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.
