Hand cleaned the NIB and Lucy Curve feed. Hand cleaned the inside of the barrel, cap, and section with mineral oil. Cleaned the outside of the cap and barrel with mineral oil and the hard rubber displays a nice mottled color (red & black) with vibrant coloring.
This fountain pen is made from red mottled hard rubber. This is an Eyedropper Fountain Pen and that means you would unscrew the section to add the ink via an eyedropper. The barrel has a clean crisp imprint at the center that reads, "THE GEO. S. PARKER FOUNTAIN PEN JANESVILLE, WIS. U.S.A. PAT. JAN 9, 94, JUNE 22, 98., . JAN. 3, 05, JUN 6, 05". The butt end of the fountain pen has the #1 imprint. The imprint has the "Lucky Curve" banner on the barrel. The straight cap is a slip-type cap always securing tightly to the barrel. There are no monograms to either the cap or barrel. There are no cracks, nicks or repairs to the hard rubber. This Parker #1 measures 5 5/8" in length capped and 6 3/4" posted.
This Parker has the Lucky Curve Nib and feed. The actual tip of the Parker Lucky Curve 14K NIB measures .70mm with digital calipers or a medium point. When writing the sample in the listing images, the NIB writes with a fine line measuring .57mm and will flex to a triple broad stroke of 2.19mm with medium to firm pressure when being measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided 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. The nib writes extremely smoothly.
This Parker #1 Mottled Red Hard Rubber Straight Cap Fountain Pen is a tough model to acquire. This is a scarce fountain pen made in circa 1910 and the condition is Near Mint to Mint Condition. The condition makes this pen a "unicorn" and will be a treasured writing instrument for the fine Parker Fountain Pen writing arsenal collection!
