It was a quality writing instrument, matching every pen style made, as to color and cap combination. Very early production in did not have the gripping ridges at the end of the barrel. Examples of these are very hard to find as they were probably only test market specimens. By August , the Parker literature of the time was already showing the ridges at the pencil end. In addition, early pencils were made of celluloid, unlike the pens which were made out of Lucite. Lucite was starting to be a hard material to secure due to the pre-war preparations and Parker was probably making sure they had material for pen production. When originally sold, the colors of the pens and pencils were perfect matches, but over time, due to the instability of celluloid, the pencils discolored and darkened.

Parker "51" Special
A pretty good investment, eh? It was named the Parker "51" because Parker felt that they needed a name that wouldn't be hard to pronounce in any country and also easy to remember. Also at this time Route 51 was built through Janesville and it is quite probable that this also was a reason for the the name. Furthermore It also came out of research inthe 51'st anniversary for the Parker Pen Company.
The Parker "51" Mark II is probably the most functional fountain pen ever made. It never leaks, always works and never breaks, well almost It also, in my humble opinion, is one of the nicest pen designs ever made. It was the first pen that had the nib under a hood, the thought behind this was not to let the ink have a chance of drying on the way from the ink reservoir to the paper. The hooded nib prolonged this unavoidable thing.
To achieve this Parker also had to redesign the nib, a pen part that had looked roughly the same for centuries. The new gold nib that was to fit inside the hood was tubular and rather rigid.
The body was designed to look like a jet-fighter from the side without the wings, of course and the material used Lucite was the same that some wartime planes had in their nose-cones. These pens had some distinct features. Most, but not all, had an aluminium filler with a diamond shaped imprint on the brass button, others came with the plastic filler.
Also the one-lined date code was situated at the end of the blind cap. This imprint was moved up towards the body clutch ring at the end offrom the imprint was in double lines.
There are however today reproduction jewels available in aluminium, so this feature alone is not a guarantee that the pen is a First Year. Furthermore these pens were fitted with clips that had a larger blue diamond than subsequent pens and if the clip is removed the Parker imprint is visible in reverse on the back, on accont of a different manufacturing method.
Inside the cap the clutch is also longer. It's not uncommon for the First Year pens to differ in the colour shades from pens later produced. It was in most cts a re-designed button filler. It was fitted with red threads by the filler and it was also advertised as the Red band "51", as opposed to the Black band "51", which had the ordinary Vacumatic filler.
