CONTEST!
Permalink Closed


Ok time for this weeks contest. It's very simple, guess what the pen is, model size, name and manufacturer, and it's yours.

This is a vintage pen manufactured in the mid to late 1940's. The barrel is black, the cap a silver tone. It's a lever filler (silver/chrome colored) The pen has a semi flex medium/broad semihooded nib. It's a smaller pen, 4 9/16" capped, 5 5/16" posted & 1/2" at the cap band. Slip cap & a 'minimalist' 2 line imprint.

The rules for this one are very simple.

You can make a guess every 2 posts past your last guess. If there aren't many guesses to start off with, then you can guess every 5 hours until someone scores the pen.


I'll answer any questions I can to help you narrow it down.

Good luck & lets have some fun!

Dennis

If your not too familiar with model names or vintage pens in general, I'd suggest taking a look at our catalog/advertisement gallery or any of the superb reference sites out there like Penhero.com, Richardspens.com, vintagepens.com.

Remember.

The answer needs to be the exact size, model name & manufacturer to win.

Close doesn't count.

Good luck all!

Nope not a Universal V250.

The V250 a standard 5" pen if I recall correctly, I could be wrong, It's been a while since I've seen one.

Good luck & keep 'em coming.

There have been some great guesses so far.

If we don't have a winner by Midnight (central US time) I'll drop another clue or hint.

Good luck gang!

Is it a Parker Parkette? It was introduced in 1950, so that's a bit later than you revealed :)

. That was a good guess.

I'd forgotten about those. The only lever filler that parker made IIRC. Chrome lever, silver colored metal cap, semi hooded nib. It all fits but for the date & size.

LOl, no where close, but it was a good guess. You took the clues & applied them where they almost fit. Keep on that track & you guys will get it.

Good luck. Next clue in about 7 1/2 hours at midnight my time.

Ok hint time.

Using the alphabet and #'s 1-26.

(A=1 B=2 C=3 D=4 and on down to Y=25 Z=26. )

The letters in the name of the manufacturer equal 114.

Make sense? Aa'ight then.

Good luck!
Dennis
