Type  Button fill fountain pen

Product Name Parker Deluxe Challenger is labeled on the barrel but "Deluxe" generally refers to a triple cap band like this one has.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, USA -- 1937 (The date code on the barrel is 47, indicating that it was made in the fourth quarter of 1937.)

Length  5-1/8"

Filling System  Button filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working well.

Color Black with a trio of narrow cap bands. The cap has a black jewel in it and the clip is the flat tapered one. The trim is gold filled.

Nib  FINE gold Parker Pen nib, marked with 37, indicating that it was made in the third quarter of 1937. It is springy and writes like a fine-medium with some flex. The nib has some scratches near the tip, but this does not affect the way it writes. See writing sample below. 

Condition  Very nice condition. The trim is a bit worn with some brassing on the clip and the bands around the cap. The jewel on the cap has a small chip out of the edge. The nib has above-mentioned scratches. Barrel imprint is fairly clear but with some wear, and the barrel also shows minor capping and posting marks. No cracks, chips, or dents in the body of the pen. It's fully restored and working well. The viewing window is clear.

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.
