Parker 51 Custom Mk. lll in Red

Regular price £125.00

This pen is reserved.

The Parker 51 Mk. III was introduced in 1969, and gave way to the Mk. lV in 1971 a very short production run.  This is a Mk. lll Custom fountain pen in absolotely mint, unused condition.

The pen is finished in Red with a 12 Ct. rolled Gold cap which carries a rolled Gold 'arrow' clip and a pearl grey end stud.  This stud was replaced with an integral metal stud in 1971, apparently there was some concern about toddlers ingesting the pearl stud!  This pen therefore had a very short production run, always a good sign for collectors.

The red colour od the Mk. III 51 is much brighter and more, well, red, than that used in other English Parkers.

The overall condition of the fountain pen suggests that it has seen little, if any use.  The pen body is flawless with a deep, lustrous shine, the cap shows no dings and the 'pli-glass' ink sac is unstained. 

The box is new and of very high quality and has a cardboard outer.  It suits the pen well and will serve for protection, transport, and display.

 Despite being around fifty years old the Parker 51 Mk. III still has a modern appearance but with all the Parker 51 prestige. It would make a great vintage every day user.
