Vintage Doufold/big Red



Recommended Posts

Hi all:

 

I am a bit new here and not sure of were to go so I thought I might put a question out there.

 

I am interested in a Doufold for my first vintage pen.

 

I was wondering if eBay is the best place. I was also wondering what an older pen might cost.

 

Am I in the $200.00 range?

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

Anyone like Ray Bradbury? Please read "The Laurel and Hardy Love Affair" if you have about 12 minutes.

 

You will not forget this wonderful gem that is largely obscure and sadly, forgotten. http://bit.ly/1DZtL4g

My suggestions :

 

1. Do your research on the Duofold and choose the one you want - single band, double band, 1920s or the 1930s streamline. The link below may help:

(I made the mistake of rushing in early to buy on eBay and ended buying the streamline duofold whereas I preferred the earlier 1928 model)

 

2. Check out the good Parker sellers like five star pens (no affiliations)

 

3. IMO $200 sounds a fair value, but I have seen pens go for more than $500 also (especially single band ones with flex nibs)

 

All the best
