The Parker Victory has a history ranging from the MK I that started production in 1941 to the MK V that ended in the 1960’s. The full story can be read on this page.
The MK V featured Parker’s new “aerometric” filling system, developed for the 51 and was essentially the same pen as the “Student” model. This Victory was made in Denmark by the Chr. Olsen company, the same company that made Penol pencils and pens. This can be seen in the M.I.D. indication in the imprint on the barrel, seen below.
As can probably also be seen in the photos, this pen was a burgundy model, but has faded considerably over the years. The original owner was given the pen by her employer in the 1950’s, and she subsequently purchased the matching Parker pencil (which was also made in Denmark).
