First came the Button Fillers of the 1920s and 1930s, mostly built in the USA with a few built in Canada. Then came the Duofold NS (New Style) another Button Filler but this time built in the UK between 1946 and 1948. Then came the last of the Button Fillers with the Duofold AF (Aluminium Filler) also built in the UK (1948-52) as most were after WWII. A sister pen was produced at a similar time using many of the same components, designated as the Victory (Mk IV). The Barrel was the same and the AF Filling button was the same. It however tended to use the standard “N” Newhaven nib as opposed to the Duofold “N” nib. Then came a range of Aerometric Fillers. These started with the deminutive Slimfold with No. 5 nib, with a slightly larger brother in the Junior with No. 10 nib, then the Standard/Demi with No. 10/15/20 or 25 nibs. Followed by the Senior with No. 35 nib and then the Flagship of the range, The Maxima with No. A variant in the range was the Parker 17 and Super 17. These normally used hooded nibs and tubular No. Not very flexible, but made of 14ct gold. However there were a few early models with open nibs (commonly called “Beaky” nibs) and these were called Duofold 17s and Duofold Super 17s. This is a listing from “The Old Pen Shop”.
