Vintage Pens: Parker 51 Set
Vintage Pens: 1261 Parker 51 Set
Here's a pretty pair of Parker 51s. The rarer cordovan brown really stands out on this vintage pen set with gold-filled caps. The pencil is in near-mint condition. There are no scratches, dents or dings in the cap or barrel. The cap twists easily to extend and retract the lead. The fountain pen has a working diaphragm that was replaced within the past year or so. No imprint on the barrel. The hood and barrel show little ridges where the cap has rested closed. Otherwise there is minimal wear and tear. There is a little dent under where the clip must have snapped into place after multiple shirt pocket removals. Aside from a couple tiny marks, the rest of the cap is clean of indentations. There is some heavy brassing at the base of the back of the cap. The pattern on the cap is straight lines with a blank window for some initials. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to fine line. 13.5cm capped.
