Imperfections shouldn't get in the way of a good daily driver in the world of vintage pens. Parker 51s were the most popular luxury pen of the vintage pen heyday. We restored the 1950s aerometric filler with a new "pli-glass" ink sac. The pen is bargain priced because of the pitting and flaws in its gold-plated cap. The cap works perfectly well, it is just cosmetically challenged. The clip works well, too, but it, also, looks worse for wear. The hood and barrel are crack free. There is a scar around the barrel where the cap rests in the closed position. You'll write a rigid, firm fine line with its 14k gold nib. 13.5cm capped.
