Type button fill fountain pen

Product Name Duette Sr. (also referred to as one of the Thrift Time or Depression pens) ... to make it more confusing, the Canadian Senior pens were called Premiere (marked on the barrel)! The Senior is a little longer than the Junior and is rather fat.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, Canada, 1937 (date marked 17)

Length  5-1/16"

Filling System  This pen is a button filler. We've restored it and it works well. We will guarantee the filling system for a year, but honestly, it should last a good deal longer.

Color Black, gold trim, three cap rings.

Nib  Canadian "Parker Fountain pen" nib is in excellent condition, with lots of tipping material. Medium with some flex and line variation, not true flex but easy flex for every day. See writing sample.

Condition  Excellent + working restored condition with no cracks or deep scratches. The plating on this series was thin, so you'll see wear on the clip. The permanite plastic is excellent with no discoloration or cracks, quite lovely and still very shiny. The imprint is worn but readable.

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.
