supplier of graphite leads, quickly adding mechanical pencils. In 1924 the name changed to Scripto, Latin for "I write." In 1955 they started selling refillable butane lighters called the "Vu-Lighter". In 1957 they acquired Anja Engineering Corporation, an international writing instrument supplier. Some other interesting history. In 1964 Scripto faced a major labor strike, in which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the So. Christian Leadership Conference participated. Scripto’s president, James V. Carmichael, negotiated with the International Chemical Workers Union, Local 754, resolving the strike and reaching a settlement. While we think of Parker’s “Liquid Lead” as the introduction of graphite suspended in a liquid, Scripto actually introduced it many months earlier, to Parker’s chagrin! Erasable “Fluidlead” was developed by chemist Fran Seech (who escaped to Los Angeles from Nazi-occupied France). Parker and Scripto eventually agreed to share the formula, with Scripto now being able to also call it by Parker’s trademark name, “Liquid Lead.” Seech was also famous for inventing the first successful ball pen ink in 1949, the formula for which he sold to Patrick Frawley, Jr., who used it in the ballpen he introduced in 1950, the Papermate! Scripto sold lots of ball pens and had a variety of models, all designed for mass appeal, including Pussycat, Feathertone, Satellite, Prestige, Escort, Action, T210 and others. The Pussycat uses a transparent plastic refill covered by US Patent 2678634. You will probably want to keep this as a collectible, but if you do want to use the pens, I had no trouble using a Fisher metal 1-for-All refill. New-old-stock. Mint. Close-up of display.
