The Parker model 51 was presented on the market by Parker in 1941 with a starting price of $12.50 for the basic version, used for other high-end pens in the company. But even if the global launch took place in 1941, the pen was completed in 1939, at the 51st anniversary of the founding of the company, hence the name assigned to it. Before the official launch the pen first entered the market in the Caribbean and South America (Colombia and Venezuela), and from August to November 1940 in some selected stores of the United States (Chicago, Philadelphia and Champaign), it then officially launched in January 1941 in San Francisco.
The Parker 51 was probably the most successful fountain pen model, and it is a true turning point especially stylistically, thanks to the transition to a modernist and utilitarian conception of the fountain pens. Also, the name marked the change in the trend of the company, which began using numbers to identify their models, something that had no longer been done since 1910, and solved the problem of having a meaningful name in all languages.
The 51 was a revolutionary model that introduced innovations such as the hooded nib and interlocking metal cap, but in reality there is no absolute primogeniture in none of these features. Parker was able to give this pen technical and stylistic trends of the time, taking advantage of technological innovations and materials and with this going ahead of all the contemporary production with a model that turned out to be revolutionary.
