Hello! I'm not very knowledgeable about vintage pens, bescause I preffer pens without scratches on them, so I restrict myself at buying mostly modern pens, but I found this Parker 75 at a reasonable price in a pretty good condition. Is this an original exemple? I'm curious because it looks in too good of a condition to me. It is posted as NOS though, and no box.

Yes, and it is an old enough model that it has the ring at the nib, used to adjust ink flow.  Later models did not have this feature. 

It has no notable corrosion on the ring, which was a known problem when certain inks were used in the pen.

The chrome ring's purpose was so the user can rotate the nib into a position comfortable for the user.....Nada on flow.....

First year for ring with zero 1964 and in 1968 the zero was omitted.....For more detailed info re sections..mosey on over 

to Parker75dotcom Reference Sections....Good resource and 'tis free......

nice one, lucky buyer who got it!

wait...do you think... it might be our friend from some threads ago?

so we managed to convince him that NOS 75s still exist?!...

and he's overcome his fears of buying infected used pens?! :lticaptd:

 

(incidentally, Freddy, Joe's Garage is one of my favourite Zappa's, don't have in LP though (drat), but do have Grand Wazoo in LP... :) )
