Pre-Owned Pens: 3037 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3037: Parker: Duofold
Glittering blue waves wash through the beautiful marbling of this modern era Parker Duofold ballpoint pen. This is an earlier model with the unmarked black disc in the flat tail piece. It was a daily user, but it only features light wear from use. No cracks or deep scratches. It comes with a working blue Parker refill. 13cm.
Vintage Pens: 3036 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3036: Parker: Vacumatic
Rare red marbled Parker Vacumatics are pretty hard to find these days, but we proudly restored this one to excellent working order. It has great barrel clarity, in addition to a new diaphragm. Yes, one Albert Vannucci purchased this pen in 1937. Yet, it shouldn't be enough to make one turn their nose up a this hard-to-find double jewel design. There are no cracks! A few scratches and wear from use are visible. The clip has brassing and some wavy wear, which is very visible in the photo when you click the headline. Still, the clip is on tightly, and the rest of the pen is pretty nice. The 14k gold nib writes a nice medium line with only light feedback, particularly on high ascenders and deep descenders. Considered a "major" compared to an oversized "Maxima," it is much wider than the 1940s Vac Majors. 12.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3034 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3034: Parker: 51
Double-jewel Parker 51s seem to get more and more difficult to find at affordable prices, but we have a classic black one with a sterling silver cap ready for you. Hailing from 1942, this vintage pen classic has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. The hood has some scratches visible in the photo. Click the headline for a better view. The blind cap is only slightly off its alignment. The silver cap is especially nice. In spite of some wear spots, there are no dents. The blue diamond on the clip indicates it had a lifetime warranty for the life of its original owner. The original 14k gold nib looks a little wonky under a loupe, but it writes a very nice fine-medium line. No cracks. A great daily writer. 13.6cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3033 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3033: Parker: Duofold
We can't get enough of the modern Parker Duofolds with a pearlescent cap and body threaded by a black vein. This is an early version of the rollerball Duofold. The flat-top cap button has a spiralgraph design. Some of the blacking is out of the design. The pen only has light wear, but the cap and barrel show a little yellowing to the finish. No cracks. There's a ring of rubbing wear around the raised center of the main cap ring. We gave the pen a new Parker rollerball refill. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2919 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 2919: Parker: Duofold
Click the headline to see the really rare cap band on this 1942 Parker Duofold. A square decorates then band with a diagonal shape that looks a little like a surf board! It is a standard size model, neither oversized or junior. It has a blind cap tail ring, too! We restored the pen with a new diaphragm. We also lined up the speedline filler so the blind cap is flush with the barrel. The barrel is a darkened amber with some good clarity. The imprint is strong with a 1942 date code. The 14k gold nib is a little warped, writing an extra fine line with a little feedback. No cracks are in the pen, but it has some wear, though nothing egregious. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2913 Parker Maxima
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $449.99
Vintage Pens: 2913: Parker: Maxima
Fenway Park has the Green Monster, and Parker seemed to try creating one of its own with this green Parker Vacumatic Maxima. Almost as wide as a Montblanc 149, at its widest point, the Maxima actually has a smaller, easier-to-handle, section for gripping. The pen is remarkably free from major wear. There's one shallow dimple in the blind cap and a few light scratches. The imprint is strong, and the pen has a 1942 date code. The cap jewel is made from the same striped celluloid as the barrel. The aluminum speedline filler has some wear but it moves easily. As is, the pen is UNRESTORED. The nib is actually marked "14k / Parker / Vacumatic." It writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2910 Parker 51 Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 2910: Parker: 51 Flighter
Industrial design lifts the Parker 51 Flighter into the modern age of the 1950s. The all-metal Parker 51 is a slightly rarer treat from that line of pens. NO DENTS! It has some shallow light wear here and there, such as where the cap rubbed against the barrel, but the overall condition is pretty nice. It has a still-working aerometric filler. The 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line with an acceptable amount of feedback. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2911 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 2911: Parker: Duofold
The rarest of the Parker Duofold colors is the sunny Mandarin yellow. This is a working senior size mandarin Parker Duofold pencil in the also rare streamlined design. Free from cracks and major wear, the only real problem is a little brassing on the ball of the clip and on the clip band. The 1.1mm lead advances and retracts with a twist of the tail cap. There is no eraser left, although you can make your own to fit the space where it would go. 13cm.
