Vintage PARKER 51 SPECIAL FOUNTAIN PEN Aluminum Filler Ink Gold Nib Metal Cap

Vintage PARKER 51 SPECIAL FOUNTAIN PEN Aluminum Filler Ink Gold Nib Metal Cap
Vintage PARKER 51 SPECIAL FOUNTAIN PEN Aluminum Filler Ink Gold Nib Metal Cap Plastic Body Teal Blue. A vintage Parker 51’Special’ fountain pen. Features a gold tipped nib, metal cap and aluminum pinch filler. Add something’special’ to your fountain pen collection with this original Parker 51 Special. Made with a metal cap and a blue teal plastic body, this early model fountain pen features the aluminum’pinch’ filler with the words’Parker 51 Special’ across the body (see photo). The 51 Special was a later addition to the line, an economy version without a gold nib and with a simplified Aerometric filler mechanism. Specials also usually have caps that are polished bright rather than frosted, and a cap jewel that is black, not pearlescent (note, however, that late-production Specials from the 1960s resembled normal 51s, with frosty caps, pearl jewels, and gold nibs). This pen is 5 1/4 inches long capped and 6 inches posted. It weighs 1.2 ounces. The biggest issue with this pen is that it is missing the clip from the cap, although one can be acquired fairly easily. The cap and body are in good condition and have no major scratches, dings, dents, or cracks. The ink sac appears to be supple and untorn, though a rebuild of the whole pen is recommended.
