Parker 75 Titanium, 1972 completely smooth without any pattern . made in U.S.A.
Nib: XF Titanium
Excellent pre-owned condition. Light wear only, and no dents or dings. * slightly marked on the barrel where you post the cap
The cap end has a dimpled tassie like other 75s, but the barrel end has a red plastic jewel reminiscent of the Parker T1.
There is quite a bit of controversy about this model. While a soft-tip Parker 75 was commercially sold, as seen in Parker advertisement like the one found in the December 1972 issue of National Geographic, there is some debate whether or not this fountain pen was sold. Some people say that this FP is really a home-brew model that was concocted by using the soft-tip cap and barrel and replacing it with the FP section. Others say that it does exist as an officially-released FP model.
