For your consideration, we are offering for sale this absolutely gorgeous Mint, Stickered Restored 1945 Parker Blue Diamond Senior Striped Duofold Fountain Pen in the Dusty-Rose Celluloid. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful writing condition.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, breather tube, and barrel. Replaced the old diaphragm with a new, properly sized one. Hand polished the Gold Filled Blue Diamond Clip, Chevron Cap Banding, and 14K Gold NIB.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the Blue Diamond Gold Filled clip with no wear. Additionally, the cap retains the original "FINE $8.75" Sticker. The Gold Filled Chevron Cap Band displays a wonderful gold-filled color, also, with no wear. The top jewel is black and polished to a great shine The barrel is clearly stamped with, "PARKER DUOFOLD MADE IN U.S.A. with date code 5 (for 1945) in the 1st quarter". The transparency of the barrel is Water Clear as one can easily see through it. The blind cap securely fits. There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. This Senior Parker Duofold Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 6 1/8" posted.
I have restored the Vacumatic filling system with a new diaphragm. The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 10 to 14 presses and it will fill full. This Vacumatic Filling unit is in excellent condition; it has been greased and now operates smoothly and works flawlessly.
This Parker Duofold has the 14K "V" NIB and has a 1945 date code which makes it a marriage to the rest of the pen. The actual writing portion (iridium) of the 14K Parker "V" NIB has a Fine point measuring roughly .57mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample, the NIB writes with an Extra-fine to broad stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has the extra-fine stroke measuring at .38mm with light pressure and can flex to a broad stroke of roughly 1.05mm with medium to firm pressure when measuring 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 is a spectacular Senior Parker Duofold Fountain Pen in the Dusty Rose Celluloid with the original Sticker. I would grade this Parker Striped Duofold in Mint Condition and a true rarity to find with a sticker in the most desirable Dusty Rose color. Certainly, a collector-grade writing instrument and is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection.
