The day after I purchased the six Argentine 45s, the seller informed me that nothing is shipping right now from there to the U.S.  So, he'll ship when he can, or I'll get refunded if I can't wait.  Same situation in Germany; nothing going to the U.S. for now.

The back of the blister packs are totally blank.

The more 45s I see from Argentina, the more little variations I see. All of the strange 45s I have are from there. I can only guess that Parker kept loose reigns on that factory and chose to let them run things a little different.

An extra difficulty is that pen parts made by the Argentina Parker subsidiary have been mixed with the 'fantasy Parker' barrels that were made by Kullock after closing down of the Argentina factory.

Your blister packs at least show that these pens are genuine Parker items.


I also wonder whether we should catalog these Argentina made Parker "Beta" pens as Parker 45 ballpoints or rather as 'belonging to the Parker 45 family'.

I don't see these Betas as "Classic" 45s. I lump then into another category that only 45 collectors would find interesting to 45 history. That group includes Ariel Kullocks, Hero 800s, Moonman 80s, Wilson Coronets, etc. None of these are "Classic" 45s but their existence make 45 collecting more exciting.
