I want to ID a Parker that my uncle gave me to sell it on eBay (bottom 2 photos). I need some history on it. The barrel is imprinted with Geo. S. Parker - Parker - Made in USA." The date code is a '9' with 3 dots below. The nib says, "Parker Pen Made in USA." I found what seems to be a close match on Penncollector.com. using their "Pen Identifier Tool." The caption reads, "A ring top Depression pen from around 1934, stepped clip screw, ring top and 3 cap bands." The pen in their photo (with white background) shows no clip attached from what I can see. Is that because the depression economy made clips optional? Thanks for reading, I thank anyone in advance for info such as to what product line this pen belongs to. Thanks for reading!
I would really appreciate some advice I have a pen for sale on ebay that I have made some presumptions about based on an internet search and hope not to mislead in the advert but on the other hand dont want to sell myself short. the pen has a 14k nib says Parker Moderne made in canada on the side and has a cap at the base which unscrews, there is though nothing under the cap and I believe there should be a plug or something similar (no idea on terminology!) I am slightly confused as to whether this is a depression/ thrift pen or not. Is it correct some were made in Canada and some in the USA? any advise would be most welcome regards 22johnny22
