Description

Details

Type  Vintage Aerometric filling fountain pen.

Product Name  New Standard Duofold. We don't really know the difference between the Standard and the New Standard but since this is a later version, we are going with New Standard.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in England -- 1952 (The date code on the barrel is a 2 and English Duofolds officially adopted aerometric systems in 1953 but the Duofold Standard was discontinued in 1961. The nib also has an N on it which up until the mid 1950s identified the pen as made in Newhaven).

Length  New Standard size, about 5-1/8 inches long.

Filling System  Aerometric squeeze filler like the later Parker 51s and the Parker 21s. We've tested it and it's working well.

Color  Blue with gold plated trim and a blue cap jewel. 1/8" wide cap band with a chevron pattern (which looks sort of like this:  ////\\\\////\\\\).

Nib  BROAD open nib is marked Parker Duofold 14k Pen N. The N means it was made in Newhaven. It writes very smoothly with lots of tipping material.

Condition  Excellent condition. The pen has handwear and the barrel imprint is a bit worn. There is a bit of warping on the barrel from posting and capping. There are a few marks on the trim and a little plating wear. No cracks or chips, dings or dents, personalization. It's working very well.

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.
