In Topic: Parker 51 pencil

LL is normally a marking for Parker's liquid lead pencils. The pencil is right except for the earlier cap which I would think is a replacement.

Capitol was an Aikin Lambert brand. You can see the pen takes its direct styling from a Waterman 52

Nice Eclipses Ariel, as you know being from Toronto they do turn up from time to time. I'm personally quite partial to their Monroe pens.

Thanks Brian. The pen is called a Moore Banker, from what I can tell this is the largest size they made it in a #6 size. Interestingly enough it is not a thumb filler, you place your thumb in the slot while screwing on and off the cap to help protect the nib from otherwise potentially being damaged.

I suppose it's about time I post my pens of 2015, I promised Brian I would today!
There was a theme for 2015, Grieshabers & Hard Rubber. I collect larger Grieshaber pens, and the vast majority of my collection consists of pens from the 1920's through 1940's. I was able to add a few examples this year, all with large #8 Grieshaber or Sager nibs. I also added a couple of gorgeous Moore Safety pens and a Snapfil pen marked General Manufacturing. Not a huge group from 2015 but some pens that just don't come up too often.
