Parker 51 Custom RS in black, Rolled Silver Cap - Fine nib

Regular price £325.00

This is an English Parker 51 Custom in black with the uncommon rolled silver cap with gold clip and is fitted with a fine 14k gold nib which produces a writing line of around 0.4mm

Condition wise, this is a superb example and shows no signs of having been used with very crisp imprints on the barrel.  As is usual with the rolled silver caps, this shows the very superficial surface marks in the lacquer finish Parker applied to prevent the silver from tarnishing - see the two large photos showing the front and back of the cap.  The photo of the back of the cap also shows the 'R Silver' imprint

In terms of dating, this was probably manufactured 1958 which is confirmed by the other design features such as the cap imprint being a simple 'Parker' and the earlier cap clutch design

This comes with the contemporary Parker 51 box and the instructions as shown in the photos

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

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
