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.
