PA2696 Parker 45. (Medium)

Date: c19760s

Size: Capped - 137mm; posted - 147mm.

The 45 was Parker's first cartridge pen in 1960.  The 45 series are robust pens and good writers, laying down nice wet lines.  This pen is a glossy jet black colour and is in excellent, undamaged condition.  There are no scratches, cracks, splits or chips.  I don't think it has been used much, if at all in the past, and I have just dipped the nib to get the writing sample below.   It has a chrome plated top button, with a chrome plated Parker arrow pocket clip.  The cap has a narrow chrome plated lip band.   The barrel unscrews to allow the fitting of either a standard Parker ink cartridge, or, if you prefer bottled ink, you can use the original squeeze-bar ink converter that is already fitted to the pen.  The nib is made from 14 carat gold and has a medium width point.

I have fully serviced this pen.  It writes very well, producing a very smooth, wet medium width line. 

A lovely example of an early 1970s Parker 45.  Not a lot of these about in such good condition nowadays.
