Parker Duofolds might be considered the ultimate American pen of the 1920s...this one was made in Toronto, Canada. This junior-size model has a black Permanite cap and barrel with slightly chocolate-hazed black, hard rubber end caps. We restored it with a new ink sac. It has an original Christmas-tree inkfeed, but that feed is not a full Lucky Curve feed, in spite of the fact the barrel is thusly marked. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth, wet fine line. Minimal brassing, but one cap ring is missing. No cracks, but there is wear from use and age. 11.5cm capped.
