Vintage Pens: 4354: Parker: Raven
Flexi nibs are pretty rare on Parker pens of the 1920s and '30s. Yet, this Parker Raven has a Christmas tree inkfeed and an almost wet noodle 14k gold Lucky Curve nib. It is very flexi, and it writes fine to about 1.25mm. We replaced the ink sac. The steel button is a little short and might take a couple pushes to fill completely. It has a clean, strong imprint, but there is some wear from use. There's a tiny bit of brassing on the edges of the cap bands and edges of the clip. Click the headline for close-ups. Slender and 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4286: Parker: Duofold
Lapis blue Parker Duofolds are our favorite color variants on the famed vintage pen. We restored this classic Parker Duofold with a new ink sac and new pressure bar assembly. Its cap has a little better color than the barrel. Both are a bit darker than when new, but neither is fully discolored, either. The most discoloration is by the cap threads on the barrel. No cracks. About 30% brassing on the cap band, plus a little on the ball of the clip. You'll find light wear on the cap and barrel, but the pen is in remarkable condition for being more than 90 years old. Cosmetically, for some, its biggest turn off might be "Asa L. Child" engraved on both the cap and barrel. Click the headline for a clear look at the imprint. Marked "Lucky Curve," the inkfeed is a 1930s Vacumatic-style replacement. Its 14k gold Duofold nib writes a fine-medium line with a touch of feedback. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4192: Parker: Desk Pen
Striking us right between the eyes on this Parker desk pen were its fantastic pearl-and-black design with only light discoloration and its SEMI-FLEX nib. No wet noodle, this 14k gold nib still flexes from extra-fine to about 1mm. Any flex in a Parker nib from this era seems positively strange, but it is a nice and reasonably smooth nib! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its tail taper still gleams black. Only light wear on the barrel and light chocolate hazing on the section. Its imprint is clear, but it is not listed as a Duofold, and it appears to have a 1935 date code on the barrel. The nib is not a Duofold nib, either, and its inkfeed looks more like a Vacumatic's than a Christmas-tree feed. Click the headline for close-ups. 19cm.

Vintage Pens: 4158: Parker: Raven
Duofold in disguise? Our long-slender Parker vintage pen is a little tricky to identify. Black celluloid, Lucky Curve nib, Christmas-tree inkfeed without the "Lucky Curve," no numbers, no Jack Knife Safety or Duofold imprint. Its imprint simply reads "Geo. S. Parker Pen Made in U.S.A. / Patented". As it turns out, this is a Parker Raven! Its 14k gold nib is marked as a rare Lucky Curve 2. YOU WILL LOVE its rarer SEMI-FLEX ability that writes a fine-medium line to nearly 2mm wide! It has a little feedback, but most semi-flex nibs do. We restored it with a new ink sac. Its button is steel, not gold or gold plated. No cap band; it never had one. Long and slender, this vintage pen is quite elegant. It has some light to moderate wear, but there are no cracks, nor are there any long, deep scratches. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4108: Parker: Duofold
Click the headline to see why we're so excited about this senior jade Parker Duofold. Looks at that nib! It has the early "Lucky Curve" imprint. There's a little scratching on the nib under the imprint, but the 14k gold nib writes a very nice, dry extra-fine line. You'll feel the paper under your nib, but it isn't what we'd consider a scratchy nib. This is quite possibly the closest Parker Duofolds ever came to a modern Japanese extra-fine nib. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The inkfeed is a Christmas tree feed, but it no longer has its curve. Thus, this pen has an unlucky curve. There's brassing on the clip but no cracks in the cap or barrel. Some discoloration, but we've seen much worse. Look closely at the photo, and you'll see the crisp barrel imprint with "Lucky Curve" in the banner. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4107: Parker: Lucky Curve
There's so much to love about this Parker Lucky Curve...and so much to be disappointed by. On the one hand, this vintage pen has an excellent cap and barrel with no cracks and sharp pinstripe chasing as well as a clean imprint. But the cap band has a lot of brassing on the bottom edge. We'ver restored it with a new ink sac. It has its original intact Lucky Curve feed AND an original Parker Lucky Curve P3X nib! Click the headline to see a close-up. That image is magnified close to 10 times its original size, but it still doesn't show the huge hairline crack sprouting out through the 3 and drifting to the right of the breather hole. You can almost see a little crack leading toward the section from the breather hole. This rarer vintage nib of 14k gold writes a smooth fine line, and in its younger days had reliable flex...but now if you try to flex it, you might split the nib in two. Be very careful if you chose to write with it. 11.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4104: Parker: Lucky Curve
Saving people money during the Great Depression, Parker set out to make a more affordable series of pens. This ringtop model is a rare example of an early plastic they used with a really attractive red pattern. The faint imprint says Parker Lucky Curve, however, on restoring the pen, it doesn't have a Lucky Curve feed. In fact, its feed is missing a couple collector fins. We installed a new ink sac and pressure bar. Click the headline to see the old plier mark damage on the section. Its 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine to fine line...AND it has a little FLEX. Overall, the pen only shows light wear. Unfortunately, there is one more hitch. The new pressure bar forces the button to ride a little higher than it used to, and the streamlined blind cap doesn't seat all the way down properly. You can see it in the photo. 11.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3872: Parker: Duofold
Streamlined senior Parker Duofold pens in green that aren't hideously discolored are a treat. Our vintage pen is a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it will be a great writer. On the list for the good Dr. Jekyll, this pen has very nice color with only a ring of discoloration behind the cap threads on the barrel of the pen. Also in Dr. Jekyll's favor is an original price sticker on the streamlined tail blind cap. On 3 lines it reads "107 / Med. / $7.00." Mr. Hyde shows his ugly face when one recognizes the cap has only one of its two cap bands. A couple dozen bite marks also showcase the evils of Mr. Hyde. Buuut, the good Dr. Jekyll returns with the original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib that writes an extremely smooth, wet medium line. 13cm capped.
