This is a Parker 51 Classic with steel cap in burgundy and is fitted with a medium 14k gold nib which produces a writing line of around 0.6mm
Condition wise, this is a superb example and shows no siogns of having been used. The cap retains its original factory frosting while the barrel still has some of the original chalk marks
In terms of dating, the barrel imprint shows that this was manufactured in 1955 which is confirmed by the other design features such as the cap imprint being a simple 'Parker' and the earlier cap clutch design
This is an aerometric Parker 51. The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges
Condition A2/1m - (Ref 12702)
