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.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2107 Parker Vector
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 2107: Parker: Vector
Break into fountain pens with a nice daily writer that uses modern Parker converters or cartridges. We think this is a Parker Vector with a slightly different nib than we're used to seeing on most Vectors. The cap says Parker T1, but there is no way this is what most people think of as a Parker T1. The gold-plated nib shows some flaking, but it writes a pretty nice, wet medium line. It does not come with a cartridge or converter. However, we gave it a good sonic cleaning, and it is ready for action. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2106 Parker 61 Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Capillary
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 2106: Parker: 61 Flighter
Parker's last really cool filling system of the fountain pen era is the capillary filler on this Parker 61 Flighter. Simply unscrew the barrel to expose a Teflon-coated tube that has a plastic insert that soaks up ink, and dip the tail of the tube in ink. Wait a few seconds, and it is full. Your first fill might require you to dip the nib in ink afterward to prime it and get the flow started. We flushed this pen until it ran clear. The cap and barrel have some light to moderate scratches. Click the headline to see a close up of a deep scratch on the hood behind the nib. The tip of the hood has some slight warps and scratches. We had to super glue the inset arrow back into place. The original 14k gold nib writes a nice, fine line. 13.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2105 Parker Frontier
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $19.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2105: Parker: Frontier
Whether you are just getting started in fountain pens or you are introducing somebody into fountain pens, this Parker Frontier is a great daily use fountain pen. It writes a smooth medium line with its alloy nib. It comes with a converter, but this can use any Parker converter or cartridge. The green-and-black barrel and steel cap is a little scuffed and scratched in places, but there are no dents or cracks. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2088 Parker 51 Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $199.99
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: 2086 Parker Parkette Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 2086: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
Parker's Parkette Deluxe dazzles in what Sheaffer would have called "Marine Green." Marbled layers of green still look sharp in spite of its light wear. Parker rarely used levers to fill its pens, but that is how most of its second tier pens of the Parkette line filled. We restored this one with a new ink sac and a custom made J-bar spring. The gold plating has mostly come off of the steel nib that writes a nice fine line with a hint of feedback. The brown celluloid of the section is almost to darkened to see ink levels in. There are no cracks, but the lip of the cap is a little warped out of place. 12.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2085 Parker Parkette Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 2085: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
During the desperate days of the Great Depression Parker needed a second tier pen to compete with all of the cheap-o pen makers popping up and outselling them in 5 and dimes. That is when they came up with the Parkette Deluxe. A stunning design, this red-marbled pen has a 12-sided cap and barrel. The imprint is still readable. We restored this pen with a new ink sac and custom-built J-spring. It might not be as efficient as the original J-spring, but it works. The original J-spring split in half inside the pen long ago. The steel nib writes a surprisingly nice, smooth fine line. No cracks, light wear. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2081 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 2081: Parker: Duofold
Have you ever wanted to try a Parker Vacumatic but balked when you saw the price? This 1941 Parker Duofold might be an excellent first Vacumatic-fill pen for you. Just imagine what it might have seen from its creation just before the U.S. entered World War II. We fully restored this pen with a new diaphragm, and it is in great working order. The original 14k gold nib writes a nice fine-medium line, and it has a tiny bit of flex. The imprint is strong, but the 1 date code is upside-down! The aluminum speedline filler works smoothly. Although the ink-viewing portion of the barrel is darkened from age, you can still see through it a little. No cracks, BUT this poor guy saw a lot of combat in the office...if not on the battlefield. It suffers heavy wear and some deep scratches. The tail is a little pregnant where the diaphragm fits into the barrel. Still, it is a great writer for every day use. 13cm capped.
