More information about vintage pens and pencils

You can sell us old writing instruments including ink pens, propelling pencils, even if they are broken or in less than perfect condition.

The oldest writing instruments tended to be styluses which were used to scratch words into clay, stone or wax tablets.

We didn't have anything close to the pens and pencils we have today until the reed pen was invented in 4BCE by the Egyptians. The first pencil wasn't invented until 1500CE.

You can sell old fashioned pens and pencils in any condition, even with broken nibs or leaky ink sacs.

We buy old fountain pens, old ink wells, boxed pens, propelling and mechanical pencils, pens named after animals, boxed pens, old Parker pens, old calligraphy pens, ink fillers, lever filler pens, cedar holders, slide and screw pencils, miniature mechanical pencils, any Art Deco and Art Nouveau designs, any pre 1950's pencils and pens with advertisers' slogans.

Great service.
If only every company was as efficient as this one. It was a bit of a leap of faith to start with; sending things off in the post for valuation and cash in return. However, I need not have worried. At every stage VCC did what they said they would. The ...
pack I needed to send my items in arrived promptly with clear instructions. I telephoned, as instructed, and spoke to friendly, helpful people. Slight hiccup with their parcel collection service, but I was able to post the items myself - post-paid by the way! VCC called to make sure I had been able to do that and hadn't had any problems. They sent a text when they had received the parcel and told me I would have a valuation within 48 hours - which I did. I was happy with their figure, and they sent a text to say that the cheque had been signed and was in the post. All this a few days before Christmas when most people have had the office party, packed up and gone home! As they say in modern-day parlance, I am well impressed.
