Parker 51 Flighter Fountain Pen. USA. 1949 4th Quarter. Near Mint!
Both cap and barrel are solid Stainless Steel. Cap has a gold-filled ring and the pocket clip is also gold-filled. Original Pearl cap Jewel.
The upper barrel is Stamped: “MADE IN U.S.A. 9”, Making this a 1949-4th Quarter and that is the last lot of P-51’s Parker used the single digit code for dating. By 1950 they went to the “2” digit code. So this is a “special” piece of Parker 51 History!
As you can see in photos, there are no scratches and the pen is in Excellent to Near Mint Condition. **Notice the threads on the “connector”, these are in superior condition, as are the inner barrel threads. This barrel has more turns than any P-51 Flighter I have ever dealt with (whether owned or works on for others).
14k Fine point nib. This pen has been tested and fills full/fast, Very smooth writer, laying down a steady fine line.
Pen measures 5 3/8” capped and 6 1/8” posted.
This pen was completely refurbished back last December, including pli-glass (sac), stainless steel vent tube and full under the “hood” cleaning!
