This is a wonderful Parker 51 Aerometric finished in Black with a Rolled Gold cap. Made in the USA, this is a very good example of this model which dates from around 1955.
The pen is fitted with the reliable aerometric filling mechanism which has been fully serviced.
The pen itself is very nice but unremarkable until you come across the nib! Oh my goodness - it is fitted with one of those completely bonkers nibs that Parker did occasionally produce. It writes with a 1.3mm line (Double Broad) with an oblique italic shape. What a Nib!!
The cap has no plating wear and is in very good condition with no dings.
