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, Argentina -- 1959-62
Filling System Fixed aerometric (squeeze) filing system.
Color Black barrel and section and brushed steel cap with shiny chrome clip. Double black jewels on either end of the fountain pen.
Nib FINE hooded steel nib. (These Argentinian P61s have two metal dots instead of the inset arrow on the hood.)
Condition Excellent condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. This is a velvety black, shiny pen with a silky brushed steel cap and in a classic design. The barrel and section look great with just some light scratching. The cap has light to moderate scratching with patches of shiny marks. The cap lip has moderate scratching and a little plating wear. The clip looks nice. The clip ring has scratching and some plating wear along the top edge. Both black jewels have microscratching. The imprint, "61 Parker 61 MKII, Industria Argentina" is clear.
