  1. The other brand sections have this kind of thread, and I couldn't believe we don't have one for Parker. So here we go. What Parkers have you added to your collection lately? We have 100 years worth of pens with the Parker name, and some of us are addicted to gathering them up. I have a number of items on order, both vintage and modern, and I will mention those as they arrive over the next few weeks. But to get us started, here's the ebay photo of a P45 I just scored: Burgundy Parker 45, 14k Medium - described as NOS. In fact, that's how I found it. I was searching for gold P45 nibs

    Where To Look For A 51 Vacumatic

    I haven't ventured much into the world of vintage Parker pens, but after hearing endless good things about the 51, I am thinking of getting one. I am curious to know where you would recommend looking for one (best online stores) and what prices to look for. So far it looks like I could potentially get one for around $80 or so (looking for a regular sized vacumatic P51) but I want to make sure it is restored and in decent condition (I am looking on Ebay, but I have had some bad pen experiences on Ebay and I would want to make sure it is a good seller). So, what price should I look for with a P5

    Are Blue Diamond P-51S Worth More?

    I plan to never sell my Parker 51, nor purchase another for that matter, but I've been wondering how much it's worth. Are blue diamond Parker 51s worth more than later ones without the blue diamond. Correct me if I'm wrong, but most P51 Vacumatics have the blue diamond. The cap is gold filled, with a tiny, almost unperceivable dent, and the pen is completely restored. All the parts were cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner, and the diaphragm is new. All other parts are original. It's from the 4th Quarter of 1945. Thanks guys!!

    Box Labeled Parker 51 -- Super 21

    I've seen a couple of pens on ebay in a box labeled "Parker "51" -- Super "21". They're advertised as 21s. Does anyone know if that's what's likely to be in the box? Thanks!

    New To Me P51 (Near) New Old Stock

    Hi Gang, Just a quick note to rave on about the Parker 51 aerometric that I recently acquired, and to pose a question. As you’ll see in the picture below its stunning and as close to NOS as I've been able to find. I've long wanted an English made, Navy Grey P51 with a broad nib as it's just like the one my father bought some time back in the 50's. As a 10 year old in the mid 70's I found my father’s Parker 51 and tried to fix it for him. I'm not entirely sure what had happened to his pen up until that point, but my memory was that it wasn't filling properly and the nib was all over th
  9. Hello! At least I got a little time write. A couple of weeks ago I was looking after my first P51 and thanks to farmdogfan now I am a happy owner of this magnificent pen! The pen is a MKI aerometric with beautiful black body and lustraloy cap, there are no date marks but it has the basket clutch spring, and the black plastic ended converter so it is one of the early aerometrics (please correct me if this is not true). I have to admit that I really hated this design before (bad lasting memories from childhood using P51 fakes at school) and I was a bit afraid. And I never really liked the

    Parker 51 Questions

    Alright, I bought a P51 Aero a while ago, sold it, and now I find out that I can't live without one. I've had to make do with pencils and cheap ballpoints, but writing isn't fun. I've decided to get myself a great P51 that'll last me decades, I'm not selling it this time. I have a few questions though... #1. Aerometric vs Vacumatic This is a common topic, but here are my main concerns. I am looking at refurbished pen sites (not eBay), so the Vacumatics should work fine out of the box. However, my concerns are twofold. I don't want to ever have to experience my pen turning into a sopping inky
  11. Honestly, I’m not a P51 fan, I hate the hooded nib design but I couldn’t help taking these from the local flea market (the (in)famous Waterlooplein fleamarket in Amsterdam). Both: Approximately 13,5 cm long (capped) A sort of mother of pearl like tassie on the cap, no imprints on the cap. ETA: the caps seem aluminium but I'm not sure on that The same filling system, identified as ‘black band’. Best one: A very dark red, burgundy, I guess The somewhat faded inscription on the barrel near the barrel clutch reads: PARKER ‘51’ REG TM 540224 MADE IN ENGLAND At the point of the arrow some fini

    Parker 51 - Need Help Identifying

    I have a mystery Parker 51 in Cocoa, but I don't know which model. There are a few anomalies that I cannot figure out. The date code is 9, surrounded by the 3 dots, so I assume it is a 1949 version. The nib is gold, a firm XF. Other than these two details, nothing is as usual. When comparing with a regular 51: The silver cap is 1/8" longer The arrow is 1/8" longer The length of the barrel is shorter by 1/4" The nib section is shorter by 1/8" The cap is more tapered and has a smaller jewel on the end It looks like a 61 cap, but won't fit a 61 The overall pen length when c

    A Weird One: The Sweating P51 Sac

    Now I have a weird one for all of you: I recently bought a navy grey Aerometric filling P51 mk2. Somewhere along it's lifespan, the pli-glass sac was replaced by a latex sac. After cleaning it, in the fashion described in the pinned topic, I used it for a week with Sailor Gentle grenade. Not a single problem. I cleaned it again, and since two weeks filled it up with MB Friendship. And now it gets weird: It is like the sac is sweating. What I mean by that is everytime I use my pen for a while, a sort of mist appears on the sac in the ribbed bar hole. This mist is barely visible to the naked
