In Topic: 51 cap jewel

Thanks for the suggestion, Paul. Maybe I'll try him again-- I have one other sample from the same seller (I bought a whole replacement cap a while back) that just seems too "milky."

At least it could act as a placeholder until I'm able to find an original.

Beautiful, first gen, looks new old stock and stickered, and obviously in the wrong box-- but what is the interesting feature that I'm missing?

Well-- I'm going to disagree with you on the Parker 61-- I think it's a DJ 51 because of the shadow line apparent on the barrel tassie itself. Also think you might have an all gold-filled Sheaffer Snorkel to the right in the pic. As to the Swan-- outside of my expertise but the profiles sure look the same. Are you concerned about the color difference between barrel and cap?


Blue Conway set looks great-- and let's hope the boxes have something inside! (though that'd be like finding another ace in your hand...)

1. Thanks, David, for the link to the earlier post-- excellent information, as usual!

2. ok, wartime metal, but pre-war style? Using old tooling and stock to move items during the war?

3. white feed is wartime as well... lending credence to idea in #2?

But why the black dot?
