Was doing some investigating into Parker 51 fountain pen variants.
I have a Parker 51 mark II, and the cap metal is a very polished chrome-like steel.
I have seen many pictures of other Parker 51 caps, in which the finish is not polished, but more like satin-appearing. Is this an illusion, or is the metal more like a brushed stainless steel, like that of the majority of parker flighters, like the 45, the 61, and the 75?
Thanks very much,
