  1. I have bought a lot Eversharp mechanical pencils. And I think one is a "Coronet" pencil. It looks like silver (or rhodium) plated. The imprint reads simply "EVERSHARP" and "MADE IN USA". Another one is gold filled and is a propelling pencil. It is "made in England". Can anyone give me more information please?
  2. I was aware that the clear sections of the Coronet were temperamental, but I wasnt aware that the ends were subject to decomposition. Has anyone come across this issue? I have searched the forum, but didnt find any information. As with all pens that degrade, there may be no hope 😭😢
  3. I have a few of the "Gold is BACK/Gold Filled pens" which are collectively known as "Coronet" pens/pencils. I finally got my hands on an actual jewelry store Coronet four days ago. My best guess is that it was the model 17730 pen which is described in some of the surviving advertisements from that era. The ads were black and white, so some things are uncertain. It is the Gold filled cap with the square Pyralin accents with the black celluloid (Pyralin) body with the transparent ink view window. It had the self-fitting-point (the adjustable nib with the silver colored slider block) for adjusting flex. Another indicator the Jewelry Store version is the Gold cap at the butt end of the barrel. Also note the curved wicking element sticking out of the section (which indicates range of years of production). These are similar to the part used on another well-known brand of pen. It was MUCH easier to get apart than the all metal version of the pen. I almost felt dirty it was so easy. The pen was disassembled, cleaned, the #18 sac was replaced, shellac cured, and re-assembled. The section fit firmly, but without the trauma of it being shrunk celluloid over un-shrunk Hard Rubber. The nib flexes to about 2.25mm, which is about on par with other examples of the self-fitting-point pens which are out there. The view window has darkened to a deep amber, but shows no sign of cracking or crazing. I will have to do some light plating work on the common wear points on the pen, but that is to be expected. Step one is always to get the pen mechanically sound, before you work on the pretty stuff. I am just glad I won't have to engrave obliterated (worn) lines first, that is tedious work. Four pictures... 1. as it was advertised, 2. once mostly disassembled, 3. Sac replaced and the shellac curing before assembly, 4. assembled, filled, and with some test writing with the pen.
  4. Wahl aficionados, I recently got a Wahl Gold Filled Pen, frequently referred to as a "Coronet" (67S97), which is in the process of restoral. Step one is always inventory, followed by disassembly. I was actually surprised to learn that I was not the first person in the pen. The dried out sac was clearly labelled Esterbrook. I managed to pull the splined assembly out of the body without cracking the ink view portion (yeah! take the minor wins). Now I want to remove the section out of the splined ink view portion. I have pictures below. One of them is a zoom of the nib, section and splined ink view part. In the zoomed picture, There is an arrow drawn where I believe the joint for separating is located. Could someone confirm it for me? I am unsure if it is a press fit, or a screw-in fit. If someone know the answers to these two questions, it would be a great help. There have been so many of these all metal Coronet pens ruined during repair, that I don't want mine to join the scrap pile with it's brothers.

    Parker 45 Coronet Set

    Happy days - today's post brought me the final pen that I needed to complete my set of Parker 45 Coronets http://pencollect.co.uk/personal/23.jpg The Coronets were introduced in around 1967 and featured a colored anodized aluminum body, a wider clutch ring then the regular 45 Flighters and a unique marking among the 45 family where the Parker logo is inscribed in line with the clip. Less easy to notice, they tend to be 1mm shorter in length then the 45 Flighter and are lighter in weight. Colors are Red, Blue, Grey, Green, Brown (often called Orange) and Black.
