Pens for Sale

Every so often I have collectables that are in surplus to my requirements and are listed for sale below. All prices are expressed in Australian Dollars ($AUD).

First Year Parker Duofold Centennial – Black & Gold 14k Nib

A very early 1st Generation Parker Duofold Centennial in the black with a super rare 14k gold nib.

The pen is in excellent to near mint condition and has been only very lightly used. As mentioned it has a rare 14 karat nib marked ’51’, which translates to either medium or broad size. It features short flat clip, flat barrel gold bands and a PC date code meaning it is a first year 1987 pen. The imprint / marking is nicely visible. There are some usual handling and storage marks to the pen, with light swirls to the trim and resin, nothing too bad. The cap thread has a little bit of tightness when getting to fully closed.

All in all a rare pen you won’t see very often. $375 AUD

Tray of Parker Duofold Demi’s
I am unfortunately needing to move on my collection of rare Parker Duofold Mini’s / Demi’s. The limited time these were available for have made collectability pretty high and prices are only going up, so I don’t think you will find an almost complete set like this again.

Parker 51 Double Jewel Fountain Pen with First Year Cap
A classic Parker 51 double jewel fountain pen in India Black with first year cap.

The pen is dated the first quarter of 1942 with a clear imprint and it has a first year cap complete with a high imprint and rare scalloped line pattern. The imprint ” 1/10 of 14K gold filled made in USA” is near the edge of the top of the cap. The imprint “PARKER 51 MADE IN USA 2” with three dots for first quarter is as sharp as new. The cap date discrepancy appears common in the early production 51’s with the Parker factory utilising the caps on hand for the second year pens (first production year was 1940/1941). The clutch ring has an excellent amount of gold fill still as a testament to the limited use this pen has had.

The pen was professionally restored almost three years ago and has been sitting in my display case since then. As such, the filler sac will need replacing as it doesn’t draw much liquid when tested with water. The nib is a nice fine size per the photos. The cap and blind cap jewels are excellent and aside from some microscratches on the barrel and cap, the pen is in excellent overall condition

$525 AUD
