Type  Fountain pen

Product Name  Vacumatic ... the pattern is called "Shadow Wave" and this particular model is full size. This is one of the less common later Shadow Wave pens with the jeweler's cap band and the single jewel barrel.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker - 1942 (The imprint on the barrel is very clear, but you can't see the date on the nib)

Length  5-1/8"

Filling System  Vacumatic filler whcih we've restored with a new diaphragm and tested. It's working perfectly. (We will guarantee the filling system for one year from purchase.) 

Color  Brown striped with gold plated trim. Black blind cap and cap jewel. The cap band is just over 1/8" wide and has a striped design around it.

Nib  FINE gold Parker nib is firm and smooth, with excellent tipping material. 

Condition  Very nice condition. There are many small scratches on the cap and barrel, and some tooth marks on the upper cap. The plating is somewhat worn on the cap band, and with minor spots of wear on the corners of the ring around the cap jewel. The clip can be made to turn around the cap, which has resulted in only the lightest marks on the cap where the end of the clip makes contact with the cap. Despite it's wear this pen is quite attractive, with nice barrel clarity, and a readable imprint. Working very well after our restoration. 

Personalized with the initial J.F.Z. on the clip (see photos).

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country.

We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.
