Was there ever an ad made for the "51" with a P-51 plane? Hubby is very fond of both. I'd like to find one and frame it for him if there is such a creature.

Hi

That's what I want. Now that I know it exists, I will be consumed with finding one. Thanks.

The one shown would have most likely have been from a National Geographic of that period...
I have a bunch of Sheaffer ads from that magazine I got when I was more into Sheaffer pens....
They are generally really good quality ....

This ad shows up on ebay a lot. Just search for "Parker ad" and you should eventually find one.

Most of Parker's ads ran for only one issue but in many magazines at a time.

Item 180379405511 on ebay.

The price is about right. This ad is one of the most popular "51" ads out there.

Thanks. I've seen this one, and would have bought it in a heart beat if not for the tear in the corner.

Yes, I have seen that one a lot. Hang in there, you will find one. I love my small collection of 51 ads, I really need to find a way to rotate/display them...
