Parker 88/Rialto - only come in gold trim?

10 May 2014 - 12:12 PM

I've been doing a lot of looking into the Parker 88, which looks like a precursor to the Vector styling.


Can anyone confirm that it only came in gold trim? I haven't yet seen any variants with chrome trim. Thanks!

parker 51, 61, or 21 nib size determination

29 April 2014 - 05:48 PM

I have been trying to tell the size of my parker 51, 61, or 21 pen nib. Is there any way you can distinguish, without dismantling the front hood section (which i have read requires heat, etc)?


On the parker 45, you can just look at the underside of the nib, and there is a marking M, F, X- any tips for distinguishing these hooded pens?

Can anyone post a clear picture of the differences between the flat top Parker 25 and the dimpled top Parker 25 FP? Thanks!

Parker 51 fountain cap finishes

22 April 2014 - 07:44 PM

Dear All:


Was doing some investigating into Parker 51 fountain pen variants.


I have a Parker 51 mark II, and the cap metal is a very polished chrome-like steel.


I have seen many pictures of other Parker 51 caps, in which the finish is not polished, but more like satin-appearing. Is this an illusion, or is the metal more like a brushed stainless steel, like that of the majority of parker flighters, like the 45, the 61, and the 75?


Thanks very much,


Wanted: Parker Classic Fountain pen, flighter model, chrome trim
