Type Vintage mechanical pencil working well
Product Name Parker Vacumatic Demi Pencil. This is an unusual version with a medium wide plain cap band. This band is apparently found on the early second generation fountain pens with the newly introduced Speedline filling system .... as depicted in the wonderful Vacumatic book on page 134.
Manufacturer and Year Parker - USA - 1937
Length 4-3/4" 
Filling System This pencil takes 0.9mm ("thin") leads, and uses the traditional twist-method for extending the lead.
Color Grey striated body and cap, with a black cap jewel, and what looks like chrome plated trim. Thick plain cap band. Split Arrow clip.
Pertsonalization None.


Very nice condition, with some small scratches and scuffs on the barrel, the largest of which is pictured below. The trim is a bit worn all over, with some very minor brassing on the tip of the cone and the edges of the clip. Also, the clip rests a tiny ways from touching the cap, so it doesn't clip very tightly. The pencil is working well.

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.
