Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 463

If you've been following our online "show & tell" closely, you know that VPCer Christopher is a huge fan of the Parker 'Vacumatic'. A few days ago, he sent in this review of another lovely example (thank you, Christopher!)...

He writes: "Can any pen collector get enough Parker Vacumatics? I think not, and was very happy to add this fine early 1940s Debutante example to my collection.

Finished in silver pearl with silver fittings, the barrel transparency -once cleaned- could not have been better. Plus, atop the black section I found the 14K Gold Parker Vacumatic Arrow nib to be quite flexy. The Vacumatic filler is complete with a black plastic button covered by a third generation blind cap. Although not a large pen, posted quite adequate for any writer's hand. In closing, I am most satisfied to add this fine Parker pen to my collection."
