NOTE: This set is all correct with the 14K caps, 14K Clips, 14K Blind Cap Tassie, and 14K Pencil Cone.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, collector, hood, and breather tube. Replaced the old rubber diaphragm with a new one. This Parker 51 fountain pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 6" posted. The pencil measures 5 1/8" in length.
The fountain pen cap, barrel, and hood are in mint condition with no chips, cracks, dings, dents, major scratching, or repairs. The caps are excellent with no significant scratching, dings, or denting. The barrels are very clean, again with no damage, nicks, scratches, or repairs. The set has plastic pearlized jewels that have a high shine. The clutch ring retains the gold wash centering, albeit a little light in spots. The caps are stamped with, "14K GOLD MADE IN U.S.A.". The barrel is stamped with, PARKER 51 MADE IN THE U.S.A. with a dating code of 5 (for 1945) in the 2nd Quarter". There are no monograms or personalizations on either the barrels or caps.
The Vacumatic Filling System has been completely restored and works wonderfully. When testing the Filling System with water - roughly 8-10 presses and the filling unit will nearly fill. The filling unit operates as it was originally intended to and without issue.
The actual writing portion of the 14K Parker NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .54mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a fine line of approximately .54mm to .58mm when measuring with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
I have to say this Parker 51 set is in incredible condition with the solid 14K gold caps displaying perfectly - if you are a Parker 51 collector, it is a must-have set for your collection. I would consider this set in Near Mint to Mint Condition. This is a HOLY GRAIL type Parker 51 set - it is ready to write or just add to your prized writing arsenal collection.
