This stunning Parker Duofold was created as a retail sample to market the solid 18kt gold Parker Presidential range in flagship stores in Britain.
The pens are samples of the Parker Presidential, which are made from solid 18kt gold and were dubbed as 'the world's most expensive pens', literally worth their weight in gold. The fountain pen was priced at $10,000 and the ballpoint at $5,000.
This particular example carries an 18k medium nib, and is in near mint condition, having never been inked, only displayed in store.
Please note we currently have the matching ballpoint pen available as a 2 pen set here. Or the same model in left oblique medium here.
The Nitty Gritty
