I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, breather tube, cap and barrel. Replaced the old diaphragm with a new, properly sized one. Hand polished the Nickel Plated Feather Clip, Nickel Plated Three Ring Cap Banding and 14K Mono-tone NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished & Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of the fountain pen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no cracks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The barrel has marvelous transparency with a person easily seeing through the barrel, albeit with minor ambering. The cap has the Feather Nickel Plated Clip with triple ring cap bands displaying a wonderful nickel color with no brassing. The top and bottom jewels are striped to match the cap, barrel and section and have been polished to shine great again. The barrel is stamped with a clean imprint, "GEO S. PARKER PARKER VACUMATIC MADE IN USA PATD with 1935 date code in the 4th quarter - NOTICE THE DATE CODE IS VERTICAL ON THIS BARREL, TYPICALLY THEY ARE HORIZONTAL". The jeweled blind cap securely fits. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen is a Standard Model that has a wider diameter cap and barrel than the standard juniors. It measures 5 1/8" in length capped and 6 1/8" posted.
The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 7 to 10 presses and it will 7/8 full. This Vacumatic has the lock down filling unit, typical on 1st generation Vacumatics. This filling unit has been greased and now operates as it was designed to.
The 14K Two-Tone U.S.A. Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .60mm when measured with digital calipers. The NIB is the split arrow two-tone 14K Vacumatic type that is in excellent condition with no plating loss and creates wonderfully smooth, yet wet, writing experience. The writing sample provided in the image has a fine stroke that measures .53mm and can flex to a double broad stroke of roughly 1.52mm with medium / firm pressure. The sample was done with the actual pen in the images that is listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue - Black Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is a beautiful vintage Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen in the Silver Pearl Celluloid that has all the "high-line" features; 3-Ring Cap Banding, 2-Tone NIB, Striped Section, Striped top and bottom Jewels with excellent transparency and would grade it in Excellent Condition. The celluloid silver pearl color is gorgeous on this Parker. This is collector worthy and is truly gorgeous Parker Vac from the 1st Generation. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
