Type  Vintage fountain pen in working order.

Product Name  Parker 51 Aerometric.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in USA -- 1950s (We couldn't find a date code and based off of the cap information the pen is from the early 1950s).

Length  5-7/16".

Filling System  Aerometric squeeze filling system. It is working well. It is marked "Parker 51 Special" on the filling system, but none of the other features of this pen match that of the lower-end "Special" pens.

Color  Midnight blue with a stainless steel "Lustraloy" cap and an arrow clip. Pearlescent cap jewel. The blue is very dark in hand but with direct lighting it is clearly blue with no green tones.

Nib   Medium 14k gold nib. It writes smoothly and has large tipping material.

Condition  Excellent condition with some wear. No dents or cracks. The color of the barrel is consistent and there are no major scratches. There are several marks on the barrel that make it unclear whether or not the pen ever had a barrel imprint. The cap looks clean with a few scratches in the finish that don't penetrate the metal. To the left of the clip, there's a small area of pitting The cap jewel looks brand new. The pen is working very well.

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 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.
