Perfection isn't easy to come by in the world of vintage pens, but this Parker Vacumatic Debutante set in azure pearl comes pretty damned close. Click the link for close-ups. A double-jewel pen from 1940, its barrel has nearly perfect barrel transparency. Its filler has been restored with a fresh diaphragm. Minimal wear blemishes the gleaming cap and barrel. No cracks. No tarnish. Its original 2-tone 14k gold nib is losing some of its silvery tone, but it writes a very nice, reasonably smooth extra-fine line. Take a closer look at the writing on the aluminum filler! The matching pencil is as perfect in good working order. No eraser or spare leads, but a lead is loaded into the tip. Includes a stellar but not perfect clam-shell box. Pen measures 12cm capped.
