Vintage Pens: 2109: Parker: 51
Parker 51s were the longest production-run pens of the golden era of vintage pens spanning 1941 to 1972. This is one of the pens that came from the late '60s or early '70s. You can tell because it has a black jewel topping the cap. It is in good working order with its original filler. The cap and barrel have light to moderate wear, but there are no cracks or dents. Its 14k gold nib writes a medium-broad line. 13.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2108: Parker: 21
With the wildly popular Parker 51 costing a whopping $15, a discount version was soon released called the Parker 21. It only cost $5, with its primary differences being a steel nib, cheaper plastics and a simpler cap design. We cleaned this vintage pen up, and it is in good working order. It has an original pliglass (silicone) ink sac that is still in good order. For whatever reason, it doesn't seem to fill most of the way, but it still fills enough to write for several pages. The section and barrel are a bit scratched up from use, but that just means it was a loyal companion. The nib writes a remarkably smooth, wet fine line. 13.3cm 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.

Vintage Pens: 1938: Parker: 51 Demi
Fairly hard to find are these "forest green" Parker 51s. Not as rare as the "plume" models, but you don't see 'em every day. Our Parker 51 Demi is dated 1949, and it is in great working order with its original aerometric filling system and silicon sac. The barrel is in excellent condition. The hood has some scratches near the nib and a ring where the cap snugs against it. The cap is marked "1/10th 12k Gold Filled." It is dent free and in great condition. It is easy to overlook the original 14k gold nib on a rare-color pen, but this was writes a beautifully smooth medium line. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1485: Parker: Maxima (English)
English Parkers of the late 1940s and early 1950s really seemed to take the best of American Parkers and incorporate it into its designs. This Parker Maxima is a full size pen with a nice wide grip, which makes for easier writing with less cramping. It has an American Parker Vacumatic shape, but with more modern plastics and an aerometric filler such as a Parker 51. This vintage pen is in great condition with only light surface wear and a handsome green color that is a little lighter than a traditional British racing green. The original 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line. It is a little inconsistent switching between fine and medium. 14.3cm capped.
