The second pen for today is a Parker 51 vacumatic pen and pencil set. The pen is fitted with a custom 1mm stub, and writes like a dream! The pen is cedar blue, but the pencil appears to be black. This was apparently a very common problem with the cedar blue pencils. The celluloid would darken to black in most cases. In any case, this appears to be a matching set. The sterling silver cap on the pen needed a little work. Unfortunately you can see some evidence of my work. The pictures should tell the story well.
Also this pen is dated 1948. This is the last year that Parker produced the vacumatic 51s. Part way through 1948 the aerometric filler came into production. Get this pen for only $215! You will not find a better deal anywhere else!
