Cleaned, Buffed, and Polished the barrel, blind cap and cap to bring back the vibrancy of fountain pen and to protect the material of the pen.

This Duofold is a Button Filler and has been tested with water and fills as it should. The filling unit operates as it was originally intended.
The Parker NIB is 14K with a PARKER DUOFOLD MADE IN USA imprint. The actual writing portion of the 14K Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .63mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a medium stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures between .65mm to .83mm when measuring with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Montblanc Blue Ink.
This is an Iconic vintage Parker Duofold Fountain Pen in the Senior size and is a gorgeous example from Parker that is very clean with a great writing nib. I would consider this Parker grade in Excellent Condition. It is ready to write or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
