The Parker Duofold was first introduced in 1962. The range consisted of the the Slimfold with the No.5 nib, the Junior with the larger No.10 nib, the standard Duofold and the Demi with the No.25 nib, the Senior with the No.35 nib and, finally, the prestigious Maxima, fitted with the huge No.50 nib. The range was produced right through to the 1970's and they were extremely popular because of their reliability and quality.
This particular pen is a Duofold Standard dating from around 1965. It is finished in Green with gold filled trim to the clip and cap ring.
It is fitted with a superb smooth Broad Italic nib which writes beautifully and deserves more than Five Stars!
The pen uses the reliable aerometric filler (for filling with ink from a bottle.) The pen is in excellent condition with only very minor marks and scratches commensurate with use. The imprint on the barrel is clear and the plating to the clip and cap ring is in very good order.
