This is an English Parker 51 Mk1 Custom in black with a rolled gold cap. It's fitted with a medium 14k gold nib which produces a writing line of around 0.6mm
Apart from some miniscule marks from storage over the last sixty years, it's showing no signs of having been used. The Parker factory imprint around the end of the barrel is still crisp as can be seen in the photos. The medium nib is smooth with good ink flow
In terms of dating, the cap has the Parker and RG (Rolled Gold) imprints and the earlier cage clutch. So with the barrel imprint, this dates to the mid/late 1950s.
Condition A2/1m - (Ref 12790)
