    Parker Duofold Age and material

    Hello pen experts: I recently acquired three Parker Duofolds. Two are identified as a Junior and a Lady. I am only showing the barrel and section on the third one as it did not come with a cap. Here are my questions: Is the imprint shown on each the medium imprint or the giant imprint? What is the approximate age of each? Are these pens hard rubber or permanite? I guess it depends on their age. I tried the rubbing and smell test, and it was inconclusive to me. Is the barrel shown from a Senior or a Special? It is .52 inches wide, and came with a Parker arrow nib, not shown which could have been a replacement. The feed was not ribbed. Thank you.

    Pelican 140,

    i found a pelican 140 for about $80 us. how do i know if i am getting a 40s or 50's etc pen? the nib says 14c 585, and has the pelican logo on it. is this a semi flex nib or the ultra semi flex? how do i know how flexie this nib is by looking at a picture? the seller claims it is in perfect working order, i am on the fence with this purchase, can anyone help?
  3. Hi all I have a bottle of P de L which is about mmm maybe six years old. I haven't used it for ages, but had a sudden yearning but it's not really behaving very well in my TWSBI Eco 1.1. (The colour is to die for though.) It's not flowing at all well and I remember it being reasonably wet. So, it struck me that it may have gone off - any experience with this? I'd be sad to lose the bottle, but would definitely buy some more.
  4. I know this is taboo! The image that most people have about fountain pen users is that they were born before World War I. Fountain pens were popular back then, but it seems that lately, the popularity has regained in the younger crowd. I am interested in knowing how old F-P users are.
  5. Okay, so it's partly my own fault, but... ...two years ago at the Dallas Pen Show, I purchased this beautiful little Majestic vest pen? I call it a vest pen as it's small. I did not take reading glasses along with me at that time and my eye sight wasn't perfect. So, I took the pen on good fait that all was well. (Perhaps the seller's eye sight was as bad as mine!) Long story short, I went to clean/use the pen for the first time tonight (don't start with me as this is the third tiny pen I had acquired) and I decided to look and see if the nib had any flex. I started to gently press the nib on my nail and suddenly, I felt it give! I had barely even touched it to the nail at this point! Horror upon horrors, I got out the magnifying glass and looked. There was a definite break line across the base of the nib, right before the collar. Ugh!!! You can see it in the photo. It has since broken completely when I gently put it back down on the feed. I decided to clean the pen to see if the vue window would become clear and it pretty much has, but I noticed the underside of the original nib was quite corroded. I have read in the small amount of info I could find, that these nibs were just average at best. Thus I must ask...can replacement nibs be found? And, if not, what size nib would work as a replacement? The nib (unless I can get the tiny part still sticking out of the collar out) doesn't tell what the nib is made of. I'm guessing steal as the color is silver (with gold in the groves up front). Any help on this would be fabulous!! It would also make me feel better, lol! Here are some photos. It's a beautiful little pen!! (The clip is different than all the photos I've seen thus far, so no clue on age.)
  6. Hello FPN, I've discovered the source of the flow issues I've been having with my HS Steel Age fountain pen. Namely, the tines are spread too far apart. I've tried pushing them together and pressing upside down, but the nib material is too springy and just reverts to the original position. Anyone have any ideas on closing this massive tine gap? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hi would anyone be able to identify when this v20 14kt pen was produced? Came across it during a clear out of a relatives home and it has never been used Thanks
