Duofold branding is the gift that keeps on giving for Parker. Depending on how you count it, Parker Duofolds have spanned five model types in the past century. This Parker Duofold was an English model from after World War II. Interestingly enough, it uses a button-filler system like those on the Parker VS. To American eyes, it looks like a black Vacumatic without the viewer. It has light wear, except for where you can see wear rings around the threads and over the tail, where the cap got posted. The 14k gold nib writes a fine line. 13.1cm capped.
