This glossy jet black Victory resembles somewhat a Streamlined Duofold in style. Made in England for only a few years from approx. 1941 to 1946, this pen is in excellent condition with just a little plating wear to the pocket clip ball and some foxing to the cap band. You will probably not even notice it without using magnification. The cap has a large black top button that holds on the gold filled Parker washer-style pocket clip. This has a ball at the bottom and "PARKER" inscribed down the shank. There is a single gold filled band at the cap lip. The long tapered barrel end blind cap unscrews smoothly to reveal the original brass filling button. The barrel imprint is crisp and clear and the nib is an excellent Parker Newhaven in 14 carat gold. It has a medium width point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth and writes beautifully with a good wet medium width line. This nib is unusually soft for a Newhaven nib. I would say it is semi-flexible and will give some very attractive line width variation from a fine on the horizontals to a good generous broad on the verticals - all with very little effort.
