Parker 75 “Spanish Silver” Pen - A bit of history


Recommended Posts

Just to add - I have not been able to find one in a condition I liked in 25 years of collecting Parker Pens.  I suspect this is because most were sold in the US.

The pens (fountain and ball point varieties limited to 4000) were made with silver recovered from the 1715 Treasure Fleet that was wrecked off of the Florida coast and primarily re-discovered by Kip Wagner (Read his excellent book “Pieces of Eight” for the story).


Thanks for a holiday reading idea.

Hi Kevin - this is a must read - give me a shout if you would like other remarkably interesting treasure book recommendations!

I just ordered it, I'm excited 😁

We have a quiet Halloween weekend ahead at a somewhat remote place. Good for resting and reading.

@dicker thanks for sharing this I enjoyed reading it.

I too have an interest in shipwrecks and the treasures they can hold. I have a small collection of shipwreck porcelain from a number of Chinese and Vietnamese 18th and 19th century shipwrecks.

I find them fascinating.
