Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $125.00
Dove grey and a 16k gold filled cap make for a handsome combination on our fully restored Parker 51. Our vintage pen is dated from 1948. We put in a fresh diaphragm and put the inkfeed in a sonic cleaner. Unfortunately there are little cosmetic flaws. Its blind cap doesn't line-up quite perfectly, the nib hood has some really deep scratches (no cracks) and there's a curious ripple in the cap's blank initial section. You'll find its nib writes a nice, Japanese extra-fine line with a little feedback. 13.6cm capped.
