Parker 17

Parker 17 in Blue.

The Parker '17' was added to the immensely successful Duofold range in 1962. It originally had an exposed nib but was changed to a hooded version, this pen, in 1964.  It was made in two versions, the 'standard' and the 'Super'.  The more expensive 'Super 17' had an unusually wide, gold filled cap band and a Gold filled ring at the end of the barrel. 

This pen is a fine example of a Parker '17' standard', it was made in England around the early sixties.  In excellent condition, it is finished in Blue with a Gold filled clip.

At 13.5cm. capped and 14.6cm. posted it is a good sized pen with a very good balance.  The pen has been fully serviced and tested, it fills well and the 14Ct. Gold nib is a really good, comfortable, writer.

The Parker '17' is not a rare pen by any means but one in this condition comes along very infrequently.  The '17' is a very underrated pen which has stood the test of time.  It would make an unusual and reliable every day writer.
