bateneco posted a topic in ParkerMy grandfather recently passed away, and one of the items that he left to me was a Parker Vacumatic. I have tried to figure out more about the pen from online articles and unofficial Parker collector sites, but so far have not had much luck. It seems that this particular pen is somewhat different than many of the most common subtypes. I was hoping that someone here might have the expertise to help me identify the when it was made, the subtype/style, and any other relevant information that could help me in appreciating this final gift from my grandfather. While I would never sell it, any insights you had regarding its value would also be greatly appreciated. I have uploaded several photos of the pen's various elements to this album: https://imgur.com/fpngallery/ne786kA Some of the features of this pen seem somewhat rare or abnormal: - the blue diamond on the clip is actually black (perhaps due to age?) - the band around the bottom of the cap is silver in color and comprised of fine horizontal lines (seems like a different design than most) - nib has an arrow etched on it, but is gold (not two-toned) Thank you in advance, and I look forward to any information you can provide!
