I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and NIB. Replaced the old sac with a new Silicone sac to help preserve the color. Hand polished the Gold Filled Parker Clip, 2-Ring Cap Banding, and 14K Duofold NIB. 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 fountain pen. This Parker Duofold is the Senior Size and measures 5 1/2" capped and 6 1/2" posted.
The fountain pen cap, barrel, and blind cap are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The Cap has a Gold Filled Parker Clip with PAT SEPT 5 - 16 stamped and has been polished to shine bright - just a touch a wear on the high point of the ball of the clip. This Parker Sr. Duofold has the 2-Ring cap banding that displays rich gold filled color with no brassing - the 2-Ring Cap Banding is a bit more uncommon than finding a single cap band Senior Duofold. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER DUOFOLD 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 color of this Parker is good, but will notice the barrel is a tad darker than the cap.
This Senior Duofold has a button filling mechanism and I have tested with water and fills as it should. Works fantastic and as designed to.
The Parker Senior Duofold NIB is 14K that writes extremely smoothly. The actual writing portion of the 14K Parker NIB has a broad point measuring roughly 1.14mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .66mm with very light pressure and the double broad line measures at 1.28mm with medium pressure when measured with digital calipers. Again, I must say this nib writes buttery smooth. 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 Parker Quink Blue-Black Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is an Iconic vintage Parker Duofold Fountain Pen in the senior size in hard to find Lapis. I would consider this Parker grade in Fine to Very Fine Condition. The Parker Senior Duofold is a beautiful pen and fits well in larger hands. It is ready to write or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
