Hero 616 Not Parker 51 Fountain Pen
The Hero Shanghai Pen Company was founded in 1933. So it isn't a coincidence that their mainstays resemble old Parkers. The 616 is an aeromatic fill pen that has been made for years. From its cap to its hooded fine point it looks like a twin to the Parker 51. I am a fountain pen collector ---and USER. When this model caught my eye several years ago, I just had to have one and try it. While it isn't my 1949 Parker 51, it certainly is an excellent pen for the price---both in looks and utility. BigFotCat is glad that we acquired these and that he can pass them on at such a reasonable price. He has them in Burgundy, Forest Green and Black.
