For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Restored 1942 Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen with Jeweler Coin Stacked Cap Banding in Azure Pearl Celluloid. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, and put back together and now is in wonderful writing condition.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and breather tube. Replaced the old diaphragm with a new, properly sized one. Hand polished the Blue Diamond Gold Filled Feather Split Arrow Clip, Wide Coin Stacked Jewelers Cap Band, and 14K Gold NIB. I have cleaned, buffed, & polished the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of the fountain pen.
The celluloid on this Parker Vacumatic is lovely and vibrant! 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. The cap has the Blue Diamond Gold Filled Split Arrow Clip displaying no wear. The Gold-Filled Wide Jewelers Coin Stack Cap Banding displays a wonderful gold-filled color with very little wear. The top jewel is black and polished to a great shine. The barrel has an imprint that is stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER PARKER VACUMATIC MADE IN U.S.A. with a date code 2 (for 1942) in the 1st quarter". The transparency of the barrel is near water-clear as one can easily see through it, albeit with mild ambering. The blind cap securely fits. There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. This Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen is a Major Size measuring 5 1/8" in length capped and 6 1/8" posted.
This Parker Vacumatic Filling Unit works great, typically in my tests with water about 8 to 12 presses and it will fill roughly full. I have greased the filling unit and now operates smoothly and works flawlessly.
This Parker Vacumaric has a 14K NIB date matching 1942, Q1 date imprint that writes very smooth with semi-flex line. The actual writing portion (iridium) of the 14K Parker NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .53mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing the sample in the images, the NIB writes with a fine to broad stroke. The fine stroke measures at .53mm with light pressure and the broad stroke measures 1.22mm under medium pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing 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.
This is an uncommon Parker Vacumatic Azure Fountain Pen due to the Coin Stacked Wide Jewelers Cap Banding. This Parker Vac would grade in the Very Fine to Excellent Condition. This fine Parker writing instrument is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection.
