I think that the earliest Parker pens bearing the Christian Olsen anchor logo are streamlined Duofolds, so early 1930s.

I can confirm that there are streamlined Duofolds with the Christian Olson Anchor:

this is a Senior pen and pencil set:

I understood that Christian Olsen initially imported Parker pens from the USA and England, either as parts or as complete pens, and that the anchor logo was stamped at the Olsen factory on these imported pens. Accordingly, these pens have an original "Made in USA" (cfr Christof's pen) or "Made in England" (cfr your pens) barrel imprint.

 

Later on (1940s?), Christian Olsen manufactured complete Parker pens under Parker licence at the Olsen factory in Copenhagen. These Parker pens are imprinted "MID" Made in Denmark.

Tangentially related, so I hope it's OK to ask this here. Today I acquired a Parker Duofold with an Aerometric filler, from a seller in Denmark. The barrel is marked "M.I.D." presumably for "Made in Denmark," and the nib likewise is stamped "D". But the sleeve of the Aerometric filler is marked "London, England." Is this a common assemblage of parts, or am I looking at miscellaneous parts put together by someone other than the manufacturer? Thanks for your insights and experience...

Just to add: I have a Duofold senior and special that are not the streamlined models with the anchor logo. I'll upload some pictures when I have a bit more time. Christian Olsen started importing Parkers and at some point during the 1920s added the anchor logo. Christian Olsen - or rather Penol - started producing Vacumatics in Denmark inthe 1930s. I have several Vacumatics with just the imprinf 'Parker Vacumatic' and the Christian Olsen logo, so without a marking of 'made in the USA' or 'Made in Canada'. I don't know how much of the process happened in Denmark, or whether all parts were imported and the pen simply assembled in Denmark.The anchor logo can be found on quite a range of Parker pens. I have Parker 51s, 61s and 45s with the anchor logo.

 

Penol made the new Duofold in Denmark. The first of these were marked by the anchor logo and often carry a nib inscribed with NGI (Nordisk Guldpenne Industry: Nordic Gold pen (or nib) Industry). This was later replaced by M.I.D. for Made in Denmark, with nibs marked with D, also for Denmark. The sleeves on all the Danish Aerometric Duofolds I own have the marking 'London, England'. So it seems this part was imported from England.
