    All my Sheaffer school pens write better than any of my Parker 45s. This was surprising.

    I think these are the first Parker ( Eversharp ) fountain pen refills made.

    Any comments please

    I remember "Tap-Tank" on the first cartridges I got for my new Parker 45, December, 1960. I must have had a US-made P-45, probably bought at the pen counter of The Hecht Company, a department store in Washington, DC. Cartridges and Quink must have been made in Wisconsin.

    The price is definitely 1960s.

    Many thanks to Welch and as always, pajaro.

    I now am sure the first ' Parker ' ( Eversharp ) cartridges released for sale were in the third part of 1960.

    Whilst the first Parker ink converters were developed before this date but they were never released for sale - Patent issues with Eversharp original.

    This thread confirms what I suspected about my Parker 45. I thought it must have been produced around the same time that cartridges were introduced because of the inclusion of a demonstration cartridge unit along with a full cartridge.

    Krazy Ivan,

    I am please that you realised the significance of my post.
    ( Most would think it was of not important at all )

    As you thought the P45 was released with the new cartridge – October – ish 1960.


    I was trying to get my head around a different problem.

    If Parker ( Janesville ) had a initial production run of P51 C/C ‘s in 1958 why did they not released them before 1961.

    The answer is complex, but I now have it.
    In short Parker was developing with ‘ borrowed ‘ Eversharp technology

    What I did not realise is P51 C/C were released in 4 different versions at different intervals, 1961 / 1962 – 4 different branding of the same pens.

    Cartridge only – no chalk marks. ( Pre Chalk Marks )
    Cartridge only – Diamond chalk marks ( Earliest chalks marks )
    Cartridge only – ‘CARTRIDGE’ chalk marks ( First standard chalk marks )
    Full C/C , both cartridge and ink converter – ‘CONVERTIBLE’ chalk marks

    The above is a result of a collaboration between 4 Parker collectors ( only one is here on this forum )

    Was sent these images today by other Parker collector.

    They are net lifts.


    Have asked jos for copies of Parkergrams of June 1960 & August 1960.( PM )

    I think most Parker archive researchers missed something.

    This pen was made long before the P45, it is just too primitive for 1958-60 Parker development.
