Parker "striped" Duofold Senior.
2nd Gen, 1942-1948. Parker's Laidtone Celluloid.

CLICK FOR LARGER PIC

One of the my major collecting foci, the striped Duofold was one of three  1940s Parker series to offer the Blue Diamond warranty on at least some models. All offered in this lot are Seniors; Senior was the largest and most expensive  (with Ingenue) model offered. .It was offered in three colors. All in this cluster are second generation, featuring a single jewel and the cap-band better known from the Vacumatic  model, Major.  The nib features the classic chevron "V" pattern, save for some of the earliest 1942 2nd-gen nibs, which have  plain "Parker Pen" markings. Relatively scarce pens are found with a two-tone V-nib, offered during a limited period, probably mid 1943 perhaps to early 1944.  One can hunt dozens of variants of the 1940-1948 striped Duofold. You should see my collection. My last offering of these a couple years ago saw 8 of the 9 pens sell within a couple months.

Green/gold. 1945. Proper "V" nib. Excellent condition with superb plastic, "Parker" imprint, and trim.  Would have claims to Near Mint, but has no barrel transparency left, a "color" issue more than condition issue but still. Whatever ink had been left in it for 70 years darkened the interior. Pen though has very bright and vivid green/gold celluloid. Firm fine point with really nice smooth line.

Parker Duofold Senior. Celluloid. This group 1926-early 1930s
CLICK FOR LARGER PIC

Parker's top tier pen from the 1920s-early 1930s. Originally of hard rubber; later Celluloid. All these are Celluloid. This batch is offered in celebration of my college colors.  All are the largest size (Senior) save for the Junior at the far right. Streamline Seniors are a bit shorter than the earlier chunky flat-tops, but are a bit less common, particularly in orange (Parker's "red"),  The Big Red is iconic.

Smooth huge fine-point proper Duofold nib.  Would grade Excellent but gripping section has some marks where someone once made a bad attempt to open it (shallow friction marks at distal edge).

Vintage Parker Duofold Junior 1920s-1930s Celluloid
CLICK FOR LARGER PIC

Parker's top tier pen from the 1920s-early 1930s. "Junior" indicates size not tier/quality. The Duofold Junior is same diameter as the Parker Vacumatic Standard (lockdown filler), thus a bit narrower and of course shorter than Duofold Senior. They still are chunky standard-diameter pens, of same girth as Vacumatic Standard (lockdown pens). Excellent entry-to-series pens, at < 1/2 cost of similar Senior but with functional size. All of these are Celluloid.

COMMENTS:  Parker's big Duofold from the streamlined era (1929-1934). This color iirc was intro'd around 1932. Clean pen and nice writer with firm fine point on the serial-numbered big Duofold nib. Plastic is clean. Imprint has some central lightness. Cap-bands are without dings or brassing. Clip has brassing on the "usual" spot only on the clip ball, which you can see in the photo.

COMMENTS:  The classic Duofold is a highly collectable fountain pen series. I grab them when I can, as they tend to be popular items on this website.  This tray offers a nice range of colors and nibs. The Jade set and the final Lapis in this tray have killer color. All of course are restored and carry the Vacumania 1 year function warranty.  The yellow pen has a killer nib, a double-broad stub.

COMMENTS:  Parker's original Duofold ran 1921-1935, likely with late production pieces even after that. Originally of hard rubber, production switched to Celluloid, evolving later from the traditional "Flat-Top" style  to "Streamline" in 1929. Classic high-quality pen from top-tier maker Parker.

COMMENTS:  Modern Duofold, initially with "Flat Top" styling later with  streamlined contour, evoked the classic 1921-1935 original Duofold. Fountain pens use cartridge/converter. FP's can be had in larger Centennial and smaller International form. Both, though, are chunky pens. A large range of finishes exist.  This tray offers both early and late variants of modern Duofold.

COMMENTS:  This one is a 1940 black Duofold Junior, the larger of the two pens that mark the entry level to vac-fill Duofolds from this era (cheaper Duofolds can be found as button fillers, and more expensive vac-fill pens also were made, albeit not in black in the latter case). It is a "first year" pen from the "striped" Duofold series, though this is the only one (save for opaque black button-fill pens) that lacks conventional stripes.

Black vac-fill Duofolds were made 1940 through perhaps mid 1942, when Junior was phased out. That end point will need to be better defined by observation of more pens. Those made from 1941 and later have typical distinct longitudinal stripes of barrel clarity. But, the 1940 pens have "Shadow Wave" transparency as shown above, a pattern explicitly catalogued only for Vacumatic, not Duofold.

Most black Shadow Wave Duofolds are rough things as most Junior Duofolds have poor preservation of cap-band gold-filled metal (a mm of brassing on a big cap band equals "edge brassing", while a mm of brassing on thin double bands equals "total brassing"). As barrel clarity on most celluloid Parkers suffers severe ambering, most pens of this sort tend to have an unimpressive appearance. To find clean trim and good clarity on a black Duofold Junior (or smaller Sub-Deb) is a grand thing indeed.

This one is in the top five I've handled in ten years. Keep in mind it is not a "brown" Shadow Wave. Those stripes you see are not brown/black variegation, but mark a black pen with transparency showing up as golden color. The gold-filled trim is superb. Manufacturer's imprint is sharp. One superficial mark to plastic above imprint.  Responsive (verging on semi-flex) fine-medium point.

A strict color hierarchy does not exist for the stripers, but my experience is that the blue-gray is the least frequently encountered color amongst the three colors found in most models. This one has sharp imprint, clean trim, occasional mark on plastic  and a quite fine yet smooth point point.  I will need to have the ink-flow increased  a bit before shipping, based on "final" testing, when i prepped this website update.
