Parker 51 Presidential in 9k gold wavy line design, London 1965

Regular price £1,495.00

Super example of the sought after Parker 51 Presidential in the standard UK factory 9k gold wavy line design.  Assayed in London for the Parker Pen Company (hallmark 'PPCo') in 1965 (date letter 'k'), this is in excellent condition and shows hardly any signs of having been used

The pen barrel carries the full set of assay hallmarks while the clip and the cap are both marked .375 for 9k gold. The clip tassie screw is also in gold

English factory production of the 51 Presidential consisted of this wavy line design in 9k gold plus the fine barley design in 18k gold.  In addition, the US Parker factory produced a 14k smooth/plain Presidential.  Unlike most other countries, the UK has favoured producing gold pens and other items of jewellery in 9k gold as it is harder wearing and more resilient than the softer 14k and 18k gold grades

This is in excellent condition with no dings and a clear, unengraved barrel cartouche.  The pen is currently fitted with a super smooth fine grade 14k gold nib, but we can change this to extra fine, medium, broad on request.  We also have a limited selection of italic and oblique grades.  This pen fills from an ink bottle and does not take cartridges

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 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
