Measures 5 1/2 inches with cap on. It is an early pen, with the yellow threads and a slightly raised cap band. It is in great overall condition, with some minor wear. Note the flat top cap has a portion that is slightly rounded. Also, the clip seems to have a slight bend and some brassing? Please look at the pics to judge for yourself. The imprint is crisp and clear, with no monograms. The nib writes smoothly, though the sample was done by dipping the pen in ink, resulting in areas that are a bit uneven. Should be nicer when filled and writing. The nib is marked Parker Duofold Made in U. The sac is replaced, and the button pushes smoothly, resulting in a strong puff of air. It should fill nicely. The button is tarnished. Has a Christmas tree feed. I do not see any cracks around the cap or barrel edges. NOTE: When asked if I could unscrew the top cap and replace the clip, I have discovered the cap seems to be stubborn, and not willing to move. The photos are part of the description. Occasionally, the post office requires a person to sign for the package when the value is high enough.
