This is a Parker 51 Custom with a rolled gold cap in grey, and is fitted with a broad 14k gold nib which gives a writing line width of around 0.8mm
Condition wise, the pen has been lightly used but is an excellent example all round. The gold cap is in good condition with with light superficial markings from use, and both the lucite front shell and barrel have been carefully polished
Date wise, this is likely to date from around 1962 as the cap features the later four prong finger clutch and still has the smooth lip to the cap edge
This is an aerometric Parker 51. The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges
Condition B/1b - (Ref 12699)
