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 -- 1942 (The date code on the barrel is a clear 2 with one dot).

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 Grey 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  Semi-Flexible fine gold arrow style Parker USA nib. It's smooth with nice tipping, and is fairly springy. It has an A on the feed. Line varies from fine to medium, so the flex is not dramatic. Please see writing sample.

Condition  Very nice condition. The pen looks shiny and the transparency is good.  The coloration is quite dark.   The cap and barrel have moderate scratch marks throughout, with bite marks on the top of the cap and at the end of the barrel.  The section is also scratched.   The trim and clip are dull from scratching and plating wear.  The top jewel has a dent at the very tip.  There are no cracks or personalization.  The imprint is visible.

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.
