For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Clean Restored Circa 1930 Parker Senior Duofold Fountain Pen in Red Celluloid. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, ultrasonically cleaned and put back together and is now in wonderful writing condition.

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, 2-Ring 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 model that measures 5 3/8" capped and 6 1/2" posted.

The fountain pen cap, barrel, and blind cap are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs with the cap always securing to the barrel. The color on the celluloid is even and very clean. 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 brassing on the highest point of the clip. The 3-ring cap banding displays rich gold filled color with a touch of brassing on the lower ring in one area. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER DUOFOLD MADE IN U.S.A. PATENTED". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel.

This Duofold has a button filling mechanism and I have tested with water and fills as it should. Works fantastic and as designed to.

This Parker has the 14K Parker Duofold NIB. The iridium tip measures .63mm when measured with digital calipers. The NIB writes very smooth with a wet line. When writing a sample, this NIB writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has the medium stroke that measures .64mm and can flex to a double broad stroke of roughly 1.46mm with medium pressure. The 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 is an Iconic vintage Parker Streamline Senior Duofold Fountain Pen with smooth, semi-flexible nib that is very clean. I would consider this Parker grade in Very Fine to Excellent Condition. It is ready to write with or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
