9415: Conklin 10 Special: black hard rubber #1-size slip-cap crescent-filler, 12.9 cm long, nickel plated trim, imprints clear and strong; a rare and elusive model, to our knowledge not documented in any surviving catalog or advertisement -- many Conklin collectors are not even aware that Conklin made a #1-size pen.
8085: Conklin 10 Special: black hard rubber #1-size slip-cap crescent-filler, 12.9 cm long, nickel plated trim, imprints worn but mostly legible, replacement #2 warranted nib, even fading to hard rubber with the shadow on the cap of a slip-on clip; a rare and elusive model -- many Conklin collectors are not even aware that Conklin made a #1-size pen.
9635: Conklin 2: black hard rubber slip-cap crescent-filler, gold filled trefoil filigree overlay, 12.8 cm long; very clean early pen, narrow feed, teardrop vent hole in nib, unmarked crescent; only significant flaws are tool marks on the crescent and a crack in the hard rubber at the very top of the cap -- otherwise near mint.
9550: Conklin 318: rare early black chased hard rubber straight-cap crescent-filler, 14 cm long, gold filled trim, good imprints and chasing, narrow straight feed, heart-vent nib, crescent marked on one side; hairline in lower part of cap has been sleeved with fresh hard rubber (see detail), looks like a scratch.
10175: Conklin P34: uncommon vest-pocket clipless crescent-filler in mottled hard rubber, 11 cm long, gold filled trim; model number denotes a #4-size pen with a #3 nib. Color good, imprints worn but mostly legible, nib tipping is partially missing on one side, nib can be used but is very scratchy; two small burn divots, one on barrel, one near cap lip, cap mouth has been internally sleeved to repair a lip hairline, which is now nearly invisible without magnification.
5659: Conklin dummy pens: black-painted wood replicas of crescent-fillers, used for window displays instead of real pens so as to avoid risk of theft and of fading by sunlight; one looks like a capped pen, 13.7 cm long, the other an uncapped pen, lacking nib and feed; much scarcer than the actual pens, and much less common than dummy pens by makers such as Waterman, these display models are also sought after by collectors of advertising, country store items, and folk art.
10507: Conklin 2: black hard rubber crescent-filler with sinous Art Nouveau gold filled filigree overlay, 10.8 cm long; early "PAT. PENDING" clip imprint, "2" imprint on posting end, name on indicia, #2 Conklin nib is a smooth writer with considerable line width variation.
9231: Conklin 2: black hard rubber crescent-filler with sinous Art Nouveau gold filled filigree overlay, 13.9 cm long; only slight fading to rubber, "2" imprint on posting end, small repair to filigree (see detail); #2 Conklin nib gives nice but limited line width variation.
9966: Conklin 4: uncommon large black hard rubber crescent-filler with gold filled trefoil filigree overlay, 13.6 cm long, unusually good condition with glossy black hard rubber, very minimal plating wear; #4 nib provides restrained line width variation. Significantly larger than the more common #2 and #3-size pens, with a significantly thicker barrel, 1.2 cm wide.
8590: Conklin 75: oversize black chased hard rubber crescent-filler, 14.35 cm long, gold filled trim, largest model offered; crisp and glossy, bold imprints, no brassing, barely used, came to us with original hardened sac intact; sealed hairline in cap lip is barely visible (see detail) and stable -- lip is not stressed when cap is posted, since barrel end seats on threads, 11mm inside.
7815: Conklin 40P: black chased hard rubber flat-top vest-pocket crescent-filler, 11.25 cm long, gold filled trim, unusual single narrow cap band, has a #5 nib though should carry a #4; new old stock with price band, has not been resacked or otherwise restored, hard rubber crisp but sun-faded, pen appears to have been dipped, light scratch marks at end of barrel.
6864: Conklin demonstrator: rare black chased hard rubber cutaway #20 crescent-filler, 13.6 cm long, gold filled trim, crisp and glossy, hole for clip on back of cap, but appears never to have been installed (ditto for the nib and feed, as is typical for this sort of demonstrator pen); original hardened sac has been left intact.
7261: Conklin Endura: oversize woodgrain hard rubber flat-top lever-filler, 13.5 cm long, gold filled trim, big Endura nib; barrel imprint is worn but mostly legible, section is black hard rubber, not woodgrain -- probably an old replacement.
9416: Conklin Endura Senior set: oversize woodgrain hard rubber lever-filler, 13.45 cm long, gold filled trim, no brassing, barrel imprint worn but mostly legible; with matching but smaller (12.25 cm long) Endura pencil, uses 1.1 mm lead, both pen and pencil have same name on barrels, pencil shows more use.
7829: Conklin paper knife: laminated celluloid, 22.2 cm long, imprinted "COMPLIMENTS OF THE CONKLIN PEN CO."; side panels are the same distinctive mottled green used for Conklin pens, tip of blade has been chipped and smoothed.
10787: Conklin crescent-filler: unusual and uncommon late production example in black chased celluloid, with black hard rubber section and lock ring; 10.6 cm long, gold filled trim, imprints and chasing strong, noting a weak patch between the clip and the cap mouth (see details). #3 Conklin nib appears to be earlier production, has a small hairline from the vent hole which should be stable if nib not overflexed.
9540: Conklin Nozac: beautiful red and silver pearl facetted piston-filler, 13.25 cm long, 5000-word Word Gauge; fine barrel transparency, good imprints, name lightly imprinted, cap lip hairline professionally and virtually invisibly sealed; seals replaced, a smooth writer.
10856: Conklin Endura Symetrik: rare oversize lever-filler in brown pearl, 14.1 cm long, gold filled trim, massive Endura nib, Toledo barrel imprint; fine color and appearance, noting trim brassing.
