Description

Details

Type  Vintage fountain pen.

Product Name  Parker Duofold Geometric also called "Toothbrush". These were all button fillers. This is the non-patterned version, less common than the ones with the toothbrush design.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in USA -- 1939-40 (The barrel date code on the pen is a clear 9 with no dots and the code on the pencil is a clear 0 with three dots. Both match the production years of this model).

Length  The fountain pen is 5-1/8", this pen came in two sizes: slender (aka junior) and standard. The Juniors were around 4-11/16" long so we are confident this is the standard full size pen. The pencil measure 4-5/8".

Filling System  The fountain pen is a button filler. We restored it with a new sac and it's working very well. The pencil takes "thin" or 0.9mm leads that extend and retract via a twist mechanism. It is working well.

Color  This is the "Gray Toothbrush," design. A slightly green pearlescent gray pattern with nickel plated trim. The fountain pen has a visiometer (partially clear section) to make the pen look like a vacuum filler when it isn't. Both pieces have a black cap jewel and a somewhat wide cap band with an etched line border.

Nib  EXTRA FINE gold Parker Pen USA nib is smooth with nice tipping material and a slight springiness. There is a dent on the feed.

Condition  Excellent condition with very smooth and shiny plastic. Both pieces have plating wear. The fountain pen is discolored and is very yellow. There is a slight indentation in the pen cap and the cap band is covered in fine scratches. The pencil is in much better condition, but the pencil cone is quite brassed. Both pieces have very clear barrel imprints and no major scratches. No cracks or chips. It's very hard to find these without cracks in the cap lip, but we examined this set closely and found no cracks, though the lined pattern can be deceptive.

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.
