It may be “mint” but it’s not original. Those case colors were the result of the cyannide method of color case-hardening, a process never used by Parker Brothers. There may have been a period during which Remington Arms may have used the cyannide method but I believe it would have been after WW II and they stopped the production of Parkers when WW II broke out. So, any way you look at it they are not original. What is the serial number of your Parker please?
