A few more sweet Parkers I've had in my clutches.

One of my first attempts at converting a beater lined sterilng in to a Smooth Sterling cap for a 51. They got much better, the more I did.




Sweet Buckskin 51 set.





Minty fresh Rage Red VS








Rage Red VP. The clip on this one is incorrect, it should be the smooth 'plain' style also found on Challengers. The caps on these are the same as on a 51. The only difference is the clip.







Custom Sterling Silver Sergio Kullock (Ariel Kullocks cousin) Parker 51 in the waterfall pattern.




Sadly, these pens had a habit of cracking on the back side of the cap lip. This one fell victim to it as well. Then I had a local Jeweler try to solder/weld it back together & nthe assclown 1000% ruined it. So I had to go wth one of my custom smooth sterling caps.

wish I could find a golden web pen, I just really like the pattern. Closest I found was a German no-name that had a similar grey pattern.

I'll keep my eyes open for one for you. I'll be going to LA in Feb 2K10. may find one there. Whats your budget for one of these? Condition & nib size/style requirements?

Actually that's the rub- don't know what the going rates are for the pen so I could not say!

superb pens. Did you ever had a lapis or a jade green duofold that was sent to you for repair?

I've had several dozen over the years that belonged to clients. I don't photograph their pens though, only ones I've traded for or bought myself.
