View Full Version : Help Identify this Unknown Parker

I got this Parker on sale at a Dutch Department Store (Bijenkorf) for less than 10 Euro. It looks similar to IM CT. But the price was too low and there are little differences. Anyone know this Pen. As it came with no paper work

I could not post photos on this site. I uploaded on my blog http://www.hunterdeuling.com/parker

Parker IM - http://www.amazon.com/Parker-Silver-Fountain-Pen-Chrome-Trims/dp/B009ESLB16

I am not seeing the little differences. They were going cheap a while back, along with the Frontier and Urban.

Looks like an early version of the IM Silver CT, the newer version has an somewhat less pronounced arrowclip and the Parker name is no longer engraved on the capring but rather printed in black just above the ring.

Thank you guys.

CrazyIvan, The photo you showed me is the the Pen I have. I have only seen the photo of the new version with Parker engraved in black on the Pen. And the $60 price tag as I got mine way below that price.

erpe, thank you for the response. You are correct. I appreciated the quick response.

I got the Parker IM, and I really like the feel and the nib is very smooth for me. But it came in a box with no paper, I think it was the last model, the one in the demo case. But the price, and I just loved the look of it. And it was my first real daily driver that was not a Lamy.
