For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Circa 1969 Parker 45 Flighter Deluxe Fountain Pen with 14K Stub Nib. This fountain pen has been taken apart, ultrasonically cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful writing condition.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Polished the Gold Electroplate Clip, Cap, and Barrel. I have cleaned the 14K Nib and Feed/Stem, and Section. This Parker 45 is a Flighter Deluxe model made between 1965 and 1969 with the Black Tail. This Parker 45 measures 5 3/8" capped and 5 3/4" posted.
The fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no dings, dents, or repairs with the slip cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The Cap Lip is stamped with, "PARKER MADE IN U.S.A. with Parker Logo". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel.
This Parker 45 has an ink converter filling unit and I have tested with water and fills as it should. It is a Parker factory ink converter.
The Parker 45 is fitted with a 14K STUB and is a great writer. When measuring the actual tip of the 14K NIB it measures at .55mm when measuring with digital calipers. The nib will write with a fine stroke/line of .44mm on the horizontal lines and 1.25mm in the downstrokes when measures with digital calipers under normal writing pressure. The writing sample provided in the listing images was completed with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Black Ink.
This Parker 45 Flighter Deluxe Fountain Pen is a great workhorse fountain pen that is also a fantastic writer with that "signature" stub (great for signatures). I would consider this Parker 45 to grade in Excellent Condition. It is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection.
