    It is Tibaldi's take on Parker's vacumatic filler. The bladder is missing in my picture above but you can see petrified remnants on that plunger thingy. I have intentionally held off on re-sacing to preserve color.

    The ink window/threading is actually a replacement by Brad Torelli. I bought it NOS but the ink window was weak and seemed badly manufactured (Mr. Torelli actually thought it was a contemporary replacement)
    That's the least one can expect from the master - threads look factory original.

    An opportunity to revive this thread since I received a cracker of a pen from a dear friend. It helped me expand my oversize Ancora collection - thanks Christof
