Type Fountain pen, very slender, with an interesting nib
Product Name Parker Classic aka International Classic
Manufacturer and Year Parker, France. -- 1986 (the date code is a clear YC indicating 1986). The full imprint is YCG, which we have not seen before.
Filling System Takes Parker-style cartridges and converters. Because the barrel is quite slender not all Parker converters will fit. An early style squeeze converter is installed. The modern Parker piston converter does not fit.
Color Lined gold with gold plated trim. Black section with little squares.
Nib Medium Parker gold plated steel triangular nib. There is an M on the nib collar. Its design is based off of the Parker 180 reversible nib but it wasn't advertised as such.
Condition Near mint condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. This is a slim, elegant pen, that glows and shimmers. The cap has a faint scratch above the cap lip. The barrel, clip and trim look fantastic. There's a small amount of corrosion on the stainless steel ring near the nib. The imprints are clear.
