Parker should be a familiar name to anyone who pays attention to pens; their Jotter ballpoints are everywhere, and they have a pretty good reputation in the higher end as well. They were and still are one of the great fountain pen companies, and the arrow clip design should be instantly recognizable to anyone who pays attention to fine pens. Parker was founded by George Stafford Parker in Early Parker pens had the unique patented “Lucky Curve” feed, which was an elongated conventional feed that curved back to touch the barrel wall.
Supposedly this helps draw ink back into the pen when it wasn’t in use. Parker used the Lucky Curve into the s as a competitive market differentiator in a crowded pen market. Unlike most major manufacturers of the era, Parker largely stayed away from the lever fill mechanism. Although they did produce some examples of lever fillers, they prefered their own homegrown mechanisms. During the s and s, this was the button fill mechanism, which used a button hidden behind a blind cap to compress the bar that the lever would have compressed.
The Duofold, introduced around , formed the top end of the Parker line through the s. The Duofold was a large imposing pen initially released in a bright red color with squared off ends. The rarer colors especially Mandarin Yellow are highly collectible today.

In the early ‘s a man named Fisher was tracing old Spanish treasure ships that had sunk outside the coast of Florida in Fisher managed to retrieve a lot of gold and silver ingots bars from the ships. Designer Don Doman conceived the idea to make a limited edition of the Parker 75 from this old silver. He discussed the matter with one of the Parker Companys vice presidents and was given the go-ahead.
Fisher was contacted and quite a lot of the old silver was bought. The Spanish Treasure fleet 75 is today one of the most sought for Parker 75’s, if not one of the most sought for and in fact the first ever produced limited edition pens.
