Gold Ones

I've had a Parker 65 fountain pen for more than 30 years (12ct rolled gold, English made) I recently aquired a matching ball pen and pencil for £20 each and almost instantly lost the ball pen. On looking for a replacement, I found a gold 180 fountain pen and ball pen set (made in the USA) for £40. Is this the beginning of the end? I seem to have paid a very reasonable price for the 180 set, looking at Ebay. I also have an elderly Platignum which actually writes very nicely. I hope I can successfully upload some pics.post-117325-0-26310000-1415047015_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-26777000-1415047044_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-60250100-1415047064_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-06368400-1415047090_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-40084000-1415047119_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-61414400-1415047139_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-68024000-1415047160_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-93302500-1415047184_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-81268400-1415047216_thumb.jpgpost-117325-0-20813300-1415047245_thumb.jpg Well here they are, not in the order I had hoped, and quite large. I have identified most of them, but not the Ball pen or the Pencil. Hope some one can help.. Thanks to you all for your welcome!

Very nice. Thank you. Next on your list should be a gold Parker 45.

Verweile doch, du bist so schön !

The ballpoint, second from the bottom, is not a Parker 75 (no stepping to the tassie) but your missing Parker 65 ballpoint! [Also used in Parker 61 sets.]

 

The pencil above that is, as daffie points out, a Parker 51 Custom Insignia pencil - a relatively scarce model. A matching fountain pen would be a good find. :)

There are two ways of looking at this:

 

1) You've begun a wonderful new hobby you'll enjoy for years and be able to pass on to your grandchildren

 

or:

 

2) Your wife (or significant other), solicitor and banker will soon be signing papers to put you into Bedlam for your own good. ;)

 

Enjoy, and welcome aboard from the other side of the Pond.
