The components on this pen are vintage and are in good condition. The filling unit works nice and smoothly.The imprint on the barrel is legible if worn. Parker stopped making this model of vacumatic in 1948 in the usa and 1953 in canada. This 1930s vac has a replacement parker high quality medium/fine 14ct nib. Parker nibs are very high quality and this one is no exception. Tine alignment is spot on with some flex.
The trim is gold-filled and i don't see any brassing on the cap bands. The pocket clip is a military style and looks super and is nice and tight on the cap.
The cap and blind cap are good & have a nice sheen, the trim really shines too. Overall, a very nice example. Parker made the vacumatic in many sizes, both length and girth - typically the most common were the debutante (smallest), standard, major, and over-sized (later changed to maxima), and a few others as well the vacumatic had a long and prosperous run but over the course of the models run. This is an excellent vacumatic and would make a great addition to any fountain pen collection with a super sheen and gorgeous trim. This item is made of celluloid, gold clip, gold nib, vacumatic and gold bands.
