Size: Capped - 5 5/8 inches; posted - 6 3/8 inches.
A beautiful glossy dark blue Senior Duofold. This pen is in excellent condition. There are no noticeable scratches on either cap or barrel, and the only damage I can see on it is a tiny bit of plating wear to the edges of the pocket clip that you will not even notice without a loupe. The cap has a blue conical top "jewel" with a rolled gold Parker arrow pocket clip and a rolled gold "deco" engraved cap band. The barrel unscrews for access to the Aerometric filler. This is made from brushed steel. it is very clean with none of the all-too-common tarnishing and discolouration.. The original pli-glass ink sac is still fitted and it is in excellent condition and retains some transparency with just some light internal ink staining through use. The nib is a lovely and large 14 carat gold Parker No. 35 in a medium point. It is still nice and shiny and undamaged. This imprint on this pen is complete though in common with most examples of this pen, it is quite shallow.
I have fully serviced this pen. Because of the large ink sac, it holds a good amount of ink. The nib is very smooth with a good amount of iridium on the tip. It is a slightly stubby nib, giving some understated line width variation as you write from a fine-to medium to generous medium, bordering on broad width.
A lovely writer and a very good sized large pen.
