    A first quarter first year Cordovan with the Sterling cap that was a wedding present from an officer to his new bride before he left on a four year all expenses paid North African, Italian and Persian Gulf vacation and that has tooth marks from when the cap was used as a pacifier for at least one young son who was teething.

    If I could have any 51 I do believe it would be a 61. I need the arrow on top. those rainbow caps are awesome, I had one briefly.

    Just to celebrate this thread, (sort of as a counterpart to the "anti-51" thread) I took a few more photos of my favourite:

    I thought the second pen might have been black. I agree, the sterling caps are my favorite, and I like the double jewel pens.

    Note it is a first year pen.

    51s seem timeless for me.

    I grabbed a Navy Grey Vac with a beat up gold filled cap today.

    In my pocket untouched all day. Left it on my desk as I walked out.

    Tomorrow is another day.

    I filled my only 51 today with R&K Verdigris. The wide nib empties the 51 a bit too fast.

    Heres a question: did every single 51 made feature an arrow clip?
    "When Men differ in Opinion, both Sides ought equally to have the Advantage of being heard by the Publick;
    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    There are the clip-less Demi "Princess" pen models.... Bedazzled with "jewels". Don't see them very often.
