The Parker 51 is a classic of the vintage fountain pens. Admiration for the pen is well deserved both for its iconic hooded design as well as its overall durable and reliable construction. The 51 is truly a workhorse ready at hand ready to write from the start.
The hooded design and durable materials allowed Parker to use the quick drying Parker Superchrome while also allowing users to leave the pen uncapped for longer periods of time.
This particular example is in the Cocoa colour, made in the United States with a date code for the 4th quarter of 1948.
