Product Name  Parker 45 Insignia, also sometimes called the Signet. Insignia refers to the gold filled cap and body.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, USA -- 1965-70.

Length  5-3/8", this is the first of the three versions of the Parker 45 Insignia and the thickest one. It seems fatter than other Parker 45s even though it is the same length.

Filling System  Fountain pen takes Parker cartridges, or you can fill it with bottled ink via the installed Parker squeeze converter. 

Color  1/10th 12k gold filled cap and barrel with black end piece and section. The gold filled pattern is grouped sets of lengthwise lines. The cap and barrel have conical tassies.

Nib  EXTRA FINE 14k nib made in the USA. It's smooth and and a little springy. The section is labeled X and it seems to match the nib.

Condition  Excellent condition. The pen has no cracks or personalization. The edge of the cap tassie is not smooth and the black end piece has bite marks. There are polishing marks and microscratches throughout that dull the general appearance of the pen but there aren't any real scratches or major plating wear. The clip has some plating wear on the edges. There's a nick in the edge of the collar/hood as can be seen in the nib photos. No dents. The cap imprint is clear.

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 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.
