Anyone ever seen this colour of Shadow Wave in a Vac before? Now if only it didn't have the hole in the blind cap!!!!!

Yes, I have the same exact pen. The blind cap can be repaired or replaced, as it is plain black.

Oh!!!!!!!! Is it really that wonderful colour? Binder's examples don't show anything like that.

That's a Shadow Wave in green. If you look on Richard Binder's Vacumatic page you will see it listed at the bottom with the rest of the Vac Jr. colors.
It's a nice set, especially at that price.

Yes, that's where I looked, but I guess the sellers photos colour balance may be out a bit. Binder's green looks more grassy, this one looks almost teal. Someone will get a bargain - maybe.

A 5th round draft pick at an auction I just picked up.
1st round Parker orange Duofold $125 - $150 [ Can not recall ]
2nd round P61 with rainbow cap. $90
3rd & 4th round P51 areo's Grey 3 of them. $ 50 - $70
5th round Parker Vacumatic Demi in Burgundy Shadow Wave $45
I think I got the best deal.

It's a feature, a rare "Porthole Demonstrator"!!!!!
It is a lovely set, otherwise, though, isn't it? That color is really wonderful. Hmm. Maybe I should bid.... Naah, what would I do with a mechanical pencil that I can't already do with a Berol Turquoise (especially after a friend "dumpster dived" and gave me a bunch of packages of replacement leads in various hardness ratings; those will probably take me a good ten to twenty years to use up, since I had just gotten a package of 2H leads recently in an art store).

Just been watching this pen set sell for $119. Anyone here get it? Hope so. It got too dear for me a while ago factoring in eBay's Global Shipping cash grab and mailing cost. I asked the seller if she'd ship directly to me - she wouldn't. Enjoy it wherever you are!
