Please Help Me To Identify A FriendíS Lost Parker From His Description
Posted 16 April 2018 - 23:17
Recently he asked to borrow a pen and I offered him the Vacumatic that I had in my pocket. He remarked on it and said that he had once had a nice Parker, but he had lost it when his baggage went missing in North Africa.
I asked him to describe it; he said that it was brushed stainless steel, all over, it had come with what from his description was an Aerometric filler, but when he had sent it in for repair this had been replaced with a twist piston thing that he had liked better and the nib had, at his request, been changed from medium to fine.
Can anyone identify such a Parker? Id like to replace it for him.

Or a 75 Flighter. Or a Frontier in stainless steel. Or, or, or.
The description fits any Parker pen that took cartridges or converters and was offered in stainless steel. There were many, many such pens. Let us have some further information, if possible. The impulse is a generous one.

Anything about the nib would really help. What did it look like? I went with Parker 45 because both parts you mentioned are easily swapped.

Again the Parker piston converter is fairly modern. Those C/C filled P51s came with the old fatty Parker squeeze converters that later came with P75s and P45s.
