The Parker 75 'Laque Collection' began in 1979 and the Black version was introduced in 1987. This pen carries a date code for 1990.
The pen is in excellent condition throughout, the lacquered finish and gold filled trim are pristine. The colour contrasts well with the Gold fill and gives the pen a very classic, distinguished appearance.
The 75 features an adjustable nib position, it can be rotated to give the best contact with the paper for a particular user. The sculpted section facilitates the efficient use of this feature.
The pen is a cartridge/converter filler, it is supplied with a fitted Parker converter and a new ink cartridge so it is ready to write. The box is in clean condition.
The large 14Ct. Gold nib is a really great writer. it produces a very smooth, medium line, perhaps a touch on the broad side. It has a pleasing 'softness' that helps make the pen a very comfortable and 'easy' writer.
The Parker 75 is recognised as one of the best fountain pens ever made in terms of style and performance, they are now very collectable.
