Dawn of Colour Mug Shots: Maybe I have a '57 Cedar Blue first-year, smooth sterling silver cap with imprint at top, metal jewels appear to be silver rather than aluminum; good blind cap imprint with 2nd quarter date code, aluminum Speedline filler with diamond at end of plunger. There were various cap choices available, although not as varied as the earlier Blue Diamond style caps, detailed in the "Caps" page of this website. Parker used a date system of one digit, surrounded by a series of dots to signify the quarter the pen was made in. The imprint on the majority of these pens is at the end of the barrel, near the decorative "jewel", all in one line.

The second MKII-B model was made from and on, had a shorter clip and the filling instruction read: Still functional, or functional with light attention. This version, redesigned to update its look, bears a noticeable resemblance to the Parker Premier MK I.

      Signs of everyday usage on nib or body. The clutch ring became a thin decorative piece with no use, as the cap was fitted with a finger clutch that grabbed onto the hood.

      Severe cracks or essential parts missing. Possibly anticipating the official start of date coding in France and the UK, this could have led to the presumption that the dating actually began in , but proof of this has still to be found.
