    Parker 51 For A Buck And 4 Bits..

    Hi Guys and Gals.. I don't know a ton about vintage pens beside what I've learned here and a few websites .. and only have a few in my growing collection and hope to get a few more.. I did pick this up in a under $2.00 box plus 3 other vintage pens found in the very bottom of a ton of junk.. Gang can you tell me if I'm on the right track here it's has the markings on the Cap that read 1/10 16k gold filled made in the U.S.A.) does this really mean gold Plated ? then it says on the barrel it self Parker 51 with a small number 8 with NO DOTS next to it ..( does this mean 1948 4th quarter ?) this is only info I got on the parker51 site.? the Cap has a Blue diamond and 1 jewel ... it seems to write as a fat medium but I'm not to sure because I love Pilot pens and everything seems fat.. also it's been holding about 1.4 mil of ink on a fill ( vac pump back under the blind cap ) for about a week now i've been using it with no leaks and color would be DOVE GRAY ? or am I off here? Can you tell me if I'm on the right train of research here ? some scuff marks on the barrel and two dings on the cap.. writes super smooth with a hint of feedback.. Is it worth anything so I can tell my wife my obsessive compulsive personality disorder Fountain pen interest is a thing she just might have put up with a bit longer ( just kidding ) ? thanks gang and I do appreciate all the help and fun this board has given me Any thoughts or info would be beyond amazing ! Sorry for the big pictures still learning how to post here my blog . and I make puppets . http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qyqce0O8wYI/VSoKa-3iucI/AAAAAAAAAbQ/M6Thjjdds2I/s1600/parker-51-a.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-koThSzT2cTg/VSoKauWzFoI/AAAAAAAAAbU/0JFXac3Ssfo/s1600/parker-51-b.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Bq6p7MwskKU/VSoKavmod8I/AAAAAAAAAbM/kkqlgC_7wWE/s1600/parker-51-c.jpghttp://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1qJHsXCyno0/VSoKbsH1MGI/AAAAAAAAAbo/TiAM_ZEoQYM/s1600/parker-51-d.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7qpVcduKJQk/VSoKb4pfSmI/AAAAAAAAAbk/KQ5HSrKJpJQ/s1600/parker-51-e.jpg
  2. Hi guys, Lord Z here with a pen I found on a park bench. (FOUND ANSWER TO FIRST PARAGRAPH) The pen has "Colibri" stamped around the base of the cap, just like it should. It resembles very old Colibri models, and uses an oil ink, in a discontinued tube. I cannot find a fit, however, so if you can figure out what it is, that would be great. This pen is a Colibri Le Grande in burgundy. It has a little bit of ink dried onto the cap, as well as scuff marks. I need to figure out if there is a way to deal with this, and how to get more ink. As recap (No pun intended), I need to figure out what model this pen is and anything else you can find on it, like price point, and how to clean it. One more question: is it sin to replace a ballpoint cartridge with a compatible rollerball? Thanks. Thanks, Lord Z
  3. Hi Everyone, I'm a fledgling pen collector, and I recently took a risk at a local flea market: I bought an unmarked pen for $15. The pen has a really nice weight to it (1.2 oz) and it has a screw top and when the top is removed, it screws onto the bottom (see pictures). This makes me think it could be something special. But I can find no marking on the pen (nothing on the inside of the clip, either). Can anyone help me identify this pen? If you need any other picture angles, please let me know. Even if its nothing brand-name, it's still a pretty cool pen. Thank you all for your help! I appreciate you all!
  4. Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Years are stunning. the size and proportions are almost perfect. I also love the fact that they come in extremely exotic and rare materials. However, the ones with my favourite materials are too round. The 2014 one is nice, but it's too gold... I really like ebony wood and the GvFC Classic and Intuition come in that material, but the Classic is too thin and the Intuition is too fat. I love the gold lined nib and external feed on the Intuition, but the nib shape is odd. I also like matte black. The Omas Paragon and Parker Premier come in stealth, but I hate the guilloche on the Omas and apart from the stealth, the Parker's kinda meh. Sorry if you're a fan of those. Sterling silver and titanium are also nice materials, but the Yard-o-Leds are too silver and I can't find many pens in titanium. Oak's a nice wood, but I only know of one pen in this material and I don't think it's my grail. As you can see, the most important aspect of a fountain pen, to me, is the looks. It probably shouldn't be. The material is also what attracts me to a pen. I'm definitely being way too nitpicky with these pens. Of course I can't get my grail pen even if I discover it, because I don't even have the funds. Thanks for reading Sorry if I annoyed you.
  5. First post on FPN in over a year for me. My life has taken several unexpeced turns, but I am now back! Here's the story: I went antiquing in Québec city last friday, searching for vintage pens and antique bottles. After three unsuccessful attempts I finally find an antique store that has some fountain pens. There were three or four celluloid Watermans (two of them had damaged nibs, a very small streamline Duofold (Lady?) in need of a new sac, a Waterman #12, a Sheaffer Touchdown with stripped blind cap threads, an Esterbrook SJ and last but not least, a Parker set in a black faux-suede pen slip. I was intrigued by the set. I pulled the pen out, only to see the shimmer of the sterling silver grid pattern. Both the pen and the ballpoint were in excellent condition with little tarnish. The price asked was 125$, but after a few minutes of haggling I left the store with the set and my wallet 90$ lighter. Back home, I filled it with water, and it wrote perfectly with the rehydrated ink still in the original converter.
