Parker Victory Mk. IV in Green. 1951.

Regular price £95.00

The Parker Victory Mk. IV was made from 1948 to 1952.  It is an 'A.F' button filler type, the letters denoting an Aluminium Filler.  This pen was made in 1951.

This example, finished in the uncommon dark green colour, is in exceptional condition throughout, could well be described as near mint.  The barrel imprint carries a clear date code for 1951.  It has a first class surface and Gold filling to the clip and cap rings.  These are slightly raised, as in the original 1920s parker Duofolds, the raising of the cap bands seems to have happened during production of the Mk. IV, I have earlier examples with flat cap rings.

The pen has been fully restored to full working order.  This involved full disassembly, a thorough cleaning and checking of all components and replacing the ink sac. After reassembly the pen was given a light polish and fully tested.

The filling system works well and takes up a good volume of ink.  The 14 Ct. Gold nib is stamped with an 'N', it was made in Parker's Newhaven works.   It writes extremely well, laying down a smooth, consistent, fine to medium line. The nib is semi flexible,  it  has the pleasing 'soft' feel that Parker managed to achieve with many of its 14Ct. Gold nibs and offers line variation.  It is an extremely pleasant and comfortable writer.

The new, high quality box will serve well for protection, transport, and display.

The Parker Victory Mk. lV is, arguably, the best of the models bearing the name.  The classic streamlined shape, tapered clip, slightly raised cap rings and deep Gold filling blend together to give a pleasing, uncluttered appearence.  At 15.5cm. when posted it is a long and elegant pen with a very solid, high quality feel.
