Help With Identifying This Early Gold-Filled Model Please

Dear All,

 

This pen was in a recent auction lot. I don't know which model number should be attached to it or anything very much about it. I'm hoping that those who have far greater experience than I do can provide me with more information. As far as I can tell, the nib is damaged beyond repair and I don't know whether to junk the pen or consider a repair.

 

All info gratefully received!

 

Many thanks in anticipation,

 

S

 

The pen measures 41/4 " or 11 cm capped. It is gold-filled. The top of the clip is marked 'PAT SER 5-16' followed by the Parker name. The only other marking/imprint is at the base of the cap where it reads 'Parker Fountain Pen Gold Filled Patent Pen.'

The barrel is engraved with alternating lines and a diamond pattern. There is no engraving on the cap. The pen is a button filler.

The feed is a typical 'Lucky curve' type feed (sorry about the poor quality phone photo). The nib is damaged and I don't know whether it is original to the pen.

The nib is not the original one, but a later English example.

Instead of repairing this nib, I would look for an original Lucky Curve nib.

Thanks @daffie. This is a useful suggestion. Only problem is that I don't know which type of 'Lucky Curve' nib matches this model.

 

Would be grateful for this info if anyone knows.

 

Many thanks,

 

S

      @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!
