Select the Proper Point.

Nothing is more personal than a fountain pen. Nothing gives the user greater satisfaction than a properly selected point in a thoroughly reliable pen. On the other hand, nothing gives more distress and annoyance than a point not fitted to the user’s hand, or a pen which does not work due either to carelessness or misuse.

There are six Parker points you can choose from-Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Stub an Oblique.

For close figure work, or fine memoranda, for general correspondence, for the individual who holds his pen edgewise, 0r for the one who slants his pen noticeably to the right or left, PARKER makes the proper point.

Leak Proof Parker’s Duo Sleeve Safety Cap hermetically seals the pen point. No ink can get out. No air can get in. Turn the outer cap until it creaks when closing pen.

Button Filler. No lever or hole through side of pen barrel to disfigure it. No air gets to rubber sac to rot it. No ink can leak out even if sac breaks. To fill correctly -remove top, press button once only, release ·button and count ten before withdrawing pen from ink.

28% Lighter Than Rubber. Parker Permanite material makes a pen that your hand never tires of holding.
