Type   Mechanical pencil

Product Name   Parker 51 

Manufacturer and Year   Parker USA, circa 1942 ... this is a first version but not "first year" model as identified by the pattern (wavy lines alternating with straight ones) and the imprint high on the cap. (The first year pencils had a smooth plastic gripping area, whereas this is lined.)

Length   Full size pencil - 5-1/4"

Filling System   Uses 0.9mm leads, which it extends by twisting the cap. We'll includ a small packette of vintage leads.

Color   Black with a 1/10 14k gold filled cap.

Condition   Excellent condition. There are some very light scratches in the barrel, and less on the cap. No brassing or dents or dings, just one small scratch (see close-up), and the cap looks really great. The clip looks like it was adjusted to fit more tightly against the cap, so it is a little bowed. The pencil is working perfectly and has a good looking eraser (though the eraser is dried out and hard).

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.
