This is an English Parker 51 Mk1 Custom in teal blue with a rolled gold cap. It's fitted with a fine 14k gold nib which produces a writing line of around 0.4mm
This is showing no signs of having been used, and everything about the pen is very crisp. The fine nib is smooth with good ink flow
In terms of dating, the cap has the simple 'Parker' and 'RG' (rolled gold) imprints and the earlier cage clutch inside the cap. With the slightly longer earlier clip and barrel imprints, this dates to the early/mid 1950s
Condition A2/1f - (Ref 12789)

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 is a Parker 51 with the aerometric filling system. The pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges
