PA3085 Parker Duofold Junior (Semi-Flexible Medium Italic)

Date: c1950s

Size: Capped - 136mm; posted - 161mm.

This lovely glossy jet black Junior Duofold is in excellent condition.  Both barrel and cap are free from cracks, chips and splits.  They have a beautiful glossy sheen and have no scratches or other blemishes at all.  The cap has a conical black top "jewel", and a rolled gold Parker arrow pocket clip.  All the trim is undamaged with no plate loss at all.  Near the cap lip is the usual "Deco" engraved band.  The imprint, on the side of the barrel, is quite shallow but is still showing very well indeed.  The 14 carat yellow gold Parker No. 10 nib is also undamaged and in a medium italic point.   The aerometric filler is accessed by unscrewing the barrel.  It is also undamaged with the original pliglass ink sac which shows hardly any internal staining and retains nearly all of its original transparency.  The sac guard is chrome plated.    

I have fully serviced this pen.  It writes very smoothly and produces a wet line.  It does have an unusual degree of softness to it - I would class it as semi-flexible - and will produce some very attractive line width variation as you write.  Cuopled with the italic cut of the nib, it is an extremely expressive writer which is easily capable of variation in line width from a fine to an extra-broad.
