Vintage Pens: 5132: Parker: 51
In the first quarter of 1946, when this Parker 51 was made, it was a time of boundless optimism. The war was over, the baby boom was just starting, business was thriving and anything seemed possible. Who knows what this vintage pen might have helped record? We do know it has been fully restored with a new diaphragm and that it still looks pretty sharp. Only a few very small marks can be found on the gold-filled cap. Its original blue enamel is missing just a touch in the center of the diamond. The hood and barrel show a little more wear from use, but it isn't bad at all considering it is 76 years old. You will write an extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. Unlike so many vintage American nibs, this really is more like an accountant's nib or Japanese extra-fine nib. You'll feel the paper beneath you as your write, but it isn't scratchy. Genuine feedback and smooth. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5113: Parker: 51
Iconic. How else would you describe the Parker 51? It revolutionized pen design and functionality. It took the world by storm to become one of the greatest selling vintage pens of all time. Our pen is restored with a new diaphragm. Dated from 1944, this pen has seen an awful lot in its 78 years. It has some obvious wear around the hood and barrel, but there is nothing major in terms of cracks or deep scratches. No dents spoil the look of the gold-filled cap. The pen is what Parker called "Cedar Blue." You will write a nice fine line with a hint of feedback using its 14k gold nib, which is just a degree or two off center from the point of the hood cowling. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5056: Parker: Vacumatic
The Parker Pen Company made one of the greatest innovations in filling-system history when it created the Vacumatic. Using a rubber diaphragm, this pen keeps the barrel hollow to hold way more ink than contemporary ink sac pens of its time. We restored this vintage pen with a new diaphragm. Our Parker Vacumatic has some wear from use, but it remains in excellent working order. Sadly, the barrel clarity is nil. There's some brassing on the cap band. There is good legibility on the imprint, and it has a 1945 date code. You will write a nice medium line with its 14k gold nib. This is a major sized pen that is 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4993: Parker: 51
Born in 1946, this Parker 51 is considered the Teal Blue with a gold-filled cap. The most unique thing about this pen is its cartouche for initials. We don't see many of these caps, especially without initials already engraved in them. We restored this vintage pen with a new diaphragm. Its 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. It isn't buttery smooth. It doesn't really have much feedback either. This is one of those nibs that is a little difficult to describe, but it is a pleasant writer. The cap has a couple tiny dimples on it. The hood and barrel show some wear from daily use. No cracks or deep scratches, but lots of light scratches and surface wear when you take a really close look. Still, at writing distance, no one will see the wear. 13.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4899: Parker: Vacumatic
Parker got creative with some of its Vacumatic variants over the years. This is the rarer Parker Vacumatic Long Major. It is the same width as a Major at the length of a Maxima. Our vintage pen was exquisitely restored. It has a fresh diaphragm and the cap and barrel are without blemishes. A crisp imprint shows a 1942 date code. As you can see in the photo, the barrel clarity is excellent with some ambering. Even the nib still has most of its two-tone plating. You will write a firm, extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. There is a little feedback with the nib, and we think you might have to break it in a bit to get it consistently flowing. Although you could make it a daily writer, cosmetically, it is good enough for a museum. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4897: Parker: Vacumatic
Holy cats! A factory stub nib on a Parker Vacumatic Maxima! This sure isn't something we see all that often. Click the headline for close-ups. It is fully restored with a working diaphragm. Oh, but that nib! This 14k gold wonder is buttery smooth while delivering nice line variation. You'll find its cap and barrel are great, too. No cracks or blemishes. It appears it was wet-sanded to a high-gloss shine. Unfortunately, it took away most of the pen's imprint. The "1" on the nib indicates that at least the nib was made in 1941. Inside the pen, the celluloid is darkly ambered. Flaws be damned, this is one of the best writing Maximas we've ever seen, but we love vintage pens with stub nibs. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4519: Parker: Vacumatic Maxima
Do you wish your vintage grail pen came with a Japanese extra-fine nib? This 1939 Parker Vacumatic Maxima gets pretty close to Japanese extra-fine with the right paper. It is a beautiful silver pearl design with tolerable barrel clarity with ambering. No cracks, no scratches, no significant wear. It comes with a fresh diaphragm and a clean imprint and top and bottom silver pearl design jewels. There's monotone 14k gold nib. Click the headline for close-ups. Great aluminum speedline filler. Its only flaw seems to be the darkened metal trim around the blind-cap jewel. 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4520: Parker: Vacumatic
The larger Parker Vacumatic Maxima fountain pens are a difficult find these days. However, we are proud to showcase a very handsome golden pearl model from 1941. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. It is in excellent condition with no cracks or brassing. There is minimal wear. Its only flaw seems to be that the barrel is ambered. You can still see through it when empty, but the celluloid is fairly dark. Click the headline to see its beautiful two-tone 14k gold nib. You will write a firm, wet, fine line. The firmness gives it feedback, but it isn't scratchy for those who appreciate the nuance of a smooth nib with feedback. 13.6cm capped.
