Why is it clear?

Picked up a couple pens at an antique fair. The one with the sterling cap is what I’m curious about. It’s a 51 vacumatic but why does it have a clear cap and a clear section by the nib (I don’t know what that piece is called) I haven’t seen anything with clear prices like that. Almost like a demonstrator.

Can anyone shed some light?

The only thing I can find on the Parker Penography site is a reference to a "half Demonstrator" model for pen retailers that looks to be what you are describing.

Thanks I appreciate the help. It seemed pretty unique so I definitely wasn’t gonna leave it. I still haven’t checked to see if the bladder is any good on either of them but it seems fine. Thanks again man
