Two Parker fountain pens, both Model 45s, in black with a metal cap, and the other 45 a metal cap with a plastic dark green body.

These model 45s come with a black plastic body and metal cap, while the second 45 features a metal cap and dark green plastic body. Based on Parker’s experience with filling systems in, the company decided to produce a cartridge it was both simple and cost efficient. The first model to receive this new cartridge was the Parker 45. On can take any Parker cartridge from any time period and stick it into any cartridge Parker pen and it will fit. This idea was revolutionary. The new Parker 45 was released to the public in 1960 and was a smash hit. The cartridge/converter idea was also soon adopted by most pen companies. Both the cartridge and converter became a manufacturers standard and is still being used today. Capped, these’45s measure 5 1/4 inches. Together, the pens weigh 1.1 ounces. These vintage pens have the wear typical with items of this age that have seen everyday use. The green body pen is missing its ring that is position where the cap meets the body. Aside from this and the kinds of minor scuffs and scratches, the pens are in very good condition. We cannot make any guarantees they will work, but they are certainly good candidates for a hobbyist rebuilding project. These rare fountain pens are a real piece of history, and an economic way to add to one’s pen collection! Looking for more great Antiques? We are located HERE.
