Parker Parkette Red-veined Gray Marbled (Pen 2164)

Nib: Fine 14 Kt Parkette

Parkette was a discount line Parker made during the 1930s. They were made to be used, and this one has been, although not in a bad way. There are a few scratches on the cap near the clip and a bit of spreading of the barrel near the clip. The imprint is clear and the date code says this example was made in 1936. The gold nib is fine-to extra fine. The color really is gray, despite the greenish hue thanks to my light box. 4 7/8", 123 mm.
