Type  Mechanical pencil with the "repeater" mechanism. 

Product Name  Parker 51 

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in USA - (1950s -- no date code)

Length  Standard size pencil, 5-3/16"

Filling System  Takes 0.9mm (or "thin") leads, which it extends by the cap-actuated, or "repeater" method - you click the cap down to extend a lead, very similar to modern day mechanical pencils. The mechanism is working but is a bit stiff.

Color  Burgundy body with a 1/10 12k gold cap in a concave lines pattern.  Arrow clip and a pearlescent cap jewel.  The burgundy looks dark in the photos, but it is a true burgundy.

Condition  Very nice condition with no cracks, chips, dents or dings.  This is a pretty, shiny mechanical pencil with a regal color scheme.  The barrel has light to moderate scratching.  The cone looks excellent.  The cap has plating wear along the bottom edge and there is some pitting in between the lines at the top of the cap. It has two dents to the right of the clip.   The clip has plating wear around the edges.  The imprints are clear.

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.
