This is a Parker 51 Custom with a rolled gold cap in the lighter shade of burgundy, and is fitted with a medium 14k gold nib which gives a writing line width of around 0.6mm
Condition wise, the pen has been lightly used but is an excellent example all round. The gold cap is in good condition with no wear to the plating or dings to the metal and both the lucite front shell and barrel have been carefully polished
Date wise, the barrel imprint indicates that the pen was manufactured in 1952 which fits with the pen's key design features and other imprints
This is an aerometric Parker 51. The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges
Condition B/1m - (Ref 12698)
