1941 parker vacumatic oversize blue azure fountain pen. Very good condition, my opinion only. With this one having a hard time parting with as a few others, as you can see by the price's. This is in very good condition.
With the service that was performed prior i do not know what has been replaced and not original. Does not leak, have had this inked up from time to time with no leaks.There is no date code, so guessing 41 with the speedline system. I have not taken apart the section and feed, there is a shunt for the feed where ink flows down it to the nib, why it is there i have no clue, decided to leave it as is. Loads up fine with ink. Cap, barrel and blind cap are in very good condition, no cracks, splits, monograms, very nice sheen.
With a loupe you can see micro scratches from pocket time etc. Looks like a couple of tool marks on the section, you can see one in pic#4 threads are in very good condition. Trim very good also, some very/very minor brassing on the pocket clip (visible with a loupe). Single jeweled very good , no chipping.Good imprint, no date code thou. Nib 14k, what can i say very good, lots of tip, very little wear to the nib, good tip. Cap diameter at the opening is a hair over 13mm.
Also if pen sits for a few days, it does have a dry start. Parker vacumatic made in u. Jewlers band: 5mm (no engravings to it).
