Parker Lucky Curve Eyedropper #18 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is an old Parker Lucky Curve Eyedropper size #18 in smooth black hard rubber (with no original chasing). The last patent date is June 6, ’05. It’s easily over a hundred years old. The pen has faded some to a dark grayish brown color. The imprints on this pen are still ver crisp. Even the “18” on the back of the barrel looks pretty good. The pen has no trim. The original Parker Lucky Curve nib is a very smooth XF. The tipping is a little low, but it still has plenty to last a good long while. Unlike most eyedroppers, this nib is not excessively wet but has a good, smooth, even flow. The pen also has very good flex and goes all the way up to 2.omm with pretty good responsiveness.
