Parker 51 Classic in black, Steel cap - Medium nib

Regular price £265.00

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

Condition wise, this is an example and shows hardly any signs of having been used.  The barrel still has some of the original chalk marks and very crisp imprints (see photo). The cap has its original factory frosting but also light storage scruffs as if it was just put away in a desk drawer for years with other pens

In terms of dating, this is from the mid 1950s as it has the simple 'Parker cap imprint, the earlier cap clutch design and the 'Parker Made in England' barrel imprint 

This is an aerometric Parker 51.  The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges

Condition A2/1m - (Ref 12868)

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
