Parker “51” Vacumatic Filler “First Year” The Parker “51” commonly referred to as a “First Year” pen is really a pen from late through They can be easily distinguished from later production by several unique characteristics. All pens of this period are double jewels, meaning that they have a decorative “jewel” at the top of the cap and at the end of the barrel. The imprint on the majority of these pens is at the end of the barrel, near the decorative “jewel”, all in one line. They may or may not have a “1” datecode after the imprint. Some collectors speculate that the ones without a datecode are really pre-production models from Another explanation may be that they were never dated or that the datecode wore off on most instances the datecode is lightly imprinted to begin with. It should be noted that some examples have been found with the imprint up by the clutch ring, with a datecode of “1”.

Other high end pens, like the Classic, had been around since even though it was slightly redesigned as the Parker “95”. Parker decided that it was time to retire the old work horses and launch a new top line fountain pen.
During the ‘s Parker had relied heavily on the Jotter for the low end ball pen market and the Classic for the high end ball pen and roller ball pen market. As a result of this The Insignia was introduced in The principle designer of the pen being Geoff Hollington. Now Parker again contacted Geoff Hollington and asked him to come up with a fountain pen design that would be versatile and attractive enough to replace the Parker “75”. Hollington worked closely with Parker’s engineers to make sure space was efficiently used and that writing performance, cap fit, pushbutton action for the ball pen version and so on were optimised.
His long experience with different materials and the knowledge of the basic construction of the pen, ABS plastics, acrylics, brass, stainless steel, silver and gold made the cooperation work well. So when designing a pen you have only a small space in which to move. Add the need for strong brand authenticity and the space becomes very tight indeed. He of course later went on to design the price winning Parker “” and the Frontier. The strategy was to offer the Sonnet in several designs, priced accordingly, so that one model could be offered in a wide price range.

I bought this pen last Saturday from a fellow collector for a very good price of P This was the first writing sample I took of it. It was a very dry writer, and I actually only bought it as a partner to my Parker 45 ballpoint pen. I thought I was going to just add it to my collection, tuck it away and never get to use again.
