Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Parker 51 pens were named 51s because they were 10 years ahead of their time when released in 1941! This is an actual 1950s Parker 51 that features an original and still working aerometric filler. The burgundy barrel and hood are handsome, but the hood is marred by several deep scratches which are easily spotted in the photo. The steel "lustraloy" cap has lots of light scratches but no dents or other serious flaws. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth medium line. 13.9cm capped.
