Parker Urban in ‘Navy Blue’ lacquer - scuff mark where lacquer has been worn away by ‘posting’ the cap.jpeg


Mercian

In case anyone is interested, I took (& have uploaded) this photo to show where I have worn away a small part of the lacquer on this pen’s barrel by ‘posting’ its cap.


I bought this pen in 2013, and I always used to ‘post’ the cap on the back of the pen while writing with it.

In 2022 I discovered this small scuff-mark, where the lacquer has worn away, and through which the brass of the pen’s body can now be seen.

 

I am fairly sure that ‘posting’ the pen is what has caused the scuff-mark, because it is exactly in-line with the clip of the pen when I post it - and because I always ‘post’ the cap in exactly the same way, so that the clip aligns with the pen’s nib.

 

Since I found this small scuff-mark I no longer ‘post’ the nib on this pen, or on any of the other lacquered pens that I own.
