I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Replaced the old sac with a new rubber sac. I have hand polished the Gold Filled Parker Clip, Cap Banding, and 14K Parker Duofold NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, and Polished the barrel, blind cap and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of the fountain pen. This Parker Duofold is the Junior Size and measures 4 5/8" capped and 5 7/8" posted.
The fountain pen barrel and blind cap are in very good condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. There are some normal surface scratching that commensurate with the age of the pen. The Cap has a Gold Filled Parker Clip with PAT SEPT 5 - 16 stamped and has been polished to shine brightly with no brassing. The cap banding has been polished and displays a bright gold filled color however there is some minor wear along the bottom edging. The barrel is stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER DUOFOLD JR. FOUNTAIN PEN JANESVILLE, WIS LUCKY CURVE U.S.A. PAT 4-25-11". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. The barrel and cap have excellent overall color matching.
This Junior 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 PEN MADE IN U.S.A. imprint. The actual writing portion (iridium) of the 14K Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .85mm 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 .61mm to .78mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that is 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 Junior size and is a good example from Parker in the hard to find Mandarin celluloid. I would consider this Parker grade in Fine to Very Fine Condition. This Parker Jr. Duofold is in ready to write condition or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
