Parker 51 Special Edition with an Empire State cap (SB 628)
Nib: 14 Kt Medium
This is a Parker 51 Special edition with an Empire State cap. The barrel is "Vista Blue". The cap is sterling silver. This Special Edition was introduced in 2002. It is different than the original Parker 51 because it's a cartridge/converter filler, and the nib is a standard design, rather than the 51's truly integrated nib. This example is nearly perfect - no cracks and only one light scratch on the hood that requires a loupe to see clearly. Examples in condition this superb are quite uncommon. Medium nib. 5 1/2", 140 mm. The original snakeskin style box is also in excellent condition. No paperwork.
