Description

Details

Type  Modern Special Edition Fountain Pen

Product Name Parker 51 Special Edition with Empire State Cap to celebrate the world’s most sold fountain pen, the Parker “51”. 

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, UK -- 2002

Length  5-9/16"

Filling System  Cartridge or converter. It comes fitted with a piston converter. 

Color Bright turquoise barrel.  The sterling cap is etched with a design reflecting the shape of the Empire State Building. Also known as the Icicle design. It has pearlescent cap and barrel jewels and 23K trim including the classic blue diamond parker clip.

Nib  14K fine nib.  

Condition  Very nice condition, in box.  No chips, dings, or dents.  This is a brightly colored, very attractive pen.  There are a few hairline cracks at the top of the barrel where it meets the section, none longer than 1/8 on an inch.  Otherwise the barrel is shiny and new looking.  We have priced the pen accordingly, about $250 lower than we would a pen without these fine cracks.

The cap has some light plating wear on the cap band and some little dots of wear at the very top of the cap.  The cap has some light handwear.  The clip is beautiful as are the blue diamond and the pearlescent cap and barrel jewels.  These pens are almost impossible to find without cracks in the barrel, and usually they extend to the lip of the barrel and make it impossible to screw on the barrel securely.  You will want to be careful when screwing on the barrel after filling, as over-tightening can increase crack and we cannot give a refund if the pen has been damaged. This would not be a good pen for you if you grip the pen on the barrel side of the clutch ring as this will put pressure on the cracks, however it should be fine if you grip on the clutch ring or on the section. The imprints are clear.

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.

Promo Codes and Coupons: You need to be registered and logged in in order to use one of our promo codes. They can each only be used once per customer. If you have problems getting a promo code to be accepted, sometimes it helps to log out and log back in again.
