15117: Parker 51 set in box: black first-year double-jewel Vac-filler, aluminum Speedline filler, aluminum jewels, two-tone clutch ring, blind cap imprint good except for date code, illegible due to polishing (condition of pen is otherwise solidly near mint). Flawless 1/10 16K gold filled caps are crisp, grouped lines pattern with cartouche, handsomely engraved with monogram. Pencil equally clean, uses .9 mm lead. First-year sets are especially scarce, this one comes in a notable early box.

11302: Parker 51: Cedar Blue first-year, smooth sterling silver cap with imprint at top, metal jewels appear to be silver rather than aluminum; good blind cap imprint with 2nd quarter date code, aluminum Speedline filler with diamond at end of plunger. Neatly cut oval depression on hood behind and in line with the nib appears to be an early form of nib position indicator, as later adopted for the 61, but whether factory or aftermarket cannot be determined. Name on barrel, a few pinhead dings to the cap, slight hood shrinkage.
