If you seek the best, than this set is for you. This is a wonderful Parker 51 set from the 2nd quarter of 1944. It has a gold filled cap and solid 14KT clip, clip ring and barrel tassie. The blue diamond in the clip is perfect. The post of the pencil still retains 99% of the gold wash. The eraser is worn but there is a bit left. The clip and nose cone of the pencil are clearly marked "14KT". This is as nice a set as you will find with no dings, dents, personal engravings or any other issues to be described. There is moderate patina on the caps which I have left, as found. If you prefer, I can bring the caps to a high luster before shipping (please request). The nib is a Fine+. This is a lightly used set that will be a pleasure to use. Restored.
