Parker 75s capped - on their sides.jpeg


Parker 75 ‘Place Vendôme’ BP, in gold-plated ‘Grain d’Orge’ finish. Made in France. Date code IE (1988 Q3).

Bought in a shop in mid-1989, so I am confident about this being its date of production.


Parker 75 ‘Place Vendôme’ FP, in gold-plated ‘Grain d’Orge’ finish. Made in France. Date code IE (1984 Q3 or 1988 Q3).

Bought through eBay in 2022, so I do not know which of these two dates is the correct one.


With the pens lying on their sides one can see the area on the gold-plated pens’ caps that was left blank so that the owner could add engraving.


Parker 75 FP in Sterling Silver Ciselé finish. Made in USA. No date code.
But it has ‘dished’ tassies and the ‘Parker’ imprint on its cap-band at the rear, leaving a blank area under the clip on to which one might get one’s initials/monogram/logo engraved. So, it is a post-1970 pen. And the lack of date codes means pre-1979.
