A rare broad nib helps this handsome teal blue Parker 51 Demi stand out from the crowd. Its aerometric filler makes it easier to fill, and its original pli-glass sac is still in great working order. The Demi models are a little shorter than the standard models, but it still feels great in your hand and writes well. You'll find a little light wear from use but nothing particularly stands out. Its nib is a degree or two off center but writes smoothly when you find the sweet spot. The broad nib is closer to modern day mediums, just a shade thicker. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4902: Parker: 51
For many fountain pen aficionados the Parker 51 represents perfection. By the time this Parker 51 came along in the 1950s, the pens were virtually leak proof, took forever to dry out, wrote reliably and well, and were very easy to fill with their aerometric fillers. Dip the nib in ink, squeeze the filler 4 times and you are likely ready to write for a week or more. This pen maintains its original pli-glass ink sac in great working order. You will write a very nice extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. It does have a hint of feedback, which is normal on a vintage extra fine. Though well cared for over the years, it was a daily user and has some wear on the hood. There's a little corrosion on the clip band and clip. None of it will prevent this pen from being your reliable, go-to vintage daily driver. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4900: Parker: 21
Always concerned about writers on a budget, Parker 21s were released to be the more affordable version of the luxury line of Parker 51s. Made with a cheaper plastic than the 51s, 21s are actually getting harder to find...at least in working order. Our burgundy 21 appears to be in great shape and working just fine. It has an excellent original "pli-glass" ink sac. Its steel nib writes a very nice medium line with only a hint of feedback at certain angles. Although the pen looks nice in general, there are a couple of big scratches on the barrel, along with a ring around where the cap normally snugs when closed. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4898: Parker: 51
Imperfections shouldn't get in the way of a good daily driver in the world of vintage pens. Parker 51s were the most popular luxury pen of the vintage pen heyday. We restored the 1950s aerometric filler with a new "pli-glass" ink sac. The pen is bargain priced because of the pitting and flaws in its gold-plated cap. The cap works perfectly well, it is just cosmetically challenged. The clip works well, too, but it, also, looks worse for wear. The hood and barrel are crack free. There is a scar around the barrel where the cap rests in the closed position. You'll write a rigid, firm fine line with its 14k gold nib. 13.5cm capped.

Parker VP meant Very Personal. The revolutionary developments for this pen included an ergonomic grip for the fountain pen and a nib and feed that could be rotated to better accommodate for the grip and getting the nib to write from any angle. These are rarer pens, as they only made VPs for a couple years. It led to the monumental success of the Parker 75. This teal colored vintage pen has a major problem in its barrel. Click the headline for a close-up to see the 1.5cm crack in the barrel where it threads into the section. Basically, the crack is bad and makes the pen unstable to write with...without making the crack worse. This is a shame, as the aerometric filler unit is in great condition. In most VPs, this is the rare part that is whole. Its 14k gold nib writes a very smooth broad line. 13.8cm capped.

Parker VP pens heralded many great innovations in their short production run. Without these pens, the Parker 75 would never have been the mega hit it became. Our favorite innovation is the adjustable nib. You can carefully pinch the nib and turn it to the left or right to better suit how your hand grips its ergonomic section. Click the headline for close-ups of the pen and nib. Our vintage pen is in good working order. It comes with an original aerometric filler with the see-though window. Many of these are broken in other pens, but our's is still intact! There are cracks in the cap or barrel, just some light to moderate wear from use. The only dent is under the arrow clip. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine line with a little feedback. 13.7cm capped.

Amber jewels are some of our favorite rare traits in Parker 51 pens. Our Parker 51 set features a burgundy fountain pen, a 1/10 12k gold filled cap and an amber jewel on top. Click the headline for a close-up of the jewel. This is a great aerometric filler with minimal wear on the hood and barrel. A couple of dents were pushed out of the cap, which looks really nice. It sports pinstripes that angle into steep mountain peaks. Its original 14k gold nib writes a dry, fine line with a little feedback. The mechanical, click pencil matches almost perfectly, except it has a grey jewel, and a little ding on the back of the cap. You click the back cap to advance a .9mm lead. It works great and comes with a hardened eraser and extra leads. Somebody did write in asking if the FP jewel was a "dead" jewel instead of an amber one. I'm not sure I'd know the difference, but this one is decidedly more yellow/orange than standard grey/pearl versions we have here.
