If you are seeking perfection in a black streamlined senior Parker Duofold, this is a close as you might ever get. No cracks, no brassing, no scratches, no wear. The only flaw we can find is a slight impression over the "UO" in the Duofold imprint, and that was likely a factory-made kiss of imperfection...the mortality that wasn't drained from Achilles' heel when he was held over the fire as an infant. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac, for anyone who might want to take it of a museum for a spin. There's a "Christmas tree" inkfeed, you will write a medium line with the 14k gold nib. It feels a little "sharp" and dry when written with on a dip. 13.1cm capped.
