Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $125.00
No vintage pen collection is complete without a Parker 51. We restored this 51 with a new diaphragm. We like the golden pocket clip on the striped chrome cap. It is a nice contrast and we were a little surprised by the lack of silver markings. The pen and cap show a little wear from use, but it still makes for a nice daily user. Made in the first quarter of 1946, it writes really well for 77 years old. The nib was made of 14k gold. You will write a smooth medium line and yet still feel the paper beneath you. The tail's blind cap maintains a perfectly flush feel with the barrel. 13.5cm capped.
