Type  fountain pen.

Product Name  Parker 65 Custom

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in England --  1967 - 1982. The maroon color was introduced in 1969.

Filling System  The fountain pen has the "VS" converter with the thin stem. As these are prone to breaking, we did not remove it, however the pen filled well. It does not accept cartridges, as we believe it is the Mark I version of the pen. These converters are very hard to find.

Color  1/10th 12k rolled gold cap with a lined pattern.   Maroon barrel and section with gold trim.   It has pearlescent jewels at either end. 

Nib  MEDIUM-BROAD 14k gold nib is smooth and firm with great tipping material. We are judging it to be a medium-broad, though it's hard to say what the original nib designation was.

Condition  Superior condition for this handsome, shiny pen.  The coloration is deep and rich.  The barrel and section have only light scratching.  The section has some long thin lines of scratching.  The cap also has moderate scratching.  The clip looks beautiful.  The imprints are all perfectly clear.  There are no cracks, dents, deep scratches, or dings.

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.
