Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds of the 1920s are so iconic and rare that modern Parker brought back the color for a limited run of only 10,000 pens. Our preowned pen is a never-used Parker Duofold Centennial number 8,850 in Mandarin yellow. This is the larger sized pen that comes complete with its original boxes and papers. It also is loaded with a Parker converter that lets you draw ink from a bottle. With the papers are the original, though dried out, Parker ink cartridges. Aside from the color and smooth-flowing 18k gold nib with a medium point are Parker's attention to details. The barrel imprint remains true to the original with some nuanced changes, such as the limited edition number in the "Lucky Curve" banner. We also like the arrow imprint and early Parker logo on the nib. Click the headline for the close-up.
