  1. There is a pen auction that I contributed to by sorting out the pens and helping with pricing. It may be of interest. https://www.millerandmillerauctions.com/catalog.aspx

  3. Hi! I'm thinking about buying a Parker Vacumatic from an online aution. But despite my feeble attempts at learning more about Vacumatics, I couldn't come up with an appropriate value for this piece. The seller only provided the 3 pictures below - I don't know the dimensions, nor usability of the pen. The clip is sprung and there is a shadow on the left side of the nib that made me think that maybe it's damaged. The price is now at around 20€ and will maybe go up. The question is: Do you think it's worth the current price tag and maybe a bit more? Thank you for your thoughts. h

    Salutations From San Francisco

    Hi gang! I'm not exactly new here, but I'm new in the sense that I've changed my affiliation. I formerly posted here as Director of Fine Writing Instruments for Bonhams Auctioneers. Bonhams is no longer hosting pen auctions, and I've moved on to San Francisco's PBA (Pacific Book Auction) Galleries, as Director of Pens and Comics (yes, I get to sell pens and comic books at auction for a living - dream job! ). PBA has staged over 600 rare book sales since 1992, and I'm looking forward to selling great pens there! Bonhams generally enforced a minimum low estimate of $500 for pens, and P
  5. Hi gang, I hope it's ok to make this announcement here (I formerly made similar announcements here in my Bonhams days). I was Bonhams Auctioneers' pen specialist through December of last year, when I sold over a million dollars in pens in Bonhams' final pen auction and attendant private treaty sale. Bonhams decided to stop hosting pen auctions, and now I've landed my dream job for PBA Galleries auctioneers in San Francisco, as PBA's Director of Fine Pens and Comics. My debut pen sale for PBA will be held in San Francisco on July 19th, 2018. Bidders can participate in person, online or
  6. Dear Pen Pals, I formerly posted here as Director of Fine Writing Instruments for Bonhams Auctioneers. Bonhams is no longer hosting pen auctions, and I've moved on to San Francisco's PBA (Pacific Book Auction) Galleries, as Director of Pens and Comics (yes, I get to sell pens and comic books at auction for a living - dream job! ). PBA has staged over 600 rare book sales since 1992, and I'm looking forward to selling great pens there! Bonhams generally enforced a minimum low estimate of $500 for pens, and PBA will allow me to offer pens valued at $200 and up, so our sales should ha
  7. Hello all! These questions come from my recent frustration ... basically Recently (few days ago) I tried to bid on three pens on eBay. I am a newb on eBay, and I thought it will go smoothly. I know how much specific pen is worth, I know how much I'm willing to pay and overpay (in this case). However, I lost on all bids. In the last seconds!!!! Now, since it is about vintage Waterman's pens, I consider this to be pen related topic/question. Question 1: How do you win in an auction??? It cannot be that I'm that slow. Question 2: if there is an auction going on for a pen, and there is
  8. A friend of mine who also likes fountain pens put me onto a local auction house, Scammells, some time ago. The auctions are 9am on a Monday, so were rather inconvenient because I had to go to school and my funds weren't abundant, but I graduated a bit over a month ago and I've been going each Monday. They usually have at least one pen a week and you can pick up some great bargains. I won a Parker Slimfold there about 3 weeks ago for $30 that I've been using as my daily writer since, very nice nib. My friend got himself a Montblanc of some description in new condition for $70. I rather enjoy
  9. I popped into Scammell Auctions as I usually do on a Monday since school has wrapped up. There was only one pen this week, listed in the catalogue as "Dash". I couldn't find anything on Dash pens and put a post here to see if anyone could identify it. They let me into the gallery to have a closer look and it was in fact a Dasi Pen. I have done a little bit of research and they were apparently the first Australian fountain pen manufacturers, first out of a shed and later a shop in Sydney. This appears to be mass produced, but I've located the son of one of the blokes who started it - he runs an
  10. Hi gang, It's getting to be that time again! Bonhams June 16th Fine Writing Instruments sale is just two months away, and I'd like to offer free catalogues to the first ten FPN members who send their requests to me at ivan.briggs@bonhams.com. Please include your first and last names in the email, as well as a postal address (we cannot deliver to PO Boxes). Bonhams pen catalogues are ordinarily $30 for American clients and $50 for international clients, and they are fully illustrated and intended to be useful reference works, so this is, I hope, an attractive offer. Once the catalogue is

    Inks ... And Stuff

    I won an auction on that big auction site today... 6 bottles of Aurora Black 6 bottles of Aurora Blue 4 bottles of Waterman Blue 3 bottles of Waterman Black Some Waterman cartridges Also some pen display stands, which I really wanted. Quite a few people gush about Aurora black, and now I can try some! Nobody talks about the blue, which I find odd. I'll try it too! I have Waterman blue already, but now I'll have lots. I don't have Waterman black. Lots of fun. No pun intended. If anyone particularly needs a bottle of one of those, we might work something out.
  12. i just won an auction, and there was a mysterious thirty pound jump in the bidding just before the end. Even when checking the bid history for automatic bids that gap was still there after a whole series of incremental increases. No reserve was advertised on the item. And there is another auction going on right now from this same (top-rated plus) seller in which exactly the same thing happened, and it was that same amount, thirty pounds. Incremental bidding has continued after the jump. No reserve warning on this one either. What gives? if there is a reserve, shouldn't that always be apparent?

    The Bay Of E: Volte-Face

    Well, I have to take a deep, deep breath before saying this... As I have more or less resigned myself to a non-Parker 51-fulfilled future, I decided to turn my attention to the only other vintage brand (not including Sheaffer) that appeals to me: Wahl Eversharp. Not all pens from this brand excite me, just a handful of models really - and I don't know why. I just like the look of them I guess. Anyway, after conferring with my benefactors I was given permission to put up the donated funds - originally earmarked for the will-o-the-wisp P51 - toward something else. So, over the last few days
  14. okay, i got a bit crazy again and went all in for two lots of assorted pens and pen parts in two separate auctions online. one of them, from the US, cost me next to nothing—$20 for the lot, including free shipping. the lot includes an intriguing wooden pen (no, it’s not one of those big and pricey 1980s german wooden parkers, but it does seem to have a clip and its maker took the trouble of turning the butt so that the cap should post; might be an interesting bit of folk art); and some vintage caps and barrels, and a box of pencils, nibs, etc. http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll2

    Mb Slimline

    Some years back, I treated myself to a MB Slimline to cheer myself up after losing a job. Now I would like to get a different fountain pen to use as a rembrance for this current, better time. What's the best way to sell the Mont Blanc so I can afford a Newton pen? Check ebay and see what others are going for? Any suggestions will be appreciated. I'm new to all this so bear with me while I get up to some speed.
  16. There is a *restored* Esterbrook J on eBay that ends in ~25 minutes and is currently at $8.50. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ESTERBROOK-MODEL-J-FOUNTAIN-PEN-/221339232291?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3388d8a823 I have a Copper, so I don't *need* it. Someone else might, though.
