I've been hunting in vain for the black barrel-end jewel for an old green jade Parker flattop. Any tips for where I might go? I've been watching the bay for one I can harvest, but I hate to pay the price of a pen to get a part.
What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?

Do you need a blind cap for a Duofold? If so what size and what style? Lots of us have parts bins but without a picture it would be hard to help. With blind caps one often needs to sit there with the box and try them all until you find one that fits well.

I sing the praise of the Battersea Pen Home :

They even found an orange trim P25 FP cap for me - years after I asked.

Thanks, I'll post a picture. I'm not sure the pen is a Duofold. I've only seen it called a flattop. I'll post a picture.
