Some days ago I bougth at Mexico city (where I live) a faceted fountain pen, wich looks as a Parker Vacumatic oversize.


I was searching in the web in orden to confirm if it is an authentic Parker, but I didn't get any information or images about faceted Parkers.


The pen description is:


Barrel engraved: "Parker Vacumatic USA" (the "V" is engraved on the "R")

Long with cap: 13.5 centimeters (5 1/4")

Barrel diameter: 1.6 centimeters (5/8")

Color: Borgoña

Faceted barrel and cap 


Apparently, the original nib was replaced with a "Harley Davidson" nib (!!!).


Some members in the First Stop forum had gave me very interesting information, wich says the pen it's not a genuine Parker.


Some people says it's an italian pen. Other people says he has similar pens, but are diferente in the part of the barrel that screw in the cap. Someone more says the engraved is fancy, so it can't be an italian pen.


Can somebody in this Parker forum help me whit some aditional information?


I'm attaching some pictures.
