Hi there, I'm new to fountain pens and got this from my uncle's estate. From my research it is a second gen vacumatic, perhaps a major? I'm not too sure myself as I don't have too much experience with these sizes but I've attached some pictures so hopefully one of you guys can help me out!


Thanks so much.

Interesting pen, it doesn't look thick enough to be a senior maxima, and the triple cap band and non blue diamond clip rule the maxima out.


It appears to be a streamlined standard, still a very nice vac at that. I would send it to Danny Fudge to get it restored and you'll have a great pen to write with  :)

Streamlined Standard. Identical to the Long Major but with the three narrow cap bands. The Slender Maxima would be almost the same size but with a wide cap band and a larger two tone nib.
