    Old Mystery Sheaffers

    I'm still new to fountain pens, and it started with two old Sheaffers from my grandmother. However, I don't know what they are. While I'm pretty sure the teal italic is a No Nonsense, I have not the slightest clue about the red one. Anyone know for sure? Side note: is this an ebonite feed? It's got tiny lines from machining, and it has a matte "finish." The lines are hard to see in the photo. They're probably about as wide as a playing card is thick.
  2. If you have any inks that you would recommend for an expensive or a vintage fountain pen, what would it be? If you have a list of them, I would love to see that. Feel free to also say what inks you would specifically stay away from when using expensive pens. Currently I only have 2 inks, one is a black Parker Quink which I like a little bit. Not a huge fan, but if I need a black, it gets the job done. The other one is Noodler's Liberty's Elysium, which I love so very much. It's the nicest blue I have ever seen by far. However, I did notice that it stained the feed of my Metropolitan blue as well. So I decided that I would never let that happen if I were to get a more expensive or a vintage pen. More so a vintage pen because I respect vintage items and would rather not do something that will make it changed forever (I have 2 vintage saxophones that I use, I freak out even if I barely tap them against a music stand, chair, or another person's instrument). Does anyone else have this problem with Liberty's Elysium? For some reason I thought only Baystate colors had that problem. If you need to know what colors I'm particularly interested in, well, personally I prefer either a gold-brown, green, regular brown, blue-green, grey, and blue. However, I already have a blue and would like to get either a green, blue-green, brown/gold-brown, or grey. I am well aware that there is such thing as grey-greens and gold-greens as well as other combination colors, those apply to the things I wouldn't mind trying out.
  3. Hi I have 3 old English fountain pens that were given to me a while back. They've sat in my desk drawer for a few years. I've attached a photo with some call-outs and close ups. As you will see, there are 2 "Wyvern Princess" fountain pens and 1 "Onoto The Pen" I have done a few searches here and I've learned a bit about these brands, but I'm wondering if anyone has any comment on these specific models. I'm most intrigued by the Onoto, as it has a good feel and weight to it. I'd like to clean it out and see how it performs, but I'm out of my depth with an old pen like these. Any suggestions on how to clean? I don't know how the ink system works or if there is any special way to clean the pen. Is there anything I should do given the pens' age? Again, the Onoto is the main interest. What about values? Is there a way to determine what these pens are worth? Thank very much in advance.
