Vintage Pens: 3062: Parker: 51
Forest Green remained in production from 1948 to 1972, but it is one of the harder to find Parker 51 colors. It looks really nice on this vintage pen, as it only has light wear. Its "Lustraloy" cap shows more wear and some scratches, but it is in very good overall condition. Ours is one of the earlier aerometric (squeeze bar) fillers from the 1950s. It is in good working order, and it sports an extra fine 14k gold nib. It is a really firm, needle-nose extra-fine. The inkfeed is just a little off center, but the nib is centered. 13.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2910: Parker: 51 Flighter
Industrial design lifts the Parker 51 Flighter into the modern age of the 1950s. The all-metal Parker 51 is a slightly rarer treat from that line of pens. NO DENTS! It has some shallow light wear here and there, such as where the cap rubbed against the barrel, but the overall condition is pretty nice. It has a still-working aerometric filler. The 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line with an acceptable amount of feedback. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2789: Parker: Maxima
Parker grew with great success in the United Kingdom after WWII. It created lines of pens that were never available here in the U.S. This big, lovely black vintage pen is a Parker Maxima. They used the size name of the American Parker Vacumatic, but this is NOT a Vacumatic. It is a large aerometric-filler with an open nib from the 1950s. In the U.S. Vacumatic production ended in 1948, as 51s became the dominant pen in the Parker lineup. This UK Parker Maxima uses the new Aerometric filling system that 51s adopted in 1949. The unrestored filler works very well. Click the headline to see the nib better. Yes, it looks a little wonky, but it writes a very nice fine-medium line. We think it is smooth at our handwriting angle, but others might find a shadow of a hint of feedback at a different angle. There's brassing on the cap band. A wear ring has formed here the lip of the cap rubs against the barrel when screwed on properly. Otherwise, just light wear and no cracks. 14.2cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2377: Hero: 100
Looks familiar right? Most people might mistake it for a Parker 51 flighter, but it is really a Chinese knock-off called the Hero 100. Nearly perfect, very little wear mars the cap and barrel of brushed steel. The golden steel nib writes a fine line with some feedback. The aerometric-style filler works well. 14cm capped.
