Vintage Pens: 1635 Parker Duofold Junior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 1635: Parker: Duofold Junior
Parker Duofolds are iconic vintage pens that, in many ways, really got people addicted to pens. This is the streamlined junior size jade-green model. The cap remains a beautiful green, but the barrel is heavily discolored. The cap has no cracks, but the gold trim has heavy brassing. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The 14k gold nib is a 1940s Vacumatic replacement, as is the inkfeed. The nib writes a fine line with a little feedback at some angles. 11.4cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $89.99  Was: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1184: Parker: Duofold
The yin and yang of this pen is its rare wide-band cap and fine original nib with a little flex juxtaposed against some serious scratching around the tail of the barrel and corrosion of some kind on the tassie. The pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It has a great barrel imprint. Some wear from daily use many decades ago. A little brassing around the base of the cap band. Click the headline font for bigger close ups. 11.5cm capped, not counting the tassie ring.
Vintage Pens: 1109 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1109: Parker: Duofold
Parker sent off their first generation of Duofolds with a few stunning color patterns before retiring the line. This senior size streamlined Parker Duofold sports an incredible green art deco design. The top of the cap and the blind cap are ebonite with some chocolate hazing. That's the worst of the wear on the pen. No cracks, just a couple little dings and light traces of wear. The pen has a fresh ink sac. The tines of the 14k nib have a little separation, and the pen writes a wet broad line with a little hint of a scratch. Better nib experts than us can probably get that gap fixed and shrink the width of the line. 13cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 1634 Parker Snakes
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $1,199.99  Was: $1,499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 1634: Parker: Snakes
One of the rarest pens treasured by vintage pen collectors is the 1906 Parker Snakes. This 1997 reproduction limited edition by Parker is equally incredible. The serpentine design of sterling silver is accentuated by brilliant emerald green eyes on the snakes. It uses a cartridge or converter, but its original owner states it has never been used. The pen is in mint condition, complete with its papers, mint-condition black leather box in the photo, an outer cloth-covered box with a few traces of wear and that box's rather beat-up flimsy cardboard box covering. A rare jewel for your pen collection!
Vintage Pens: 1692 Parker 75 RMS Queen Elizabeth
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $999.99  Was: $1,299.99
Vintage Pens: 1692: Parker: 75 RMS Queen Elizabeth
She was the grandest lady to sail the seven seas with unparalleled refinement: the RMS Queen Elizabeth. The finest ship of the Cunard line, she was designed to stylishly cross the Atlantic in one week with a speed and grace yet to be experienced. She was drafted for the war effort in 1940, before her first cruise! She safely carried nearly 900,000 soldiers around the world before she ever got to carry a passenger for pleasure. Refurbished after the war for her intended purpose, she spent more than 2 decades fulfilling peoples dreams at sea. In the 1970s, she was bought to be converted into a floating international university. While being refit, a fire broke out and she was sunk in Honk Kong harbor. This very limited Parker 75 is just about all that is left, as it was made from the brass salvaged from the wreckage! Sparingly used, it is in mint condition and comes complete with its treasure chest box, papers, nib key, chest key, 2 converters and cloth cozy.
Pre-Owned Pens: 1630 Parker Duofold World Memorial Pen
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $159.99  Was: $199.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 1630: Parker: Duofold World Memorial Pen
Fusing metals from disarmed U.S. Pershing and Soviet SS20 nuclear missiles to make the topper/crown of this pen, a symbol of growing world peace in the 1990s, this special, limited-edition Parker Duofold ballpoint pen was made to help fund world disaster relief. This preowned pen was lightly used and shows a little wear on close inspection, but nothing noticeable at arm's length. It comes complete with its original certificate of authenticity, American maple wood box and outer Parker box. The refill seems to be in good working order.
Pre-Owned Pens: 1578 Parker Sonnet
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $69.99  Was: $75.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 1578: Parker: Sonnet
Now here's a Parker Sonnet you don't see every day. The preowned luxury pen seems to be sporting some kind of crystal in the clip. We have no idea how real it is, but it is a very nice complement to the gold-plated pen. It uses a modern Parker converter or cartridge, but it comes with neither. The golden alloy nib writes a decent medium line with a little flex. The pen has minimal wear, only light scratches--no dents. Both black end jewels are in place. Very attractive. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1484 Parker Duofold (English)
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1484: Parker: Duofold (English)
Milk chocolate looks quite tasty on this English-made Parker Duofold! Definitely a rarer color, we are pleased to offer it in a full-restored button-filling fountain pen. The golden trim is nearly perfect, but the plastic of the cap and barrel have some wear. There is an inch-long scratch near the tail, just over and to the right of the strong Duofold imprint. (Click the headline, and maybe you can see it in the enlarged photos.) No cracks. The original 14k gold nib looks like it might be an oblique angle. It writes a bold, wet line, with only a hint of feedback at the peaks and valleys of the ascenders and descenders. The cap and tail jewels are the same milk chocolate color! This vintage pen looks very similar to a Parker Duofold major with a slightly wider body. 13.3cm capped.
