If you are having work done on your Parker 51,
why not spring for a new nib with 100% iridium and no bad habits?

Type  Nib for Parker 51 fountain pen. No other parts, just the nib you see pictured.

Product Name  This was Parker part number 295-165 -- see scan of the Parker inventory envelope and inspection slip (not included in this listing). It will fit all Parker 51s, though the nib may have been produced toward the end of the Parker 51 life cycle when they were only making aerometrics. We tested the nib on the earlier Vacumatic verison as well and it fit and worked. It looks exactly like the used nibs in our parts bin which we have recovered from vacumatic versions of the Parker 51, except that it has a second hole (see comparison photo below).

Manufacturer and Year  Parker USA - 1970s

Nib  Marked 14k and "Parker Made in USA". We consider this to be a fine, though it is wider than most of the nibs we see on Parker 51s just because it has all its iridium and is not worn. See writing sample below, done on 5mm grid paper.

Condition  Perfect brand new condition. This nib has never been installed in a pen and has been stored away for close to 50 years. Perfect iridium.

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.
