For your consideration, we are offering for sale this 1990 Parker Centennial Orange Duofold Fountain Pen & Pencil Special Edition Set. This set comes with the original boxes and Parker literature. This set has never been inked, it is new old stock, and in Mint Condition.
In September of 1990, Parker started advertising a Centennial fountain pen and mechanical pencil set in Orange as a Special Edition. The fountain pens had a crown with the pendulum pattern. There were 1,000 un-numbered sets initially produced but the design became so popular that Parker continued to make them for several years, adding an International sized fountain pen, ball pen, and a roller ball to the line in 1991.
The barrel and cap are gorgeous with gold-plated cap clip and banding. There are absolutely no nicks, chips, cracks, or repairs. The cap on the fountain pen is marked with, "PARKER MADE IN U.K. with Date Code IIIQ or 1990 in the 1st Quarter". The pencil on the 23k Gold Plated Crown is marked with the same as the fountain pen, "PARKER MADE IN U.K. with Date Code IIIQ or 1990 in the 1st Quarter".
The threads on the cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Parker Duofold is a Centennial Size that measures 5 3/8" inches in length capped and 6 7/8" posted. The pencil measures 5 1/4" in length
