Early Parker #9 Dropper Filled Fountain Pen Wavy Pattern & Dual Bands

This is an important historical fountain pen

The imprint and chasing is worn, but visible. The imprint may have been heated because of the raised look.

Early Rounded Bottom Parkers were not imprinted with numbers on them [these were earlier than the Flat Bottom Parkers] 

Earliest known Patent Date 1894

Lucky Curve Feeder is complete and correct

Nib is incorrect...Blackbird Flexible #4. The correct nib would most likely be a #3 Parker Lucky Curve Keyhole.

Length: 5-3/4 inches

Waterman #12 Red & Black Mottled Dropper Filled with Original Price Stickers

Semi-flex original #2 Waterman nib...looks unused, however there appears to be very slight amount of dried ink on the underside of the nib..but can't be sure. Maybe it was dipped. I really can't imagine anyone would write with this pen without removing the original pricing stickers.

Barrel has less red marbling than the cap, although I'm certain both started out life together and have remained faithful all these years.

Barrel patent date is 1903, however the pocket clip is 1905, so I assume this pen was produced in 1905, or not more than 1910. Pen is easily more than 100 years old...a true antique.

Parker #24-1/2 BCHR Dropper Filled Fountain Pen Large Flexible #4 Nib

One of the best examples I've seen of this near mint rare pen

From the two holes in the cap it appears there may have been a pocket clip at one time, or an attempt to install one that was aborted...or?

The large #4 flexible nib is original

The Lucky Curve Feeder is completely intact and has not been cut off by a repairman.

Very crisp barrel imprints. Really nice piece for any collection and at least 100 years old...a true antique.

Circa: 1910s

Special Sailor Fountain Pen

This 21karat gold nib was produced by the legendary master nib designer Nobuyoshi Nagahara. The nib is called the Cross Emperor.

Mr. Nagahara personally oversaw and directed the design process of Sailor’s unique nibs.

It appears that the barrel end knob has been lost, or broken off.

Not sure what's that about. When the section is unscrewed, it looks like an international convertor can be attached to provide a continuous ink supply. 

The nib is stamped from point to base:
