Parker Duofold Senior, Flex Nib. Oversize button-filler in “Burgundy” celluloid, an attractive user with a notably flexible and responsive nib. Low starting price as there are a few condition issues, mostly of concern to collectors seeking pristine examples. The most apparent is the wear to the clip and cap bands, as well as the scoring across the back of the blind cap. The nib is also a slightly later (1942 date code) factory replacement, and it has the beginnings of a stress line from the side of the vent hole (see photos). Pretty much all of these issues can be dealt with if desired (replating, nib replacement/repair, etc), but the pen can also be used quite satisfactorily as is. The pen has been thoroughly and professionally reconditioned. A new sac has been installed and the nib and feed assembly ultrasonically cleaned and flushed. The nib has been tested and adjusted for optimum smoothness and performance. Guaranteed ready to write! We strongly believe in full and explicit description of any condition problems or flaws, and in very conservative grading.
