Here's a very nice Parker "51" in Black that has just been serviced.  The pen was carefully inspected and all internal parts were cleaned with a technical ink cleaning solution.  The original pli-glass sac is supple and it is easy to see the ink level when filled.  The filler housing is bright with no corrosion and the pen fills properly.  The body and cap have been cleaned and conservatively hand polished and the pen looks great.  The body is glossy and shows only light normal use marks.  The cap is bright and ding/dent free with a tight clip and very nice black jewel.  The cap slips on and off smoothly and shows only light micro surface marks as expected. This is the Special model and is fitted with Parker's proprietary Octanium nib that was developed just for this model.  The nib is in excellent condition and put down a smooth line with crisp characters when tested on Rhodia 5mm graph paper with Waterman Serenity Blue ink (see writing sample).  Based on my inspection I believe the pen to have been produced circa 1952-57 and it appears to be in all original condition just as it left the factory more than 60 years ago.   This "51" Special looks great, feels good in the hand and on the page and is ready for use by the next owner.
