The Story 
The Parker 75 was named after Parker's 75th Anniversary Year (1963) and released in 1964 as a high end fountain pen that was a more modern alternative to the Parker 61 with some little innovations that would set it apart. The shell section was shaped and textured where a users fingers would grip the pen whilst the nib was a friction fit that could be turned around easily.

The pen was originally released in the sterling silver Cicelé (or Ciselle) pattern which consisted of a cross hatch grid of tiny squares engraved into the pen, supposedly inspired by the pattern on a cigarette case purchased from a London Jeweler, and set off with gold plated end pieces and a gold arrow. In early 1981 production ceased in the US but carried on in France until the Parker 75 was finally discontinued in 1994

This version is the stunning Parker 75 Gold Insignia Fountain Pen. Produced in the 1980s as part of the Place Vendôme collection, made in France. The gold plating is hallmarked on the cap, a timeless beautiful design. The pen has been fully serviced and comes ready to write 

Imperfections
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings

There is some very minor surface wear on the barrel, hardly distinguishable to the naked eye - but worth mentioning
