Vintage Pens: 3887: Parker: 51 Demi Set
Parker 51 Demi models were only made for a short while, and we are lucky enough to present one that was barely used if ever. The pencil looks spotless, and the fountain pen, though restored with a new diaphragm, has only some wear on the hood where the cap snugs and a few light scratches in the almost otherwise flawless lustraloy cap. The pencil is loaded with spare leads and a hardened eraser. You advance the lead smoothly with a twist of the tail. The vintage pen's 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. There is a first quarter 1948 date code clearly imprinted on the barrel. The vast majority of the flaws are with the original Parker 51 box. There's staining on the inside and heavy wear on the outside, which only proves the box did its job protecting the instruments inside it.

Vintage Pens: 3100: Parker: 51
Hip, hip, hooray! The class of 1942 celebrated in style with this first-year 1941 Parker 51! Well, partly first year 51. Marketing material for the grand release of the Parker 51 in 1941 said that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time, which is why it was called the 51. Only first-year pens were given the aluminum tail jewel in the blind cap. Although the imprint seems to have worn off, the "Class of '42" engraving seems to be a nice verification of age. We are a little perplexed that the pen looks more teal blue than cedar blue, as would be appropriate. The sterling silver cap, which is in great condition, is a later model replacement cap. It still has a blue-diamond clip, but the jewel is plastic grey pearl--not aluminum. This vintage pen's diaphragm has been replaced, and it is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Light wear can be found in all the usual places. No cracks or dents. 13.8cm capped.
