A classic Parker 51 double jewel fountain pen in India Black with first year cap.
The pen is dated the first quarter of 1942 with a clear imprint and it has a first year cap complete with a high imprint and rare scalloped line pattern. The imprint " 1/10 of 14K gold filled made in USA" is near the edge of the top of the cap. The imprint "PARKER 51 MADE IN USA 2" with three dots for first quarter is as sharp as new. The cap date discrepancy appears common in the early production 51's with the Parker factory utilising the caps on hand for the second year pens (first production year was 1940/1941). The clutch ring has an excellent amount of gold fill still as a testament to the limited use this pen has had.
The pen was professionally restored almost three years ago and has been sitting in my display case since then. As such, the filler sac will need replacing as it doesn't draw much liquid when tested with water. The nib is a nice fine size per the photos. The cap and blind cap jewels are excellent and aside from some microscratches on the barrel and cap, the pen is in excellent overall condition.
$355 USD including FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING via standard post with tracking (signature on delivery, express post and/or insurance is extra please ask). Please send me a PM if you would like to purchase, first to pay secures the pen.
All payments are via paypal. I can accept the euro or other major currency equivalent of this amount too, please contact to discuss.
