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. The earlier Parker 61s had the tricky capillary filling system.
Color Dark Green barrel and section and gold cap with a pattern of grouped lines. Gold clip. Double pearlized jewels on either end of the fountain pen.
Nib Medium hooded 14k 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 shiny pen in a lovely, subtle color, with a gold cap. The barrel and section look black until you get them in really bright light, and then you see the deep green color. The barrel and section have light scratching. The cap has microscratching and tiny dots of pitting, and also touches of brassing. The clip has pitting and light plating wear. The pearlized jewels look excellent. The imprints, including "Industria Argentina", are clear.
