Parker 45

The Parker 45 was first introduced in 1960 and was based on the original Eversharp 10,000 design that Parker acquired with the acquisition of Eversharp in the late 1950s. Parker 45s were last produced in 2007. They are one of the Parker pens that I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a retro version of in the future. Great value for a workhorse pen! Sometimes people think all Parker 45s are the same, but that is far from the truth. Collectibility and pricing is all based on a variety of factors - rarity of color or finish, cap material and trim, nib material and width as well as the condition. Parker 45s are cartridge/converter fill.

PK2395  $30

Parker France,  Parker 45 Display Card, ca. late 1960s. Features illustrations of the Parker 45 ballpoint pen, marker and Super Quink ink cartridges.  Printed in black, grey, and red on white background.  Two metal clips on the back of the Display Card to clip onto a Parker Display of 45 family products.  Unusual shape with the angled top – 8.25 in wide, 9.75 in height to top right corner, 8.5 in height to top left corner.  Shows some very minor shop wear on the edges and a few light marks.   Definitely not something you see everyday, a quite unusual piece of Parker – France history. Very good condition.

PK2474 $45

Parker Window Jotter Ballpen, ca. 1970s, USA. This window Jotter is particularly desirable because it is advertising Parker refills instead of general advertising for other companies.

B1634 $5

Parker advertising blotter, ca. 1990s, white with black imprint. Measures 2.75 x 4 5/8 inches. Never used, perfect condition.

P861 $25

Parker Pen Company Packing List, ca. 1940s. Not dated, found with WWII era Parker Quink boxes and the style of the packing list seems to fit in with that era as well.

It's made out to Hoke Drug Co in Raeford, NC and was for a lighted display case of some sort. Parker sent 30 dozen bottles of Quink Ink to offset the cost of the display. The Parker address is Court and Division Sts in Janesville. Measures 5 3/8 x 11 inches. There is a burn mark center left and a tear in the center, blue ink smudge in lower right corner. All in all it has survived the years quite well and seems to have outlasted the Hoke Drug Company which no longer seems to be in business.

Parker Illustrated Heritage Calendar - Parker 1997 Heritage Calendars have a story to tell and the illustrations are magnificent. Truly works of art, the illustrations were recreated from old black and white Parker advertisements, skillfully restored and hand colored. Each page of the calendar is 16.5 x 23.5 inches with a small monthly reference calendar at the bottom of the page, the colored print is above the calendar. The calendar was printed on a gloss heavy white stock, very suitable for framing should you so desire. There is also a bound in full sized page explaining the history of the advertising prints in English and five other languages. These calendars are in pristine condition inside a protective cardboard envelope. Each illustration features a different advertisement with Parker Pens from the early Lucky Curve era. Early black and white Parker advertisements using these illustrations and from same era sell for $10-$15 each. These colored illustrations are far more beautiful and a very limited quantity was produced. Four of the twelve illustrations are shown just to give you an overall feel for the beauty of the Parker artwork. A must have for the serious Parker collector!


PK2226 $25

Parker Duofold Mosaic Retail Display Pad - In 2001 Parker introduced the special edition Mosaic Duofold series. This retail counter display was used to show the pen to customers and attract attention to the new Duofold. It is an exceptional display piece made of printed acrylic, the mosaic design is hard to capture but it lies in the background in a subtle grey against the shiny very dark black background. Printed in the lower right corner is Parker Duofold Mosaic logo in silver, white and red. Measures 17.25 x 10.75 inches, small rubber raised feet on the underside. There is a little bit of light surface wear, overall very nice condition. Great item for the Parker collector. Far fewer of these displays were made than Parker Mosaic pens themselves!

Even though there is no mention of World War II, all of the advertising lines Parker used for this Display Sign point to that era and were frequently used in their magazine advertising in the 1940s; "protects your pen with solv-x, prevents breakdown of metal and rubber, keeps pens out of the repair shop" Very minor "bumps" on each corner, this sign has survived the past 80 or so years in amazingly excellent condition.
