When I rekindled my love of fountain pens, I began by buying every example I could find of pens I already knew about. I pounced on some No Nonsense pens, scooped up Esterbrooks, and learned (to my surprise) that Sheaffer school pens were no longer in production, and harder to come by than I expected. I bought a dozen or so, whenever I could obtain them for a plausible price.

Now that I've discovered other pens to love (also), it's time for me to deacquisition most of my school pens.

All are liable to have spots of corrosion inside the cap, on the section, and the friction ring (photos show this clearly). I have dipped these, but not installed any cartridges; dip-testing shows all to write, with the opaque green and translucent red pens giving the smoothest, wettest lines of the group. Prices for these seem to bounce around, depending on how many have been offered how recently, and who's entering the market. I'll offer these at $10 each with CONUS shipping. Paypal preferred.

First PM with a firm "I'll buy it" will get the pen. I'll indicate pens on hold, and mark off the ones that have sold as soon as I receive payment.

SOLD! -- First, Sheaffer with a translucent red body, with rounded ends. The nib is marked "M," but the line was indistinguishable from the line written by the "F" opaque green below.

Second, a Sheaffer with an opaque black body, with the flattened-conical ends. This pen with an "F" nib wrote with a fine line.

Third, a Sheaffer with a translucent green body, conical ends (those are water droplets visible in the body; it hadn't quite dried out when I shot the picture). The "F" nib writes with a dry, fine line, with a leetle bit of tooth.

SOLD! Fourth, a Sheaffer with an opaque dark green body and severely flat ends. This "F" nib wrote with a lovely smooth, wet line.

Finally, a Scripto with tapered rounded ends, dark blue-gray body. I don't think you can easily get cartridges for this pen; I'd suggest experimenting with it as an eyedropper. It writes with a fine, dry line, and a slight problem with the nib results in definite toothiness.

If you encourage me by buying these pens, I'll probably buy more pens further along the food chain; then I'll have to sell more, so it's in your own interest to support my pen habit. Thanks for your time and attention!

I've sent you a PM asking to buy the red one.

I think I had one exactly like that back in high school. Just looking at the photo makes me nostalgic.

Monday morning bump. Call it eight dollars for each of the Sheaffers, and I'll throw in the Scripto to the first buyer who asks for it.
