This is for a matte black Parker Sonnet with a personalization of "John Livick."  John was supposed to be a Parker exec who also worked for successor company owners.  There is some history there, murky to me.  The pen is never inked, fine gold plated nib, and it comes in a  Parker box.  I never used this pen after buying it, and I surmise I bought in my Sonnetmania period.  I have enough Sonnets that sorta, kinda work, and don't see a requirement for keeping this one.  If you would like it, add a post.  If there is more than one post, I'll random pick a winner.  I'll let this run a week to see if anybody wants it.

Don't have many pens (my grandfather's osmiroid and a pilot metro) and was really thinking it'd be nice to have a new edition to my growing obsession! I'd appreciate it if I were considered as well!
