Following up on our Parker 45 prototypes, here are some more special Parkers -- hard to find models that weren't put into full production.
13654: Parker 61: black capillary-filler, 12.9 cm long, stainless steel cap, gold filled trim, test-market design differing in several key respects from the full production version introduced in 1956: "61" logo pierced into gold undernib shield and barrel-end vent; integral barrel and hood construction; unique cap design, interior details shown in US patent 2,773,479, applied for March 1, 1952. Parker intended to put this design into full production until consumers rejected it during test marketing. In original cellophane sleeve, as new.
