Streamlined Parker Duofolds are a hard-to-find treasure. This pencil is a great find. It is nearly 100 years old, and it shows only a little wear, but not much for its age. There's a little brassing on the ball of the clip. It works well, advancing and retracting its 1.1mm lead with a twist of the orange permanite tail cap. Under the cap is the hardened old eraser. Under that are a few spare leads. A couple wear spots keep its imprint from being perfect, but it is legible. Not an oversized pencil, it looks average sized. 12cm capped.
