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.
This model comes in very good condition, serviced and ready to write with its original aerometric (squeeze to fill) ink converter
