    Ah. You took the words out of my mouth. To remove ambiguity, mine is an Aerometric Duofold, 1953 or a bit later. And it does write well.

    In addition, an American Aero 51, also in black.

    Newly acquired Parker 15 Flighter with Fine nib. Love that it is small and compact -- makes for a great EDC in my book. Surprisingly, it's a smooth writer too. Currently inked with Noodler's X-feather Blue.

    I've inked and used this one: A timely find, I had put a snipe on this pen when it was on auction during the ten days of the late Queen Elizabeth's mourning period. I lucked out and received it this week from London. The pen was originally made in the Canadian Parker factory, and exhibits, among other things, the lovely flexible nibs that enterprise was known for. The only real flaw is that the affixing of the crown element on the cap has had an effect on the hard rubber, which I'll correct, but the inscription on the barrel is still very clear. I'll use this when his grandson is crowned in the coming months.

    Great pen now you have it in your hands. The finial area surrounding the crown seems to be quite damaged. Do you believe that someone was trying to remove the crown? I'm very surprised if that's the case they seem to have failed in that attempt as I thought Parker Duofold finials weren't fixed on that strongly.

    To be honest, I can't quite tell, but it *looks* as though the adhesive may have reacted over time with the hard rubber. The pitting is fairly even around the entire part, making it less likely it is physical damage from a removal attempt. I believe I have a donor cap top I would swap and just transfer the crown element. This is the kind of repair/alteration I'll think about for a good while before attempting anything.
