Details

Type  Vac filling vintage fountain pen

Product Name  Parker Vacumatic Junior

Manufacturer and Year  Parker USA -- 1934 (The date code is a clear 44 on the barrel which indicates fourth quarter of 1934.)

Length  4-7/8".

Filling System  Vacumatic aluminum lockdown plunger filling system has been restored here at Peyton Street Pens and is in excellent working condition. The bladder has been replaced and the pen has been tested.

Color  Burgundy Pearl Marble is a marbled burgundy and amber (transparent) barrel with a burgundy and black cap,  a black section and two narrow cap bands. There is a black jewel on each end and the trim is gold plated. This may be the best barrel transparency we've ever seen in this color, it looks like the burgundy parts are floating.

Nib  FINE Flexible 14k nib.  It is marked with an "A".  Please see writing sample, below.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The barrel transparency is very strong and the color is bright and unblemished. The trim is also good with brassing on the narrow bands and just a bit of wear on the clip. The wear is mostly on the blind cap. It does not sit perfectly flush against the barrel and has many shallow bite marks. The trim on the blind cap can be manually spun in place. The barrel imprint is clear.

Excellent condition with no cracks, chips, dings, or dents.  This is a very pretty and rosy little pen, with excellent coloring and barrel transparency.  The barrel has moderate scratching especially near the end of the pen around the edge of the lockdown system as well as horizontal capping lines at the top of the barrel.  The cap has light scratching.  The clip looks excellent.  The two cap bands have some light scratching.  The end jewels are in great condition.  The imprints are clear.

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 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.
