Description: 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.
Introduced in 1941 and produced into 1972 the Parker 51 was designed to take the fountain pen into the "modern" era and compete with the introduction of the ball point. 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 a black Vacumatic with Lustralloy cap and dated to 4th quarter of 1947.
