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.
The samples are identical to the presidential in appearance and are made from gilt metal rather than solid gold. These are highly desirable writing instruments.
The fountain pen carries an 18k Oblique Medium Nib, the feed stamped '93', for medium oblique left hand. Please note we also have the matching ballpoint available as a 2 pen set here.
We currently also have the same model available with an 18k medium nib here, along with its corresponding ballpoint pen as a 2 pen set.
The Nitty Gritty
There are micro-scratches present, the lightest signs the pen has been handled, but never inked.
