Parker Lucky Curve Eyedropper #20 – Wet Noodle

Here is a very old and difficult to obtain Parker Lucky Curve eyedropper (latest patent date is April 4, 1899).  The pen is in overall good condition. The black hard rubber is and always was smooth with no chasing. The hard rubber has faded some to a dark grayish brown. The imprints are still quite good. The pen still has the original Lucky Curve feed. The very early 14kt. Parker Lucky Curve nib is an almost paintbrush like wet noodle that has great responsiveness and control. The right tine of this nib, however, was bent down at one point and still has a bit of wrinkle. I have aligned the tines pretty close, but I could not completely remove the wrinkle. The result is that with some inks it does railroad a bit, but with wetter more lubricating inks (Sailor Souten is what is in the pics) there is no problem. The nib is a quite wet XF and writes smoothly. (See Price Here)
