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: 2349 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 2349: Parker: Duofold
Parker needed a high-end pen to play second fiddle to their flagship Vacumatics. Thus, a second generation of Parker Duofolds was born. We restored this vintage pen by installing a new diaphragm and straightening the 14k gold nib. Now it is in good working order and writing a nice fine line. There is heavy brassing on the clip and cap bands, but there are no cracks. Moderate wear is featured on the cap and barrel. In spite of cosmetic flaws, it is still a reliable writer in need of a good home. The imprint is fairly well faded, but we think this is a 1941 model. Really good barrel clarity.

Vintage Pens: 2336: Parker: 51
Love barely scratches the surface of our feelings for this classic Parker 51. While most engravings look rather lame, this "Olive Crooks" really stands out as a very specially engraved design. Click the headline for a better close-up. We have no idea who she was. We just love the engraving. PLUS: This is a rarer amber jeweled Parker 51 1/10th 16k gold-filled cap, with the lifetime blue diamond on the clip. We restored the Vacumatic filler with a new diaphragm. No date code on the barrel, but it looks more like "teal blue" than "cedar blue," which would make it 1948. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. About 99% of extra-fine nibs feel a little scratchy to us, and this is no different. Light wear and scratching on the body. No cracks. Cap has a few little dimples but not deep dents. 14.4cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2289 Parker Premier
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $275.00  Was: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2289: Parker: Premier
Topping the company's lineup of pens is the Parker Premier. Dashing, modern and robustly elegant, bushed black steel is what it looks like, but it is really a nickel-palladium base metal with a ceramic finish! Nearly flawless is the best way to describe its condition. It uses Parker cartridges and converters, but it comes with neither. The black arrow nib borrows a little from the classic Parker Vacumatic look. The nib is really marked 18k gold. Click the headline for a close up. It is coated in black ruthenium. It writes a nice fine line. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2328 Parker 21
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
SOLD!
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.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2290: Parker: Premier
Topping the company's lineup of pens is the Parker Premier. Dashing, modern and robustly elegant, bushed black steel is what it looks like, but it is really a nickel-palladium base metal with a ceramic finish! Nearly flawless is the best way to describe its condition. The twist mechanism is smooth and easy to use for extending and retracting the "easy-flow" Parker refill. It good working order, we have no idea how much ink is left in the pen. 13.3cm.
Vintage Pens: 2237 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 2237: Parker: Lucky Curve
Just ahead of the Duofold came the Parker Lucky Curve. The "Lucky Curve" referred to the inkfeed that was supposedly more efficient due to a curve on the piece inside the pen that would help funnel the last drops of ink to the nib. It was a cool gimmick that didn't really work any better than any other inkfeed, but it was in the Parker advertising for close to a decade. Jade celluloid is highly discolored with lots of brassing on the trim, but this pen features a really hard-to-find extra-fine "Lucky Curve" nib. Click the headline to see it close up. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, it doesn't have its original inkfeed. The strong imprint simply says "Parker" in an early font with the usual boiler plate info. No "Duofold" or "Lucky Curve." The cap has two hairline cracks in the lip. The end caps have some edges missing. It is a junior size pen, but the nib alone is worth the price. 11.4cm capped.
