Parker 51 Aerometric in Teal.

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 so it can be dated to 1957. 

The colour is most attractive, it is definitely Blue but has a Green tinge, not a common '51' colour.  The photographs make the pen look darker than it actually is.

The 'Lustralloy' cap is ding free and is fitted with a 'short arrow' clip, pearl coloured end stud and engraved with: 


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 broad point which lays down a smooth and consistent line, a very pleasant writer.
The box is the correct one, it is quite battered externally but the interior is in fair condition

At  sixty 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.
