Hi folks, I have had the fountain pen bug for a couple of years now. Have a TWSBI demo (medium nib) which I really like. Decided to take a plunge on a vintage pen and came across this
broad nib Parker Victory Ebay Link, placed a bid and won it.

What exactly do I have here - can anyone identify the exact victory model ? Is there a good website which describes filling this pen ? Any idea as to what I can expect ?

Pictures will best help identify the pen, and also check the Parker section of the forum for a TON of useful intel

    Say that again, I have a pen here somewhere...

Looks like a Parker Victory Mark IV from 1952 with a button fill mechanism. More info on this site: http://goodwriterspe...parker-victory/

Hope this helps!

ParkerPens.net is a fantastic source of information on this pen, here. Another site I found is a blog site, here. Depending on which model it is, you got a pretty darn good deal on that pen. I picked up a Mk I model last year, off the FPN Classifieds, and the material used for the pen is astonishingly beautiful. Mine doesn't have a stub nib, though - nice nib on yours!!!

ETA: looks like Perry beat me to it by linking to the Goodwriterspens blog site.
