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 Feather & Arrow Clip, Three Ring Cap Banding and 14K 2-Tone NIB. Buffed and Polished the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy of the Fountain Pen & Pencil.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs. The cap has the Feather Arrow Gold Filled clip with no brassing and the cap band displays a wonderful gold filled color with no brassing. The top jewel and bottom jewels are the same pattern as the cap and barrel and look great. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "Geo. S. Parker Vacumatic Made in U.S.A. with date code 6 in the fourth quarter". The transparency of the barrel is fantastic, albeit with Ambering. The jeweled blind cap securely fits. There is a monogram on the barrel on the fountain pen that reads, "Irene Kosch" and the pencil, "H. F. Patterson".
The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 5 to 6 presses and it will fill full. This is a 1st Generation Parker Vacumatic has the correct Lockdown filling unit. This filling unit is smooth in it's operation and works flawlessly.
This Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen is a 1st Generation Junior Model that measures 4 7/8" in length capped and 5 3/4" posted. The 14K Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .62mm, measured with digital calipers. The NIB has the split arrow, 2-Tone 14K NIB. When writing a sample the NIB very smoothly and with a fine line and can flex to a broad stroke. The writing sample provided, the thinnest line measures at a medium .51mm stroke and the broad line measured with digital calipers is roughly 1.28mm with firm pressure. The sample was done with the actual pen in the images that is listed for sale. I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Black Ink.
The pencil is in fantastic condition in it's own right. The banding, clip and point display no brassing.
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 Set in the Emerald Green Pearl Celluloid that is in exceptional condition and would grade it in the Excellent to Fine Condition. It is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection.
