PA3568 Parker Duofold Junior, boxed. (Soft Fine)

Date: c1950s

Size: Capped - 131mm; posted - 158mms.

A very attractive India Black Junior Duofold in excellent condition.  There are no splits, cracks or chips and not even any noticeable scratches on either barrel or cap.  All trim is rolled gold and again has no damage.  The cap is topped with a conical black "jewel" and has a washer style arrow pocket clip and narrow "deco" engraved cap band.  There is a lovely bold and crisp imprint on the barrel.  The barrel unscrews to reveal the Aerometric filler.  This is still in excellent condition - the sac guard is nice and clean with none of the usual discolouration at the ends.  The original pliglass ink sac show no evidence of ever actually seeing any ink - it retains 100% of its original transparency.  The nib is a shiny Parker No. 10 in 14 carat gold.  It is a fine point. The polka dot stock box has a couple of split corners on the lid, but is otherwise still in nice condition.  Inside is the original instruction sheet. 

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth and writes with a lovely wet and consistent fine width line.   It has a little bit of softness to it and will even manage a tiny bit of line width variation as you write.
