Lot Of 3 Vintage Usa Fountain Pens Chased Gold Overlay, Solid 14k Nibs, Wahl Etc

Please view all 12 pictures and read the descriptions before offerding. Thanks.
Lot of three vintage fountain pens made in the USA many decades ago, with nicely chased, gold-filled, cap and barrel metal overlays, and solid gold 14 K nibs. These pens areguaranteed not to write unless skillfully restored. They will require an internal cleaning, resetting, and new bladders at least. One of the nibs may require advanced skills to restore. These pens are offered as collectibles only. I bought them on many years ago as non-working collectibles and it is time for them to go back.
The top pen is unbranded. It measures a little over 4 5/8" capped. It is a piston-filler. As usual, unscrewing the blind cap at the end of the barrel reveals the piston, which is totally frozen in place.The bladder is assumed to have perished.Both cap and barrel are twelve-sided. Both cap and barrel end in truncated smooth cones. The body is chased in an alternating pattern of straight lines and a simple repeated motif. The clip has two tiny rivets that tie it to the cap. The only writing on the pen is in the solid gold nib, which reads WARRANTED / 14 K / No. 2. The nib is in excellent visual condition, fairly unscratched, straight, and has a smooth tip, about a fine. The clip is tight and straight, the cap and blind cap screw in smoothly and tightly. There is light microscratching all over, but no significant dings or dents. The gold plating is very good and the pen is shiny. Overall, very good unrestored condition.
The middle pen is a Wahl. It measures about 4 15/16" capped. It is a lever filler. The short lever moves slightly. The bladder is assumed to have perished. Cap and barrel have the same chased pattern of chevrons and straight lines. The top of the cap reads WAHL PEN / GOLD FILLED MADE IN USA. The cap is in good condition, with a tight, smooth clip and no significant dents or dings. It screws smoothly and tightly. The barrel is girdled by a series of dents just before the cap. They probably were made by an unskilled restorer. The plastic section has a matching girdle of scratches, called plier marks. The scratches could be improved by skillful polishing. The dents, maybe. The solid gold nib is in excellent visual condition and has a smooth tip, between fine and medium. It reads WAHL / 2 / 14 K. It is fairly unscratched and very straight.The body of the pen has light microscratching all over, but no significant dings or dents other than those described. The gold plating is very good and the pen is shiny. Overall, fair unrestored condition.
The bottom pen is a Redipoint. It measures over 4 7/8" capped. It is a lever filler.The lever is frozen. The bladder is assumed to have perished. There is a chased fleur-de-lis pattern alternating with smooth strips. The cap clip is straight and fairly tight. The rim at the top of the cap reads Redipoint / PATENTED-MADE IN USA / ROLLED GOLD. The top of the cap is enameled in blue, and in white letters it reads THE FRANKLIN FIRE INS. CO. OF PHILA. The logo is in pretty good shape (see photo 6).The cap screws on tightly and smoothly.The solid gold nib reads Redipoint / ST. PAUL and below that there is a number hidden by the section; maybe a 2. The tines are slightly bent. It is fairly unscratched. The body of the pen has light microscratching all over, but no significant dings or dents. The gold plating is very good and the pen is shiny. Overall, good unrestored condition. The Ingersoll Redipoint company was founded in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1922. Redipoints are often found with insurance company logos on enamel.
