At long last, a medium-nibbed Parker 51! And its blue! Judging by the 8 in the date code this is a first year aerometric filling Parker 51! Unscrew the barrel to reveal an aerometric (squeeze) filler. It maintains its original pli-glass (silicone) ink sac that works perfectly well. Unfortunately, a lot of chrome is coming off its aerometric "cage." The rest of the pen is pretty good. Just light wear from use. Its 14k gold nib writes a rare smooth medium line. 13.6cm capped.
