I collect fountain pens, and I have a penchant for Pelikan and Sheaffer ones--but I do have a couple of Parkers.  That Sheaffer Targa is beautiful, and I've owned them in the past.  They write wonderfully.  I'm at work and don't have pictures, but I own a Parker Sonnet with a M italic nib, but it leaks for some reason.  Not sure I'm interested in selling anything, but thought I'd chime in here as it's one of my passions.

OP, do you like pens or are you just in the market for one?  I could talk about them all day.

That is really cool, thanks for sharing and I'm thinking about picking up the Sheaffer Targa.  Smiley

I used to have a nice collection when I was younger and I have no idea where they went, haven't seen them for ~15 years.  There are a few that remain but most of my prized pieces must have been sold or traded away so I'm in the market to pick up some.

I realize you're in the market for older models, but if you don't know about The Fountain Pen Hospital in NY, NY, check them out.  They have everything a stylophile could ever want, including vintage pens--and not just fountain pens, either.  They have all sorts of pens, and their prices aren't too bad either.

That Targa there is damn beautiful, and again I highly recommend it.  It's a great shape and they're smooth.  I'm not a big fan of inlaid nibs, either, so that says something.  What's your thing, rollerballs, ballpoints, or fountain pens?

Edit:  I won't cock up your thread any further; it's just nice to see someone interested in pens on this forum.

Just to add a little more while this thread exists,
there was a report on the radio last week stating
that "penmanship" is slowly dying out. less and less
people are actually writing because of the use of
e-mail, test messages, whatsapp etc. especially
with the younger generation who are actually using
tablets in school rather than text books etc.

sad and serious at the same time.

Wow Pharmacist, I've never seen that website.  I spent some time and went through the Fountain Pen Hospital, it's a great reference and I will be returning although it looks like they need to start accepting bitcoin!  Smiley

That makes sense aoluain, I hear they aren't even teaching cursive in some school districts.

Yes I heard that in some U.S states they are not teaching Cursive or
as we call it "Handwriting", thats the "joined up" writing instead of the
block capitals I use all the time  Cheesy

Looks much better cleaned up.  Which one is the black one, the Waterman MAESTRO?  And the dented one is the ALFRED DUNHILL?

That's correct, and I didn't include the a picture of the parker one cleaned up but if you'd like to take a look I can upload it

That would be nice to see a cleaned up image of the Parker pen.  I might pick up one or two depending on if I can get compatible ink somewhere else online.  Smiley

Sorry, just saw your response, I was side tracked by your cursive comment. lol. Anyway, here is the cleaned up cross:

You can have this one and the Sheaffer Targa for $50, and I'll include 150 ink refills for the Sheaffer also. That's with shipping included.

Sure thing, Do you have an escrow in mind? I'm happy without an escrow, you have a good enough reputation on this site for me, so I'm not picky, if you want to choose an escrow just let me know who and when, I can send it out anytime, UPS comes every day @ 3:30.

sourzombie has shipped out the two pens in question and they should be arriving sometime this weekend hopefully.  I'll post pictures here when I receive them.  Smiley

I wanted to mention, feel free to add your own WTB items here if you'd like.  I didn't see many other threads like this so I wouldn't be against other people chiming in with what writing instruments they are looking for also.

Tracking provided from sourzombie hasn't updated in 10+ days so I can safely assume the pens were not shipped out.  Still looking!  Smiley

Let's start with the majority of the Parkers, including many vintage, some still in clear case, box or cardboard-backer package
Some of then pens are a more expensive type, some are collectibles for novelty and untouched in boxes, while still others are loose. Gotta love their tape measures, too. Smiley

Please excuse the mess if any showed in the photos, I'd been working 70 hours per week until this week, and took the photos on an aged whiteboard covered in printer paper. Smiley

Very nice KeepingScore, thanks for the photos - the collection looks great!  Smiley

I'll have to do some research as a lot of them are from series I haven't seen before.
