Description

Details

Type  High end modern fountain pen.

Product Name  Duofold Centennial (Mark III, Ace of Spades).

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, UK - 2005 (The date code is a clear TI indicating 2005. This is the first year the checker-patterned pens were produced).

Length  5-3/8".

Filling System  Takes Parker-style cartridges and converters. An unmarked (and therefore probably Aurora) piston converter is installed.

Color  "Check Marine" body with platinum plated trim. The barrel is a checkered pattern of various blues that span white blues to black blues. It has two same size cap bands and an ace of spades emblem in the cap end.

Nib  FINE 18k nib with the ace of spades on it. It is a two-tone nib that has some springiness to it. The feed is labeled F for fine so we're calling it a fine, but the nib really looks like it could be closer to medium.

Condition  Near Mint, just about mint condition. It's "near" mint because we know the pen has been used and the nib has slight usage signs. The pen has nearly no handwear, and just about no polishing marks. The imprints are crisp and there are no dents, scratches, or cracks.

Sorry, no box or paperwork.

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.
