Type  Fountain pen

Product Name  Parker 51 Vacumatic, Full Size. The coin silver cap is a little uncommon.

Manufacturer and Year   Parker, made in USA -- 1948 (The date code is an 8 with no dots).

Length  Full size, 5-7/16"

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 coin silver cap. The cap has fine lengthwise lines. It has a gold filled blue diamond clip and a pearlescent cap jewel.

Nib  MEDIUM-FINE gold nib is in nice condition, with a nice amount of tipping, and feels smooth. 

Condition  Very nice condition. The cap pattern is clearly delineated. The coin silver cap shows a lot of fine scratches and there are dings and shallow dents. The blue diamond paint in the clip is gone. The clip also has some plating wear and there are a few nicks in the tassie. The pearlescent cap jewel looks perfect. The pen has been personalized, "Milton Arbetter." The pen is fully restored and working 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.
