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 Gold Filled Blue Diamond Clip, Gold Filled Chevron Cap Band and 14K NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the material of the fountain pen. This Parker Vacumatic is a major size, which measures 5 1/8" in length capped and 6" posted.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The cap has the Blue Diamond Split Arrow Gold Filled Clip and the Chevron Cap Band with cartouche that displays a rich gold filled color with no brassing. The top jewel is black and looks great. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "Geo. S. Parker Vacumatic Made in U.S.A. with date code 5 in the fourth quarter". The transparency of the barrel looks nearly perfect with vno ambering, an individual can easily see through the barrel and is one of the finest I have seen. The blind cap securely fits. The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 5-7 presses to fill 7/8 full.
The Parker NIB is a 14K gold split arrow NIB and has a medium point measuring roughly .75mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample the NIB writes with a medium to triple broad stroke line. The writing sample provided, the thinnest line measures at .60mm and the triple broad line is 1.80mm with firm to medium pressure when measured with digital calipers. 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 displays a beautiful deep Azure Pearl color. This Parker Vacumatic would easily grade in the Near Mint Condition. One would be hard pressed to find another Parker Vac in Azure with this type of condition and transparency. Certainly a collector grade fountain pen that is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
