Parker 61

Parker introduced the '61' in the U.S.A. in 1956 and changed to an aerometric filler in 1969, this pen is a capillary filler.

In designing the Parker 61 pen Parker made the curious decision to add an 'arrow' to the top of the hood as they were of the opinion that their customers would not otherwise know which way up to hold the pen!  Inevitably the arrows frequently fall off over time leaving the poor customers confused again about how to hold a pen.

Far too frequently, however, the arrows become loose and fall off, not the case with this pen, the arrow filled arrow is present, correct, and secure.

Beautifully finished in  black and 'Lustralloy' cap with a pearl end stud this is the 'Classic' version of the Parker 61. The barrel and section have a good deep black finish and the cap is totally free of dings and clearly stamped 'Parker'. 

The capillary cell  has been flushed and is in working order.  The 14Ct. Gold nib writes with a very smooth, medium line, perhaps a little on the fine side.  

The pen is presented in the original Parker 61 box which is in good, sound condition.
