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 Clip, Gold Filled Two Ring Cap Banding and 14K NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished & Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and clarity of fountain pen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no cracks or repairs. The barrel has excellent transparency with a person easily seeing through the barrel, albeit with ambering. The cap has the Feather Gold Filled Clip and the double cap bands displays a wonderful gold filled color with no brassing. The top and bottom jewels are black and have been polished to look great again. The barrel is stamped with a light imprint, but can easily be read, "GEO S. PARKER PARKER VACUMATIC MADE IN USA PATD with 1934 date code in the 4th quarter". The jeweled blind cap securely fits. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen is a Junior Model that has a wider diameter cap and barrel than the standard juniors. It measures 4 7/8" in length capped and 5 13/16" posted.
The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 5 presses and it will fill full. This Vacumatic has the lock down filling unit, typical on 1st generation Vacumatics. This filling unit has been greased and now operates smoothly and works flawlessly.
The 14K Parker Vacumatic NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .71mm when measured with digital calipers. The NIB is the split arrow 14K Vacumatic that is in excellent cosmetic and creates a very smooth writing stroke. The writing sample provided in the image has a medium stroke that measures .63mm and can flex to a broad stroke of roughly .97mm with medium 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 Burgundy Mottled Celluloid and would grade it in Excellent Condition. This is collector worthy and the condition stands behind this gorgeous Parker. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
