I believe your brushed chrome Sheaffer is a 2444 from the 1990s. If it has a long inlaid nib, it's the 2444; a short arrowhead or "dunce cap" inlaid nib means it's a 444 from the 1970s-1980s. The cap clip looks longer than my 444, though, so my money is on a 2444.

A lot of these are Noodler's pens (my favorite brand). There is a Pilot Custom 823 (my favorite pen), a Cross Century, some TWSBIs, a Parker, a Pelikan, two Sailors, and two Chinese pens.

That glass dip pen is beautiful. 

 

Also, adore that blue quill. I see a lot of whites and blacks, but not patterned ones. The nib looks gorgeous too!

What a beautiful collection. How long did it take for you to find all those pens and hopefully service them to working condition?

 

 

here's some of mine, and most of the rest you can find in my signature wink.gif

hi, this is my tiny collection (with just one fountain pen)  :). I just love the older Rotring 600 / Newton pens. I fell in love with those the first time i saw one on a picture in the internet next to a BRAUN DESIGN watch (6 months ago). It was damn hard to get these "axes" for reasonable prices but i had a lucky hand.

My Parker 45 family.

 

 

You really do have a lot of Parker's! Although my favourite has to be the Vector that looks like it came out from the A to Z.

 

Here are some of my pens: 

 

DSC_0259_zps6bad6403.jpg?t=1371094407 My MB, two Preppies, Plaisir, and a Lamy Safari demonstrator.

 

DSC_0261_zps86a9c943.jpg?t=1371094457 Just finished writing notes. 

 

DSC_0263_zps6b2f8531.jpg?t=1371094505 This pen saw a little more use while my mate and I were away from each other. 

 

Pens tell a story of their own, don't they?
