Pen 3789 :  Wahl-Eversharp Metal Pen #-4 Nib Size. Mid 1920's $185 (reduced from $245 for flaw)
Flex Nib: Extra-Fine to Double-Broad.  Small hairline crack from venthole in nib.   SOLD

Overall Grade: Excellent

Nib condition: Exc
Threads: Perfect clarity: NA
Point: Flexible XF-through-BB Imprint: Exc Size: 5"  12.7cm
PRICE: $185
COMMENTS: In what I believe is the Check / Unique pattern, this is a relatively hefty Wahl metal pen, featuring a sweet Wahl #4 flexible nib that writes a very smooth Extra Fine line with light touch, flexing up to Double Broad with an aggressive down stroke. The flex is not that of a Waterman Pink nib, it's not "wet noodle", but requires controlled force to do its thing. Great writer.

Condition is outstanding for metal pens from the early-mid 1920s (90 year old pen). The domes and thin beads at top and bottom of pen are clean. There is no personalization on the cartouche.  There is no brassing.

I do raise question about whether the gripping section (black hard rubber) is replacement. Save for the Console pattern known to associate with a mottled HR section, I tend to believe gripping sections should be metal. I've heard some claims that rubber sections can be found. For now, I will assume the black rubber section is a replacement.  The advantage is that close ink exposure won't harm the section, as it can on metal pens.

COMMENTS: Jade Celluloid tends to discolor viciously. This 1929 Gold Seal Personal Point Wahl-Eversharp has excellent-- though not perfect-- color preservation, a  top 10% example easily. Excellent condition with no brassing, clean nib, sharp "Wahl-Eversharp" imprint at top of cap.  Barrel is imprinted, "Mid-Continental Life" neatly, as shown in the photo above. Killer Wahl-Eversharp Gold-Seal nib marked "Flexible", it is a near-medium point with a bit of stub quality (thin cross strokes) that also has a nice degree of flexibility. A superb writer, no joke.

COMMENTSSymphony replaced the vaunted Wahl Skyline, and the barrel shape channels that earlier pen.  This one is, i believe, third generation.  A pen of good quality, Symphony is somewhat underappreciated in the pendom community today.  The "707", despite the heftier model number, was entry level for the series.  This one is, i believe, third generation.The fine nib has real flex, though not "wet noodle"  The pen is  mint stickered, freshly resaced and ready to go. It is accompanied by mint pencil 1707.  I've foiund green and blue to crop up less often than Burgundy and Black, amongst Symphonies.

COMMENTS: Wahl-Eversharp offered a remarkable range of metal pens from the time of its taking over Boston Safety in 1917 through at least the late 1920's. Multiple sizes, patterns  and metals (not limited to the usual Sterling, Gold-Filled, and Solid Gold, but including White Gold-Filled and Silver-Filled and even a couple different tints to the regular Gold-Filled pens) allow one to assemble a monster collection if he so chose.  Top quality items, there is potential for he who chooses to hunt these in completist fashion, the way others hunt Vacumatic and Balance, to put together a record collection at relatively reasonable cost.  Ripple is a better pattern.  You can see the brassing at the very top of pen (the most severe portion is shown) and a smidge on the high point of the clip. No dings/dents. The rubber core of the gripping section  protrudes a smidge behind its metal overlay, where < 1 mm of metal was lost to ink exposure over the years.

COMMENTS: Wahl manufactured some truly lovely pens during the late 1930's, and Equi-Poised exemplifies that.beauty.  This is a late (relatively speaking) 'Poised, as great evolution occurred during the three-year-ish run.  Some of the plastics are chemically fragile, so that in addition to checking for cracks, one must examine for fluorescence and for frank crazing. Kashmir is... notorious. This one... pops. A clean pen overall with intact Kashmir celluloid with no chemical warning signs.

