This is an excellent English Parker 51 in the brighter shade of burgundy with steel classic cap. This is fitted with a medium 14k gold nib which produces a writing line of approx 0.6mm
In terms of condition, this has been lightly used but is in excellent overall condition. For example, the imprint on the barrel ('Parker Made in England') is still clearly legible as shown in one of the photos
In terms of dating, this probably dates from the mid 1950s as the cap has the earlier cage clutch and only a simple 'Parker' imprint on the front below the clip
Condition B/1m - (Ref 12755)

We have fully serviced this pen which includes disassembling the pen, ultrasonically cleaning all the parts and fitting a new pliglass ink sac. We then reassemble the pen, check ink flow and the smoothness of the nib. We also check and adjust the tightness and positioning of the clip.
This is a Parker 51 with the aerometric filling system. The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges
