Good morning,

My name is Andrea and I calling in from Montreal, Canada.

 

I am a small time collector of fountain pens (and others). I try to limit my collection to Italian pen, OMAS in particular, perhaps because I was made in Bologna too, and I am plenty vintage if not quite antique yet.

 

Just yesterday a connection in Italy offered me this pen to buy. It is a Parker Presidential, apparently solid gold. I know nothing ,OK near nothing about Parker and my search of the net was not satisfactory.

 

Can someone out there illuminate us all about these rarer, I am told Parkers and this one in particular. I would like to know on what serial model it is based on, year of production, number produced, general rating and market value.

 

Thanks, and if I get it I will write a review.

Regards, Andrea B.P.

I am by no means an expert on Parker pens but the pictures appear to show a regular 51 with a gold cap and a Presidential box. The Presidential solid gold 51's have a gold cap AND body.

As others have said the pen is alien to the Presidential box. Pen looks to have a gold filled (not a solid gold) cap.

 

And the model is Parker 51 from approximately late 1940s - 1950s.
