Vintage Pens: Parker 21

Vintage Pens: 2575 Parker 21
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $25.00
Discovering the need to offer a cheaper little brother to their flagship 51, the Parker 21 was similar in many ways. The major difference was that it has a steel nib instead of a gold nib. The rest from the hooded nib to the aerometric filler were almost the same. This vintage pen has wear from use. Primarily, it is posting and closing rings from where the cap rubbed against the pen. No deep scratches or cracks. Its most egregious flaw is some pitting in the top of the steel cap jewel. The original silicon ink sac still works well. The steel nib writes a smooth medium-broad line. 13.1cm capped.
