This pen was acquired from a former Parker employee in the USA. It is believed to be one of the prototypes presented by Parker to the White House in 1993 alongside the matching Rollerball (see the related listing for Catalogue #274). The Rollerball was chosen to be used for the historic Treaty signing. The Fountain pen does not appear to have been ordered, but is nevertheless an intriguing rarity.
See the further details and photograph in the listing for the Rollerball – and the fascinating further details on page 309 of David Shepherd and Dan Zazove’s wonderful Duofold book.
