    Parker Ballpoint Hexagonal Barrel

    Member - Gold 79 posts Flag: I thought this might be the best forum to look for info. concerning a writing implement, namely an hexagonal ballpoint which I think was rolled gold. I bought it from this site many years ago as it appealed to me due to its shape which of course reminded me of a pencil. I had it for a couple of years and used it regularly for crosswords which I did to while away the time whilst travelling. I had to travel a lot in those days both on business and leisure and finally left it on a plane. As soon as I realised what I had done ( the next day when I went to use it ), I rang the airport who said the plane had been cleaned the night before and nothing was handed in. I think it was a Parker but have no recollection of the clip design ,whether it was twist cap or depress, nor in fact any detail other than its hexagonal barrel. Does anyone have any idea what model this might have been, bearing in mind that it was an old pen when I bought it.
  3. On The Cap: Rolled Gold Made In England On The Barrel Above Clip Band: Whetham London Is Whetham The name of the company that made the pencil? In the cartouche is COLFIX I believe that is an advertiser Any help with identification appreciated

    A Noobish Question

    Hello everybody, today i bought a pen from flea market which is old and dirty but working, i will clean it soon. I am a Pelikan guy and a total noob about Watermans but it writes Waterman's ideal 18k on the cap and 42 on the bottom and i think it's a safety pen. It would be perfect if you can confirm the model and give me some info about it's history, i don't know maybe the the dates of the production. And also can you give me an average value cause if my guess about the model is true i've seen it's price range between 250 dollars to 2500 dollars . Thanks for your help and an apology for the very low quality of the photos already.
  5. The self-filler is a New York pen from about (I would guess) 1924. It is fitted with a Pat. 1915 clip. The leverless was a bit of a pain; English from about 1933, its internal mechanism had rusted away and the fact that it is thinner than the standard leverless pens of the period (e.g. L200/60) made the repair trickier than it might have been. And of course the nib was bent too. Anyway it works now and as I hope the writing shows, it was worth straightening the nib! The colour difference is interesting I think, the New York pen being quite a bit darker; perhaps there was more "gold in the rolling"? Rgds Cob.
