Dear All,

 

This pen was in a recent auction lot.  I don't know which model number should be attached to it or anything very much about it.  I'm hoping that those who have far greater experience than I do can provide me with more information.  As far as I can tell, the nib is damaged beyond repair and I don't know whether to junk the pen or consider a repair.

 

All info gratefully received!

 

Many thanks in anticipation,

 

S

 

The pen measures 41/4 " or 11 cm capped.  It is gold-filled.  The top of the clip is marked 'PAT SER 5-16' followed by the Parker name.  The only other marking/imprint is at the base of the cap where it reads 'Parker Fountain Pen Gold Filled Patent Pen.'

The barrel is engraved with alternating lines and a diamond pattern.  There is no engraving on the cap. The pen is a button filler.

The feed is a typical 'Lucky curve' type feed (sorry about the poor quality phone photo).  The nib is damaged and I don't know whether it is original to the pen.

The nib is not the original one, but a later English example.
Instead of repairing this nib, I would look for an original Lucky Curve nib.

Thanks @daffie.  This is a useful suggestion.  Only problem is that I don't know which type of 'Lucky Curve'  nib matches this model.

 

Would be grateful for this info if anyone knows.

 

Many thanks,

Maybe a number '2' Lucky Curve nib, but I am not sure.
An expert will know it more exactly, I think.
