The Parker 65 was produced exclusively in the UK by Parker in the c1960's and early 1970s for a limited production run. It was a popular pen - the return to the open style nib and a step away from the hooded nibs of the 51 and 61 models was well received. The pen was somewhat eclipsed by the release of the Parker 75, but has remained a firm favourite as a reliable everyday pen.
The Parker 65 Cloud Series was introduced in 1975 with the Cirrus pen, it was followed a year later by the Cumulus and Stratus, all of which were inspired by cloud formations. The pens were very popular in the 1970s and sold at the high end of the market and have since become sought after and highly collectable pens.
This model comes with its original Parker sleeve, Parker hard-case, original cartridge and ink converter and instructions. It has hardly been used, perhaps previously inked, but in mint condition.
There are no imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings.
