This 1950s India black Parker 51 is in excellent condition with the only damage I can see being very minor plating wear to the edges of the pocket clip at the shoulder. You will not even see this without a loupe. This is being very picky. There are no splits, cracks, chips and no noticeable scratches to either cap or barrel/hood. The cap body exhibits the lovely delicate frosting that you'd expect to see on these Parker 51 pens. The grey cap top jewel is clear with no chips or cracks. Around the cap lip is the imprint, showing just "PARKER". The cap has a chrome plated pocket clip. The barrel and hood are still glossy with no noticeable scratches or any other damage and in the India Black colour. The lovely 14 carat gold hooded nib is in a medium point. Unscrewing the barrel, the Aerometric filler is made from polished stainless steel and unmarked by damage. The original pliglass ink sac is still fitted and is still in perfectly serviceable condition, and with the usual internal ink staining.
I have fully serviced this pen. The medium point nib feels very smooth on paper and writes with a very pleasing wet and consistent line.
