Parker’s plant in Newhaven, England, got back to work almost immediately after the end of WWII, and opened with their first new product, the 1946-47 Duofold NS (New Series). Its shape was reminiscent of a Vacumatic, 13.3cm long, but this was a button filler, in solid colors. This Duofold, in burgundy, has been used, has a few minor nicks, but overall is very shiny and clean. The clip, cap ring, and tassie are in gold, and are unmarked. The nib is a fine/medium with a touch of flex; there is a bit of sound feedback from the nib but it writes well. This is a very nice, durable user pen.
