Kinda random but I found a 69-71 Parker 51 fountain pen complete with box, perfect condition and in dove grey.

Pretty freaking great pen :)
Well found. Those are getting quite rare now, especially in NOS state like yours. I went through most of my school years with a hand-me-down P51 in teal blue with a broad stub nib. Back in those days, we were all required to write with a "proper" pen.

I actually prefer a fully exposed "traditional" nib, but the P51 has to be one of the best writers ever made.

What's the nib in yours?

This one had a fine which for me made my writing look woeful (yep blame the pen)
Somewhere I have a twsbi eco 1.1 stub which is a joy to write with and cheap comparatively.
