The Parker Signet is a vastly under appreciated pen. If it had been made by Pelikan or MontBlanc it would be worth four (or more) times the asking price.

PA1540: 1950s Parker 51. This is an Argentinean Insignia, the Spanish version of the Signet. The pen is letter perfect, and, better yet, has a broad italic nib.

PA1541: 1948 Parker 51 Signet, all gold filled. This is a very good user grade pen, with no plating wear but with three minor dings and a slightly larger one. This has a fairly uncommon medium nib.
