Description

Details

Type  Vintage Vacumatic filling fountain pen.

Product Name  Vacumatic Junior. The Junior is more or less the same size as the Major, however it has two thin cap rings and a "split arrow" clip as opposed to the Blue Diamond clip. 

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in USA -- 1940s (there are no imprints on this pen to indicate the date, but the plastic plunger was introduced in 1942, and the Vac unit retaining collar is metal. Parker switched to making the retaining collar in plastic from 1943 or 1944, and went back to metal after the end of the war)

Length   5-1/16".

Filling System   Later Vacumatic filling system. We have fully restored it with a new diaphragm and it's working perfectly. It has the plastic plunger.

Color  Grey, black, and amber striped finish.  The trim is nickel plated to match the Silver Pearl and is the only Vacumatic to have nickel plated trim. The cap jewel is black. Thin double cap band and a split arrow clip. 

Nib  Fine gold arrow style Parker USA nib. This two-toned style is one of the nicer Parker nibs, and we believe that it is upgraded from the original nib that came with this pen.

Condition  Very nice condition. The pen looks shiny and the transparency is excellent. The cap and blind cap have a couple of very small dents near the ends, but there are no major scratches, and no cracks. The section looks great, with no scratches. The trim and clip are dull from scratching and plating wear.  The top jewel has a couple of small dents. There are no cracks or personalization.

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%.

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.
