PA3087 Parker 65 Custom Insginia. (Soft Generous Medium)

Date: c1970

Size: Length - 137mm capped; 159mm posted.

This beautiful all rolled gold '65 is in very good condition with no damage on it that I was able to spot at all save for the usual very fine and wispy surface scratches, and a small spot of discolouration to the side of the cap.  The '65 was a variation on the '61 with an open cropped nib replacing the tubular hooded nib of the '61.  Both cap and barrel are finished in rolled gold with the groups of vertical incised lines running the whole length of the pen.  The end of the cap and of the barrel have rolled gold "jewels" held in with rolled gold bosses.  The pocket clip has a long arrow "flight", again in the Parker 61 style.   The barrel unscrews to allow the fitting of a standard Parker ink cartridge or if you prefer you can use a standard Parker ink converter (not included).  The nib is shiny and undamaged with lots of iridium and in 14 carat gold.  It is in what looks like a broad point. 

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth and lays down a wet and wideish medium width line, slightly narrower than I was expecting from the width of the nib tip.  However, the nib is soft and will produce a little understated line width variation as you write.
