[SOLD]1950 Parker Parkette $38
[SOLD]Parker Parkette 1950 production date
Black with a chrome cap. This Parkette from 1950 is in very good shape. The hooded nib of this Parkette is reminiscent of a 51. While the 50's Parkette is not as nice as the older Parkettes they are great smooth writers. Chrome cap is very good condition. Lever is smooth. Imprints are good on left half, but right half is a little worn. Looks better in person, and I can see the "50" which is production yet on the right although doesn't show in the pics. There is still the "Parkette" sticker on the barrel which reads, "Parkette, F*3 something which I can't make pass the 3. Nib is XF-Med+. Has a touch of flex and a bit springy. Great smooth reliable writer. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm dotted HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 14cm capped, 14.5cm posted, and 12.4cm unposted.
