Medium nib, Squeezebox fill system.
This exceptionally popular fountain pen range was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. The design, a cross hatched pattern in sterling silver with gold plated trim, is called “Ciselé”. It is said that the finish was inspired by a cigarette case made by a London silversmith. Around the lip of the cap on both fountain pen and ballpoint are the words “Parker Made in U.S.A. Sterling Silver”. The cap crown and barrel end have a gold fill flat tassie. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel which was designed to increase the writer’s grip. The advantage of the “75” nib unit is that the nib collar will rotate if you wish to move the nib to an alternative angle to suit your writing style– note the ruled lines and zero reference mark. This example comes with a smooth medium point nib that states “Parker 14k U.S.A. 66” The section threads are plastic. Filling is by the fitted squeezebox filler unit or by inserting a normal Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow). This attractive vintage fountain pen dating from around 1968, measures 128mm with cap on and 142mm with cap on barrel end. The matching cap activated ballpoint will take current standard Parker refills and measures 129mm. This is an excellent and stylish late vintage fountain pen and ballpoint in a classic Parker design with minor age wear as can be seen in the montage. Both items are a pleasing weight in the hand and fountain pen has a comforting click to the replacement of the cap on the barrel following use. They are suitable for everyday use or to add to a Parker vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.
