This is a fabulous example of the rare Parker 45 Harlequin. These pens were only made for a short time due to production difficulties.
This is a New Old Stock example, as perfect as it left the factory 36 years ago! It has never been inked. It is finished in the grey circlet pattern which is rarer than the more usual grey shield pattern.
The pen was made in the UK and is date coded UL for the third quarter of 1981.
It is fitted with a new Gold Plated Fine nib. The pen uses standard Parker Cartridges but a converter can be purchased seperately if you prefer to fill the pen with ink from a bottle.
