1997, Sydney, Australia, only 500 pieces worldwide

Parker Duofold Limited Edition fountain pen, no. 103/500

The Parker Duofold 2000 Limited Edition was made to celebrate the XXVII Olympics held in Sydney, Australia,
Based on a standard Duofold Centennial, there are a few small changes to adapt the pen to the event, similarly to other small-scale editions by Parker.
Overall design, clip, trim rings on body and cap, ribbon and fill system are all those of a Centennial.
The difference lays in the tassel, which differs from the usual design with a gold plated button with the official logo of the sport event, the text ‘SYDNEY 2000’ and the five Olympic rings.
The changes can be better appreciated on the barrel, featuring a black resin engraved with gold letters ‘SYDNEY 2000’, the official logo of the competition and the five Olympic rings as well as two more rings within each other, where the inside is divided by a diagonal line with the item number on one side and the edition number on the other.
Commercialised in 1997 with edition of only 500 pieces.

Parker Duofold Limited Edition Fountain Pen no. 103/500
On the occasion of the celebration of the XXVII Olympic Games held in the city of Sydney, in Australia, the Limited Edition Parker Duofold Sydney 2000 was produced.
On a Duofold centennial fountain pen as standard, which remains as it is, there are some slight changes to adapt it to the event, as it happens with other editions of small run of the Parker house.
The general design, the clip, body rings and cap, jib and loading system, are those of a Centennial; it differs in the crown of the cap, which changes its usual design with a gold-plated button that reflects the official anagram of the sporting event, the registration ‘SYDNEY 2000’ and the five Olympic rings.
Changes for this celebratory event can be better appreciated on the barrel, since we can see on the black resin, engraved in golden colour ‘SYDNEY 2000’, the official anagram of the meeting and below that the five Olympic rings, and two rings, one inside the other, where the interior is divided in two by a diagonal line, with the number in one part and the edition number in the other.
It went on sale in the year 1997, with an edition of only 500 pieces.
