Hi, I just came across this model, and I'd like to know of anything particular to look out for (design flaws, maintenance issues) when hunting for one and if possible what kind of pricing for a good (no scratches, no damage repaired) unrestored specimen.

 

I tried to search here for info specific to the 100, but the search results came back with a lot of unrelated item, most likely because of the rather generic "100" name.

 

Thanks in advance.

Just google "Parker 100" (including the quotation marks) and you'll get a lot of hits, inluding some from right here on FPN.

Scratches like all lacquered pens Flow isn't that good with these pens.Here is an ebay listing that shows a used example with a few issues. A nice one will cost you. Likely £150 to 250

Based upon my history -- my first one had to be sent in for service when the "fingers" in the cap were scraping off the blue finish on the section.

I have a number of 100's. Beautiful pens, great writers and superbly made.
