Rare Vintage Parker Vacumatic Standard Fountain Pen Special Purpose STAR Nib
For your consideration is a restored 1933 Parker vacumatic standard fountain pen in silver pearl. The nib is really a rare find – these special purpose nibs were available at extra cost, denoted by a letter on the feed and 2 stars on the nib. The feed is marked “H”, so this is a Stenographic, Short nib. I’m a fan of these first generation pens because they are much nicer, with striped sections, two tone nibs, striped jewels, and metal filler rather than the disposable plastic wartime fillers. It’s not easy to find a clean silver pearl vac – condition of this is excellent+ with really nice transparency, good silver trim, and minimal wear. Usually silver pearls are found discolored with no transparency and pitted trim but this one is in great shape. This pen has been thoroughly disassembled, cleaned, and restored with a new diaphragm. Finally polished to bring out the shine of the silver pearl celluloid. The cap and body are in excellent condition. No cracks or dings. Striped section and striped jewels. The color is extremely vibrant and transparency is excellent. Crisp imprint dating this to 1933, the year when they switched from “vacuum filler” to vacumatic imprint. The chrome trim is in great condition with no brassing. Hard to find this nice. The transparency is good but a bit ambered. It’s a very bright orange color when they are usually found extremely ambered. The pen has been thoroughly disassembled and cleaned. The filler unit was removed and serviced with a new latex diaphragm. Pen was then re-assembled and tested. The 14k 2-tone special purpose nib is fine in width – it writes great. Mirror like 2-tone rhodium masked finish. This is an excellent example of this model, both cosmetically and for practical writing. It would make a great addition to your collection or as a daily driver. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Have a look at my other pens.
