Parker Vacumatic celluloid bordering on perfection is difficult to find...but here it is! More than just crack and scratch free, when you hold this beautiful azure pearl Vacumatic barrel up to the light, the ink-view parts are insanely close to new-out-of-the-factory yellow-green. No amber! For many people that makes this a museum worth vintage pen. It helps that it has a 1st quarter 1936 date code and a double jewel design. The jewels are black, not blue striped. Click the headline for close-ups. The filling unit is black plastic and not the original aluminum. The 14k monotone gold nib writes a very smooth medium line...but is not two-tone. Unlike the pen, the matching pencil is heavily used but still working...and from a different year. Pen measures 13cm capped.
