This Parker Duofold Junior was made, in England, in the late 1950s.
The pen is in first class condition with a deep surface finish, clear imprint, and Gold filled trim.
It is finished in Black with Gold filling to the clip and decorated cap band. The nib is the correct 14 Ct. Gold No.10, it writes with a smooth, consistent line with enough 'softness' to give a pleasing line variation.
The Parker Duofold Junior does not live up to its name in one respect: it is by no means a small pen. At over 6 inches in length when posted it is a very long and elegant pen with a very good balance and feel. The final photograph shows the pen alongside a Parker 51 from around the same period.
At the moment the Parker Duofold Junior is much underrated but that is sure to change, particularly for a pen in such fine condition. It is very difficult to identify a new pen with a Gold nib of this quality and 'breeding' at anywhere near the price!
