A few brands that are not selling too well at this time are common pens by the likes of Bic, Pentel, Quill. These are VERY common. We do not buy them unless we must as part of a larger collection of good items.

In addition, we do not want damaged pens. Examples of pen damage include:
→ Worn or missing imprints
→ Deep surface scratches
→ Cracks, hairline or otherwise
→ Chips or gouges
→ Chew or tooth bite marks
→ Cigarette burns or chemical burns
→ Dents (in metal pens)
→ Carving
→ Warping
→ Missing parts or trim
→ Incorrect replacement parts
→ Bent levers
→ Sprung clips
→ Nib damage
→ Badly worn plating
→ Pitted trim
→ Mechanical damage

Which pens and writing instruments are worthless?

When we say we buy pens and fine writing instruments, that means we buy the high-end pieces, usually with a value of $50 and up. Not all pens have value. Most are worthless, in fact. Even ancient, antique, feather-quill pens may have little or no value. We will be happy to help you determine if you have trash...or treasure. Just contact us.
