Type  Vintage mechanical pencil working very well.

Product Name  Parker Duofold aka "Duovac."  We're not sure which fountain pen this would have matched, since it has a 1/8" wide smooth cap band.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, USA - 1941 (the date code marking is clear, .1.).

Length  5-1/8" 

Filling System  Takes 0.9mm, or "thin" lead, which it extends by the traditional twist-method. We'll include a small container of vintage leads.

Color  They called this finish Blue, it's a pattern of black then silver and blue stripes. Gold plated trim with a 1/8" cap band and a black cap jewel.

Condition  Excellent condition.  The body of the mechanical pencil has scratching, with a few clusters of scratch marks and a few longer thin scratch lines.  There is plating wear on the trim ring and the cone. The jewel is in excellent condition.  The clip is in excellent condition.   The color looks great and the imprint is clear.  There are no cracks or chips.  Even with the scratching, the pencil is very shiny and the color variation is quite striking.  The pencil is working very 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 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.
