The Old Pen Shop Deluxe Box. Designed by Kenneth Parker & Dom Doman in 1963 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Parker Pen Co. This was closely followed by the Insignia Cicele, a gold filled version, not to be confused with the Gold plated Sterling Silver Cicele, called the Vermeil Cicele. The early versions had metal threaded sections, but by 1965 this was dispensed with. The Parker 75 was the new flagship of the Parker range with a large 14k or 18k gold nib, specially designed for easy maintenance and easily removed for cleaning. The Section came in three models. Model 1 – triangular section with finger grips on two of the three facets and with a stainless steel incrementally marked section ring. On the early versions there was a centralising “0” on the section ring. Model 2 – triangular section with finger grips on two of the three facets and very similar but very thin smooth section ring, sometimes gold plated. Model 3 – A round section, with smaller finger grips and a thin lined gold section ring. The nib and built in feed came in two varieties. Mark I fitted Models 1 & 2 Sections and the Mark II fitted the Model 3 Sections. The other major distinguishing factor of the Parker 75 was the finial ends commonly known as “Tassies”. These came in three varieties. The Flat or Smooth Tassy. This is a listing from “The Old Pen Shop”.
