A beautiful stainless steel Sonnet pen set in very excellent condition. The only thing I would mention is that there is a little bit of plating wear to the pocket clip shoulder on the ballpoint. This is hardly noticeable. The caps have a gold plated tassie with black "jewels" in the centre. The gold plated pocket clips have the trademark "feathered" shoulder and arrow point terminal.
The imprint to the side of the cap states "PARKER", "SONNET", "FRANCE U.I". The barrel has a rounded end and unscrews to allow the fitting of a standard Parker ink cartridge or if you prefer you can use a standard Parker ink converter (the original unsed converter is in the box below the pad). The gripping section is slightly flared at the front for a good solid grip, with a gold plated band adjacent to the gold plated stainless steel nib. This is in a fine point.
The date code on the cap is the same as for the fountain pen above. This is a retractable pen that works by twisting the cap. It is currently fitted with its original blue ink refill that works perfectly.
The original box is still present, with the instruction/guarantee sheet and ink converter below the pad. It, too, is in very nice condition. There is a little wear to the edges of the card outer slipcase.
I have fully serviced this set. The fountain pen writes with a very nice wet and consistent line. The ballpoint pen works perfectly.
