Green leaps off the cap and barrel of this 1945 Parker Vacumatic Major like living electricity in "The Matrix." We've restored it with a new diaphragm and wet sanding that gives it glassy, factory-fresh finish. There's still a little light wear visible, and the imprint is a bit faded on the right side. This pen has a slightly harder to find two-band cap band. There's a little brassing. The most noteworthy damage are rings around the section grip, and a couple of "comb teeth" missing from the inkfeed below the nib. The original 14k gold nib writes a nice, wet medium line. 12.6cm capped.
