  1. So, what do you like? I’d just like to know your opinion. I personally prefer flat ends, but tell me what you like!
  2. I have this Sheaffer Flat Top Lady with features that are difficult to explain. The pen is 4.5" long and marked "Lady" on the nib. The single tone nib and pinned lever are early 1930s Flat Top features while the humped flat ball clip suggest 1934 or later. The third line of the barrel imprint has the common "DEC 10.12-JAN. 27-OCT. 20 - NOV. 24" patent dates. The feed is flat serrated, with broad and widely spaced notches. There is no white dot on this pen. Is this a correct cap and barrel combination? The absence of the white dot seems odd.
  3. https://www.ebay.com/itm/PILOT-CUSTOM-14k-Med-Pump-fill-w-Ink-Window-Unusual-Pen-ca-1984-READ-/173901045089?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true Was following this eBay listing but the price went out of my range since I've been getting into Vacs and vintage flex lately Seems like an interesting pen though, and I'd love to know more about it if anyone has more details. I own several pens in the Pilot Custom lines, but I've never seen anything like that before.
  4. I am thinking that this Sheaffer white dot is a flat top lever filler from somewhere around 1930, plus or minus. On the barrel is: W.A. SHEAFFER PATENT AUG 25, 08 FT. MADISON IA USA DEC 10 12 - JAN 27-OCT 20 - NOV 24 14 Anything else anyone can add?
  5. Hello! I've been searching on and off for a while about a pen & pencil set I came across about 3 years back. I just found this forum and would love to figure out exactly what it is I have and hopefully some appraisal info as well.

    Cap To Something, But No Pen.

    Okay... I have somehow acquired a flat top black Sheaffer pen cap, but I've never had the pen. Can anyone tell me what is supposed to sit under this cap, please? And, how difficult is finding a pen? The ball on the clip is flat. There is a slight hump on the clip. Flat top and a single gold band.
  8. I'm a new collector, but old user of fountain pens. I've recently been intrigued by the diversity, appearance, and bang for the buck of the Chinese pens. I've bought a few Jin Hao, Wing Sung, Hero, and recently Duke pens, and was favorably impressed with practically everything I've received. A recent auction purchase arrived, and I can't find any markings except the Duke name at the base of the cap, and a hologram design on the flat top of the pen. I'm hoping you experts in this area can help me with more information, and the model number/name of the pen. It seems to be very well made, with pr

    Espey Flat Top

    An acquaintance of mine purchased an Espey fountain pen recently in a box lot. He or I haven't been able to find out much about the pen. I see where there have been a few listed and sold on eBay, as well as a few mentions here on FPN. Does anyone know anything about the history of this brand or where we might find some information concerning it? I've included two photos. One is a bit blurry, but the other is decent. Any help would be appreciated. - Grayling

    My First Flat-Top

    HI all, long time no post... Just felt the need to share. The local consignment place had an old jade flat-top sitting in their "marked down" cabinet yesterday, and so of course I took a look. It's clearly been used, but not mistreated -- brassing, some staining, color fading: I has them. But it also has a two-tone 14K lifetime nib, which was a pleasant surprise, and a sac the size of a small dirigible, though I know not to trust it and replace it before inking. No cracking or bulging, and a few mysterious rust-colored deposits adhering to the outer barrel and cap that wipe away with some ge

    Family Heirloom Info Requested

    My wife's father passed just about 25 years ago. In a box of 'stuff' that one of his daughters kept, this pen turned up. (see below for images) I took it apart, replaced the sac, and put it into working order. It is priceless to my wife; being able to hold the same pen that her father used working a milk truck delivery route in Pittsburgh, Pa in the pre-WW-II time frame is very special to her. I seek a little more information. From research I have done, I have determined that it is a jade Lifetime Flat Top White Dot. According to an article on Pen Trace that I found, the clip puts it som
