Parker 51 Vacumatic in blue cedar with medium nib for sale!!
I understand that buying a vintage pen over the internet can feel like a risky proposition, so I’ve included several pictures along with a snapshot of the Paypal receipt indicating that I purchased this pen from Richard Binder in August of 2014. That’s right, this Parker 51 Vac came from the September 2014 “Pen Show Tray” of THE Richard Binder.
You can see the Twitter post announcing the September 2014 Pen Show Tray from Richard here. This pen is 7th from the left in Mr. Binder’s picture. His picture does a better job of showing the blue cedar finish than my pictures taken outside in the shade.
I am selling this 51 because the medium nib produces a line that’s a touch wetter than I prefer and, more importantly, I have two other vintage Parkers (another 51 and a Vacumatic) that I like slightly more. So, as part of the great pen/pencil simplification, this 51 with the vacumatic filling system is headed out the door. I have flushed the sac repeatedly to the point that it expels clear distilled water so this vintage Parker 51 is ready to go.
As you can see, I paid $140 plus shipping for this pen almost exactly 1 year ago.
Priced to sell at $125 (including shipping within the US via USPS). Given that this is a vintage sale, I will entertain legitimate counter offers.
International shipping considered so long as you agree to pay all shipping costs over $5.
