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 Split Arrow Clip, 2-Ring Cap Banding, and 14K NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the material of fountain pen. This Parker Vacumatic is a standard size that 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 with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the split arrow gold filled clip and is in very good condition displaying only the very slightest of wear. The 2-ring cap banding is in excellent condition with no brassing. The top jewel is black and has been polished to bring back a gorgeous shine. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "Geo. S. Parker Vacumatic Made in U.S.A. with date code 6, for 1946, in the 1st quarter". The transparency of the barrel good with some mild ambering, but one can see through the barrel. The blind cap securely fits.
The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 7-8 presses to fill nearly full. I have greased the filling unit so it operates smoothly and now operates flawlessly.
The Parker NIB is a 14K gold Split Arrow NIB that writes smoothly with a wet line. The actual writing portion of the 14K Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .65mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample, this NIB writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .71mm and the broad stroke measures 1.35mm when measured with digital calipers under medium 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 Vintage Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen displays a great Azure/Blue Pearl color. The Nib on this Parker Vac is wonderful to write with. I grade this Parker Vac in Excellent Condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
