Esterbrook J, Dollar, or SM Deluxe pens are really decent, you can find them restored from Anderson Pens, and Peyton Street Pens to name a few places. 9668 or 2668 nibs are their classic medium nib, while 9556 or 2556 would be a solid fine nib
Sheaffer Imperial II Deluxe, these have incredibly smooth nibs, and their fine or medium would be neither to fine, or broad, you can find new old stock from Peyton Street Pens. Because you want to write with it, I would ask to have the sac replaced before shipping, as even an intact sac that's 50+ years old, can easily fail after a few fills. These pens make fixing the sac as easy as it can be, but it's nice not to have to worry from their first use.
Twsbi Eco is a great pen for the price, far better quality than many piston fillers from China, or India selling for a similar price, holds tons of ink, has a variety of nibs to choose from.
Pilot Metro/MR is a steal for a quality reliable fountain pen. Always starts, and I never have to worry about it when writing.
FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper!
