Type Fountain pen
Product Name Parker Vacumatic Major
Manufacturer and Year Parker Canada - 1939 (The imprint on the barrel is very clear. The date mark on the nib is not visible, but it was made in the USA.)
Length 5-5/16 inches (Major size).
Filling System Vacumatic filler is in good working condition. The filling system had been restored when we acquired the pen and it has been tested. (We will guarantee the filling system for one year from purchase.)
Color Burgundy pearl body and cap with gold plated trim-- some visibility thru the body. Three cap bands.
Nib 14k fine nib. Originally two-tone, some of the masking is now worn off. Writes smoothly. Good tipping material in evidence, but it is  a little worn and it looks like the nib has been adjusted.







Gorgeous! The pen is in excellent used condition with no cracks or chips, only signs of light use. The imprint is bold and readable. The gold plated trim is excellent with no brassing except for the high points on the point of the clip. The two jewels are black and in excellent condition. 

We tested the pen with ink and found no leaks. This is a great pen which should be a dependable writer for years and years to come.

It has had some work done. The nib is probably a replacement since it was made in the USA, and the filling system was originally an aluminum Speedline style vac system, which has been replaced with the plastic vac system introduced in the 1940s.

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.
