Vintage Pens: 2254 Parker 75
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 2254: Parker: 75
Sterling silver Parker 75 fountain pens are a dime a dozen, but these orange models are among the rarest. We love this Thanksgiving mottle orange design. It was made in France, and the nib features French gold purity hallmarks. The pen is in excellent condition with hardly any trace of wear. The ends are the two-tone dish design. The pen uses any modern Parker converter or cartridge but comes with neither. The 14k gold nib is marked medium but is a little stingier on the ink. 12.8cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2225 Parker 51 Limited Edition
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2225: Parker: 51 Limited Edition
Reviving and reveling in its greatest success, Parker brought back its legendary Parker 51 for a limited edition. Created in a turquoise and black model, each features the highly sought empire cap, which evokes the New York skyline. This pen is in like-new condition and appears to have been used maybe once. It comes complete with its boxes and papers. The pen is flawless. It includes a converter, but it also takes Parker cartridges. The 18k gold nib writes a smooth medium line. The silver-plated cap shows some tarnishing. A little polishing with a silver polishing cloth didn't do anything to remove the tarnish, which makes us think Parker coated the cap in something to slow the tarnishing process. We left it alone. If you buy this and want us to shine it to perfection, we will, but you need to know that will remove the entire protective coating and the cap will tarnish much more quickly.

Vintage Pens: 2247: Parker: GT 180 Flighter
Clever innovation wins us over every time, and this Parker GT 180 Flighter fountain pen is brilliant! A two-sided 14k gold nib provides two writing options. You can write a smooth broad line or a nice fine-medium line with a little feedback. It is like getting two pens in one! This comes with its original squeeze bar converter, but you can use modern Parker ink cartridges and converters in it. No dents or cracks and only the faintest of wear. 13.2cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2253 Parker Ingenuity
Filling Mechanism: Marker
Era: 1980-present
Price: $79.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2253: Parker: Ingenuity
Less than a decade ago, Parker announced a revolutionary new filling system for a pen that they simply called "5th Generation." It was made for the Parker Ingenuity. It looks like a fountain pen, but it writes with a marker refill! It was an oddity to us until we bought this pen in a collection and stuck a new refill in. OMG. It is a smooth writing experience...nothing like those felt-time markers that had drag. Plus this is a practically new pen with minimal wear. The brown, textured rubber cap and barrel with silvery trim is heavier and wider than you might think from the photos. (Click headline for more.) Brand new refill. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2246 Parker Challenger
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 2246: Parker: Challenger
To get through the Great Depression, Parker designed a beautiful pen that used its older, cheaper button-filling technology to provide affordable pens to a desperate nation. This pen is known as the Parker Challenger. The version above seems to carry a 1940 date code and is made from an exquisite red-marble celluloid. It shows some moderate wear and brassing, but it is still a very attractive pen. We restored it with a new ink sac and hanging pressure bar system. No cracks. A couple deeper scars on the blind cap, and the see-through section is heavily darkened with age. The original 14k gold nib writes a wet fine line that some Japanese-nib lovers might call medium. It has a little FLEX, and it sings a bit as it writes. Smooth. 12.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2245 Parker Vacumatic Major
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 2245: Parker: Vacumatic Major
Parker spent millions of dollars (in today's money) on research and design for the incredible Parker Vacumatic. Using a rubber diaphragm to fill a hollow barrel with ink meant that any Vac held more ink than any sac filler. It fills by pumping a plastic rod hidden by a blind cap in the tail. Our Parker Vacumatic Major was made in 1943. It was clearly a trusty pen, as it shows moderate to heavy wear. We restored it with a new diaphragm, and it is ready for more years of service. Click the headline to see the cigarette burn near the barrel imprint. Also, the nib and feed look smaller than what normally goes in this pen. Still, the 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line with a hint of feedback. The top black jewel is chewed, but the clip is on tight. No cracks. The speedline filler started to make the barrel feel a little "pregnant" so we stopped overtightening, which leaves a thin gap between the blind cap and barrel. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2244 Parker Streamlined Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 2244: Parker: Streamlined Duofold
Click it! Click it! Click the headline to look first and foremost at the RARE two-tone 14k Parker Duofold nib! Bigger than a traditional Duofold Jr. and shorter than a traditional Duofold Senior, we aren't sure what its official classification is. Still, it is a fully restored vintage pen that looks great. The deep cranberry and black marbling looks like a freshly licked lollipop. It shines through its light wear. The clip has a little brassing. The most egregious flaw is a bit of an impression where the cap snugged up to the barrel while properly screwed on. The nib writes a very firm but smooth fine line. 11.9cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2117 Parker Unknown
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1980-present
Price: $19.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2117: Parker: Unknown
Tiny blue flecks sparkle against the grey-and-chrome body of this modern Parker pencil. We think it is .7mm, but we aren't 100% sure. It comes with a couple extra leads, but the eraser seems stuck in the clicker button that comes off so that you can refill the pencil. Original box but no papers. Great condition, light wear. 14.1cm
