  1. My not-quite-mother-in-law asked me to identify this Parker pen she's had amongst her antiques. Problem is, I'm not really sure what it is. It's short. About 118mm, I think. I'm not sure if it's a sub junior, a debutante or something else. And I can't figure out what year it'd be. thoughts? The gold cardboard box in the photos might help, too... Thanks, all!
  2. Hi all. I recently acquired a vintage BCHR pen on which the imprint has been worn clean away and which has a rather unique combination of elements I've never seen before. Firstly, it isn't a lever fuller as it has a hole in the back, which seems to indicate that it was either originally made as a blow filler or modified into one (though the hole looks very well-machined), yet the section unscrews like it would on an eyedropper. The pen also has a slip fit cap rather than a threaded one, and it's fitted with a nib marked "Sheaffer Junior, Made in USA". Is there any way of possibly identifying w
  3. Hello again to all my FP friends, I've got two English-made Parker Duofold Juniors from the 1950s, both bought from different sellers in different countries. One has a medium nib and the other a broad oblique stub nib and both are the smoothest nibs imaginable. I mean, ridiculously butter smooth with some nice softness to boot. However, they both have are extremely dry writers that won't write at all unless some pressure is applied. I've tried improving flow by using a brass shim to open up the tines a little and it has helped some, but I'm just wondering if this is a common trait of UK Duof
  4. Hello there, I have just restored this 1st generation Parker Vacumatic Junior in Mottled Silver Pearl Celluloid with the Gold trim rather than the usual Silver trim. The pen is in extra fine condition with no brassing and excellent transparency... This reverse trim Vacumatics are pretty rare but this one seems a bit odd. This is because the imprint seems to date the pen to the first quarter of 1940 – as 0 and the three dots indicate. But as far as I know the 1st generation Junior was made only until 1938… Under extreme magnification the 0 might be possibly interpreted a

    Sold As A Slimfold But Has No 10 Nib?

    Hello everyone! I'm hoping someone can clarify for me. Last night, I made a Best Offer on two pens on eBay being sold together. One was a Parker 25 which didn't massively interest me (til I read the reviews which made me think I might like this pen even if it looks a bit like a 1980s' Eastern European car)... What I was after was a black Slimfold. Recently I got a blue Slimfold and it might be a boring looking pen, but the nib is way and above my favourite so I decided to get a Slimfold in each of the colours. Just before I made the Offer I looked more closely at the predictably blurry pic
  7. Hi all. Thought I'd post my fledgling Parker collection - it's mostly vintage(ish) with a few new ones that I've found at a good price. I'm looking to complete the set of UK Duofolds in blue - I can't get enough of them. I've also included a scan of the paper so you can see why I love Quink blue black, red and green so much. Anyway, sorry not sorry for the self indulgent post! http://i.imgur.com/e5EYPX4.jpg
  8. I gave my UK Duofold Junior aero a good clean today and the black plastic stick you can see in the foreground fell out of the ink sac while I was rinsing it. What is it? Should I put it back in when I reassemble? Ta in advance!
  9. Hi everyone! I recently found this pen in my grandfather's basement, and have been trying to figure out which model it is exactly. It is sadly missing the cap so, basically, I just want to know what the heck to call this pen so I can start buying parts for it or send it off for restoration. It has no identifying marks on the barrel, but 'Parker Fountain Pen, Canada 14K' is on the nib. After some research I have narrowed it down to (maybe--these are all guesses made by an amateur!) either a Duofold Junior (Deluxe?) or a Juniorette. It is a button fill. The pen itself is very small, similar
