Size: Capped - 5 3/8 inches; posted - 6 1/4 inches.
A glossy green Victory Mk. V. The condition is excellent with the only damage being the tiniest bit of discolouration to the ends of the sac protector. This is usually inside the barrel and is totally invisible 99% of the time. Barrel and cap are both glossy with no splits, cracks or chips or even any noticeable scratches. The rolled gold trim is all bright and shiny. The cap has a green conical top "jewel" with a rolled gold Parker arrow pocket clip and "deco" engraved cap band. The barrel imprint is still complete though typically shallow. It includes the date code for 1953. The barrel unscrews to reveal the Aerometric filler. This is also in very good condition. In common with all early Aerometric pens, the filler is chrome plated. The original pliglass ink sac is still present and still nice and supple. It does have the usual internal ink staining but this is very much an unavoidable consequence of use with these pens. The nib is a shiny Parker No. 10 in 14-carat gold in a medium point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth to write with and produces a wet, medium width line. It is really quite a soft nib and will easily give you line width variation from a fine to a good solid broad with no problem whatsoever.
