Hepworth Comment

Fine example of the iconic Parker 51 fountain pen. Dating later English made Parker 51's can be difficult. This particular 51 appears to be a transitional model. Discounting the early vacumatic version, this aerometric filling pen has the narrow clutch retaining ring on the barrel (Mk III), but with rounded end to barrel with vent hole (Mk II).
