Hello!

Please may you help me to identify this pen?
80% of it seems "45"ish. But the below part, near the ball looks different, no?
This pen looks quite old. Any idea of the year... and maybe price?
Would really appreciate your help.

Thank you very much (and sorry for my bad English).

I believe that when the Parker 45 is closed, the cap diameter fits the body perfectly, on this picture, the cap diameter is bigger than the body at the part where it sits. Also, the pin at the bottom of the pen should be a little longer. Not that I know Parkers, but I was looking into this particular model and unless they had that much cosmetic variances, this doesn't seem right.

 

Edit: It could be a Parker 45 "Deluxe" http://www.fountainp...45-deluxe-sold/

It looks like a 45 Arrow to me, but I've never seen one with a metal end to the barrel.

 

Do you know if it was made in the USA or elsewhere?

I was wondering that too.  Could it be a cap-actuated B/P?

That's my vote.

[EDIT] It's NOT an Arrow FP, I have 3 of those, it surely Could be a matching BP to the Arrow.

Except for the gold tassie (?) On the barrel end it is just like the all plastic made in England 45 I found on the Bay with the factory CI/stub nib. If I recall correctly the all plastic 45 was only made in England. A shot of the nib should settle the question.

Note that it is a BP, not a fountain pen. Look closely.

Just in case there are Still doubters, please refer to the attached pic of one of my Arrow FPs.

Note;

The barrel end Isn't Gold.

Though not entirely clear here, there is a Gold trim ring on the bottom of the cap And Also a Gold clutch ring on the pen. Both are visible when the FP is capped. This BP has No bottom Gold clutch ring.

Hello, experts!
For sure, it is a Ball pen.

 

Here comes another picture, with details... in very bad light, sorry.

 

So, Parker 45 Arrow BP, all plastic. Made in England (written on the pen)... circa 1963-64-65.... ???
