Parker Family Album

Parker identification is usually easier than a similar effort for other makers, as Parker had the good grace to imprint the model name on the barrel or cap.  However, not only did they discontinue this useful practice in the 1970s, the impressions are sometimes so worn than the model cannot be made out.  I am thus offering this gallery to go along with the other spotter’s guides.

These pictures are arranged in historical order.  They don’t represent every pen Parker ever made, just the ones I’ve had a chance to examine.
