Description

Details

Type  Fountain Pen

Product Name Parker VP (VP stands for Very Personal)

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, USA -- 1962-64.

Length  5-9/16"

Filling System  Takes Parker cartridges or the unique Parker VP converter. This converter is unique to this model and has a very thin neck which is prone to cracking. The converter was damaged when we received the pen, and we repaired the damage. In doing so, the glue that we used picked up some residual ink, and is now colored blue, and is visible when you open up the pen. (We understand Ron Zorn of Main Street Pens makes a replacement converter for this model.)

Color This pen came in four colors with two cap variants. This is the black and gold version. The cap is marked 1/10 12k GF. Pearlescent jewels on cap and end of barrel. 

Nib  Large semi-hooded 14k nib. It is labeled 66 which identifies it as a medium. These nibs were made to work for any writing angle and include a reference ring on the collar.

Condition  Excellent condition. Some microscratching on the barrel. The cap has little spots of plating loss in the lined grooves, which you can see in the photo below; the closeup pictures really magnify these spots, they're much less noticeable in hand. Both jewels are in excellent condition. The cap imprints are clear. No cracks, scratches, chips, or dents.

Policies

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.

Promo Codes and Coupons: You need to be registered and logged in in order to use one of our promo codes. They can each only be used once per customer. If you have problems getting a promo code to be accepted, sometimes it helps to log out and log back in again.
