Up here for auction is a vintage Parker “51” Double Jewel Mark I series fountain pen, which was manufactured in USA circa 1950s. The size of this Parker 51 is large, with overall length near 5-3/8 inches. The Parker “51” went into production in 1941, and remained a best-seller for decades thereafter.