Nib condition: Excellent
Threads: Perfect clarity: NA
Point:  Flex Fine. Hits Broad+ Imprint: Exc Size: 4 7/8 " 12.4 cm PRICE: $525
COMMENTS: Stunning pen that integrates several "better" features.  The so-called tulip-clip pens are relatively uncommon, and often they are found with the clip snapped from the cap. Made in two sizes, this is the larger pen, full girth, a stubby item similar to the Personal Point military-clip pen in size.  Coral is a highly sought color and often is found heavily discolored.  Here we have great color preservation, larer size, relatively uncommon color and great condition. Oh yeah, the nib is a full (but not wet-noodle) flex that goes from a Fine+ to Broad+ in a very smooth and controlled (non-buzzy) fashion.  Hard to put this down once one starts writing with it.   Even my handwriting looks nice.  I would grade the pen Excellent+, save that at very top of the golden crown at top of cap, on side opposite cap, there is a small patch of brassing.  No brassing to those fragile cap-bands.  This one would stay in my Coral collection, save that I have one already.

Nib is keyhole style. I "believe" late Dorics (Doric ran to 1940) have these as correct finding, but clearly the nib has less value than an adjustable nib from earlier years. That's been factored in. Clean plastic, with one small scratch near butt end of pen.  This is a quite nice example of a not-so-easy-to fine pen. Sweet smooth writer, too. And, that is just dust up by the gold-seal.

COMMENTS: Equi-Poised is a highly collectable series that saw frantic evolution during its 4 year run.  This large pencil shows minimal signs of use, has no brassing and has great color. Still has some of original eraser. The celluloid shows a slight iridescence representing thin layer oxidation from going 80 years without being polish. I like finding that on old celluloid. If you want, I can give it a light modern polish (though you'll lose the oxidation effect).

COMMENTS Note, please that "Giant Bantam" is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek name. This Wahl Oxford is a long thin pen, not "giant" in the general pendom sense of the word, but is a rather large version of pen that generally is a teeny weeny thing, the Wahl Bantam.  Sharing the bulb-filler and spiral-barrel-transparency look of the Bantam, this one is a bigger version it, thus "giant".  

Barrel clarity is superb. Clean color with bit of translucence at very top of cap. I've had a few of the reds and one green. This is the first  brown pen i've found.

COMMENTSNot a little pen, the Military Clip Wahl is full #4 nib size and same diameter as the long standard pen. The short size (squat pen) and high riding clip facilitated use in military shirts (didn't wanna pop the flap). Gold Seal is on the top of the pen.  Grand condition with brass-free trim and excellent color.  The nib puts it over the top. My crude ruler puts it at about 1.3 mm stub with high flex on top of that.  Monster writer. Will try to get nib or writing sample up if i can. One of the funkiest vintage points I've had on the website in months.

COMMENTS:  This is a first-style Doric in one of the most fragile colors, Kashmir.  Most out there have crazed and fluoresced. This one is superb.  Whilst I'd expect a Gold Seal nib in a Gold Seal (unpunched) pen, this one has a non-GS nib (who knows?  Custom request at time, or later swap) that is up there with the two  2-3 most interesting nibs in this latest website update. It is a Wahl nib correct to era, just not gold-seal.  Lovely pen. Killer nib.

COMMENTS:  Symphony replaced the vaunted Wahl Skyline, and the barrel shape channels that earlier pen. The two tone metal cap enhances the eye appeal of this streamlined pen.   A pen of good quality, Symphony is somewhat underappreciated in the pendom community today. The two-tone thin-band cap marks this as the intermediate model, slotting between the lower end 707 and the upper end 703.

This one is mint, with a nominal flaw (welcome to the weirdness of pen grading). It has part of price sticker and has never met ink, but it does have a small "dimple" (ding) at very top of cap. Fills well and puts down good line on water testing. May not be returned if inked or dipped, but then it is priced, mint-with-flaw, less than most of the used Symphonies I offer.

