    Default Parker 51 With "Bubbly" Texture on Hood

    I have a Parker 51 desk pen that I obtained a number of years. It arrived with some sort of bumpy texture on the hood. It also seems to be on the inside of the hood but not to the same extent as the exterior. This is the best picture I could get for now. It COULD be some sort of clear spray on coating that dried too fast to smooth out but not sure how to find out. This is on a 51 desk pen with chalk marks still intact on the barrel.

    Any ideas what this is?

    Its on the inside, too? It honestly looks like voracious teeth marks.

    I thought the same may be the case but when I looked under a loupe it is definitely raised bumps/bubbles, not dings like teeth marks would be. The lighting is horrible as is the picture.

    Ok, so sitting here looking at this hood again I thought if it is some sort of spray they added for shine or some sort of protectant, alcohol might take it off. So, I grabbed some rubbing alcohol and a paper tower and, lo and behold, it all came off. Whatever whoever did this used it had a slightly black tinge. But, the hood is as it should be now.
