Parker 51 fountain pens remain popular 80 years after their introduction. Due to a small mark on the barrel, we aren't 100% sure if this is a 1945 or '46 model. It is in good working order. We got it from a long-time vintage pen collector who gave it to us in good working order. The pen shows some light wear on the cap and barrel. You can see the marks in the lustraloy cap pretty easily in the photo. You will write a fine to medium with its 14k gold nib. We don't know how else to describe it, but there's a bit of feedback as you write. We smoothed it out, but there is still a sensation as you write. Sorry that sounds vague, but it is a vague feeling. 13.8cm capped.
