The Parker 17 was introduced in the UK in 1962, two pens were available, the 17 Duofold with a thin cap ring and the 17 Super Duofold with a deep cap ring. The 17 Lady was introduced in 1964.
This particular pen is an excellent example of the Parker 17 Super Duofold. It is finished in Black with gold filled trim to the clip and deep cap ring. It is fitted with the much rarer open "beaked" nib rather than the standard hooded nib. It writes with a fine line.
The pen is in very good condition and has been fully serviced.
