This is an excellent condition Parker 21 Super in glossy midnight blue. I can't see any damage on this pen, apart from a faint clip mark on the cap caused by the pocket clip terminal rubbing on the frosting. The Lustraloy cap has a chrome plated pocket clip that has a raised central ridge and an imprinted feather at the shoulder, similar in style to that fitted to the Parker 45 and arrow point at the terminal, with a chrome plated top "jewel". The bright glossy deep blue barrel and hood are completely unmarked. The Octanium nib completely undamaged and in a medium point. The aerometric filler is also undamaged with a lovely and shiny steel sheath. The original Pli-Glass sac has a tiny bit of internal ink staining, but it retains nearly all its original transparency. I rarely find Parker 21s in the UK, and to find one in such nice condition is good fortune indeed.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth and writes with an excellent wet and consistent medium 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.
