I was wondering if anyone who is knowledgeable about rare Parker 75s could tell me anything about this pen. I got it some years ago from my grandfather when he was alive and it had been tucked away safely in a box for years. Recently I got it out and decided to do some research on it but I couldn't find anything specific about this finish and who might have made it. It has the 750 hallmark on it and hallmarks on the jewels, clip, nib and body. 

 

I would be grateful for any info anyone might have on it!

 

Thank you,

 

Saam

Looks to be an overlay by Boucheron.

Terrific pen and very collectible and valuable.

Even more special that it belonged to your grandfather.

 

Here's a link to a write up on the ballpoint.

Additionally the pattern on your pen.

Matches this.

 

Prototype at Lin Tah and they are scarce as hen's teeth.

Thank you for the response! I wish I could find some more photos online of one and the year it might have been made. I guess the lack of them is a good thing?!
