Here’s a link to an article, “The art of DJ Kennedy”: http://artsyville.blogspot.com/2009/02/art-of-dj-kennedy.html. “Chisten Jewel” (if I have the first word correct” would be the name Kennedy gave to the pen.

$1000

27
1921 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Red Hard Rubber. Very rare, first year, bandless model, with the “large” barrel imprint. Because of problems of cap lip breakage from the stresses of posting the cap onto the barrel, Parker very shortly added a band, which they called the “Golden Girdle.” GFT. Medium nib. Shown open so you can see the very slight color shift where the barrel was covered by the cap. Signs of ink in the cap, otherwise near mint in original box. Close-up photo of pen in box.
$1700

28
1933 Parker Vacuum-Filler Jr. in Silver Laminated with matching section and jewels. The vacuum-filling pen from Parker was introduced in July 1932 as the “Golden Arrow.” In November 1932 its name was changed to “Vacuum Filler.” In June 1933 the “Vacuum Filler Jr.” was introduced, a slightly smaller model with 2 rather than 3 cap bands. Within a month the name was changed to “Vacumatic,” where it stayed for the next 15 years or so. This pen is very rare, only in production for about a month in 1933. Two-toned, medium nib. New-old-stock. Mint in original box – and what a presentation box! A bit shopworn, but highly unique, and the only one I have ever seen which is signed “Parker VACUUM FILLER!” Close-up photo of pen in box.
$800

29
1937 Parker Sr. Maxima Vacumatic in Red Laminated (rare). GFT. Rare “Star” clip. In their book, Parker 51, Parker, Shepherd and Zazove indicate that in November 1937 Parker announced that the star was intended to be the symbol of it’s lifetime guarantee. But no Catalog ever showed but one pen (a desk pen) with the star. The far more visible “blue diamond” became the symbol instead. Non-cataloged examples of pens with the star logo are very rare indeed. Visualated barrel. Just a tad of wear to the right side of the barrel imprint (fully readable), otherwise near mint. By the way, earlier 1937 production had the signed “Parker Vacumatic” cap band. This example, with the barrel stamped “47″ for 4th quarter 1937 production, is from just after the “Vac” band was discontinued. Two-toned, medium/fine nib.

1950 Montblanc 342 PIF in Silver Pearl with Black Pinstriping. Rare Spanish production, manufactured for MB by the E. Wiese Pen Company. GFT. Fine, flexible, italic nib. Visualated barrel. New-old-stock. Mint

The pen was made by the small Montblanc factory in Barcelona, Spain. After the WWII, Spain forbid import from Germany so a German family, Wiese, started a small factory to manufacture Montblanc pens, using their patents. The pen is based on the Montblanc 342, 344 and similar models. It’s slightly larger then the 342 and slightly smaller then the 344 model. The mechanism and quality are identical. These Spanish models use a unique celluloid and today are among the rarest of the Montblanc, with only a small number known to exist. By the way, the “W” is pronounced as if it were a “V.”

1970 Parker 45 Ball Pen in Blue. President Nixon had at least three different Parker ‘bill signers’, one of which was a Parker ‘45’ silver metal trim inscribed in silver on the barrel with “THE WHITE HOUSE” and the President’s signature. These were given out as gifts during the administration, supposedly used to sign something before being given away. According to his Chief of Staff, Bob Haldeman, when Nixon gave away little gifts he prefaced it by saying (with a chuckle), “Give this to your wife or your secretary, whichever you prefer.” Uses a regular Parker refill.
