Type Fountain Pen
Product Name Parker 61, Mark II. We think of the US 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 II.
Manufacturer and Year Parker, Argentina -- 1959-62
Filling System Fixed aerometric (squeeze) filing system. Tested and working well. (The earlier Parker 61s had the tricky capillary filling system.)
Color Surf Green barrel and section and gold cap with a pattern of grouped lines and gold clip. Double pearlized jewels on either end of the fountain pen.
Nib Fine 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 bright, cheerful summery color, with a lined gold cap. The barrel and section have light scratching. There is slight ink staining around the nib opening. The cap and clip have light scratching and polishing marks. There is some slight plating wear in the fletching on the clip. The pearlized jewels look excellent. The imprints, including "Industria Argentina", are clear.
