Imitation is the highest form of flattery. This fairly obvious recreation of a Parker 51 was made by Scripto, which was originally an Atlanta-based pen company. (Although it gave up on the pen industry, Scripto still exists as a lighter manufacturer.) We restored this lever-filler with a new ink sac. The hooded steel nib writes a nice fine-medium line. The cap shows more wear (some brassing spots in the plating) than the lightly worn barrel. 13cm capped.
