Vintage Parker Victory (includes writing sample)

Description:

Vintage Parker Victory from the 1940s. 14k gold nib which writes beautifully - lovely and wet - this is genuinely one of the best writers in my collection. This is despite the fact that the nib and feed are misaligned and the tines are also out of alignment. If you hire this pen, please do not try to adjust them - I like them the way they are!

Nib is stamped "N" - I do not know what that means but it writes like a medium.

Dimensions:

Length unposted: approx 119mm

Length posted: approx 159mm

Condition:

Decidedly average: nib/feed misaligned, tines misaligned, lots of plating missing from the clip and cap band, button filler is very hit-and-miss, barrel and cap covered in micro scratches from years of use.

Blemishes:

See above.

Replacement Value:

£40 (eBay search for one in similar condition)

Shipping:

Shipping cost is for UK only. Not available to hire outside the UK.

Packaging:

Pen will be posted in a re-usable box. Please return in this box.

Other instructions:

None

Choice of ink:

The pen is currently inked with Diamine Indigo. I would prefer to keep this ink in the pen because cleaning the ink sac is a pain. Thanks!
