The 1930s and the Great Depression were tough times, and this double jewel Parker Vacumatic looks like one tough pen. We have restored it to great working order with a new diaphragm. The 14k gold nib writes a very nice fine line with a hint of feedback, as many fines feel to us. What makes it so tough? It doesn't have a single crack, but it is covered in scratches and deep dent-like impressions. The lockdown filler works great. It just has a lot of cosmetic flaws. Good imprint with a 1937 date code. Minor brassing on the clip and cap bands. Think of it as a pen with a whole lot of character that still works like a champ. 12.1cm capped.
