Product Name Parker Vacumatic Senior (identified by length -- 5-3/8" -- and lockdown filling system .)
Manufacturer and Year Parker - 1937 (The imprint on the barrel is very clear -- 47, which means 4th quarter 1937. The date mark on the nib is dot 37 meaning  3rd qtr 1937 so it is probably original.)
Length 5-3/8 inches ("Oversize" model).
Filling System Vacumatic lockdown filler is in excellent working condition. The filling system has been restored by us with a new diaphragm, and it has been tested. (We will guarantee the filling system for one year from purchase.)
Color Emerald body and cap with gold plated trim-- excellent visibility thru the body. Both jewels are green striped. Arrow aka Deco style clip. Three cap bands.
Nib 14k fine firm nib. Writes smoothly with a wet line. Lots of tipping material in evidence. Two tone nib.





Gorgeous restored condition with no cracks or chips, though there are light signs of use. Very shiny. The imprint is excellent and very readable. The gold plated trim is super with no brassing whatsoever. The two jewels are green striped and in great 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.

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.
