Exchange - Nibs for Sale

Other sale areas: Ephemera, Merchandise, Parts, Pens, Pen displays, Tools 

Last update: 02-23-2012

The following spare parts are brand new nibs for the Parker 75 and Premier fountain pens, many of them hard-to-find exotic sizes.  The complete nibs with their matching section use the late-model French version with the circular grip and thin gold band.  This means it will fit the nib assembly that has the large collector fins on it  instead of the earlier version with the thin reed-like tube. 

Those nibs with matching sections will screw into the barrel of all versions of the Parker 75 FP barrel, and will also fit the Premier FP barrel.  Or in the case of the Parker Duofold nibs, they will fit the larger Centennial size FPs.

Keep in mind that, for oblique nibs, if it does not include the word "reverse", the nib is intended for people who write with their right hand.  Oblique nibs with the word "reverse" in its size description are generally intended for people who write with their left-handers.

NB: While new, these are sold 'loose', without any form of packaging from Parker Pen.

Here are the various nibs I have, organized into the following groups:

Complete French 14K nibs with sections

These nibs were originally destined for the US market, where the Parker 75 FPs could be fitted with 14K gold nibs.  In France, pens musts have a minimum of 18K gold content.

As years passed, Parker decided to stop using 14K gold nibs and simply standardize on 18K, most probably to reduce their parts inventory.  Today, the French 14K nibs are relative uncommon.

Nibs alone, no section - NEW

Just the nibs alone, made in the US or France.  These nibs have the thin tube and fit the older sections with the triangular grip, chrome or wide gold band.  Here's a chance for you to replace your existing nib and try an exotic size!

They are supplied 'loose', without any form of packaging except for the original glassine envelope from Parker Pen with exceptions are shown in the pictures below.

P14UF    F - Fine US 14K           $75
P14FF    F - Fine French 14K         $75
P18FF    F - Fine French 18K

Note:  Some are still packaged in the original plastic packaging, but many others are not.  There is no premium for packaged nibs, so they are given out on a first-come first-served basis. Usually I prefer to send the nib without the plastic packaging since I can protect it better for shipping by putting it into a PVC tube that is almost indestructible.
