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.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
