    Parker 45 GT (Made in USA Body/Cap) 14K French-Made (and hallmarked) "R" Relief nib Mid-to-Late 1960s (Though Nib itself could be later), not one I own but rather one a friend sent me to clean up and check out before forwarding it off to him. They're decent workhorses can sometimes find them for 20 or less.

    Ok, I thought I was going to see a different sort of "Pens", but those also look quite nice, well done!

    :p Guessing you thought something like this :

    olympus_pen_ft_by_kb244-d4ng700.jpg

    Or my E-P3 (which I haven't used in a year since I got the E-M5).

    On that note... I miss my Pen-FT.
