  1. I really know nothing about pens. My son collects fountain pens and ball point pens. He seems to like Parkers, shaeffers, water mans, and Mont Blanc. I dont typically buy him pens since I dont know enough to know what to pay. Today I came upon a Parker T1 pen and pencil set in a box. They look like they were never used. I googled T1 and found that its desireable as a fountain pen. I cant find much info about the T1 ball point. My question is, do you think this pen and pencil set would be a welcomed gift? Or is it not worth anything since its not a fountain pen. Thanks for your help.
  2. I stopped into a local thrift store a few times over the last week and picked up some nice ink. The Parker Super Quink Permanent Turquoise came new in the box in the Blue Diamond bottle and just cost me $1 on Friday. I picked up the rest of it all today for $11 and all are full bottles. Included were Parker Penman Ebony, Waterman Blue Black and Havana, and a bottle each of Mont Blanc Blue and Black. Nice finds and no repeats at a good price. No pen finds this time and the only regret was that the Parker Penman ink wasn't Sapphire Blue. It's the same shop where I found my Parker T1 and 51 pens and some other assorted finds. I'll have to meet up wth the Pen Posse to show them off some day.
  3. I sometimes love sellers who can't be bothered to take good pictures, I got this for a song. Any idea whats up with the cap jewel? It is almost the presidential seal but not quite. The sheet of paper was included with the pen and the sellers pics are also in the album if you want a laugh. Link to Album http://i.imgur.com/pGfAnjRl.jpg

    Beware All Parker T1 Enthusiasts

    http://www.ebay.it/itm/111333209645 The price is QUITE prohibitive though...
  5. I recently came across a number of vintage fountain pens and associated items over the past 2 weeks from different sources and I am invested into all of it for less than $20. After a few days of searching I discovered my best find was a rare Parker T1 Titanium pen from 1970 that I spent a full quarter for! I also have been able to acquire a Parker 21 & 51, an Osmiroid 65, a Lady Sheaffer VI Paisley pen and a Lady Sheaffer XVII Brocade pen and a few others that didn't make the picture cut. I also brought home a vintage Sheaffer Skrip Ink Bottle with ink well and a Sheaffer's dual pen desk set holder. I'm still trying to figure out the in's and outs of all of these pens and hope to get them all working soon. I didn't pick them up knowing the value but they just caught my eye. Enjoy the photos! I've been soaking the nib section of the T1 in water for a few days now and everything is clean except for what looks like some dried ink on the very tip of the writing nib. I can see it is dark with my eye and under magnification it just looks like solidified blue ink. Doing some web research I've discovered these are easily damaged so before I do something wrong I thought I should ask a few questions on how to clean that tip. With no separate nib options I gotta get it right the first time. Any suggestions would help. I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area without a local Pen shop to go to for guidance so I'm open to suggestions. Thanks! Lifeguard
