The third and last generation Parker 51 from the early 1970s, in rage red with gold filled Custom cap and matching metal cap jewel, made in the USA. The pen is new old stock, never inked and complete with the box. The nib is a fine point.
The second generation of the aerometric 51 was introduced in 1969 with a slightly slimmer barrel and a cap similar to the 61 but with the large 51 imprint. New colours mirroring the 61 range were also launched, including this rage red, brighter than the previous burgundy red. In about 1972 there was another slight redesign with a metal cap jewel replacing the plastic jewel marking this pen as the final, Mark III aerometric design, This design continued until production of the 51 ended in 1978, so for about six years and is less common than earlier vacumatic and aerometric models..
CONDITION: mint, new old stock. The box has some minor marks from shelf storage.
