What Color English Parker is this?

15 July 2014 - 12:44 PM

Hope you can help me!

What 'official' color would this English Parker 17 be?

I've searched several sites and cannot find an exact match. I got it in a lot of five mixed user-grade pens.

The color apears deep red or burgundy (lighter than on a modern Hero 616).

Cap is silvertone with narrow vertical grooves, the arrow is goldtone, clutch ring appears to be black plastic and the cap jewel matches the body color.

Sorry for the awful cell phone picture, and thanks for your help!


I don't know whether the duotone cap/arrow is a 17 feature....Frankenpen? Or what?

Parkers. What have I gotten myself into?


The black one is probably a Super 21 and the section is messed up...like someone decided to heat-shrink it. But it still writes when the nib is water-dipped...a dark blue or blue-black color.

The striped one has, well, no nib. And chips on the threads. But they're mine, all mine.

Hope I didn't pay too much. -_-;

Can anyone tell me more?
