Vintage Pens: 2364: Parker: 51
Parker 51 pens were named 51s because they were 10 years ahead of their time when released in 1941! This is an actual 1950s Parker 51 that features an original and still working aerometric filler. The burgundy barrel and hood are handsome, but the hood is marred by several deep scratches which are easily spotted in the photo. The steel "lustraloy" cap has lots of light scratches but no dents or other serious flaws. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth medium line. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2354: Parker: 51
Some vintage pen aficionados will gladly argue that the Parker 51 was the greatest fountain pen design ever created. It was certainly one of the most popular, as it remained in production for 30 years! This burgundy model with a 12k gold-filled cap is from the 1950s. There are no dents in the cap, which has pinstripes forming pyramids. Light, shallow scratches from use are unavoidable, but there are no deep, obvious scratches visible at regular writing distance from your eye. It has an original aerometric filler that is still in great working order. The original 14k gold nib writes a wet, medium line. It feels smooth to us, but some might argue it has a touch of drag with a feint about of feedback. It feels like a normal 51 nib to us. No cracks foul the hood or barrel, but there are some deep scratches on the tail where the cap had been repeatedly posted. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2344: Esterbrook: Classic M2
Why spend so much time collecting pens one by one when you can buy a whole set at once. A colorful follow-up to the SM-series is the Esterbrook Classic M2. Our collection features 6 different color pens with chrome caps: black, red, turquoise, sage, blue and grey. Not all new-old stock, some of these pens were users, such as the black one. We replaced the ink sacs on them as needed, but some were still in perfect condition. The caps are all interchangeable, but it should be noted that 3 of the 6 have splits in the chrome outer shell. The metal inner shells seem fine. The black pen barrel show light wear. The sage barrel has some flaking or chipping near the imprint. Some caps still have their original price stickers. The nibs are still replaceable like the J-models: 2550, 2555 Gregg, 2556, 2555 Gregg, 2555 Gregg, 2555 Gregg. Set includes original filling instructions and papers dated from 1959. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2328: Parker: 21
Successful as impressive as the Parker 51 was completely unexpected. To follow up with a similar but less expensive model, the Parker 21 was introduced. Almost identical to the Parker 51, the 21 had a much simpler clip and a steel nib. Otherwise they look very similar. Ours has light wear and a few little scratches, but there are no cracks or other major issues. The original ink sac is still in great working order. The steel nib writes like a steel nib. It writes a draggy fine line. Not so scratchy as dry feeling. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2088: Parker: 51 Flighter
Let your writing take wing with our Parker 51 Flighter. This rare Parker 51 is the all metal version of the pen with an aerometric filler from the late 1940s. We completely restored this pen by giving it a sonic cleaning to clear the hood and feed of old ink while also installing a new silicon ink sac. The hood and nib are just a shade off from perfect alignment. The cap and barrel show the usual wear rings from where the cap fit on the section and where it was posted on the tail. There is a small dent on the end of the tail from where the pen must have been dropped once. However, there are no other dents or deep scratches, just the usual light wear. The original metal breather tube is still in the pen. The 14k gold nib writes very nice wet medium line. 13.7cm capped.
