PARKER 51 

Mexican Gold Caps

Fountain pen & Mechanical pencil 

Set

                                    


 Some time near or after the end of World War II, 

Parker 51 pens with customized sterling silver caps by Mexican metal smiths 

were offered in Mexico near the border with the United States. 

Many of these pen caps were heavily reworked with new engravings and with gold overlays 

being added made of hallmarked 14 karat gold or unhallmarked 10 karat gold.

The caps started as smooth finish. Then the engraving work was done

by individual jewelers, 


Pen has:

*Seal of Mexico, an eagle with spread wings and a snake in its beak

*A fancy stagecoach with horses 

*An Aztec warrior head with feathered headdress

*Coat of arms of Mexico, in an elaborate frame with a crown at top

*Fancy raised border filigree ornament elements at the top and base of the cap


Mexican Metalsmith Overlay Design elements

10 Karat Gold Overlay Cap

Collector's condition 

Working but due to its age, 

would benefit from service for wonderful use.
