Vintage Pens: Parker Premier 75
Vintage Pens: 1900 Parker Premier 75
Following the traditional Parker 75 was the Parker Premier 75. This is a slightly bigger and more squarely round pen with gold plate and the same style 75 nib. Ours is actually an 18k gold nib made in France. It writes a smooth medium line. Plus, if you aren't familiar with the Parker 75, you can actually gently turn the nib to better adjust how it conforms to your grip. The little hash marks on the section collar can help serve as indicators. There is virtually no wear on the pen, and its original, rubber-sacked squeeze-bar convert seems to be in good working order. It comes with its box and tag. The box is a little worse for wear with lots of what looks like hot-glue gun goo on its outside. The pen might be new old stock, and it might be from the 1980s or later. We really aren't as familiar with this model. 13.5cm capped.
