Beyond the "mini collection" angle here are a few more thoughts and details for Parker specific fans.

 

Most (I wouldn't presume to say all) of the typical Parkette Deluxe colors (plus a bonus) of the early trim variety fountain pens.

No pencils, and no ring tops - I quit the field in deference to Brian there, but perhaps we could get the turquoise ones along with the pencil I've got for a four way picture some time.

Both sizes in some cases.

Most have the "Plat Plt" nib and USA imprints.

No idea WHAT the heck is going on with that larger gray one with both a lever and room for a button, so I'll just call it a fanciful placeholder for now.

Hi,

Lovely collection.  

 

I believe I know what the heck is going on with the gray pen. ;)

 

I'll be there is no button, but more of a "dummy" button. Threaded, perhaps...

 

regards

Precisely - just the threads the cap goes on with a hole where you would expect a filler system to be.  What is the answer?

FarmBoy, I don't know what you mean. 

 

Could this have been originally sold as part of a desk set?

Thanks for the education.  So based on that I will promote it from fanciful placeholder to a full member.
