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 near mint condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The caps are excellent with no significant scratching or denting. The barrels are very clean, again with no damage, nicks, scratches or repairs. The set has the plastic pearlized jewels that have a high shine. The clutch ring retains the gold wash centering. 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.". There are no monograms or personalizations to the barrel 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 medium point measuring roughly .66mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a medium line of approximately at .62mm when measuring with digital calipers. This Nib writes very smoothly. 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.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap. The set comes in the original Parker 51 display box that I would consider to be in average condition.
I have to say this Parker 51 set is incredible - if you are a Parker 51 collector, it is a must-have set for your collection. I would consider this set in Excellent Condition. This is a HOLY GRAIL type Parker 51 set - it is ready to write or just add to your prized writing arsenal collection.
