      Hey Jason , Pen has eversharp 14 carat tip and is engraved with the name Zenestra . I dont know if the tip is solid gold or just the little ball that actually touches the paper. Yes it has a small dent or two as it is very soft metal . Any thoughts ? Jack

      I checked ebay a few weeks ago and only found one that was close to this pen , It was unused with no name engraved and had a loup at the top for a chain rather than a clip for a pocket . In uncirculated condition they wanted 300 somthing english pounds . I think they are dreaming . Jack

      Has all the makings of a lucky curve, button filler (early duomatic). The restoration is simple and cheap. I'd check with or Ron Zorn @ main street pens. They would give you a reasonable idea of it's value. AR8 was correct about the nib, but a lucky curve nib is easy to aquire. If you can take it apart, you could tell if it still has the lucky curve feed....that would increase it's value. All in all, it's a nice Parker, and they are among the most collectible pens. I'm sure you could hit a couple of bills on ebay and if it catches fire, you could be in the 3-5 hun range.
