I've just purchased this Parker Jotter from Amazon and I'm a bit suspicious because none of my other Jotters have markings like this one on the arrow bit. In the picture I've attached the pen on the left is the one I've purchased, and the one on the right is a Parker Jotter that I've owned for a few months.

Really? :headsmack: That looks like ________ .

I'm glad I do not collect/use any Parker made after 1980.

+1 for the observation about parkers made after 1980[s].

The new parker clip did not impress me at all.

It's an improvement, imo. I'd like it even more if it was the Classic arrow clip, but either way it looks better to me than the old Jotter arrow. :P

Hi, The new style of clip was introduced about April 2016, and about the same time the grey boxes and packaging for QuinkFlow refills and Quink cartridges appeared as well.
