Parker “D.Q.” Lucky Curve – Good Flex (SOLD)


Parker “D.Q.” Lucky Curve  – (On Ebay)

Here is a full-size Parker student version of the Jack Knife Safety Pen. These were produced in the mid-20s. The “D.Q.” stands for “Duofold Quality.” Parker renamed these a bit later to the “Black and Gold” pen. It is made of black hard rubber with a pin stripping. The BHR is very black on one side, but does have some fading (more to grey than brown) on the other side. The band appears to have be nickel and not gold-filled as the ring top is. The imprint is worn a bit but still readable. There is also a small crack running through the threads of the barrel. I couldn’t pick up in the pictures. The section actually threads into the barrel and someone probably overtightened it. It has no effect on the function of the pen, and is hardly noticeable. The nib is a replacement “Warrented 14K” nib, and it is a good one. It writes very smooth with some nice, fairly responsive flex.
