Type fountain pen
Product Name Parker 61, Mark II. We think of Mark II as being the capillary-fill model with the wider clutch ring, but it could be they numbered them differently in Argentina ... these have aerometric filling systems, which wasn't a version of the pen we see in the USA, where the capillary filling system was replaced by a cartridge/converter filling pen and is considered the Mark III.
Manufacturer and Year Parker, made in Argentina – 1959-61
Filling System Aerometric Filling System
