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 Banding and 14K 2-Tone NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the material of the Fountain Pen & Pencil. This Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen is a Long Major Model that measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 6 3/8" posted.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs. The cap has the Blue Diamond Gold Filled Clip with no brassing. The cap band has a cartouche and chevron design and has a high polished on wonderful gold filled banding with no brassing. The top jewel and bottom jewels black and have been polished to bring back a high shine. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "Geo. S. Parker Vacumatic Made in U.S.A. with date code 1 in the fourth quarter". The transparency of the barrel is fantastic, albeit with ambering. The jeweled blind cap securely fits. There are no personalizations or monograms on the barrel or cap.
The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 5 to 6 presses and it will fill full. This filling unit operates smoothly and works flawlessly.
The 14K Parker 2-Tone NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .62mm, measured with digital calipers. This NIB has the split arrow 2-Tone 14K NIB, the platinum plating is mostly worn away - about 30% of the plating displays - it doesn't effect the writing of the NIB / Pen and just point it out for clarity sake. When writing a sample the NIB smoothly and with an extra fine line and can flex to a double broad stroke. The writing sample provided, the thinnest line measures at a .37mm stroke and the double broad line measured with digital calipers is roughly 1.20mm 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. It is operational and works as it should.
The Parker Clam Shell Box is a Model #246. I would consider the box to be in fine condition with no tears or major ink stains.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is a Gorgeous Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen Set in the Azure Pearl Celluloid that is in Excellent condition. The coloring is gorgeous and would sure be a lovely addition to any collection. It is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection.
