This lovely Flighter is still in excellent condition. It is presented here with all its original retail packaging and it appears to be an old stock item, looking as if it may have never actually been used. There is no damage at all on this pen that I was able to find. It has a chromed Parker arrow pocket clip and chromed clutch ring. The section is in glossy, unmarked black plastic. The nib is in a fine point, made from 14 carat gold, and is also completely undamaged with a generous blob of iridium at the tip. The barrel unscrews to allow the filling of the pen. It may be used with either a standard Parker ink cartridge or filled from a bottle using the original Parker ink converter already fitted. The original textured black plastic paperboard Parker presentation case is also in excellent condition. It has silver coloured accents to the outside. Inside is the original instruction sheet, and below the red satin pad are two original Parker Tap Tank cartridges in a recess. One still has ink and the other is empty, probably the only ink ever to go through the pen. The whole thing is very clean and tidy. The original white cardboard slipcase protects the box, It is in very good structural condition, though it does have some considerable staining and age spotting to the outside.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth in action and writes with a lovely wet and fine width consistent line.
