Good day everyone!

I picked up this Parker Vacumatic some time ago. It has some sort of engraving on its barrel. It appears to be someone autograph. I do not know if it is done by the person after buying it or if this is was a special order. Any idea what it could be?

Best guess is [illegible] Moore

 

Didn't see any match under Google Images for "signature moore", also tried "moone" but that was flooded with Pokemon covers.

I acquired a Vacumatic that also had a signature on the barrel. It must have been an option.

Baptiste knew how to make a short job long

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

Back in the Day, engraved names on a fountain pen was a mark of Class.

Factory or good jewelers did them matter of course.

When one graduated from HS or Collage, got married, survived 25 years of marriage or retired after a lifetime with the same company.....one got a fancy pen with your name on it.

 

Helped keep the pen collectors of the day at bay.........

Had I been more than a worker's kid, I could have had any of my pens engraved....would still have them instead of having to buy a new one ever school year until 10th grade when expensive cartridges and the Bic drove me away from fountain pens...........pre-converter and no one ...pre-net...was spreading the word, cartridge could be filled with needle syringe....which may have been illegal to own then.

 

Besides which with great luck one could get ten BP re-fills for only 10 cents....a whole year's worth of ink...........left money to buy Spidy #1, which I folded up and put in my back pocket and swapped a week or two later. :headsmack: :gaah:

To advise for free is foolish, ........busybodies are ill liked by both factions.

 

 

The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.

Seconded. Many of these pens would cost hundreds in today's money... they were the icons of the day. If you got one personalized, that was a status symbol of just how successful you were.
