Are Parker 45S Still Being Made?

I've found this pen for sale on a local site with the price dropping over a few weeks. It is brand new still in the modern sort of bubble pack packaging, apparently won in a competition and unwanted. I recall my father having an all steel Parker pen when I was a kid back in the 70s that, from images found on the net, I believe was probably a Flighter 45 so I will probably bid for this pen. Just wondering how old it might be.

I would suggest you do some searching around here on P-45s.

 

That model with the Cabochon on top is the last rendition of the pen made. IMO (and others) it's the least desirable one too.

 

Go for an earlier model with a 14k nib instead.

Thanks, I've already committed to buy it. I'm not so much interested in the value from a collector's point of view as I am just for a nice pen to use. I'm getting it for R300 (±$ 30 US at current rates) which I think is reasonable. Most pen purchases I make have to come from overseas with shipping being a killer. Even a $20 Noodler's Konrad cost me over $31 once shipping was added.

The change of cap top design occurred in 2001, so that pen is from the last decade of production.

I have a NOS 1996 flighter and it's a fantastic everyday pen to use.
