I recently purchased this pen at an estate sale and thought it was a Parker. I am having some second thoughts now since I cannot seem to identify it. The arrow clip looks like Parker but the barrel is stamped with just "PALLADIO". The nib is a "Signature Pen 8". Any ideas who made this pen and if it is a Parker, which model is it? Thanks for your help!

This pen does not resemble any Parker that I have ever seen. I do not know which make it really is but the name "Palladio" does appear in the pen brand list that you can find here (pen 773).

Looks like no Parker I've ever seen either.
Nickle plated trim.

Interesting plastic though.

nope, not a parker, but one of many such lookalikes from the '30s and '40s (i have a mini-collection of such lookalikes). ;)
