Vintage Pens: 0474: Parker: Vacumatic Desk Pen
We think you are going to love this Parker Vacumatic desk set. Why hide the best bit? It comes with a stub nib! We restored the pen with a new diaphragm several years ago for our own personal use. It still works great. No cracks, minimal wear. There is no date code on the imprint. However, the nickel-plated cap band has a star! Its 14k gold stub nib is about 1mm wide, and it writes with some feedback. We love it. The section of the pen is the grey pearl design like the rest of the pen. The light green base has a beautiful brown vein. The base has seen wear, with chips in its edges and scratches on its surfaces.All of the felt is missing. The pen is a shade loose in the trumpet and doesn't thread in. Not sure if it is the original base. The pen doesn't leak when it writes, but it does leak a little when sitting in the trumpet. Vintage pen measures 17.2cm. Overseas shipping might be more costly.

Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4703: Parker: Vacumatic
Parker Vacumatic fountain pens came in 3 main sizes: Maxima, Major and Debutante. This pen is the Debutante. It is slender and sleek for people who prefer less gaudy and smaller pens. Dazzling with the golden pearl design and gold-plated trim, this pen has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. Barrel clarity is down, as the pen has ambered a bit, but you can still see through it. No cracks or significant blemishes. The cap band has a little brassing. You will write a fine line with a little feedback with its 14k gold nib. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4698 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4698: Parker: 51
If something looks a little off about this Parker 51, that is because we restored it with a custom machined brass vacuum filling unit. It is made by Chicago's amazing Jack Lynch to exact specifications of the original filling unit. We also installed a new diaphragm, and the entire barrel acts as a reservoir. The pen has a little wear in places and a few specks of corrosion on the "lustraloy" cap. Its pocket clip is just a shade loose. We like the golden arrow clip contrasting with the steel cap. You will write a smooth fine line that also has a little feedback with the pen's 14k gold nib. A great daily driver. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4641 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 4641: Parker: 51
Nobody's perfect. Sometimes we just can't get the blind cap on a Parker 51 to line-up perfectly with the barrel after we replace the diaphragm. This is one such vintage pen. It works well, it is just a little off from what it should be. Plus, you can see dents in the gold-filled cap. Nevertheless, the pen still works well. You will write a medium line with a little feedback. Enjoy a bargain on a classic pen. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4517 Parker Oversize Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $899.99
Vintage Pens: 4517: Parker: Oversize Vacumatic
Perfection is difficult to achieve in vintage pens, but this 1940 Oversize Parker Vacumatic gets close. No cracks, only light wear and incredible barrel clarity with celluloid that is on the light orange-dark yellow spectrum. No brassing. A feint barrel imprint. Close to perfect two-tone plating for the 14k gold nib. (Click the headline for a close-up.) YET, as you can see on the main photo, the name "James A. Kunkel" is engraved on the barrel. We looked up the name, and there are too many James Kunkels to know who owned this specific pen. You'll write an extra-fine line that is a bit dry but can sometimes look fine. Restored and in great working order. Museum worthy rare burgundy...yet, still a good writer. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4515: Parker: Oversize Vacumatic
Straight out of 1935 comes this Oversize Parker Vacumatic! It is a handsome, reliable pen in black with gold trim. The love it received is well expressed in the wear on the cap and barrel. No cracks, but there is no hiding that this was a daily driver. Lots of brassing on the cap rings. Fully restored, this pen is in good working condition. Its 2-tone 14k gold nib retains the vast majority of its original plating. Please click the headline for a close-up. The silvery plate is only missing on the leading edges of the shoulders. You will write a firm fine line that is fairly smooth but with the shadow of some feedback. Its lockdown filler still locks down. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4528: Parker: Vacumatic Maxima
OMG! Behold the great grail pen of Parker fanatics....the Parker Vacumatic Maxima WITH a FLEXI nib! This vintage pen is amazing enough with minimal wear and a very clear, though a little ambered, barrel. Its aluminum speedline filler is in good working order. No cracks or brassing. The "name plate" in the jeweler's cap band has a little wonkiness in its plating, but there are no engravings. Yet, we know it's the pen's two-tone 14k gold nib that likely got your attention. You will write a wonderful extra-fine to 1mm line with its great flexibility. Not a wet noodle but definitely flexi, which is so rare in a Parker pen of this era. Some of the plating is coming off the nib. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.5cm capped.
