What nib you got with this pen? Is it heavier than other 75 Parkers?

Hello jchch1950,

 

The nib is a fine nib and the weight without the converter is 21.5 grams

Lucky guy!  Those are rare.

 

I thought I had bought one on Ebay once, but when it arrived it was a Parker 35, which is slightly smaller than the 75, rarer, and came in the same finishes.  Damn!   :unsure:
