Vintage 1928 Parker Duofold Fountain Pen Mandarin Yellow Restored
For your consideration is this restored Parker duofold junior fountain pen in mandarin. This pen is restored – I thoroughly disassembled and cleaned the pen, fitted a new ink sac, and hand polished the pen. It works and writes as intended. There are flaws typical to mandarin duofolds – there are tight cap lip cracks and staining from ink where the cap covered the pen body. Lastly, there is a crack in the nib from the base, which is not too bad and doesn’t affect function. Priced fairly for these flaws – it’s still a mandarin and these are still 1 to 100 to the other Duofold colors. The cap has 2 cap lip cracks. There are no other chips or cracks or scuffs. Full 4-1/2 capped as expected from a flat top Duofold junior. Small lucky curve imprint, which is a bit worn but still legible. Some staining to the left of the imprint. Some staining right under the clip as well. The third picture does a good job at showing the staining compared to the rest of the pen. The gold trim is not bad with a bit of brassing on the ball of the clip. The 2 bands are a little brassed. The BHR cap tube and blind cap have good chasing but are slightly oxidized to a dark brown color. The pen has been restored – thoroughly disassembled and cleaned. New ink sac fitted and tested with water. It takes up alot of ink like it should. The nib and feeder were ultrasonically cleaned. Pen was then re-assembled and tested. The 14k arrow nib is extra fine in width. It has good flow and is smooth for an extra fine nib. This would make a great addition to your collection or as a daily driver.
