I have recently found a fountain Parker pen my dad gave me years ago.

I decided today I wanted to know what model my pen was and a little bit about it or if there is any history.

Since searching the Internet the closest thing I can find is a limited edition blue marble centennial pen however I wondered if anyone could help identify the pen and conferm my guess or not.

I have two of the pens both are fountain and have screw caps. I would also like to know why one of the nibs has become discoloured and if there is anything I can do. Thank you and any advise is much appreciated

They seem to be Parker Duofold in Blue Marble.from 1988-89. Not limited edition, but the first incarnation of modern Duofolds.

Do you also have any idea how much they may sell for? I love them but I never use them.

I have a fountain pen and ballpoint in this color, purchased just after they were released in 1988. You can tell that you have the original model by the gold bands, which are flush with the surface of the pen, rather than raised, and the thinner clip. There may have been some limited editions in this style, but the only one I know of is the American Express green marble in the International size.


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.
