Details

Product Name  Duofold Vacumatic aka "Duovac." This is the smaller Ingenue size, a top line model with a blue diamond. (The standard line version of the smaller pen was called a Junior.)

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, USA -- 1943 (The date code is a clear 3 with no dots).

Length  Just a hair over 4-3/4 inches.

Filling System  Standard plastic Vacumatic filler. We've fully restored and tested it, it's working very well.

Color  Green, brown, and gray stripes alternating with transparent green and yellow stripes. It has a blue diamond clip, a black cap jewel, and a "chevron" style cap band.

Nib  FINE two-tone gold nip is smooth with nice tipping material. It has a bit of give to it. The silver colored masking is very thin and has worn off completely on the tines.

Condition  Excellent + condition, with great trim. There's a few marks of plating wear on the cap band and on the tassie around the cap jewel. The cap and barrel have some light scratches but no major markings. The barrel transparency is good but the two tone nature of its transparent portions imply ink staining. The imprint is legible. There are no cracks or chips, dings, dents, or personalization. The pen has been fully restored and it's working well.

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 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.
