I have been trying to place this black Permanite Duofold, going over again the Duofold book. It has the same Lucky Curve imprint as the 1926 first year Jade Permanite pen. And the same Lucky Curve nib imprint. But it is longer then either the Jade pen or the previous Duofold I have checked, 14.1cm. There are similarities to the model DQ shown in the Duofold book, launched in 1924; the pattern seems the same, as does the imprint, but the nib does not have the DQ imprint and this pen is Permanite. I know this is not an exact science but help would be very welcome.

The fount of kmowledge suggests 1925, the last year of Lucky Curve production

The lucky curve was made for awhile alongside the permanite Duofolds, and your flat top lucky curve shows up still in the 1927 catalog, along with lapis flattop Duofolds, ect. Parker continued to make lucky curve nibbed pens later than that though, into the streamlined era post 1929 ( like the modernistic blue "true blue")

I think your pen is really cool too as the stocky lucky curve pens are harder to find than a similar black duofold.... nice
Regards, Glen
