Type  Vintage Vacumatic-filling fountain pen.

Product Name  Duofold Vacumatic, aka "Duovac" Pen Set, the pen is the Junior size and the pencil is the Sub Deb size. These two models have the same trim.

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in USA -- 1940 (the date code is a clear 0 with one dot on the pen and a 0 with no dots on the pencil.)

Length  The pen measures 5-1/4" and the pencil measures 4-3/4". The pencil is the Sub Deb size.

Filling System  Vacumatic filler. It probably originally had an aluminum Speedline filler, which was replaced by the plastic version. We've restored the filling system with a new diaphragm and it's working perfectly. The pencil takes "thing" leads or modern 0.9mm leads. The leads extend and retract via a twist mechanism. There is an eraser beneath the cap.

Color  Green and brown (alternating with dark transluscent stripes) body and cap, with gold plated trim, two thin cap bands, and a black cap jewel.

Nib  FINE gold Parker Pen nib is smooth with nice tipping material. It is a narrow fine and not quite what we'd call a vintage extra fine.

Condition  Excellent condition. The pen has some brassing on the cap bands. The pen has more handwear on the cap than the barrel. The imprint is easily read and the barrel transparency is very strong. The pencil has handwear and a mark on the cip and a mark on the cone. Its imprint is also easily read. No cracks or chips, dings or dents, or personalization. They are both working very 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 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.
