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, 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 debutante size, which measures 4 3/4" in length capped and 5 5/16" posted.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition in a vibrant Azure color and has no chips, cracks or repairs. The cap has the split arrow gold filled Diamond clip and the Chevron Cap Band that displays a rich gold filled color with no brassing. The top jewel is black - I polished to bring back a beautiful shine and now looks fantastic. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "Geo. S. Parker Vacumatic Made in U.S.A. with date code 7 in the fourth quarter". The transparency of the barrel is fantastic and a person can easily see through the barrel, albeit there is very minor ambering. The blind cap securely fits. The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 4-5 presses to fill 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 firm fine point measuring roughly .59mm, measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample the NIB writes with an fine line to a medium line. The writing sample provided, the thinnest line measures at .46mm and the medium line measured with digital calipers is .79mm with normal 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 Azure Pearl Celluloid that is in Excellent Condition. This is a gorgeous Parker Vacumatic to add to any writing arsenal collection.
