This is a Parker 51 Classic with steel cap in black and is fitted with a medium 14k gold nib which produces a writing line of around 0.6mm
It's showing no signs of having been used. The cap retains its original factory frosting with only light storage marks visible with a magnifying glass
In terms of dating, the cap has the halo imprint, the four prong finger clutch and the clearly visible smooth lip to the edge of the cap, so we date this to around 1962-64
This is an aerometric Parker 51. The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges
Condition A2/1m - (Ref 12701)

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 pen comes with our normal 12 month warranty. We keep a detailed record of each customer's purchases so if you need to call us, we will have all the information here to answer any query
