We don't normally showcase a vintage pen fully disassembled, but we wanted to show off this Parker 61 that looks as if it is somewhat new old stock. We thought it was a daily user be cause it had several cracks in the barrel and the hood was missing a chip near the nib. When we tried unscrewing the barrel the hood unscrewed and revealed a pristine ink collector. As it had so much damage we already were selling it for parts, but maybe it is in better shape than we credited it...at least the parts are. Includes an original 14k gold nib that looks fine but we didn't want to dip it and mess up the ink collector. Click the headline for a close-up of this vintage pen. 13.5cm capped.
