Description

Details

Type  Fountain pen with aerometric filing system.

Product Name  New Duofold Senior, "New" was added to the Duofold name when the aerometric system was adopted.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in England -- 1950s or 60s (We couldn't find a date code on the barrel and there wasn't one on the nib, but the English Duofolds adopted aerometric systems in 1953 and the Maxima continued well into the 60s).

Length  5-9/16 inches.

Filling System  Aerometric squeeze filler like that of the later Parker 51s and the Parker 21s. We've cleaned and tested it and it's working very well.

Color  Black cap and barrel with gold plated trim. Thin size cap band with a chevron pattern (it looks sort of like this:  ////\\\\////\\\\). It has a matching black cap jewel.

Nib  BROAD STUB 14k nib is marked 35. It's smooth and springy with great tipping material. It writes like a very wet broad with nice line variation but not as much as a cursive italic would have.The 35 indicates that it's a nib that goes on a Duofold Senior. It's smooth and fairly firm with great tipping material. 

Condition  Excellent + condition. There is a slight indentation on the barrel in line with the cap lip when posted and handwear throughout. Overall the pen is very shiny and without major scratches. There's a few spots of plating wear on the clip, especially on the arrowhead. The imprint is mostly legible with microscratching and fading hindering the reading. The details of the arrow clip and cap band are crisp. No cracks, chips, dents, or scratches. It's working very well.

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%.

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.
