Type Vintage mechanical pencil, oversize, working well. Rare model.
Product Name Vacumatic Oversize Mechanical Pencil.
Manufacturer and Year Parker, made in USA -- 1936 (the date code is a clear 26).
Length 5-1/4" and quite fat.
Filling System This pencil takes 1.1mm (or "Thick") leads, which it extends via the traditional twist mechanism. It's working well, and we'll include a small pack of leads.
Color Golden Pearl body and cap, matching striped cap jewel with gold plated trim, an art deco arrow clip, and three thin cap bands.
Condition Excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or dings. The pencil is personalized with "C. F. VOSS", though that is fairly well hidden by the matterial's pattern. Microscratching only, and the pen is quite shiny. The imprint is crisp and easily legible. The clip has some plating wear on the sides, but the upper edges look great. The tassie looks great, with no brassing. The pencil is very pretty with contrasting shades of rings that have some transluscence when it is turned.
