I will save everyone seeing these for a third time, but I love your vintage Parkers and the way you display them. I hazard to go back before 1920, both financially and knowledge-wise. The 42 1/2 with the gold is stunning. Thanks to everyone for sharing their collections.

Here is my Duofold drawer, with a few others scattered about.

and a Duofold with gold:

Hi George,

Those 51s - the top is a 47 Cedar Blue Vac and the bottom is a 49 Black.

I'm a bit of a 'jack of all trades' when it comes to pens, but Parker is my favourite maker. My collection reflects my magpie-like collecting patterns:


61 and 65 Flighters with International BP


65 Insignia Set and 51 Insignia FP


61 Insignia Set


My meagre Vac collection


51 Set with rolled silver caps (my grandfather's)


75 Cisele Set


75 Silver plate Grain d'Orge FP & 75 Gold plate Godron Set with flat tassies


17, 180, Duofold Centennial


Flaminaire cigarette lighter!

Since this thread has revived itself...............
These were some Parker EDs taken a few years ago - the one on the left is actually a sliptop button filler and the colours are not as bad as the flash has made them.

I was going to take a pic of my modest little collection of Parkers, but I think my wife snuck off with my camera!

This one has been my favorite for the past week....

The photo was taken with a, somewhat, hacked together outfit... Its a Canon Digital Rebel (300d) with an EOS/M42 adapter attached to a Pentax auto bellows. The auto bellows has a 100mm f4 bellows Takumar lens on it. If I remember right, the pic was shot at f22 and 5 seconds from approximately 25cm. The extra length really makes a difference with macro stuff!

Thought I would add a few more since the thread is alive again.

New to the collection is a Jack Knife Baby 20 with a gold cap band and an SAE crest on it

Three types of Parker clips. From left: Van Valkenberg clip from 1907-1908, Disappearing clip from 1908-1915, Washer clip starting 1915 but patented in 1916 (the clip date is wrong)

Parker number 1 in red mottled hard rubber

My only artistic shot, which I titled "New and Old". Vintage and modern Duofolds with old style and new style pistols

Please take a look at my "Pens for sale" page here.
