Vintage Pens: 3162 Parker VP
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3162: Parker: VP
Parker VP fountain pens led the way for many new innovations for Parker in the 1960s. Only made for a couple years, these vintage pens introduced the adjustable nib that would be much more famous on the Parker 75, which replaced this pen in the line-up. It also experimented with the converter fill system. Although the pen says you can remove the aerometric-style converter, we highly recommend against it. The clear glass/plastic viewing window at its base is very fragile. Light wear afflicts the pen, but it isn't too bad for a daily user. No dents but the cap might look a little scratched up to some. The 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine line. Its cap closes all the way, but it doesn't take a lot of effort to slip it back off. 13.7cm 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: 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.
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.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2718: 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 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.
