Metal Overlay Button Filler
ha42 ha42 

sb464 - Not a very fancy pen, this looks like it's an aluminum or nickel plated overlay.  Nice size and weight: 4 3/4", 120 mm. The nib is an obviously substituted Esterbrook 9128  Flexible Extra Fine steel nib. Button filler.  Good condition - some metal wear, especially of the cap.

Gold Striated Miller
ha42 ha42 

sb447 - This is a beautiful Danish Miller.  Miller was made for a stationery story in Denmark by the same manufacturer as Hoover and London. Similar is style to a Sheaffer Balance, but with more rounded ends, it's an aerometric filler.  The nib is 14 Kt and somewhere between a fine and medium.   5 3/8", 135 mm. 

Price: $135 inclusive of free shipping in the US

Hoover Pen & Pencil set
ha42 ha42 

sb439 - A very practical Danish Hoover pen and pencil set. The Pen is a model 884 and it still has a stenciled price on it.  There's some brassing to the cap band. The nib is a replacement - a Scripto steel nib with an XF point. The pencil is a model 880, and the gray colors match.  The pen is a piston filler and fills well with water.   Pen: 5 3/8", 135 mm.

vertirgre vertirgre

This Conklin Endura in Sapphire is a classic.  It's the medium size.  Gorgeous color. Lever filler.  The nib is a flexible fine.  There's brassing of the band and the end of the clips, but the condition is otherwise excellent, with no flaws in the plastic. Imprints are perfect. Pen 4 7/8", 123 mm.

Hoover Deluxe
ha42 ha42 

sb461 - This Hoover looks like it was made of the same celluloid as a Parker Vacumatic. Hoover's were Danish and probably made by Olsen. This one has a medium Warranted 14 Ct nib with oodles of flex. Very small embossed name "C Bunk". Good Hoover Deluxe imprint. Very little wear. 5 3/8", 136 mm.

Price: $125 inclusive of free shipping in the US - SOLD

Royal - Flex nib

ha42 ha42 

sb495 - This is a "no name" of sorts, but the quality is much better than usual for non-brand name pens. The Miller nib is probably a clue. I suspect this was made by the same Danish firm that made MIllers and Hoovers. Can't be certain - but it's a good bet. In the meantime, it's *gorgeous*! Button filler.  Fine flex 14 kt Miller nib.    5 1/8", 133 mm.

Price: $125 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Regina the Pen
ha42 ha42

SB389 - Digging around found that Regina was a German pen company, as opposed to someone's daughter.  Some brassing to the cap bands & clip. Button filler. The nib is a 14 Kt Warranted Fine/XF.  There was some bowing to the nib when I took the photo. That's been repaired and a new sac installed.   5 3/8", 135 mm.

Price: $80 inclusive of free shipping in the US Price Reduced: $70 SOLD

 
Gray Striated Hoover DeLuxe
ha42 ha42 

sb454 - This is a very attractive, almost new Hoover DeLuxe. Excellent imprint. It's a button filler with a fine 1st Quality 14 Kt.  nib - non-branded nibs were typical for Hoovers. Nice size: 5 5/8", 145 mm.

Price: $140 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Marbled Vac-like Miller 698
ha42 ha42 

sb451 - Some people don't like engraved names on their pens. This gorgeous pen has one: Valdemar E. Reinmark.  The pen has a filling mechanism similar to a Vac, although the button system is different. Millers were made in Denmark, and stylistically this looks like it should be from the 30s. 14 Kt fine Miller nib.  Gray-green in color. 5 1/16", 128 mm. 

Price: $130 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Green Marbled Miller 698
ha42 ha42 

sb452 - This is a beautiful Danish Miller.  Miller was made for a stationery story in Denmark by the same manufacturer as Hoover and London (Perhaps Mertz & Krel).  This one is faceted and has a pretty cap band similar to Waterman Patricians (although the pens is smaller).  The pen uses a Vacumatic-like filler system that's unique to Miller. The nib is 14 Kt and a rigid fine.   5 1/16", 127 mm.  The condition is very good, with a few minor teeth marks on the blind cap.

Price: $150 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Old Chap/ Stylochap

ha42 ha42ha42 

Pen2036 - Something of an oddity, this Stylochap pen was made in France.  The clip, which is fairly worn, says "Old Chap".  The pen comes in a box and a leather carrying case. The clip has some brassing and two scratches, visible above. The plastic and lever are clean.  The box and leather case look new. Papers included in the box with directions in French. Fine 18 Kt nib.   5 1/8", 132 mm.

Price: $100 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Bohler Set

ha42 ha42 

sb492 - A small but attractive pen and pencil set. The pen cap is a little richer brown than the pencil, and both are labelled "Original Bohler". The 14 Kt nib is fine and has a little flex. The pen is a piston filler, and the pencil is propelled by the cap button.  The pen has good transparency. The look is Pelikan, but the pens aren't!.  Pen: 4 7/8", 122 mm.

Price: $135 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Oversize Penol & Case
ha42 ha42 

sb429 - This is an attractive oversize black Penol with a fine-medium 14Kt nib and pretty leather case. It's oversize in width, not length. From Denmark. Piston filler. There is a chip in the turning knob that's underneath the blind cap, and the cap bands are a bit loose.   5 3/16", 123 mm. 

Price: $130 inclusive of free shipping in the US Price Reduced $100 SOLD

Nearly New Peerless
ha42 ha42 

Peerless pens had an usual system for threading the caps. The section threads are below the grip and adjacent to the nib.  It works, but it wasn't common.  This pen is nearly new looking. There's some desk wear, but it still has it's label.  The nib is a stiff 14 Kt Warrented fine. Not a fancy pen, but a nice piece of history.  5 5/8", 133 mm.

Price: $90 inclusive of free shipping in the US - PRICE REDUCED $45 SOLD

Faber-Castell 883 - Flex Nib
ha42 ha42 

SB399 - Beautiful Faber-Castell 883 in a green striated pattern.  A lovely pen.  Piston filler.  Good transparency to the barrel, which has a "Conta" imprint. The nib is an F with nice flex to it, although the barrel says it should be a "B". Little to no wear.  5", 127 mm.

Price: $250 inclusive of free shipping in the US  PRICE REDUCED - $175 SOLD

Green Marbled Miller 658
ha42 ha42 

sb458 - This is a another beautiful Danish Miller.  Miller was made for a stationery story in Denmark by the same manufacturer as Hoover and London (Perhaps Mertz & Krel).  This one is faceted and has a pretty cap band similar to Waterman Patricians (although the pens is smaller). The main problem with this pen is substitute or engraved clip that looks very appropriate.  The pen uses a Vacumatic-like filler system that's unique to Miller. The nib is 14 Kt and a soft medium.   5 1/16", 127 mm.  Other than the clip, the condition is excellent - a really pretty pen.

Price: $130 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Bankier - Flex nib
ha42 ha42ha42 

sb465 - I have no knowledge of who Bankier really is, but this is a well made piston filler that looks like it should be German.  Nice and flexible two-tone 14 Kt fine nib. Comes with an attractive leather/leather-look case.  5 1/4" and 132mm. Excellent condition, although the palladium plating on the nib is a bit irregular. An ideal regular user for someone who likes flex nibs.

Price: $150 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Big Ben - Flex Nib
ha42 ha42 

sb470 - Big Bens are Danish. This one is in gorgeous condition with good transparency to the visualated portion of the barrel.  It's a piston filler. While the condition is nearly perfect, and the green color gorgeous, the real bonus is the fine flex nib - it's fun! 5", 127 mm.

Price: $125 inclusive of free shipping in the US SOLD

Green Striated Hoover in Box
