The set overall is in good condition though it does have some rubbing to the cap from the cap being posted and some wear about the cap band, the trim does show some brassing with it showing a little more around the bottom edge of the cap band. The cap bands on both pieces are engraved J.In the cartouche on each band. The colour on both pieces is quite nice and they have solid black jewels. The nib on the pen is what is special, a two tone extra fine flexible Parker Vacumatic 14 k nib that allows for great line variation, especially with its long tines.
Both pieces are in proper working order and they would make a great set for daily use! Please check out my other Parker & Waterman lightly used or NOS parts.All fountain pens are in working order unless otherwise noted.
