Vintage Pens: Parker Vacumatic
Vintage Pens: 3098 Parker Vacumatic
Before they notice anything else, Parker Vacumatic (Major) hounds will jump on the fact this pen has a rarer "stacked coins" cap band. Golden Pearl stripes make up for some of the scratches. They also partially conceal the engraved "Edward McAuliffe" in gold letters. Its date code states it was made in 1945. We restored the vacumatic filler with a new diaphragm. No cracks blemish this pen. The clip is on tightly, and the blue diamond indicated the pen was guaranteed for the life of the original owner. Barrel clarity is poor but still possible at the right angle for light to pass through. Click the headline for a close-up of the original 14k gold nib. It writes an extra-fine to fine line with a hint of vibration but not bad at all for such a nib. 12.8cm capped.
