Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 202

Back we go to vintage with this classic Parker fountain pen model belonging to Christopher...

Christopher: "This is a Parker Emerald Green Streamlined Duofold Jr. that I picked up about two months ago and, surprisingly, had a full Lucky Curve uncut feed. Admittedly when I got it, I was not familiar about how to reset a full uncut Lucky Curve feed with the nib. But it wasn’t that hard once you have both items cleaned and ready to reinsert. The feed gets loaded in to the section from the back and the nib on top of it from the front. I have an original Parker fitting block which was a birthday gift from Chris and Mark. So with that tool I can reset the nib to original Parker specs. But once the pen was restored, serviced and inked - Wow what an incredible writer. The nib has so much welcome flex it is just a joy to write with. Can you beat a vintage Parker?" 

Many thanks to Christopher for the photo and write up about this lovely vintage fountain pen!
