    Parker Premier 18K Presidential

    Hi, This is a Parker Premier 18K gold fountain pen that I recently acquired. It has been in the box for a long time and the body and cap looks like they could be polished up a little bit. Should I have someone clean it up or just leave it as is? Any advice or information would be appreciated. Thanks, IKWarren
  2. I was wondering if you guys knew about a pen, vintage or modern, that was under around 80 dollars that had a soft or semi flex nib? I wanted to get a good everyday writer before jumping to a Lamy 2000, Namiki Falcon, or any other flagship model.
  3. Just looking for some info about this dip pen my grandmother gave me a while back. I was going to use it for drawing lettering for fun. I know its an Aikin and Lambert no6 Pen. The number 6 is on both the pen and the nib. Thank you for reading my post and I hope to see some informative replies.

  4. Hello to all! I never new that pens were so collectible! I have a vintage Cross pen that I was going to sell for scrap tomorrow, can someone please tell me if I'm making a big mistake? I have knowledge of many antiques and other collectible items, but not pens??
  5. Are all gold Sheaffer Imperial Sovereigns vermeil? Gold layer on top of silver? Mine is gold finish with diamond/hatch pattern stamped only "Sheaffer (crown) USA-D.L." on the cap band - and has 14k inlaid nib and converter, with no reference to barrel/cap metal content. Can I safely assume vermeil?
  6. I inherited a gold fountain pen from my father - it may have belonged to his father. It may be what I think is called an "eye dropper ink loader". It has written on the top part of the case " WATERMAN'S IDEAL 18. KR.". On the lower part of the case in a different font, " Fonte Bracca ". Can you help me to learn about this mint condition, beautiful pen ? Thank you.
  7. Still missing : solid white gold/platinum, one dark kind of exotic wood, arlecchino club, pearl grey.
  8. Dear all, I've recently remember how much of a engineering marvel the Sheaffer snorkel is. After finding my pen I noticed how the gold plating on the cap, both on the clip and wide cap ring was fading considerably to a brass like finish. Would anyone know how to restore the finish of the gold back to its original luster? Thanks, Badger
  9. First off, my apology for adding yet another "is this fake" topic. The MB pen in question is a 18k Boheme Solitaire Gold Citrine with grid pattern that is listed on Ebay. I would like an advice if the boheme gold came in a grid design. I tried google as well as searching the FPN forum and nothing came up. (Well, google came up with other Ebay listing--which is not helpful at all.) The link below to the Ebay item: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=370797221001 Any MB collectors out there own such type of pen in grid pattern, or is it just another creative product of the coun
  10. Hey guys, i have come across this pen and the seller nor do I, have an idea about this pen. It has an eversharp 14k gold nib on the top, and some kind of ring top fountain pen maybe? anyways, i would like your expertise on the topic. Pics below.
  11. Hello, I'm looking for a replacement nib for my Sheaffer Targa 1003 (full size) gold finish. I imagine these are pretty hard to find but I thought I'd see if anyone at fpn has one, or knows where I might find one. My ideal nib would be NOS medium, but I would be happy with lightly used.

    Parker Moderne

    I would really appreciate some advice I have a pen for sale on ebay that I have made some presumptions about based on an internet search and hope not to mislead in the advert but on the other hand dont want to sell myself short. the pen has a 14k nib says Parker Moderne made in canada on the side and has a cap at the base which unscrews, there is though nothing under the cap and I believe there should be a plug or something similar (no idea on terminology!) I am slightly confused as to whether this is a depression/ thrift pen or not. Is it correct some were made in Canada and some in t

    Sheaffer White Dot - 14K Nib Value

    I was hoping for some help (and I am not honestly using this to plug something I am selling on ebay!) I have an electoplated gold sheaffer white dot fountain pen with a 14k gold nib and have put it up for sale with no reserve. I fully understand that the scrapping of nibs is not condoned on FPN and I fully support this. On this basis I genuinly dont want anyone else to do it so what should the reserve have been set at. I will strongly consider buying it myself to prevent it going for nothing, so to speak. any advise would be most welcome regards 22johnny22
  14. I recently acquired this Aurora fountain pen. The only marking it has is the "Aurora" engraving on the cap ring. It is a relatively small pen, I paced it next to a Waterman hemisphere which I found to be the closest match in size. I haven't been able to find anything on this pen. The pen that came the closest was the aurora archivi storici but that is silver color and I think a piston filler. Can someone please help me with this.

    Smashed Pilot!

    My grandmother insisted I take my grandfather's pen. Even though, by the looks of it, it's not going to see much use at all. It's with me purely for sentimental reasons. And yet, I cannot keep hoping that some day I would be able to fix it and use. My mother has the exact same pen, but that one works wonderfully well. It's got a 14k gold nib which puts down a very fine line. I'm assuming that this model is from the 1970s. It's a Pilot of course. But I don't know which model. I was wondering if it would be possible to fix this. The nib is gone, the ink sac is all but gone, and the ink chamber
