Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to date this parker duofold, Can't find any material on the nib code which helps me to do this. Any help would be much appreciated. Also, i'd like to know how to read the number&dot code on the nibs of some old parkers.

 

Nib has standard markings (parker, 14CT made in england) and at the base has:

 

15 4

. . .

Many thanks!

Hi

 

The English made aerometric duofold was introduced in 1953 and the 15 on the nib should be an indicator that yours is a Demi, unless the nib has been changed at some time.

 

Hope this has been of help and accurate, others will correct me if I am wrong.

A bit of a guess, but if Parker followed the trend from the 51, I'd guess it was made in 1954, during the first quarter of the year. Of course, I could be completely wrong and the 4 could be something totally different like the nib size. Grain of salt.

Calculating.

      @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.
