One of our favorite vintage pen innovations was the Parker Vacumatic. Inverting the ink sac into a diaphragm, the pen could fill the whole barrel with ink. Its golden pearl celluloid is very attractive. Our vintage pen is amazing looking. No cracks. Minimal wear. A little brassing on the cap band. It was restored with a new diaphragm by the famed Stuart Hawkinson. The two-tone arrow nib is amazing looking, with only a little wear to the platinum plating. You will write a fine line with a little feedback. It has a 1942 date code. The matching pencil was likely from 1937, and the jewel looks just like the golden pearl design. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract its 1.1mm lead. The cap is engraved "Rev. B C Stine." Pen measures 13.4cm capped.
