Product Name  Parker 51 Vacumatic, Demi Size

Manufacturer and Year   Parker, made in U.S.A. -- 1947 (The date code is a clear 7 with no dots).

Length  Demi size, 4-13/16"

Filling System  Vacumatic (piston/plunger) filling system. We've fully restored it in house with a new diaphragm, and it's working very well.

Color  Black body with a gold filled 1/8 14k cap in a pattern of close parallel lines and an arrow clip. Pearlescent cap jewel.

Nib  FINE gold nib is in excellent condition, with a large amount of tipping, and feels smooth. 

Condition  Excellent condition.  The hood is scratched (especially on the underside near the feed) and has some tool marks.  The barrel has light microscratching with the majority toward the end caused by cap posting.  The imprint is nice and clear.  The cap looks great though there is a small shallow dent to the right of the clip.  Otherwise, the cap just has consistent microscratching but no brassing.  The clip looks very nice.  Imprints on the cap are clear.

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.
