About This Model
The 65 was an English Parker, developed in the mid-1960s as a successor to the 61, which was largely unsuccessful, even with the innovative capillary filler. These were not easy years for Parker, as they struggled to maintain success. The 65 was meant to evoke the 51 but with a part 61-like/part 51 Aerometric filler. /they appeared in number of gold-filled decorative finishes, and sported semi-hooded nibs with some flex. 65s were produced well into the 1970s, with a raft of style and filler changes.
About This Pen
This 65 is from 1967-68, in Parker’s Rage Red and with the Consort cap, in a bricked pattern, in 12K 1/5 rolled gold. Its barrel and section are unmarked, although there is some underlying micro-scratching from use that only appears with close inspection. Its 14k nib writes a super-smooth, wet, broad line. It is a cartridge-filler and comes with an appropriate empty cartridge. It is an elegant pen.
This pen is not for sale.
