Ended up with the following early parker pen which was recently purchased via ebay. Unfortunately this does not carry any numbers at the base of the barrel like the other old parker's that i have. just wondering what model this one is? Any help is greatly appreciated.
imprint looks rather old with the two patent dates.. imprint looks fairly sharp and chasing is all there, but the pen is really badly discolored. Color has turned to a muddy yellow.
Feed is a normal lucky curve style and extends a fair bit in to the barrel. it doesn't have the xmas tree cutouts. just a plain early feed.
Imprint on the nib reads as follows
I haven't managed to pull out the nib . so I am not sure if there is a number as such. Shape of the cutout is rather weird. unfortunately nib needs re-tipping.
This pen is a bit thicker than my other vintage parkers from this period. Almost the same size as a vintage onoto. its a bit longer than parker 51.
Any help trying to identify this early parker is greatly appreciated.
