For sale very rare Parker Duofold Presidential Esparto 18k Solid Gold International size - specimen set - with an 18k -750 gold nib highlighter with platinium.
This is the official Parker Salesman's specimen set issued as a replica of the 18ct Solid Gold Presidential set (part of the Duofold Gold Collection) and was used by the Parker sales staff for promotion and display purposes. Rather than solid gold, these pens were heavy gold plate over brass, but had the same weight as the real Presidentials. The specimen fountain pen was made in the International size only.
When Parker demonstrated the Duofold Presidential to customers they did not use the real 18 carat solid gold version as it was simply too valuable (price at the time of EUR15 thousand). Instead, they commissioned a limited series of gold-plated pens that look exactly like the real thing. Therefore, this set is gold-plated, not solid gold and does not have a hallmark.
The set comes housed in its original American Maple wooden box and outer card case.
