As a Newbie I thought I would share some pictures of some Parker Pen dealer items I inherited a few years ago but I've only just got around to sorting through.  I couldn't find any of these on a Google search so I guess they are pretty rare let along the amount of spare parts the repair kit contained.  I haven't got any idea of the manufacture date and guess the items would span quite a few decades as the shop opened in the 1850's and closed in the early 1990's when everything that was unsold was boxed up and stored.  The price tags are pre-decimalisation (1973) and the manual doesn't appear to have any dates in it or the supplements/covering letter (the cover is a bit battered but the contents are in okay condition).  

 

Any help in dating any of the items would be greatly appreciated.

 

Anyway, thought you may be interested.  I would like to scan the manual at some stage and make the PDF available (maybe uploaded to a reference section on the forum) but that will take quite some time as there are a good few hundred pages.  

 

Regards

Wow! That is really cool.

 

The plastic and some of the metal parts are for Parker 51 pens. The black case seems to have everything you would need to replace in a 51, which seem to be jewels, barrels, hoods, connectors, collectors, Vacumatic pumps and blind caps. The parts probably date to the 1940s and 1950s. The gold nibs might be for British Duofolds, which were made in the 50s and 60s. 

 

The cover letter on the front inside cover of the manual has the Royal Warrant. Queen Elizabeth II awarded Parker a warrant in 1962, so that letter could not have been made before then.

Wow, what a treasure trove.

 

Probably best to get these into a bank vault before some of the folk round here find out where you live. :lol:

I would love to see some better pictures of the repair tools.

 

I hope the repair manual can be scanned and I'd love to help if I can.
