Hi All- I am writing hoping that the P-'51' experts here can answer a few questions for me, I got a '51' Demi Signet a few months ago and it's a beautiful pen, but I have a couple of things I was wondering about. I have looked around and have the '51' book but couldn't find answers, so I thought I would ask here. Sorry if I missed a place that answers my questions. My Demi Signet was made in 1949. It has the hoop filler-is this correct for this pen? I just saw this one that just sold on 'that' auction site and it's from 1948 and has a hoop filler, so I'm thinking it must be correct for my pen, but just wanted to be sure. Here's the one that just sold: http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-parker-51-vacumatic-fountain-pen-rolled-gold-1-10-14k-gold-filled-/261875362455?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cf8fcea97&nma=true&si=sFp8SwCSohMlA6yGzYs0%252BH80WGw%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 A couple of other questions are, mine has a plastic breather tube-would that have been originally on my pen from 1949? Last is the nib-I have a few (okay a bunch of demis, as I am addicted to these) and have not seen a nib like this yet. Is this a needlepoint? I tried to take good pictures, but realize they may not be good enough for you to tell, but I thought I would ask... Thanks for reading and for any help!!!
blackboxone posted a topic in ParkerHello guys, I've seen on a website a beautiful Parker 51 insignia manufactured in England with pretty good condition and I was about to place the order. The only question I've got is that the pen comes with a single-tone clutch ring (white-metal). I suppose an insignia/signet should come with a double-tone clutch ring with gold-plated middle recess, is that correct? Please give some advices on this one! Thanks a lot!
