    Default FS: Parker Vacumatic Junior - great clarity!

    SOLD: Parker Vacumatic Junior. Shiny black with gold bands, with great clarity to the ink reservoir. Some wear to the clip. Fully restored with new diaphragm. 1-year warranty on function. 0.6mm tip. Date code: 2. The celluloid of this pen is fantastic, with no dings, no dents, no scratches and no teethmarks. Like a black car, it really stands out when polished.

    $75 Price includes shipping anywhere served by the USPS. More elsewhere. The first PM that reads "I'll take the black Vac" with your email address and shipping address holds it pending prompt payment of Square invoice emailed to you. Questions welcome but they do not hold the pen.

    Hi Fred! How fine is the point on that nib? I can't quite get a read on it from the pictures.

    That is one nice looking pen Fred for not a lot of money, superb barrel clarity and very good condition.

    How does it write? I like very smooth, wettish nibs. Is it returnable if I don't like the way it writes?

    It is an F with medium ink flow that's smoother than an EF, not as smooth as an M or an F Triumph nib. Function guaranteed for a year. Return in the same condition within a week of receipt (shipping and transaction fees not refundable unless defective). Here is the Vac filled with Aurora black on Rhodia paper.


    The Vac is still available!

    Wasn't aware that some vacumatics had 'softer' nibs from the writing sample.

    Oh, I've had Vacs with full flex. Not common, but they're out there.

    SOLD
