Vintage Pens: 3747: Parker: Vacumatic Shadow Wave
1930s Parker Vacumatics are our favorite Parker pens. We love the innovation of the Vacumatic filler, and the designs were so clever and original. Top of our charts is the Parker Vacumatic Shadow Wave design. This green one looks like something out of the hit 1990s movie "The Matrix." This is a larger sized Major, a little bigger than the later 1940s Majors. Ours also has a lock-down filler. We replaced the diaphragm, and the vintage pen is in excellent working order. Click the headline for close-ups of the pen and nib. A strong imprint shows this pen was made in the third quarter of 1938. Its 14k gold nib writes a very smooth, wet medium line. As a daily user in the 1930s, it has wear, but there are no cracks. Despite the wear, this vintage pen is a true gem. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3761: Parker: 51
Parker revolutionized both pen design and efficiency when it created the Parker 51. Its hooded nib was a stylistic success that also slowed the rate of ink evaporation while hiding an ink collector inkfeed that also maximized ink flow efficiency. Mixed with its already successful empty-barrel Vacumatic filler, it is no surprise the 51 became one of the most famous pens in history. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new diaphragm. It sports a "1/10th 16k gold-filled" cap with pinstripes, a harder-to-fine arrow-design cap band and a blank initials plate. The pen was a daily user, but the dents and dings to the cap are surprisingly shallow. No cracks are found in the hood or barrel, but you can see a ring around the hood, where the cap engages it. Its 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth, wet fine line. The blue diamond meant it had a warranty for the life of the original owner. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3746: Parker: Vacumatic
Incredible sums of money were invested at the height of the Great Depression to invent the Parker Vacumatic and bring it to market. Our azure blue Parker Vacumatic Major is a fully restored pen with new diaphragm. The grand invention was a hollow barrel with a rubber diaphragm in the tail to fill the entire pen with ink! You know the Nike sneakers the basketball players pump up...Parker came up with the idea 70 years before Nike. One of the rarer features about this vintage pen is its "stacked coins" cap band! You can see through the ambered barrel to tell how much ink remains inside it. No cracks or engravings. The cap and barrel show wear from daily use. You'll see its biggest flaw is a pregnant tail where the filling unit rests. It obscures the date code. Yet, the blind cap is perfectly flush with the barrel. Its 14k gold nib writes a Japanese extra-fine line smoothly when you find the sweet spot. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3100: Parker: 51
Hip, hip, hooray! The class of 1942 celebrated in style with this first-year 1941 Parker 51! Well, partly first year 51. Marketing material for the grand release of the Parker 51 in 1941 said that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time, which is why it was called the 51. Only first-year pens were given the aluminum tail jewel in the blind cap. Although the imprint seems to have worn off, the "Class of '42" engraving seems to be a nice verification of age. We are a little perplexed that the pen looks more teal blue than cedar blue, as would be appropriate. The sterling silver cap, which is in great condition, is a later model replacement cap. It still has a blue-diamond clip, but the jewel is plastic grey pearl--not aluminum. This vintage pen's diaphragm has been replaced, and it is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Light wear can be found in all the usual places. No cracks or dents. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2913: Parker: Vacumatic Maxima
Fenway Park has the Green Monster, and Parker seemed to try creating one of its own with this green Parker Vacumatic Maxima. Almost as wide as a Montblanc 149, at its widest point, the Maxima actually has a smaller, easier-to-handle, section for gripping. The pen is remarkably free from major wear. There's one shallow dimple in the blind cap and a few light scratches. The imprint is strong, and the pen has a 1942 date code. The cap jewel is made from the same striped celluloid as the barrel. The aluminum speedline filler has some wear but it moves easily. The pen is FULLY RESTORED with a new diaphragm. The nib is actually marked "14k / Parker / Vacumatic." It writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.5cm capped.
