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 Blue Diamond Clip, Chevron Cap Band and 14K NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy of fountain pen. This Parker Vacumatic is a major size, which measures 5 1/8" in length capped and 6 1/8" posted.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The cap has the Split Arrow Nickel Plated Blue Diamond Clip and the Chevron Cap Band that shows no brassing. The top jewel is black - I polished to bring back a beautiful shine. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "Geo. S. Parker Vacumatic Made in U.S.A. with date code 2 in the second quarter". The transparency of the barrel is fantastic and a person can easily see through the barrel, albeit there is minor ambering. The blind cap securely fits. The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 7 presses to fill 7/8 full.
The Parker NIB is a 14K gold split arrow NIB. The iridium is great and creates a very nice writing experience. The 14K Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .64mm, measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample the NIB writes with a fine line to a broad stroke line. The writing sample provided, the thinnest line measures at .53mm and the broad line measured with digital calipers is 1.02mm with normal to 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 is in Excellent Condition. This is a gorgeous Parker Vacumatic to add to any writing arsenal collection.
