Parker 75 (Ciselé Sterling Silver)

In 1964, Parker launched the Parker 75 in an attempt to regain the important higher-priced gift-oriented market. Parker’s lower priced pens, while trying to compete with the increasingly popular ballpoint pen, did not have a large profit margin. The 75 was produced for over 30 years in differing forms, but the early models, like this one, featured bodies made from Sterling Silver in a Ciselé pattern. Another distinctive feature of this pen is that the section is designed with three faces to match the fingers and thumb; the nib can then be rotated to ensure the right angle to the paper.
