Parker 75 Ecossais pens are rare designs for the famed 75 line. Ours is dent free and very attractive, but it also puts us in a unique dilemma. Parker 75 pens date back to the vintage pen era in the 1960s...but this one was made in the 1990s. It isn't really vintage...and, yet, it kinda is. You can fill it with modern Parker cartridges or converters. It comes with an original converter that is barely working, at best. Its single quirk is that the barrel is darker than the cap and won't buff up to the cap's luster. Its 14k gold nib is marked medium, but we find it writes more like an extra-fine-to-fine nib with a little feedback. The black section is a little discolored. 12.8cm capped.
