PA3208 Parker 21 Super, boxed. (Fine)

Date: c1960s

Size: Capped - 137mm; posted - 156mm.

This is an excellent condition Parker 21 Super in glossy bottle green.  I can't see any damage at all on this pen.  The Lustraloy cap has a chrome plated pocket clip that has the imprinted arrow "flights" at the shoulder and point at the terminal.  The bright glossy deep green barrel and hood are completely unmarked.  The Octanium nib completely undamaged and in a fine point.  The aerometric filler is also undamaged with a lovely bright brushed steel sac guard.  The original Pli-Glass sac has very little staining and retains nearly all of its original transparency.  This indicates to me that the pen has hardly seen any use in its lifetime.   I rarely find Parker 21s in the UK, and to find one in such nice condition is good fortune indeed.  The pen is housed in a criss-cross pattern Parker paperboard box which has a little deformation at the corners and some ink stains to the outside.  It is much cleaner inside, though, with its grey satin pad.  

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth and writes with an excellent wet and consistent fine width line.

A classy 21 Super.  These seem to be so much rarer than the 51s, possibly because they were pens that actually got used and used to death.
