This is a Parker 51 Classic with steel cap in black and is fitted with a fine 14k gold nib which produces a writing line of around 0.4mm
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, this has the shorter clip, barrel imprint and earlier cage clutch so is likely to date from the mid 1950s
This is an aerometric Parker 51. The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges

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
