Description

Details

Type   Aerometric filling fountain pen, working well.

Product Name  Parker 51 Special (Specials usually have octantium nibs, but towards the end of the model life Parker started putting 14k nibs on them.)

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in U.S.A. -- 1960-64, based off of the cap information.

Length  5-3/8 inches, full size.

Filling System  Aerometric squeeze filling system. We've cleaned and tested it, it's working well.

Color  The color is blue. It looks similar to the midnight blue and is very dark. It photographed as almost black, but we believe this was just designated blue. It has a shiny stainless steel cap with an arrow clip, chrome plated trim, and black cap jewel as is common on Specials.

Nib  Extra Fine 14k nib. It is a smooth writer with nice tipping. Parker 51 Specials usually had octanium nibs but they did occasionally have gold nibs.

Condition  Very nice condition. The body of the pen looks great with handwear and one or two marks in addition to the capping ones near the clutch band. The cap has handwear, and has two or three marks as well, but no dents or dings. The clip has a lot of wear. The pen is working well.

Policies

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
