Description

Details

Type  Ballpoint pen

Product Name  Parker 180 Place Vendome, based off of the trim and pattern.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, France -- 1980-83, the pattern was introduced in 1980 and gold nibs were discontinued in 1983.

Length  The fountain pen is 5-1/4" and the ballpoint pen is 5"

Filling System  The fountain pen takes Parker-style cartridges and converters. A squeeze converter is installed. The ballpoint pen takes Parker-style ballpoint refills. A working black refill is installed.

Color  The "Ecorce" is a bark or brush marked like pattern in gold plating. The Place Vendome series of designs were all gold plated. This is sometimes also called a basket weave pattern. It has a dish tassie and a long arrow clip.

Nib  FINE 14k nib. The Parker 180 nibs were meant to be reversible with two nib sizes. This pen is reversible but only has "F" written on the underside. This indicates that it writes like a Fine on both sides.

Condition  Excellent condition. The ballpoint pen has small splotch of plating wear on the cone whereas the fountain pen has one small pitting mark to the left of the clip. Both have small dings on the bark patterning and dents on the edges of the tassies. The ballpoint pen has additional plating wear on the tassie.  They look good in hand and ship in a velvet covered Parker box (the box has a few blemishes left by a rubber band).

Policies

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
