I have a user-grade black Parker 61 (the aerometric version) and I'd like it to go to a student. So, if interested please send me a PM stating what you study and where by Saturday. I'll decide who gets it on Sunday and ship it on Monday. 

 

The usual restrictions apply: you are expected not to sell this pen but to PIF it to the next user.

Not an entry.

 

I thought the Parker 61 was the one with the capillary filler, and the little arrow inset over the nib.  Are you sure that's what you have, if it's an aerometric filler?

Early 61s were capillary fillers, but people found them troublesome, so they switched.

EMQG is right: later 61s had aerometric fillers. In my experience this also gives them a better flow.

Wish I were able to travel back in time to the 1960s when I was in school. :)

The C/C filler 61s were made only in England. I would avoid calling these C/C 61s as aerometric.

To all who contacted me: many thanks for your interest. I wish I had more than one 61s to give away. The lucky winner has already been notified.
