Details

Type  Vintage fountain pen in excellent working condition

Product Name  Parker Duofold, Streamline. We are not sure of the exact model, it could be a Special or a Long Junior. This is the bandless (no cap band) version. The Parker Duofold Special was the same width as a Duofold Junior but longer, but this pen seems a little slender to us.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, USA -- 1930s, the Streamline Duofolds came out in 1929.

Length  4-15/16"

Filling System  The fountain pen is a button filler. It has been restored with a new sac. 

Color Solid black pen with smooth cap. Permanite. This is a bandless cap with the clip as the only trim. There is no indentation on the cap to indicate that it ever had a band. It has a single line barrel imprint.

Nib  Flexible Broad Italic 14k nib. It is smooth and has very strong line variation. Unflexed it writes between a medium and broad cursive italic. When flexed the line variation increases. See the writing sample below.

Condition  Superior condition. There are no cracks and it has a clear imprint. The pen is smooth and has no major scratches. It has a nice silhouette without the cap band. The color is consistent and the blind cap fits flush against the barrel. There are a few marks around the clip band a little bit of plating wear on said clip band. The pen has been fully restored and is working well.

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.
