Parker 51 Aerometric in Black. Excellent condition. super smooth nib.

Regular price £65.00

Tax included.
Parker introduced the aerometric filling system on the 51 in 1948.  The clip was shortened in 1951. The word 'Superchrome' was removed from the filler sleeve in 1957 and a 'halo' added to the cap in 1958.  This pen has no reference to 'Superchrome' and no halo, it is also imprinted 'Made in England' so this is a British Parker 51 Aerometric made in 1957. 
The 'lucite' barrel and hood are finished in flawless classic Black and the 'Lustralloy' cap is ding free and is fitted with a 'short arrow' clip, pearl coloured end stud and engraved with the word: 

The pen has been carefully cleaned, checked and fully tested.  The aerometric filling system works well and takes up a good amount of ink.  
The 14 Ct. Gold nib has a fine point which lays down a smooth and consistent line, a very pleasant writer.  It is remarkable that Parker managed to achieve such smoothness with a fine pointed nib, most unusual.

At  sixty odd years old this is a remarkable top quality vintage pen. The 51 is the first choice of many collectors as a daily user, it is totally reliable, stylish and very practical with a great deal of prestige.
