Vintage Pens: 3085: Parker: 51
So revolutionary, it was considered 10 years ahead of its time when it was released in 1941...hence it was called the Parker 51. Using Vacumatic technology and a hooded nib, this pen held more ink than just about any pen in its day, and it was far less likely to dry out. Our Parker 51 is from the mid- to late '40s. We restored its Vacumatic filler with a new diaphragm. The blue diamond on its clip meant that it had a warranty for the lifetime of its original owner. Its gold-filled cap has a couple shallow dimples and is in good overall condition. The dove grey pen shows more wear, including some obvious scratches and scars on the nib hood or cowling. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. 13.6cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2704 Parker Duofold International Jade
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2704: Parker: Duofold International Jade
Another rare modern Parker Duofold International fountain pen graces our preowned luxury pens pages. This is the early jade green that almost mimics the discoloration of the earliest jade Duofolds in the 1920s. Unlike those, this has layers in the green with white and black flecks and a subtle glitter spread through the entire cap and barrel. Near mint condition with the exception of two really thin lines of wear on the backs of the cap bands where/when the pen rested on its side. Complete with a Parker converter. The two-tone 18k gold nib is marked medium and writes closer to a smooth, wet fine. The word Duofold is in a banner on the top cap button and on the nib. 13.1cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2717 Parker 100
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2717: Parker: 100
We fell in love so hard and fast with the Parker 100, we almost got whiplash the first time we saw it. Having successfully ridden the coattails of a modernized Duofold for more than 2 decades, Parker released this oversized, modernized reimagining of the Parker 51. The 100 is everything many modern collectors wanted in a 51. Bigger and easier to grip. It has a little more weight that builds momentum as you write. It is pretty simple to use with Parker cartridges or converters. This lovely dark blue and brushed grey colored pen comes complete with a converter. The medium nib writes a nice line. It appears to have only been used once or twice. Minimal wear. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2913 Parker Vacumatic Maxima
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $449.99
Vintage Pens: 2913: Parker: Vacumatic 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. The pen is FULLY RESTORED with a new diaphragm. 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.

Having successfully ridden the coattails of a modernized Duofold for more than 2 decades, Parker released this oversized, modernized reimagining of the Parker 51. The 100 is everything many modern collectors wanted in a 51. Bigger and easier to grip. It has a little more weight that builds momentum as you write. It is pretty simple to use with Parker cartridges or converters. This lovely misty blue and brushed gold colored pen comes complete with a converter. The medium nib writes a very smooth line. It appears to have only been used once or twice. Minimal wear, but it does have a long thin, shallow scratch that runs longer than an inch on the brushed gold of the cap. It doesn't dig deep, but it is visible. 14.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2705 Parker 75 Independence Hall
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 2705: Parker: 75 Independence Hall
Why on earth would a Parker 75 come in pewter, with a wooden disc in the top of the cap? 1776! Now that's the spirit! This is an American Bicentennial celebration Parker 75. On the cap is the factory engraved: "Wood in this limited edition pen is a relic of Independence Hall Philadelphia - 1776". A believe the pewter is a tribute to Sam Adams: metal smith, brewer and patriot. You won't find a dent in the pen. There's only light surface wear, if any. Sorry. We don't have the original box and papers. However, we are reasonably sure this is an authentic original. The section collar has hash marks to help align the nib best with your grip. The section has plastic threads. It comes with an original working converter. You can use modern Parker converters and cartridges with this pen. We do not think the pen has been inked. Inkfeed indicates a medium nib. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3036 Parker Vacumatic

Era: 1930-1939
Price: $299.99
SOLD!
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.

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.
