Description:

1941 Parker 51 in cedar blue with a 1/10 16 K gold filled cap. First year cedar is a different color than the later pens. This is a later example of the first year with the cap imprint at the lip and the plastic filler, but it has aluminum jewels top and bottom. The barrel imprint, at the bottom of the blind cap, is barely readable and the pen, in general, shows expected wear. It has an owner imprint with the initials “TOY” stacked in th indicia. The cap is clean except for one minor ding and a 2 mm spot of brassing at the lip below the indicia. An essential part of any 51 collection and/or a superb user. (PA4413)
