Size: Length - 5 3/16 inches.
This is a beautiful Parker 61 Custom ballpoint. It is the very attractive Vista Blue colour with the rolled gold cap and it is in excellent and as far as I can see, totally undamaged condition. The cap has a clear grey top jewel, and the body of the cap is 1/10 12ct rolled gold and has the "converging lines" decoration. Around the cap lip is imprinted "Parker", "61" and "Made in England". The arrow-shaped pocket clip is also rolled gold. This is a retractable ballpoint - you press down on the cap to extend and retract the writing point. It is fitted with what is probably its original Parker T-Ball refill in blue, and this is still in working order.
I have fully serviced this ballpoint. It works perfectly, and is in really lovely condition. It would be equally at home in a collection or as a daily user.
