I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, breather tube, and barrel. Replaced the old diaphragm with a new, properly sized one. Hand polished the Gold Filled Blue Diamond Clip, Chevron Cap Band, bottom jewel tassel and 14K Parker NIB. Additionally, I cleaned, buffed, polished and waxed the barrel, cap, and blind 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 chips, cracks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. This cap displays the Split Arrow Gold Filled Blue Diamond Clip and Chevron Cap Banding, which display no brassing. The top and bottom jewels are black and been polished to bring back a beautiful shine. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER PARKER VACUMATIC MADE IN U.S.A. with date code 1 (for 1941) in the 3rd Quarter". The transparency of the barrel is very good and a person can easily see through the barrel, albeit with minor/mild ambering. The blind cap securely fits. The Vacumatic Speedline Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 12-14 presses to fill full. This Parker Vacumatic is a long major size, which measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 6 3/8" posted.
The Parker NIB is a 14K gold 2-Tone Split Arrow NIB. The actual writing portion/tip of this 14K Parker NIB has a medium. Stub point measuring roughly .69mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating the writing sample, this Parker NIB writes with a double extra fine to broad stroke. The writing sample provided in the listing image the horizontal stroke/line measures at .27mm with light pressure and the broad line measured at 1.20mm when measured with digital calipers with normal to firm pressure. The sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is a fantastic vintage Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen in the Azure Pearl Celluloid that is in Excellent Condition. It is a difficult to acquire Parker Vacumatic to find in a Long Major size with this color due to a manufacturing run of 18 months that started in mid-1940 - compared to 4+ years for the other colors. This Parker is ready to write or add to your writing arsenal collection.
