The Parker 75 is one of the most popular fountain pens from the vintage pen era. However, that pen never would have been as popular if it wasn't for its original incarnation as the Parker VP! The V.P. meant Very Personal. What made it and the 75 so personal? The ergonomic section grip AND rotating 14k gold nib! Nibs are stationary in most pens. In the Parker VP, you can carefully rotate the nib in the ergonomical grip to custom fit the writing angle to your hand! Parker only made the pen for a couple years because the glass (or glass-like) ink-view/nipple assembly for the aerometric filler cracked too easily. Luckily for you, the entire filling unit is in great working order on this classic pen. The pen was heavily used and shows wear on the cap and barrel, but there are no cracks. Its original 14k gold nib writes a broad line. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.3cm capped.
