Vintage Pens: 4458: Parker: Duofold Jr. Desk Pen
Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds are highly sought and beautiful working artifacts of the Roaring '20s. This Parker Duofold Jr. Desk Pen is particularly special because it has a much harder to find 14k gold "Lucky Curve" nib! Click the headline for a close-up. You'll write a very nice medium line. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Plus, it sports a "Christmas Tree" inkfeed. We do not have a desk base for you. It seems as if people either have the base or the pen but not both. Now you can finally complete your set. There is a little chocolate hazing on the section but not the taper. Unfortunately, the taper has some wear. The barrel is mostly clear. 18.2cm.

Pre-Owned Pens: 4394: Parker: Urban Set
Brighten up your desk or office by writing with this Parker Urban ballpoint pen and pencil set. We think it is new old stock. There does not appear to be any wear of any kind. The ballpoint comes loaded with a black Parker gel refill that looks full. The pencil comes preloaded with .5mm lead. The coolest part about the pencil is that the eraser is retractable! Pull out the clicker bit, and twist the bottom of the black insert under that bit to advance and retract a new, white eraser through the top of the clicker!
Vintage Pens: 4286 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $449.99
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.
Inkwells and Blotters: 3734 Parker Superchrome
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $25.00
Inkwells and Blotters: 3734: Parker: Superchrome
Vintage ink collectors will love this complete Parker Superchrome ink bottle set. Included is a 4-oz. bottle of blue ink (dried out) and the special tin that it rested in. Superchrome was a brilliant and beautiful ink that was far more vibrant than standard inks of the era. However, it was only intended for the Parker 51 with the "pli-glass" ink sacs. That which made it so vibrant was highly acidic and tore through normal ink sacs very quickly, ruining many old pens in the 1940s and '50s. It was discontinued due to its corrosive nature. We've seen a lot of Superchrome bottles over the year but this is one of the first we've seen to come complete with its tin. The tin shows a little rust and wear in places, but it isn't all that bad. EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES MIGHT APPLY DUE TO THE SIZE AND WEIGHT.
Vintage Pens: 4107 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
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
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
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: 3388 Parker 61 MK III Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3388: Parker: 61 MK III Flighter
Even the great Parker 61 saw a couple of updates in its run. The MK III Flighter was the all brushed steel version of the pen with a cartridge-converter fill system...unlike the original capillary filler. This pen comes with its original converter, but it should be able to take a modern Parker converter, too. It definitely will take modern Parker cartridges. The pen has a little wear from use. You'll write a medium line with the 14k gold nib that has a little feedback. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3969 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 3969: Parker: 51
Time to cash in on that grail pen you've always wanted, Parker 51 fans. We have a nearly mint condition Yellowstone/Mustard Yellow Parker 51. There's hardly a trace of wear outside of where the cap snugs against the hood, and even that is feint. When we opened the pen to put in a fresh diaphragm, there was nothing in the barrel. A previous owner had already given the pen as thorough a cleaning as possible. As such, we didn't install.a new diaphragm. We suspect it has seen ink at some point, as light through the pen shows some dark spots under the hood, but, holy cats, this pen is still worthy of a museum. Its gold-filled cap saw more wear. There are a few dimples and scratches. We replaced the missing top jewel with a new, reproduction jewel. Its 14k gold nib is either an extra fine or fine. It could use a really good tuning to become a daily writer, but we suspect most people will want this vintage pen as a display piece.
