    Default Parker Vac blind cap jewel and tassie

    I have 2 Parker Vacs which I would like to restore, however they are missing the tassies and the jewels from the blind caps (but perhaps unusually they still have the complete clip/jewel on the cap?). I have attached a picture. You will note that they are different models of vac. The smaller one has a lockdown filler, the larger one a speed line filler. I am not entirely sure which models these pens are. Both have some barrel transparency.

    I was trying to find a source to buy the tassies and jewels with no joy despite the wealth of websites/ebay sellers offering spare Parker parts. I would be wiling as a last resort to use m modern reproduction parts should such a thing exist.

    I would be grateful if anyone knows of a source for these parts that they send me a message or post here to let me know where I might acquire them.

    Thanks.

    Never heard of anyone selling parts like this, you may have better luck in seeking a complete blind cap than just a tassie.

    Have you tried a WTB in FPN?

    You could even have tried a WTB on here. It's doubtful but you never know - it might work.
    Repair people probably have things like this tucked away somewhere in case they ever get a pen in that needs one. Whether they would ever give up any of their valuable stock to someone else though......

    Your top pen looks like a Senior Maxima.

    Be nice if it was a Maxima - the nib is pretty large.

    For some reason and after many years of pondering , I do not know why? The tassies and jewels for early vac pens, do go missing, many like myself, when coming across them, will need them for their own pens, unless it is a particularly special customers pen.
