    Yes, in a Parker shape chart the 399 is listed under " Dublin". Nothing mentioned about size etc

    ''....The Parker date code always followed the MADE IN LONDON over ENGLAND stamping. The first year's pipes (1923) had no date code; from 1924 on it ran consecutively from 1 to 19....''


    now I'm really confused................it has figure 2 in a circle next to MADE IN LONDON over ENGLAND stamping.

    size 2 - thanks



    the stem stamp actually says ''Parker Matt Bruyere''

    The number two in a circle is, I believe, is Dunhill's group size, a size two in this case.
