In my Shirtpocket, October 2017: Hero 616

At work as a physician I’m often in situations where I’m not comfortable using one of my 100+ $ pens. Then I reach for a Hero 616. One of the cheapest pens you can buy, but it is very reliable and writes with a precise thin line!

One of the reasons is of course that it is a copy of one of the best designs ever, the Parker “51”.  Can you identify which one is a Hero and which one is a genuine Parker “51”?

If you plan to buy a Hero 616s I would advice you to:

I. Be sure to buy a pen of the big size, also called Jumbo size.

II. The seller that I trust on Ebay is jewelrymathematics. He is selling genuine Heroes with free shipping.
