This stunning set of Parker Duofold's were created as retail samples to market the 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. They come boxed in a cherry wood hardcase, complete with stamped authenticity certificate.
They have never been inked, only dipped and cleaned, ready to shine amongst any collection, a stunning set with only a handful ever made, these are highly desirable writing instruments.
The fountain pen and ballpoint pen are both in near mint condition
There are micro-scratches present, the lightest signs the pens have been handled, but never inked.
The box shows wear where the foam lining is missing (see photos)
