Product Name Parker Vacumatic
Manufacturer and Year Parker - 1947 (the body is dated 1947 and the nib is dated 7 dot)
Length 5-1/16 inches. 
Filling System Vacumatic filler is in excellent working condition. We replaced the diaphragm and thoroughly tested the pen.
Color Black body and cap with gold plated trim-- excellent visibility thru the body.
Nib Parker USA fine nib. Writes smoothly and has a surprising amount of flex, which we conservatively call semi-flex. Lots of tipping material in evidence.




Excellent condition! The pen body is smooth and almost completely free from scratches and marks. The imprint is strong and readable. The cap has no bite marks or cracks. Very nice trim with minor brassing on the tip and high areas on the lower part of the clip.

(If you see a dark splotch on the left side of the clip in the photos, it turned out to be tarnish and polished off, so the clip will look better than you see it in the photos.)

We restored the pen and replaced the diaphragm. We'll guarantee it for the period of a year. This is a great pen which should be a dependable writer for years and years to come.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

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. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
