Vintage Pens: Parker Challenger

Vintage Pens: 2661 Parker Challenger
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
The green marble celluloid of this Parker Challenger's cap and barrel are pristine in color with minimal wear. Even the inner cap looks mostly clean. We'd love to call this pen New Old Stock, but some blemishes on the cap band and the wrong nib prevent us from doing so. Nevertheless, this vintage pen is gorgeous. We restored this standard-sized button-filler with a new ink sac. Although it seems to have the correct inkfeed, the 14k gold nib looks like a Vacumatic nib, not a Challenger nib. Still, the nib writes a buttery smooth fine line! Really strong imprint with a 45 date code. 12.8cm capped.
