Most likely this was due to the pre-war constraints on strategic materials.It should be noted that aluminum jewels can look very different depending on wear and age.All pens of this period are double jewels, meaning that they have a decorative "jewel" at the top of the cap and at the end of the barrel.The imprint on the majority of these pens is at the end of the barrel, near the decorative "jewel", all in one line.Some collectors will assume that a "first year" pen without the aluminum jewels is not correct. One does find with regularity "first year" pens with plastic jewels.It is also rather common to find "first year" pens with just a barrel aluminum jewel and a plastic cap jewel.Another explanation may be that they were never dated or that the datecode wore off (on most instances the datecode is lightly imprinted to begin with).It should be noted that some examples have been found with the imprint up by the clutch ring, with a datecode of "1".

The year was started with three dots and as the year progressed, a dot was ground-off the die, as follows; Some of the early caps carried over into the later production, but all now had the metal content down by the cap band.In addition, I have been able to inspect a demonstrator with the "1" imprint by the clutch ring and a rounded blindcap.In addition, in most, but not in all cases, the "first year" pens will have jewels made of aluminum.I have only seen 2 such pens, the second one dated 1944 and on a cordovan barrel, which has the tell-tale Parker-font factory engraved name on the barrel.Probably an experiment by Parker, most likely given to employees to test.
