Description

Details

Type  Vintage Fountain Pen

Product Name Parker VS (Vacumatic Successor)

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, Canada -- 1955 (based on date code on the nib)

Length  5-1/2"

Filling System  Button filler with aluminum button and plastic threaded surround. We restored the filling system and it works beautifully.  We'll guarantee it for a period of one year from purchase.

Color Brick color (reddish brown) body and cap with gold trim.  We're used to seeing these VS pens with metal caps, either gold filled or brushed steel, so it's rather uncommon to see one with a plastic cap and barrel ..... perhaps this is unique to Canada.

Nib  14k Vacumatic style fine nib. Lots of tipping material in evidence, the nib looks great.

Condition  Very nice condition.  No cracks, chips, dents, or dings.  The color is a rich reddish brown rust color;  the pen is substantial in size and nice looking.  The barrel has light to moderate scratching with some heavier scratches and bite marks on the end.  The area just above the cap lip is heavily scratched.  There is also moderate scratching around the clip.  The cap ring is excellent.  The clip and clip ring are a bit rough with some pitting, though they are shiny.  The black jewel on the top of the cap is in nice condition.  The imprints on the clip and nib are clear.

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.
