Published Monday, October 13, You dip the filling end into a bottle of ink, and in just 10 seconds it drinks enough ink to write for hours. The s was the big era of technical development in the world of the fountain pen. Hot on the heels of the classic Parker 51, the model 61 which was to evolve through many incremental steps was slimmer, stylistically ground-breaking and, most importantly, it filled itself. Scores of Parker engineers worked for years to perfect a ‘no mess’ system that would refill the pen without the need for moving parts and would compete not just with fountain pens such as the Snorkel from Scheaffer and cartridge systems from Waterman, but also with the encroaching world of the ballpoint. Its capillary action, to a market that was used to syringe-style systems and cartridges, was like something out of science fiction, especially as the filler unit was coated with ink-repellent PTFE-formula material called Teflon from DuPont, which had been used in the development of space-age non-stick cooking pans. The key to the success of the design was its simplicity. With a low part count, Parker was able to keep the pen’s overall shape streamlined. In fact, there are no moving parts in the original no buttons, levers, plungers, squeeze bars or converters.
In the early ‘s a man named Fisher was tracing old Spanish treasure ships that had sunk outside the coast of Florida in Fisher managed to retrieve a lot of gold and silver ingots bars from the ships. Designer Don Doman conceived the idea to make a limited edition of the Parker 75 from this old silver. He discussed the matter with one of the Parker Companys vice presidents and was given the go-ahead.
Fisher was contacted and quite a lot of the old silver was bought.

I found an interesting internal Parker document that specifies the cap band inscription requirements. This specification sheet brings to light several things that affirm, correct and raise some implications. Second is confirmation that the vertical bars were indeed used to denote quarters. But what is rather surprising is that this quarter encoding did not start with as I originally presumed at the top of this page.
Of course since the first year to use this quarter encoding form isthis implies the document was made prior to. Light brassing or small lip crack. While cartridges are mess-free and more convenient to refill than bottle filling, converter and bottle filling systems are still sold.

For obvious reasons it’s virtually impossible to list all the pens made by Parker from this period. Partly because there was a constant tinkering going on and since all pens were more or less hand made there are discrepancies, prototypes and repairs made with different spares. Partly because Parker also made alot of pens by order. If You wanted a pen with a gold band engraved with that special flower, Parker would most probably have accomodated You.
I will however try to list as many catalogued models as possible and at the same time tell the early story of the production advances of the Parker Pen Company in th earliest days, before the Duofold. Parker was born in and patented his first pen design when he was 25 years old. The main problem with fountain pens is that they are essential a mechanism to provide a controlled leak.
