This was the first pen I ever bought, about 30 yrs ago. I've written many thousands of pages with it, and it has served me every day in all that time. Despite the fact I now have a large collection of pens, this one remains my favourite. It writes smoothly, is well balanced and quite heavy (brass body with a lacquered finish)
The pen could tell some stories.. It has been used by Queen Elizabeth II, Margaret Thatcher and by Paul McCartney to sign visitor books, and has been used in some of the most interesting offices in the western world..
Unfortunately I forget what the model is (obviously a Parker and French made) And despite searching I've never seen another one on the net, so I suspect it is probably quite rare..
I realise this might be boring to some simply because it is modern, but I promise to post some of my vintage pens too ;)
