I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Replaced the old sac with a new, properly sized rubber sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Parker Clip, Cap Banding, and 14K Duofold NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel, blind cap and cap to bring back the vibrancy of fountain pen and to protect the Celluloid. This Parker Duofold is the Senior Size and measures 5 1/8" capped and 6 3/8" 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 and displays no brassing. The cap banding displays rich gold filled color, again, with no brassing. The barrel is stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER PARKER DUOFOLD FOUNTAIN PEN MADE IN U.S.A.", the "PARKER DUOFOLD" is lighter than the rest of the stamping. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. The Burgundy color of this Parker is excellent.
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 14K that writes smoothly. The actual writing portion (iridium) of the 14K Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .79mm 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 .67mm and the double broad line measures at 1.30mm with medium to firm pressure 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 Parker Quink Blue Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This vintage Parker Senior Streamline Duofold Fountain Pen is exceptional. I would consider this Parker to grade in Excellent Condition. It is ready to write or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
