    Try again, as there is no written or visual information on what precisely you bought.

    Yep, now the images show. A Parker rollerball, for which I don't know the value, but ballpoint, rollerball, and pencils are almost always worth/priced less than fountain pens. Perhaps a non-fp person will have more information. The case also implies it was originally a set of two or three items, commonly an fp, ballpoint, and pencil. It looks like a fairly recent model, likely in the last 20 years or so?

    I think this is the Parker Arrow from the 1980s, as Jon says the fountain pen is worth more than anything else but it is not a sought after model, $50 tops, I don't know roller ball prices, perhaps $25.

    It is an english Platignum, looks a bit of a mess tbh especially the cap. This pen is much earlier than the Parker but, sorry, I am not sure that it is worth any money at all.

    If I were looking to buy this Parker Arrow rollerball I would not pay more than £7 delivered.

    It is very average ( well used ) as is the case

    It is possible to buy an NOS ( A perfect one for about £15-£20 )

    As for the Platignum mentioned, possibly two bobÖÖÖ.as in nothing

    What did paid for the pair of them ?

    Oh, some images of best Parker Arrow collection there is.
    Not mine, another collector friend I know very well.

    Then you bought wisely.

    The P25 rollerballs are worth alot more.

    Depending on the model and condition, alot more.

    Middle aged men are keen buyers of the Parker 25 who look to buy again the Parker 25s that saw them through at school/uni.

    The standard 25 has blue trim, if yours are green or red for example then they are worth a little more.

    Here is a bit more on the Parker 25. Tony Fischier's Parkerpens.Net is my first stop when I want to learn about any model Parker. Incidentally, Tony says that a P-25 is his everyday pen.

    There was a pecking order at school set by your pen. Platignum was right at the bottom of the list. It was the least desirable pen to have.

    Well it was probably a marginal improvement on the school supplied dip pens.

    :-) You remember those too. Yes they were. At least they owned a pen.

    The only worse pen was an Italian clone of the 51, often marked VV on the clip. the pen was a piston filler but I needed a pair of pliers to fill my pen, not ideal when you are making hurried notes in History.
