Type  Vintage mechanical pencil working well

Product Name  Parker 51 

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, Made in USA - circa 1940s (there is no date code, but they made this color from 1941 to 1948). It can be hard to tell the brown color that is found on Vacumatic P51s and the burgundy that is found on aerometric P51s, and this version of the clip was found on both styles of Parker 51.

Length  5-1/4"

Filling System  It takes 0.9mm (or "thin") leads, which it extends via the traditional twist mechanism. We'll include a small pack of leads with the pencil.

Color  Cordovan Brown barrel with a 1/10 16k gold filled cap in an even pattern of parallel lines up it and gold plated trim. Pearlescent cap jewel.

Condition  Excellent condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings.  This is a lovely pencil in a classic design and in a nice color.  The barrel has light scratching.  The cap has a scratch just above the A in Parker and a tiny dot of a scratch to the right of the top of the clip.  The top area of the clip has brassing on the sides.  The pearlized jewel is mottled around the edges.  The cone has a scratch on one of the rings.  The imprints 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.)

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.
