The Parker 45 TX was made between 1979 and ended production in 1983 giving it a fairly short lifespan. As a result not that many were produced making this pen a bit of a rarity. All were made at Parkers Newhaven Factory in the UK.The defining characteristics of the 45 TX are the dark blue epoxy painted over brass body with gold trim and a flattened conical disk on the end of the barrel to finish it off. The Black Parker 45 TX. The Parker Factory in Argentina made a version of the 45 that used a similar epoxy coating in black and with a slightly raised conical end to the barrel instead of the gold button that is found on the UK made TX.
The clip is also different, utilising the same arrow as found on the Parker 61 and the shell grip is usually slightly textured. Original nibs will be stamped Parker Industria Argentina. Often referred to as a black TX although it was never given that designation by Parker and examples are quite rare.
Other black versions exist using the same epoxy finish as was found on the Parker 25B and usually without the gold button on the end of the barrel. These are thought to be experimental versions and one offs making them rare and desirable to collectors.The photo's are an integral part of the description.
