Vintage Pens: Parker 75
Vintage Pens: 1948 Parker 75
In the 1960s, Parker released its last serious luxury fountain pen of the vintage pen era. It was the Parker 75. This one is made of solid sterling silver. Its crosscut design would go on to be featured in many future pens, but it found its footing in this one. There are no dents or blemishes to the cap or barrel, except some roughed up spot around the cap band. The top "tassie" has a two-tone "dish" design, but the bottom one is a monotone dish. It is a French-made pen. The 14k gold nib writes a fine line with a hint of feedback, even though the feed is marked medium. One of the nice things about these pens is that you can gently turn the nib to better suite the angle of your writing style. Plastic section threads, original converter that still works. Will take a modern converter and cartridges! 12.8cm capped.
