The Parker Premier was introduced in September 1983 as the 61, 65, 85, and 105 were discontinued. Made in Meru, France, the Premier has some obvious similarities to the 75 but it is more lavishly appointed and sits at the very top of the range. Longer and wider than the 75, the Premier also has an 1`8Ct. Gold nib, a faceted cap band and end caps fitted with black onyx jewels at the barrel ends.
This set has a Silver plated'Grain d'Orge (barley grain) finish with 18Ct. The set, comprising fountain and ballpoint pens, is in fabulous condition, it may well be unused. The original packing is intact including outer box, marked with content details, and a plush presentation case containing the pens, unused cartridges, ink converter, a suede pen pouch, nib adjuster, and instruction manual.There is some staining to the outside of the box but the cardboard sleeve is in good order. Each pen carries a plastic tag marked'Parker Silver plated', in English on one side and French on the other.
The manual carries a certiicate of quality with a signed nib and final inspection. It is very unusual to find a pen with such a complete provenance. It is a sensational pen set.As I usually sell vintage items I always make good use of photos and describe the pen fully disclosing any faults.
