Type   Aerometric filling fountain pen, working well.

Product Name  Parker 51 Special.  Note that the filling system doesn't say "Special," but we have seen that in the past on these demi sized pens. The black jewel, smooth cap, and steel nib confirm it is a Special, though it is a bit unusual to find one with a 14k nib.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in U.S.A. -- 1948 (the date code is a clear 8 with no dots).

Length  5-1/8 inches, demi size.

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

Color  The color is teal blue. Shiny stainless steel cap with an arrow clip, chrome plated trim, and black cap jewel as is common on Specials.

Nib  FINE gold nib is smooth and firm with tipping material. It's a smooth and nice looking nib. Parker 51 Specials usually had octanium nibs but they did occasionally have gold nibs.

Condition  Excellent condition. Handwear and microscratches throughout. The section has some marks from capping and a discolored spot from stress around the nib. The imprint is a little worn but easily read. No personalization.  It's working very well.

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.)

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.
