419 A mechanical pencil "British Road Services", in black with gold plated trim; this is a quality pencil, probably made by Conway Stewart or Onoto for the post World War II newly nationalised "British Road Services" an organisation which once ran virtually all the heavy goods vehicles on British roads but now confined to history. The pencil is in excellent working condition complete with original unbranded box.
Made in England Ca. 1959.

Sold

441 Parker Junior Duofold, aerometric filler, black with gold filled trim; another medium size pen just under 5½" long with the cap in place and similar in diameter to the famous Parker 51, these pens have the ultra reliable aerometric filling system and were made between 1956 and late 1960s only. This example is in very good condition with no visible brassing and the only significant wear is on the barrel where the cap has been continually posted. Fitted with a Parker #10, medium point, flexible 14K nib which has plenty of iridium left. Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write. Made in England Ca. 1959.

Sold

442 Parker Junior Duofold, aerometric filler, dark green with gold filled trim; another medium size pen just under 5½" long with the cap in place and similar in diameter to the famous Parker 51, these pens have the ultra reliable aerometric filling system and were made between 1956 and late 1960s only. This example is in good condition with extensive brassing to the high points of the trim and some wear to the barrel; especially where the cap screws on. Nevertheless, the barrel to cap threads are a good fit and hold tightly and pen is generally clean and sound. Fitted with a Parker #10, medium/fine point, 14K nib. Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write. Made in England Ca. 1958.

Sold

443 Mabie Todd & Co., Swan # 3260, black with gold filled trim; a typically English fountain pen from the late 1940s, this black Swan is in very good working condition and is complete with its original box and "Directions for using". The trim is  almost complete free of brassing - even on the clip ball - and the imprints are crisp and clear. The modestly flexible Swan # 2, medium point 14k nib has good iridium and had it not been for the odd light scratch and some light tool marks on the nib section, I could have described this pen as excellent. Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write. Made in England Ca. 1948.

Sold

444 A German piston filling school pen, dark green, 14K nib; an inexpensive pen of unknown make - the nib has a mountain goat logo and the barrel is imprinted "Western Germany" which may help German pen experts to identify it.  The pen is longer than a Pelikan 120 with a similar piston filling system - generally in very good clean working condition and fitted with a rigid, medium point, 14K nib. Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write. Made in West Germany Ca. 1960.

Sold

446 Parker "17 Lady", aerometric filler, black with gold filled trim; this is a small size pen just under 4¾" long with the cap in place, these pens are similar in appearance to the Parker 51 with a hooded nib and the ultra reliable aerometric filling system. The "Lady" version of the Newhaven designed Parker 17 was only made for a short time in the early 1960s. This example is in very good condition with no visible brassing and no significant wear. Fitted with a medium point, semi-flexible, 14K nib which has plenty of iridium left. Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write - just right for the hand-bag! Made in England Ca. 1963.

Sold

449 Mabie Todd & Co., Blackbird BB2/60, BCHR; a comfortably sized pen, just over 5¼ inches long in black chased hard rubber in very good usable condition. The colour is shiny black with no fading, except on the nib section, and it is fitted with a Blackbird 14K medium point flexible nib. Made in England Ca. 1940.

Sold

450 Parker New Duofold, aerometric filler, blue with gold filled trim; a largish pen similar in size and shape to the later Vacumatics, these highly desirable pens have the ultra reliable aerometric filling system and were made at Newhaven between 1952 and 1956. This example is in very good condition with no visible brassing and only general wear to the cap and barrel which will polish out quite easily. Fitted with a Parker #25, broad point, semi-flexible 14K nib which looks a bit scruffy but, nevertheless, lays down a nice line and writes very smoothly. Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write. Made in England 1956.

Sold

451 Parker "Slimfold", aerometric filler, black with gold filled trim; a neat "Junior" size pen just under 5" long with the cap in place, these pens have the ultra reliable aerometric filling system and were made between 1956 and the late 1960s. This example is in very good condition with no visible brassing . Fitted with a Parker #5, broad point, semi-flexible 14K nib which has plenty of iridium left. Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write. Made in England Ca. 1963.

452 Parker "45", cartridge/converter filler, blue with with steel cap and gold filled trim; the first successful cartridge pen - these pens were produced in England for 40 years but this is an early U.S.A. made example in remarkably very good condition. Fitted with a medium point, stainless steel alloy nib which has plenty of iridium. A nice pen at a nice price! Supplied cleaned, tested and ready to write. Made in U.S.A Ca. 1969.

Sold

455 Parker "25", cartridge/converter filler pen and ballpoint set, stainless steel/blue; An unusual pen designed and produced at Newhaven as a stylish and robust "student pen" during the 1980s - these are no longer in production but I rescued some NOS examples from a warehouse fire some years back and I have recently found some more from the same source. There may be some very slight smoke staining to the plastic box but the pen and pencil are in new mint unused condition. Fitted with a medium point, stainless steel alloy nib. Made in England Ca. 1985.  I may have a few more of these available.
