Medium nib, Twist fill fill system.
This attractive vintage fountain pen and ballpoint set is in a rolled gold overlay pattern Parker called “Stratus’. It is intended to represent a light cloud formation. The “65”, seen as a variation on the “61” was launched by Parker in 1969. As you will see from the montage, instead of an arrow on the shell tip as you have with the “61”, the “65” has a distinctive open cropped gold nib which, it was felt, would offer more flexibility than the “61”. It comes with a matching ballpoint and a Parker presentation box. The fountain pen currently has a twist fill system and will also take modern Parker ink cartridges. The nib has a smooth medium point and the ballpoint is fitted with a new black refill. Condition is very good with minor age wear. The box lid has a crease on the top but is otherwise in good order. (If you would prefer one of our gift boxes then just select it at checkout). The fountain pen measures 134mm with cap on and 145mm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint is 128mm long. This distinctive vintage fountain pen and pencil set will serve very well as everyday writers but will also sit comfortably in a collection illustrating the middle ground of the Parker transition from “61” to “65” and then to the “75”. 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.
