Here's an odd question:


I recently ran across an early Parker Duofold Pencil in a box marked "Parker Pencil Patented March 22, 1921." I checked and there's only 2 patents that were issued for pencils on that date: 1,372,296 and 1,372,354: both were issued to Charles Keeran (inventor of the Eversharp Pencil) and assigned to Autopoint Pencil.


The Duofold Mechanism appeared to have been covered by George Gilman's patent number 1,632,371, which was applied for in November, 1921 but wasn't granted until June 14, 1927. I can't figure out what part of Charles Keeran's designs were incorporated into the Duofold pencil. Did Parker "borrow" a patent date from Autopoint (either with or without its consent) just to ward off the copycats while their application was pending, or am I missing another patent?

Here I uploaded a collection of them that can be seen at a glance 50 Parker patents containing, among others, patents US2,187,528 and US2,282,840 as inspiration of Parker "51"

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
