Parker also added a "De Luxe" version of the Over-size and Jr.model with a wide cap band of about 3/8 inches and extending to the cap lip.
The pen was offered with five nibs: extra fine, fine, medium, broad, and stub.
The largest Duofold was now called the "Oversize" or "Over-size" model.
The Jr., though smaller, feels like a larger pen in the hand, being 4 5/8 inches long capped and 5 3/4 posted, and having pretty substantial girth.
A Parker Duofold, especially a "Big Red," is one of the dozen or so pens that most collectors would place in a core fountain pen collection.
The Parker Duofold was introduced in 1921 in a very unusual orange red hard rubber called "Chinese Lacquer Red." The majority of hard rubber pens being made at the time were all black, so the Duofold stood out.
