I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Replaced the old sac with a new, properly sized silicone sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled 3-Ring Cap Banding, and 18CT Duofold NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, & 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 Lady Duofold Size and measures 4 3/4" capped and 5 3/4" posted.
The fountain pen cap, barrel, and blind cap are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The Cap has the 3-ring cap banding that displays rich gold filled color with no wear. The barrel is stamped clearly with, "GEO. S. PARKER LADY DUOFOLD FOUNTAIN PEN TORONTO, CANADA LUCKY CURVE". The end of the blind cap has the number, "112" stamped on it. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. The Lapis White on Blue color is excellent and very vibrant.
This Duofold has a button filling mechanism and I have tested with water and fills as it should. Works as it is designed to.
The Parker Duofold NIB is 18CT and writes with a wet, smooth, flexible stroke. The actual writing portion (iridium) of the Parker NIB has a broad point measuring roughly 1.03mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a medium to triple broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .66mm and the triple broad line measures at 1.83mm with when measured 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 vintage Parker Lapis Blue Lady Duofold Fountain Pen is exceptional in the condition and color. I would consider this Parker to grade in Excellent+ Condition. It is certainly collector grade and writes wonderfully. It is ready to write or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
