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 Blue Diamond Arrow Clip, Chevron Cap Band (///\\\), Blind Cap Tassie, and 14K NIB. I have Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of fountain pen. This Parker Golden Pearl has some fabulous color, some the best I have seen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition showing no chips, cracks or repairs with the cap always secure tightly to the barrel. The cap has the Gold Filled Blue Diamond Arrow Clip which displays no brassing. The Chevron Cap Band displays no brassing as well. The top jewel is striped and the bottom jewel is black, each has been polished bring back a beautiful shine. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "Geo. S. Parker Vacumatic Made in U.S.A. with date code 9 (for 1939) in the 4th Quarter". The transparency of the barrel is good and a person can easily see through the barrel with only minor to mild ambering. The blind cap securely fits. This Parker Vacumatic is a long major size that measures 5 5/16" in length capped and 6 5/16" posted.
This Parker Vacumatic has the proper 2md Generation Speedline Filling Unit. The Vacumatic Filling System works great, typically in my tests with water about 9 to 12 presses to fill full. I have greased the filling unit and now operates smoothly and function as it originally was designed to.
The Parker NIB is a 14K split arrow NIB with a "9" date code for 1939 which makes the Nib and body a marriage. The two-tone Nib does display roughly 50% of the platinum coating wearing away - it does not compromise the nib's writing experience - just the aesthetics. The iridium is wonderful and creates a great writing experience. This nib has a fine point measuring roughly .51mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided in the image ranges from a fine stroke that measures .55mm to a medium stroke of roughly .70mm with normal pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale 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.
These Parker Vacumatic Fountain Pen in Golden Pearl with Double Jewels are becoming harder and harder to acquire in the Long Major size. It is a beautiful, clean fountain pen with bright gold filled trim. I would grade this Parker Vacumatic in Excellent Condition after my restoration and is ready to write.
