PA3207 Parker Slimfold, boxed. (Semi-Flexible Fine)

Date: c1960

Size: Capped - 127mm; posted - 147mm.

This lovely glossy burgundy Slimfold is in excellent and hardly used condition.  Both barrel and cap are free from cracks, chips and splits.  They have a beautiful glossy sheen and have no scratches.  The only damage I can see on this pen are a couple of small discoloured patches on the gripping section - these were caused by ink being in contact with the section for a number of years.  I think this pen must have been "put away" with ink in it at one time or another.  The cap has a rolled gold pocket clip that is held on by a conical burgundy top "jewel".  All the trim is undamaged with no plate loss at all.  The 14 carat yellow gold Parker No. 5 nib is also undamaged and in a medium point.  The barrel bears a very crisp and clear imprint and, very unusually, a partial chalk mark, indicating that this pen has seen hardly any use.  The aerometric filler is accessed by unscrewing the barrel.  It is also undamaged with the original pliglass ink sac which shows no internal ink staining and hardly any discolouration of the original ink sac.  The original box is the typical 1960s black and white polka-dot affair made from paperboard.  It would have originally housed a pencil too, but this is no longer present.  It has some very minor staining to the outside and some age browning to the satin pad.  

I have fully serviced this pen.  It writes very smoothly and produces a wet and fine width line.  It is a nice, soft, nib, verging on semi-flexible I would say and it will give you some very attractive line width variation as you write from an extra-fine to a generous medium.
