On the surface, this looks like the classic Parker 75 in sterling silver with the "cisele" design. Made in France and completely dent-free, you'll find a little wear on the "cap band" and top tassie. There are monotone golden dinner plate ends on the pen. Yet, once you pull off the cap, you'll see what looks to us like a Premier-model section and 14k gold nib. The Premier kept a similar nib to the 75, but the section—grip—is more rounded than the triangular 75 sections. With a light touch, the nib writes a very dry, extra-fine line. HOWEVER, it has a springy nib that when used slowly and gently has some nice flex. There's a little feedback, but it is worth the semi-flex ability. It fills with modern Parker converters and cartridges, but it comes with neither. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.9cm capped.
