Parker 51, c1948 MKIV 1/10 12K Gold filled cap, Red barrel & section.

The Parker "51" aerometrics

 The MKII pens of course had a brand-new filling system that was to be adopted by virtually all Parkers in the future, the Aerometric

 Parker developed a sac in a tough plastic material, called Pli-Glass, that had a life expectancy of 30 years, but are now going on 60+. These sacs were also in a see through material which allowed one to see how much ink that was left in the pen. The sac was encapsuled inside a metal tube on which a metal pressure bar was mounted. To reveal this filling mechanism one had to unscrew the entire body cover from the section ring and back.
