Details

Type  Fountain Pen, hard to find

Product Name  Parker Vacumatic Junior. This first generation pen is identified by the one-piece barrel, the nib, and the "Vacuum Filler" imprint on the barrel.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, USA -- 1932-33 (no date code, but it says "Vacuum Filler" on the barrel so we know it's from 1932-33.)

Length  4-13/16"

Filling System  Vacumatic filling system. We have fully restored the system, and will guarantee it for a year.

Color  Silver Pearl laminate body and cap with nickel plated trim.  The cap has an arrow clip and two narrow cap bands. The trim was originally nickel plated, but the cap bands look gold so they were probably originally nickel plated as the rest of the trim does not look like it was originally gold plated. Two striped jewels.

Nib  Fine gold nib is smooth. This is the so-called "Feather Together" nib unique to these early Vacs.

Condition  Excellent condition.  There was originally a crack in the cap, located midway, which followed the exact border of the laminated celluloid. We repaired the crack so the cap is structurally sound, however you can see the gap under magnification where the laminated layers separated (see photo). The section looks perfect.   The pen has hand wear on both the cap and barrel.  The trim looks uneven because the cap bands are gold colored and the rest of the trim is silver colored.  There are no chips, or personalization.  The imprint is clear.

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.

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.
