Vintage Pens: 0724: Parker: 51 Desk Pen
Believe it or not, we found this Parker 51 in a shoebox at an estate sale. The tail appears to be made of solid silver. There are no marks proving its silver content, but it tarnishes, looks and feels like silver. The tail has no marks of manufacture. It looks "organic" in art-world jargon. We are pretty sure Parker didn't make it. It looks a little like something Ariel Kullock would make, but it isn't signed in any way. And the collection it came with was really old and low-rent. It might have been made by some lone jeweler or craftsman many years ago. The barrel, hood and 14k gold nib are all decidedly Parker. The barrel has a 1946 date code. We restored the pen with a new diaphragm. The tail taper screws on tightly; we just left it a little loose so you could see the design better. The nib writes an amazingly smooth and extra-fine line. We bought the base separate from the pen, but they make a good fit. Light to moderate wear on both the pen hood/barrel and base. No chips or cracks.

Vintage Pens: 2645: Parker: Vacumatic
How do you not fall in love with a 1937 Parker Vacumatic Major with matching green pearl jewels? Toss in 90% barrel clarity, an imprint so strong you can read it in the photo and a two-tone 14k gold arrow nib, and we don't expect this vintage pen to stick around for long. We restored it a couple years ago, and the diaphragm and aluminum speed line filler are in good working order. No cracks and only light wear. It's only real flaw is one tine of the nib looks a little goofy when you click the headline font for a close-up. However, we are happy to report, it writes a nice fine line. 13.2cm capped.

Click the headline to see the unique cap of this Parker 51 a little more closely. We've never seen "Parker" written into the rim of the cap like this before, plus seems cut off about a third of the way from the bottom. On the back it says "1/10 14k Gold Filled / Made in USA." The last line was almost cut off. There is a circle of brassing directly below the pocket clip, and a line of brassing just to its write. The pinstripe design is worn on the back. No real dents, but one reverse dent. The rest of the pen is a basic 51 from the second quarter of 1944. We replaced the diaphragm, and the pen is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a really sharp extra-fine line. Some might call it scratchy, but XF lovers will likely enjoy it. The nib cowl has some scratches and gentle warp. The barrel has some wear, and the blind cap isn't lining up squarely. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1351: Parker: 51 Half Demonstrator
To help showcase the incredible wonder of the Parker 51, the company made some rare demonstrator and half demonstrator models for sales reps to show off to pen shops. This is an authentic Parker 51 "half demonstrator" from the 1940s. There is no date code on the pen, but it has a Vacumatic filler, which we restored with a fresh diaphragm. (The pump doesn't like to come all the way up, but it does work.) Click the headline to see a close up of the clear nib cowl, ink feed and 14k gold nib. The cap has an amber jewel. The nut under it is stripped, so...to our honest shame...we super glued it in place to hold the clip on more tightly. The cap has multiple dimples. Still, it is a really nice grail pen! 13.8cm capped.

Love barely scratches the surface of our feelings for this classic Parker 51. While most engravings look rather lame, this "Olive Crooks" really stands out as a very specially engraved design. Click the headline for a better close-up. We have no idea who she was. We just love the engraving. PLUS: This is a rarer amber jeweled Parker 51 1/10th 16k gold-filled cap, with the lifetime blue diamond on the clip. We restored the Vacumatic filler with a new diaphragm. No date code on the barrel, but it looks more like "teal blue" than "cedar blue," which would make it 1948. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. About 99% of extra-fine nibs feel a little scratchy to us, and this is no different. Light wear and scratching on the body. No cracks. Cap has a few little dimples but not deep dents. 14.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1261: Parker: 51 Set
Here's a pretty pair of Parker 51s. The rarer cordovan brown really stands out on this vintage pen set with gold-filled caps. The pencil is in near-mint condition. There are no scratches, dents or dings in the cap or barrel. The cap twists easily to extend and retract the lead. The fountain pen has a working diaphragm that was replaced within the past year or so. No imprint on the barrel. The hood and barrel show little ridges where the cap has rested closed. Otherwise there is minimal wear and tear. There is a little dent under where the clip must have snapped into place after multiple shirt pocket removals. Aside from a couple tiny marks, the rest of the cap is clean of indentations. There is some heavy brassing at the base of the back of the cap. The pattern on the cap is straight lines with a blank window for some initials. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to fine line. 13.5cm capped.
