The Parker Duofold Special was first introduced in 1930 as part of the Duofold Streamlined range. The pens were made from Permanite, Parkers name for Celluloid.
The colours on this model are still strong and the imprint on the barrel is a little worn but still legible. There are some minor marks and scratches to the cap and barrel and the gold plating is showing signs of wear. A small crack to the cap lip has been sealed and repaired. The pen is totally original and has been fully serviced.
The nib is a lovely medium Italic which writes beautifully. These are lovely pens and quite scarce in good condition.
