A Brief History... (From Wikipedia)                                                                                                                                                      

In 1958, the company added an arrow to replace the ballclip design. The arrow has remained on all production Jotters since then. Occasionally a jotter slipped through with a clip that had no embossed arrows. These are now collector's items. Recent production (English manufacture) have clips in the shape of an arrow, but no feathers

Today's Jotters are similar to the popular, "ruggedized" version that first came out in 1954. Over 700 million Jotters have been produced since 1954 and production continues at Parker's plant in Newhaven, England after being transferred there from Janesville, Wisconsin in 1999.
