Just in this group of pens.

Montblanc, Watermann, Cross, Parker, Tiffany, and one is a pencil "25 Anniversary - 1898 - 1923" has Elks logo on cap

Anyone know of a good reference site?

I've collected and repaired vintage fountains pens for about 30 years... that's how I got started in watches. Fountain pen collecting is big, big, big. The pencils are a somewhat smaller collecting subset.

The Montblanc looks fairly new. There are lots of fakes of these.

The black Waterman is from the Le Man Opera series which came out in the 1980s I think.

Don't know about the Tiffany ones. Tiffany usually made the outer shell in some sort of precious metal but the mechanical innards would have been made by one of the pen/pencil makers.

The silver checkerboard design Parker has been in production since the 1960s, although yours looks more recent maybe.

Look for a makers name on the Elks one, they are usually marked near the top. Yours looks like an Eversharp.

cool info.

the pencil is marked with Superite 'Silver Pat'

How would I tell if the Montblanc were a fake? It does have a Montblanc cartridge in it...

Actually, I did used to have a tiny vintage fountain pen collection — I received a few after my grandmother passed years ago and became interested.

I have the collecting (hoarding?) gene, I guess. Over the years I have collected deco to Mid-Century barware/housewares, vintage posters, and vintage catalin/bakelite radios — bought out an entire barn full of them once from Marty Bunis, the guy who wrote several collecting guides on these.

I think it may all have started with my David Cassidy collection. . . Image

There do seem to be quite a few people who are into both pens and watches. (A particularly notable one was the late, great collector and historian L. Michael Fultz, of Parker pen and Illinois watch fame.)