COMMENTS:  Note, please that "Giant Bantam" is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek name. This Wahl Oxford is a long thin pen, not "giant" in the general pendom sense of the word, but is a rather large version of pen that generally is a teeny weeny thing, the Wahl Bantam.  Sharing the bulb-filler and spiral-barrel-transparency look of the Bantam, this one is a bigger version it, hence "giant".  Clean trim with excellent barrel clarity. There is a bit of translucency at the ends.  This is just the third of this sort i've had available during the last 4 years.

It has the largest nib found on Symphony.  The flex nib shows modest, easily controlled flex. It is not a "wet noodle".  This pen  is, i believe, third generation. It is  mint stickered, freshly resaced and ready to go.

This is the fat short pen, not to be confused with the wee skinny ringtop.

COMMENTSI like OS Wahl flat-tops. Often referred to as "Deco Band" due to the... deco... band, the Green/Bronze (Green/Gold, Brazilian Green) color generally features a more narrow middle-band, the "rhomboid" cap-band. The Wahl Gold Seal nib on this one is marked "Signature" for semi-flex, but to my hand seems to be a full flex. There was overlap.

This one is not quite perfect.  There is a small superficial mark about 2mm by 2mm on the barrel and a tiny (maybe 1mm)  possible  sealed hairline  vs scratch extending from the very edge of the lever slot on the barrel has been sealed.   Cap is very nice.  Figure the $250 discount should cover those two tiny marks.

COMMENTSMoire Skylines are amongst the most desirable patterns found.  Five colors, three trim styles and two sizes can be found- at least i believe all permutations can be found in all colors- allowing potentially 30 pens to be hunted.

This is a full size set in green moire. The pen is a clean one with slight edge brassing and a superb fine-med very flexible nib.  The pencil has a brassed cone and seems not to be feeding ink (probably clogged).  I'm tossing it in with the pen as it would be a shame to just throw it out.

Great Nib.

COMMENTSWahl produced tiny "Bantam" pens with # 0 nibs, bulb filler and $1 price tag.  Wahl's Oxford line generally was a second tier Wahl product, analagous to Sheaffer's WASP.  Some Oxford pens were very high quality, essentially tweaked or re-badged Wahl's proper. Others were of lower quality.  Some unusual plastics and contours appeared amongst the Oxford pens.

This one is an odd duck. A fairly large Oxford, it channels the Bantam no doubt. Dates to around the mid 1930's.  A bulb filler rests under the removable blind cap. Spiral barrel pattern with tranparency is in play.  This one grades at least Fine, with good color, clean trim and but modest barrel clarity

COMMENTSSkylines are loved or hated (gee, that narrows it down). They are the most distinctive looking pens amongst the Big-5 from this era. Many, many varieties exist. This one has a celluloid cap in a lined pattern, and packs a wide gold-filled cap-band. I cannot prove the following, but note that at a recent pen show a couple Skyline collectors labelled this one a military model, noting the cocktail of solid barrel, striped cap, solid derby and wide cap-band is what was shown in adverts to military personnel.  Idunno.

This one is prety clean. Good color and threads. Very nice writer. Trace edge brassing, particularly on the lever.

COMMENTS:   Whether the reader wishes to use the conventional "transitional Equi-Poised" moniker or favor the notion that this is  a an odd-duck semi-streamlined flat-top, this pen is a well known, uncatalogued, and scarce variant on the Wahl Personal Point Flat Top to Equi-Poised continuum.  Perhaps one of these crops up for every hundred catalogued sister variants.  Pens are known in Coral, Lapis, Brazilian Green and Black/Pearl. I would not be suprised to see Jade and Black show up too.

A few imperfections need be noted. The pen has the punched seal of a late-release  product, but has a Wahl Gold Seal nib usually seen when the seal is not punched. On other hand, the GS nib actually  is a better nib than the warranted nibs seen more commonly with punched seal.  The celluloid has good color but a hint of texture from differential aging of the green vs copper panels.  Overall nice look. Scarce, high cachet Wahl.

COMMENTS:  The 1935-1940 or so 2nd Generation Doric featured single cross-hached colors.  The pens are amongst the most beautiful  from the era- in our opinion of course.  Often plagued by subdued color, frank crazing and cracking, they are not easy to find clean. the chrome-tone trim often is trashed and does not polish up in the manner of goldfilled trim. 

Blue is- in our experience- the most difficult color, less often seen than Brown, Green, Red, Purple, Silver and Black. The box-diamond cap-band indicates a less expensive model, often found lacking the adjustable nib. The pen appears in two sizes. This one is the larger.

This pen has one flaw-  scattered light tooth marks at the blind end of the pen. Otherwise it is superb.

The point is XF and a bit scratchy.  No brassing is present but a tiny ding about 1mm in diameter is present by one of the breather holes in the cap.

COMMENTS:    Wahl made a huge variety of metal pens, mostly during the 1920's. Ranging in size from this charming and tiny pen with Wahl #0 nib (shared only with the later Wahl Bantam) up to the scarcely seen #6-nibbed model, numerous patterns and some styling evolution can be found. This one is in sharp condition, with a nice flexible nib. A charming pen.

COMMENTS:  A gem. Most of these appear in yellow goldfilled metal (pinkish yellow cast). This one appears to be green goldfilled (yellow-green cast). Obviously, a personal name is engraved in the barrel- neatly done.  The nib is stellar. A large Wahl #5 with high flex, it writes wonderfully. Just had new sac tossed in by Ron Zorn.

Pen 1502 Wahl-Eversharp Doric. "Gold Seal"
Silver Pearl cross-hatched celluloid. 2nd Generation  $355

Overall Grade: extrafine
Trim:  CLEAN

Nib condition: Exc

Threads:  Exc  Transparency:  NA Section: few scratches and ding
Point: Med Semiflex

Imprint:   Fine Size:  5.125" PRICE: $355 
COMMENTS:  The 2nd generation Doric done in cross-hatched plastic, produced roughly 1935-1940, are some of the most lovely vintage pens. This one is the second largest size, is a Gold Seal model (though of course the gold seal in this case is chrome). amd packs a large ostensibly flexible nib, though in practice it seems more semi-flex.  The pen has no trim pitting and no ambering, both nice finds in a color/trim that tends to suffer those problems. The pic shows a "spot" on the clip. That is not brassing/pitting and is gone after a light wipe down.  the lever has one tiny speck of brassing, seen in the additional pictures.  A lovely Doric whose only flaws are a few scratches in the gripping section and a slight ding at distal edge of the section. By end of August the scratches will be  removed by restorer Ron Zorn. I missed 'em during a marathon restoration session last week.   Trim has good lustre and lacks pitting often seen on white trim.

Overall Grade: Excellent Trim:  NA Color:  Superb CLICK FOR LARGER PIC

Point: Fine. Highly Flexible Imprint:   XF (one letter weak) Size:  4 3/4" by 7/16" PRICE: $275
COMMENTS:  The 1935-1940 or so 2nd Generation Doric featured single cross hatched colors.  The pens are amongst the most beautiful  from the era- in our opinion of course.  Often plagued by subdued color, frank crazing and cracking, they are not easy to find clean. the chrome-tone trim often is trashed and does not polish up in the manner of goldfilled trim. 

Blue is- in our experience- the most difficult color, less often seen than Brown, Green, Red, Purple, Silver and Black. The box-diamond cap-band indicates a less expensive model, often found lacking the adjustable nib. The pen appears in two sizes. 

This one is the smaller. It is a wee gem, resaced by El Zorno last week (clear sac). No crazing. Great trim. Lovely flexible writer.

COMMENTS:  A gorgeous early Wahl Flat-top, preceding the celluloid/personal-point era. The pen has a sweat flex nib, but the nib is from a Mabie-Todd pen. Such is life. I've tossed in a spare #2 Wahl nib in case you ever wish to make pen "correct", but it is quite nice as it is. A great writer and beautifulp en.
