Parker Premier ballpoint in Gold plated 'Grain d'Orge. Totally mint.

Regular price £125.00

Tax included.
The Parker Premier was introduced in 1983 as an upgraded, and more expensive, replacement for the Parker 75.   As the name suggests the Premier was the top of the range Parker pen.

The provenance of this ballpoint dates it to 1988, or very close. the finish is the much sought after Gold plated 'Grain d'Orge', barleycorn in English.  The original clip tag is labelled as 'Gold plated' and 'Plaque Or' as the pen was manufactured in France.  

The clip is secured by a Gold plated, faceted, 'two coin' cap stud.  The faceted  motif is repeated in the central band between barrel and cap.
The original ink refill had dried through age and lack of use so it has been replaced with a new Parker refill.  These are readily available online or from most stationers.

A relatively short production run, the high original price, and superb quality make the Parker Premier very collectable.  A mint,  Silver example, such as this pen, becomes available very infrequently.

The pen is part of a special collection created in the 1980s as a presentation to businessmen promoting Parker pens as prestigious business gifts. They have been left untouched since then so are now available for sale for the first time. Please contact me if you would like information about the whole collection.

The Premier will be sent by Royal Mail, special next day delivery.
