Pens for Sale (Last updated : 28 September 2018)

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).

Parker 51 Red Band Button Filler Test Pen

Offering up this super rare and special Parker 51 test pen with red band filler. There is only one other pen like this that I have seen, sold some time back by Parker51.com. The Redband Filler test pen had silver threads that were not colored red.  Made for only one year, rare pen.
 
The pen is in good condition overall with microscratches to the body and lustraloy cap, as well as some brassing to the clip. The blind cap is short and has a small hole in it per what the literature tells you it should have. There are no engravings, personalisations or date codes.
 
I have NOT ever attempted to depress the filling button on the end given how fragile these filling systems are, so have no idea if it works or how it writes. That’s hardly the point though, as this is a fabulous specimen for the 51 enthusiast. $800 AUD

Parker 51 Cordovan Brown Double Jewel Fountain Pen

Offering up this excellent and rare 1945 Parker 51 double jewel fountain pen in Cordovan Brown, with lovely gold filled cap.The pen was professionally restored almost three years ago and has been sitting in my display case since then. The pen fills well since its restoration. The nib is a nice fine size per the photos.


The pen is dated the third quarter of 1945 with a clear imprint “PARKER 51 MADE IN USA 5.”. The  gold filled cap is in good condition with sets of four parallel lines and does not have any noticeable dents/dings. It has an imprint of “1/10 16K gold filled made in USA” near the cap lip. The cap lip has a little very small spot of brassing/scrape as pictured. The clutch ring has an excellent amount of gold fill still as a testament to the limited use this pen has had. The cap and blind cap jewels are good with only a little bit of brassing to the blind cap tassie. There are a couple of micro spots of ink stain on the hood shell. There are no personalisations and only micro-scratches on the barrel. $500 AUD

Parker 51 Half Demonstrator Demi Fountain Pen

Check out this rare 1951 half demonstrator aerometric fill demi, in burgundy. The pen is in mint, new, never used condition with only small signs of storage wear. The demi is much, much harder to find in half demonstrator than the full size aerometric. The pen has a brushed lustraloy cap that is in mint condition and retains its original finish excellently.
 
The pen has never been used but sports a medium nib. Note the Aerometric model is taller than the Vacumatic model.
 
All in all an excellent specimen that will hold a special place in your collection. $525 AUD
