I've asked the seller to send me more photos (and I will post more photos if I get the eventually) but this is the only one we have right now. The seller is not a pen person and so cannot identify.  I spot what looks like a Parker IM, a Platinum or Pilot Desk Pen, and Platinum long-short pocket pens, but the rest are unfamiliar.

 

The Long-short pens are the ones that caught my eye and my primary consideration for pursuing this sale, so any comments on quality, maintenance/restoration, specific model number, and other details will be most appreciated. Thanks!

From what I can make out from additional photos just sent to me:

 

The black desk pen is from Pilot. A DPN-70?15996191_1894770140753337_260041698_n.jpg

 

The V-Pen has a broken nib.

The hacked-up black desk pen is a Platinum. Maybe a Carbon desk pen?

The pink desk pen is a Pilot with a fingernail nib. No idea which model or vintage.

The Mickey Mouse-capped pen I'm not even sure is a fountain pen? Has a Tradio-like nib.

The tiny pen that looks like a pink Pilot Birdie was probably a competing model from Sailor?

The cream of the lot. a 22k Platinum long-short pen with a medium nib. Not sure if the gold is plating or the nib material itself. Hopefully the latter.

The other long-short pen is from Sailor.

I just realized that I don't have Sailor cartridges...

Platinum 22k huh... well that is the model number but I can't give exact reference to what style number it had if the cap says 22k then yes that is the Platinum 22K
as for the Sailor pen that looks like the Pilot Birdie it's the Sailor Recruit? however I can't be too sure if that is really the pen's name (given that Sailor made this pen for shops like Daiso I can't say production date on it either)
and the last pocket pen is a ladies' pen huh... hmmm

Thank you! I'll try to post more photos when I get the pens. The links to Estilofilos requires me to disassemble the pen though. We'll see how I manage.. I've always have difficulty disassembling inset nibs.

Update: the pen appears to be a Pentel Stylo. A disposable non-fountain pen that uses a felt/plastic tip.
