Vintage Pens: 1085: Parker: Vacumatic
Built in the 3rd quarter of 1943, our Parker Vacumatic Major in golden pearl likely has incredible stories to tell. Did it ship out overseas? Did it stay in the the U.S. writing beautiful love letters to someone far from home? Maybe it was put into service on the homefront? We've restored it to great working order with a new diaphragm. Good barrel clarity graces this pen. Unfortunately, there are too long scratches down the side of the barrel and a little rash on the back of the cap, as if it were rubbed for a second on the sidewalk. It isn't a big blemish, only about an inch long and a 1/4-inch wide, but it is there. No cracks! Good barrel imprint. Click the headline to see the 14k gold nib. The tip looks just a shade off, but it writes a very nice, wet fine line. The clip's arrowhead is just a shade off the side of the cap. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3103 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3103: Parker: Duofold
In the late, late 1920s and early, early 1930s, Parker began experimenting a little more with the color of its flagship Duofold pens. Our streamlined Parker Duofold has the lovely burgundy-and-black marbled design. The barrel imprint is strong and clear. You won't read the word "Junior" on it, but the length seems closer to a junior size. It has a couple scratches and wear marks, but it is in overall good cosmetic condition. No cracks! Brassing is only found on the bottom cap band and the ball of the pocket clip. The original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a dry extra-fine to fine line. Fully restored with a new ink sac. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3102 Parker 105
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3102: Parker: 105
Gold-filled "bark" trim on a Parker 105 fountain pen is about one of the neatest designs we've ever experienced in a vintage pen! Yep. The cap and barrel look like the trunk of a tree...a gold tree. Better, yet, it has a SEMI-FLEX nib! The condition of the cap and barrel is nearly perfect without any dents, scratches or engravings. The small black section and nib top have some surface scratches. However, the 14k gold nib starts extra fine, but you can manipulate it to about 1mm wide. It does have a little feedback. The pen fills with its original pressure-bar converter, but you can also use modern Parker converters or ink cartridges! 13.2cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3113 Parker Duofold Centennial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3113: Parker: Duofold Centennial
Behold the mighty rare Centennial Jasper Red modern Parker Duofold! This is the only one we have seen in real life! It is in mint condition without any cracks, scratches or other blemishes. It is quite possible this pen was used only once with its original cartridge. Its converter looks uninked, and everything about it is remarkably clean. We found it with this box and a set of papers, but we aren't certain this is its actual original box. It also comes with its outer box, which wasn't photographed. Click the headline for close-ups. Its two-tone 18kt gold nib is marked a medium. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3101 Parker Vacumatic Long Major
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3101: Parker: Vacumatic Long Major
Out of the Great Depression and before World War II, Americans finally had money to spend on good pens again. This 1939 Parker Vacumatic Long Major is an excellent example of the best money could buy back then. Remarkably clear, our emerald pearl vintage pen is fully restored with a fresh diaphragm. There are no cracks and very little wear. The double jewels are made of the emerald pearl stripes! It has an aluminum speedline filler. Two-toned 14k gold mades for a great hairline extra-fine nib that is a little scratchy because it is very extra-fine. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3100 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3100: Parker: 51
Hip, hip, hooray! The class of 1942 celebrated in style with this first-year 1941 Parker 51! Well, partly first year 51. Marketing material for the grand release of the Parker 51 in 1941 said that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time, which is why it was called the 51. Only first-year pens were given the aluminum tail jewel in the blind cap. Although the imprint seems to have worn off, the "Class of '42" engraving seems to be a nice verification of age. We are a little perplexed that the pen looks more teal blue than cedar blue, as would be appropriate. The sterling silver cap, which is in great condition, is a later model replacement cap. It still has a blue-diamond clip, but the jewel is plastic grey pearl--not aluminum. This vintage pen's diaphragm has been replaced, and it is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Light wear can be found in all the usual places. No cracks or dents. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3098 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 3098: Parker: Vacumatic
Before they notice anything else, Parker Vacumatic (Major) hounds will jump on the fact this pen has a rarer "stacked coins" cap band. Golden Pearl stripes make up for some of the scratches. They also partially conceal the engraved "Edward McAuliffe" in gold letters. Its date code states it was made in 1945. We restored the vacumatic filler with a new diaphragm. No cracks blemish this pen. The clip is on tightly, and the blue diamond indicated the pen was guaranteed for the life of the original owner. Barrel clarity is poor but still possible at the right angle for light to pass through. Click the headline for a close-up of the original 14k gold nib. It writes an extra-fine to fine line with a hint of vibration but not bad at all for such a nib. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 0034 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 0034: Parker: Duofold
We think this is quite possibly one of the prototypes for the Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen made c. 1925 or '26. We cannot guarantee it, but the aluminum swivel holder is the main clue, as Parker never mass produced it. It is not marked, and it was most likely custom machined. The hard rubber version of it went into production in 1926. The hard-rubber Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen is in great condition. The imprint is practically perfect, except for fading out on the very far right side. The ink feed is a "Christmas Tree." The 14k nib writes a fine-medium line. The tail is in perfect condition, and there is no brassing on its gold ring. The gold button shows no brassing. The pen base has no chips or cracks that we can see. The felt on the bottom was replaced. The pen holder is a chocolatey brown but in good working order. The spring underneath it still pushes back. This pen has been fully restored and works wonderfully. The pen measures 19cm, and the base measures 15cm X 9cm X 2cm.
