Parker 61 Cap "jewel"
Permalink Closed


I recently got my first 61. This pen had a screw (I mean literally, a minature brass screw in the cap where a jewel should be) in the top of the cap. After some research, I discovered that this is probably the model that did have a screw type jewel in the cap!

My question is, aside from who has one, is what did it look like. Richard describes it on his site as
"the Mark III has a 75-style washer clip (inset into a notch in the cap) that is secured by a conical all-metal screw." I'm sure this was a jewel quality non-sloted stainless/chrome screw. The one that is in my pen is a machinist minature brass sloted screw!

Thanks for any help and/or info on this! The pen is nice otherwise, and the capillary filler works!

Frank

Richard wrote me back to give me info and a description of this "jewel".
It turns out that it is similar to a 51 jewel. I was not aware that these were "screw-in" type jewels! If anyone has a screw-in type 51/61 jewel to spare, let me know!

Frank

PS- Thanks again Richard!
