Overview (excerpt from Parkerpens.net)
The Parker "75" was designed by Kenneth Parker (son of the founder George Parker) or converter) from the Parker "45". He borrowed the grid pattern from his cigarette case, made by a London silversmith. To make the pen in solid gold would have been too expensive so Parker decided on sterling (a very pure) silver. During manufacturing the pens were made in smooth silver into which was later cut lines and a type of stain was added in the cracks to highlighten the rectangular plates. This made the grid-patterned silver pen only to grow more beautiful with time. The gold clip and trim together with the 14 carat gold nib wrapped up the design. When the new pen, called Sterling Cicelé hit the market in 1964 (the pen was finished in 1963, though, Parker's 75:th anniversary) it cost $25, which was extremely high for a pen aimed at the "broader" public. Again proving that if you have a quality product with an interesting design, people are willing to pay high prices for it.
