Be the first to review this product

One of the "Fantasy" Parker 51s built from old and re-manufactured parts. We don't know who made this one, but it uses the Sheaffer Tiger Eye material from the 1990s. It has a gold filled converging lines cap and arrow clip. Aerometric filling system. Full size pen with a 1.3mm stub gold nib. Excellent condition, working well.

Description

Details

Type  Fountain pen

Product Name  Parker 51 Fantasy Aerometric

Manufacturer and Year Parker, Sheaffer, and Other - the pen was assembled using a combination of Parker parts (nib assembly, filling system, hood) and re-manufactured parts. The barrel material looks like Sheaffer material. The cap was made in Argentina, so it might have been an Ariel Kulock creation, though he is not the only pen marker doing Parker 51s.

Length  Full size pen, 5-5/8"

Filling System  Aerometric squeeze filling system

Color  Similar to the "Tiger Eye" material originally used on the Sheaffer Levenger Balance II. Olive green and yellow with black and red tones. The acrylic is a bit like the vintage candy stripe patterns. The material is used for the barrel. The pen has a black section. The cap is a gold filled "custom" cap with grouped converging lines pattern, pearlescent cap jewel, and arrow clip.

Nib  We think this is a retipped gold 1.3mm stub nib, and not a factory original. It is smooth and flares out a little. See the writing sample below. It looks like the work done by Greg Minuskin, but we are not certain.

Condition  Excellent condition. The barrel has no scratches or cracks. The section is clean. (When we got the pen it had a cracked hood, so we replaced it with a black Parker hood.) The cap has thin plating and you can see the silver colored under-material peeking thru along the edge of the cap and elsewhere. It looks much better in hand than it does in the photographs. The cap has other small marks but no dents or dings.

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.
