Looks like a Parker 51 Aerometric Mk1, made from around 1949 to the early 60s.

 

Lots of good reading and detailed information here and here.

Thank you! Don't you think the jewel on the cap look kinda strange?

Yes, that did occur to me, but it's hard to get a really good look at it from the pictures posted. Can't say I've seen one with that sort of rounded profile.

Might be the cap from a 51 Special - they had black jewels.

It's not only the jewel color but the shape as well it looks smaller and sort of sphere like shape.

May it be a fake one? It seems to me that it's not, but that jewel's shape makes me doubt..

It could be that the jewel is a replacement.  But without better pictures of the cap it's hard to say.  Also, would it be possible to get a photo of the inscription on the sac sleeve, or at least a transcription of the text?  That will help narrow down the dates if there isn't an actual date code on the pen itself.

I've bought it on the bay and have't received it yet. The seller described it as an early parker 51 in a good working order , cleaned and tested. So, I hope it isn't a "FAKE". Btw, I haven't seen Parker 51 fakes yet...
